SOAS College collected another trophy for their school’s cabinet for 2008 by winning the National Under-18 Championship.
SOAS College had a great season this year. Unbeaten in five matches, scoring 180 points ( an average of 36 points per match) and conceding only 12 points. Consistency is the secret of their success.
They were trailing Belait District Combined school the whole season, but with one match in hand, the game against Sekolah Sharif Ali was the decider for the championship. The only team that can manage to stop the supremacy of SOAS college was Belait District combined school, but where they had the beat them in the cruncher match a couple of weeks back.
SOAS college only needed a draw to win the championship, but a draw wasn’t good enough for the boys. They wanted legacy to win the championship with 100% win. They proved that they can do it by beating Sekolah Sharif Ali 36-0.
In the earlier game, Sekolah Awang Semaun put a good fight against the fast and furious Sixth Form Center. Unfortunately they lost the game 24-12.
Well done to all the boys who participated in this year’s championship and good job to all the coaches, referees, water boys and supporters. They’ll be one more game to go … JIS vs Sekolah Awang Semaun for 3rd placing.
I had my refereeing debut today. How was it? – ed
