Match Report for

Belmont High School (1st) vs. St John's Prep (MA) (1st)
11 April 2018

Location: Belmont High School

SCORE
Belmont High School: 38    St John's Prep (MA): 23


SJP got off to a quick 13-0 lead, with 2 breakaway tries and a penalty conversion near the try zone. Belmont gained their composure and came back with 2 tries and both had successful conversions putting the game at 14-13 Belmont.

In the 30th minute, Belmont received a yellow card for a dump tackle (more in the disciplinary report). Only 3 minutes later, Belmont made a high tackle and received another yellow card. Each team kicked a successful conversion before half to make it 17-16 Belmont.

After half time, it was all Belmont, who scored 3 tries all with successful conversions (on a cold and windy evening no less). SJP received a YC after 56 minutes for a dump tackle too (see report).

Overall play was fast and physical and was played at a high level for high school. I had a tough time managing the scrums, as they were coming apart late, and I couldn't tell which side was the offending party.
