CHS Under 14 Rugby League


Maclean High School v's Evans River High School @ Maclean Showground

Maclean High School played Evans River High School in the opening round of the CHS u14 Rugby League competition at Maclean Showground.

Ethan Foster opened the scoring in the 2ndminute with a huge blockbusting run. Julian Torrens kicked the conversion: Maclean High 6; Evans River 0.

Shortly after, Elijah Winitana scored and Julian Torrens kicked the conversion to take Maclean High to a lead of 12 points to 0.

Mason Horton and Ethan Foster scored tries soon after and, again, Julian Torrens kicked the conversions: Maclean High 24; Evans River 0.

Julian Torrens then scored a try with a runaway solo to cement Maclean High's Lead. He converted his own try: Maclean High 30; Evans River 0.

Evans River finally got to see some ball and a few good set plays marched them up the field. They scored in the corner, but missed the conversion: Maclean High 30; Evans River 4.

Just prior to halftime, Mark Waters made a lightning move down the right wing to score in the corner. Julian Torrens missed the conversion. Halftime score: Maclean High 34; Evans River 4.

Very happy with the boys first half, MHS coaches Mr White and Mr Woods wanted to give the entire squad of 20 players equal time on the field.

The second half commenced like the first half did for Maclean High, with a try to Ethan Foster in the 2ndminute. Julian Torrens kicked the conversion: Maclean High 40; Evans River 4

After some time, inspired again, Julian Torrens scored a long range try. He kicked the conversion and this gave Maclean High a lead of 46 to Evans River's 4, the final score.

Julian Torrens was Man of the Match, with special mention to Hooker Mason Horton, Prop Elijah Winitana and our Captain and Lock Ethan Foster.

The next round of the competition will see Maclean High School play the winner of the match between Kadina High and Casino High.
