Rugby 1st XV Make County Cup Semis
Wednesday, 16 November 2011
Bolton School 1st XV rugby team has reached the U18 Lancashire Cup semi-finals for the first time with a fine quarter final win away at St Edwards, Liverpool.
After falling behind to an early St Edwards try, Bolton had to work hard to get any momentum and eventually took the lead with a try from Richard Sanders, converted by Captain David Flaherty. The second half saw Bolton return to a more flowing game and James Dunn and Curtis Edwards both scored good tries after hard work from the pack. Flaherty kicked the extras to give Bolton a hard fought 21-5 away win.
The County cup semi final will see Bolton travel away again to the winners of two of our closest rivals Manchester Grammar or Hutton Grammar.
