WAP to meet Gymnasium in schools Rugby final

Windhoek Afrikaans Private School booked their place in the final of the Momentum Rugby Board's Trophy League after beating Moria Private School by 40 points to 30 in the semi-final played at the Dr Hage Geingob stadium on Saturday.
A record turn-out was recorded as players from different schools were battling it out in the under 14 , 15 and 19 leagues. Ultimately, all eyes were on the super league's semi-final between Windhoek Afrikaans Private School and newcomers Moria Private School from Outjo.
Despite going in as the underdogs, the boys from the North did not feel inferior against the much more experienced team from Windhoek Afrikaans Private School.
The young and energetic players had nothing else but pride to play for, as they put up top skills in all areas of the game.
With both teams pulling out all the stops, the field of play appeared levelled. Hosts WAP nonetheless recorded 23 points at half time , while the visiting side Moria was trailing behind with 13 points.
The game changed in the second half as Moria maximised its offense and caught up with WAP's score line, leaving them both on twenty-three points.
Experience however persevered as WAP players penetrated Moria’s defence line and recorded another set of tries.
WAP won the match by 40 points to 30, while victors’ eighth man, Bernhardt Wessels, was nominated as the man of the match.
WAP will meet Windhoek Gymnasium in next weekend’s final.
