THE Port Moresby International Under-15 girls did it again on Saturday when they beat St Joseph’s International 15-0 in the National Capital District Schools rugby competition at Monier Rugby Park.

St Joseph’s, led by enforcer Delma Tan, had every option to score but failed to take the right options.

The POMIS U15 boys came out firing to beat St Joseph’s 17-6 in a tensely contested encounter.

It was a closely fought game in the first half as both teams put up strong defensive lines, resulting in no tries.

But it was POMIS who showed class with some classic play in the back line and good support play by forwards giving them opportunities to score three tries, one of which was converted to take the win 17- 6.

In the other match, Boroko Primary beat Port Moresby Grammar 12-10.

In the U13 boys division, POMIS hammered St Joseph’s 15-5, while Boroko Primary beat Port Moresby Grammar 7-5 in a close game.

POMIS thrashed the East Boroko boys 42-0 in the U17 division,while in the U15 girls division, POMIS showed class in defeating St Joseph’s 15-0.
