Wynberg Boys remained unbeaten at the St Stithians' Easter Festival with a 17-16 win over Maritzburg College.

Fullback Karl Martin gave the Cape side an early 7-0 lead when he converted his own try in the fifth minute. But Maritzburg hit back with centre Marcel Coetzee's goal just before half-time.

Immediately after the restart Maritzburg took the lead when flyhalf Jordan Koekemoer slid in, bringing the score to 8-7. Both sides found the tryline again; but while Maritzburg's touchdown was unconverted, a Coetzee penalty took them into the lead again at 16-14.

It was a lead that would last for all but three minutes, when Martin stepped up to kicked the winning penalty, ending his personal tally on 12 points and securing a nail-biting win for his team.
