Hilton blow Saints away

Festival hosts St Stithians suffered a 34-10 defeat at the hands of Hilton College in the final game on day two.

Hilton, who outscored Saints five tries to two, opened their account in the fifth minute through winger Darren McGhee. St Stithians struggled to find form or rhythm and 25 minutes into the contest they found themselves down by 29, having conceded three more tries and a penalty.

They did respond with two unconverted tries by Callum Ferguson and Dane Kotze, but the fifth five-pointer by Hilton ended any hopes the hosts had of staging a comeback.
