Golding double and cool Sacred Heart heads books an Auckland final in Christchurch

College Sport Media:

A double to Thomas Golding has booked Mt Albert Grammar School a spot in their first Lotto Premier Boys Final since the year they won the competition in 2012. Meanwhile Sacred Heart (Auckland) have made their fifth straight final in the row dating back to 2014.

Sacred Heart and St Pats Wellington who already met in a 1 all draw on Tuesday, will go down as one of the better semi finals for a while. Going all the way to spot kicks after an end to end affair, with both team’s hitting the woodwork multiple times.

Sacred Heart were hoping to put to bed their last memory of penalties at a national tournament which was the final last year against Hamilton Boys High School. St Pats Wellington already has penalty practice at this tournament when they beat Nelson College in the Quarterfinal the day before.

Sacred Heart made amends for that penalty loss a year ago, as Kingsley Sinclair, Jack Duncan, Malcolm Young, Max Ongley and Riwai Stanton all converting from the spot as they booked a spot in the final for yet another a year.
