It was a third-time lucky fairy-tale ending for Kelston Boys’ High School who were crowned National Secondary Schools title winners today at Pulman Park. The boys in red finally put the heartache of 2016 and 2017’s finals losses behind them, sealing a sweet 16-14 victory over St. Paul’s College.
Kelston Boys’ High School captain, Kadiyae Ioka was named MVP of the Permiership final and was pleased his team could get the win to round-off his final year at the tournament as a year 13 student.
“For two years now we’ve come up against Southern Cross Campus in the final and been runners-up. This year we can finally take the shield home,”
“It’s been one of the best weeks of my life. Our team have really bonded and this tournament is always an amazing experience but this one has to be the best yet,” he said.
However, Ioka was the first to admit the match was no easy win.
