Old Boys vs Blues final


Old Boys and Excelsior will contest the Citizens Shield final after winning their semifinals at the Whitestone Contracting Stadium on Saturday.

Blues downed Athletic Marist 34-25 in the earlier of the two fixtures to secure a place in the final before Old Boys continued their quest for a fifth successive shield triumph with a 53-12 mauling of Kurow.

Excelsior player-coach Troy Looms said he was pleased with his side’s second half, following a cagey first period, with Blues narrowly leading 17-15 at the interval.
