It is that time again, St Kevin’s College and Waitaki Boys’ High School will clash today in the annual Blood Match.
The occasion galvanises the interest of a town and beyond, through one of the most passionate school rivalries where intensity is only matched by mutual respect.
St Kevin’s College have experienced five years of hurt, the longest losing streak for more than half a century, and a defeat today would match the longest baron spell since the competition’s inception in 1934.
Waitaki Boys’ may have made the last eight of the Highlanders competition, while SKC bowed out with grace, the holders also took a 6-5 victory over their closest rivals earlier in the campaign but form will be irrelevant today.
