John McGlashan take overall exchange honours

Gavin Miller —

This year exchange was played in unusually balmy weather conditions in Dunedin on July the 5th.

The top performing sport for TBHS was Football with three wins from three in well played games. The Junior side were in control throughout their 4-0 victory. The 2nd XI created a number of chances but were not able to capitalise on them until an exciting final five minutes when two goals gave them a 3-2 win. The 1st XI who have just received news of gaining a wildcard entry into the Premier National Tournament in Napier in August completed the clean sweep with a hard fought 2-1 result in their favour.

Both Hockey matches were hard fought draws, the Colts match went to a penalty shoot out won by Timaru. Both Basketball matches were controlled by polished McGlashan combinations. The Senior match was 83-59 and the Junior 77-46 to the home side.

A strong, well-drilled McGlashan side were too strong for TBHS in the 1st XV encounter winning 45-0. The 2nd XV game was competitive for much of the contest before McGlashan dominated the final quarter in a 36-20 win. In the Colts match Timaru turned a half-time deficit around with a strong second half performance to eventually win comfortably 43-17. A tight Under 14 match went to McGlashan 15-10.

TBHS recorded a pleasing win 353-348 in the Trap-shooting at Waldronville. The Chess 14-2, Badminton 5-1 and Debating 2-1 all went the way of McGlashan and helped them take overall honours 8-6 with one drawn fixture.
