The 1st XV took on St Peter’s College who are the 3rd on the table. In an evenly contested first half, a couple of defensive lapses saw St Peter’s score twice just before half-time to take a 15 nil lead. Liston hit back with a try to Will Couper and were unfortunate not to be awarded 2 tries. A game of missed opportunities meant St Peter’s won were deserved winners. Next Up Sacred Heart College
The 2nd XV had their first loss of the season going down 19-21 to Auckland Grammar. Liston put themselves under pressure through conceding too many penalties. The Under 15 team bounced back to a good 43-5 win over Massey High School, the Under 14s lost to a very good Auckland Grammar side and the Under 13s played a competitive game against Ponsonby.
This Saturday only the Under 13 and 1st XV teams have games.
