Gimmies shock Boishaai

Paarl Gym picked up a surprise 22-19 win over rivals Paarl Boys’ in the major schoolboy derby on Saturday.

Boishaai were touted favourites heading into the class as the in-form Western Cape school this year. Gimmies’ inconsistency this season also counted against them. But the latter surprised with a late three-pointer to secure the win as the sides were deadlocked at 19-19 in the second half at Faure Street. This is Paarl Boys’ second defeat of the year while it’s Paarl Gym’s 15th win from 22 games.

In other results, Grey Bloem picked up two easy wins over Free State neighbours Sentraal (50-10) and Jim Fouche (49-21) this week. Affies eased past Pretoria Boys’ for a 44-0 win in the Pretoria derby while Dale were sunk 31-19 by Selborne. Grey PE were given an upset 23-3 home defeat by Framesby.
