ST FRANCIS College has asserted its dominance early on in the Dave Sheldrick Shield.
The college took on Yanco Agricultural High School on Wednesday evening in the opening round of the shield, with YAHS looking to replicate their form from last season and go back-to-back.
The league tag competition was the first to take to the field and from the get-go St Francis College once again showed why it is the premier team in the tri-series.
They girls ran in try-after-try, with the YAHS defence unable to offer little in the way of stemming the onslaught.
In the end, St Francis College ran away easy victors, 54-0.
In the boys rugby league, the contest was a tighter affair.
With plenty of bragging rights on the line and competitiveness on show, both sides played with vigor and passion.
However, St Francis College got back to their winning ways as seen in the past shields and came away with a 22-10 victory.
The next match will be on March 27 at No. 1 Oval when Leeton High School face off with Yanco Agricultural High School.
