Harare — CHURCHILL gave hosts Lomagundi some rugby lessons when the two schools met in league games over the weekend.
The Harare side won in two categories after dismissing the hosts in the Under-14 and Under-16 matches before drawing in the Under-20s.
Lomagundi got their consolation in the Under-15 where they beat the visitors 31-0.
Churchill Under-14 and 16 coach Victor Pekani commended his charges performances.
In the Under-14 match, Churchill walloped Lomagundi 69-0.
Munashe Kamunda and James Vambe scored three tries apiece to lead the destruction of Lomagundi.
Tinashe Chibondo and Reason Phiri also registered their names on the scoresheet with two tries each while Delroy Mazinyani weighed in with another.
Tapiwa Malenga ensured Lomagundi's destruction when he converted seven tries for Churchill.
The visitors, however, found it tough in the Under-15 encounter as they lost 31-0.
But Takudzwa Maburutse, nicknamed "Fats", and Pedzi Hwata led the massacre of Lomagundi's Under-16 side as Churchill ran riot, winning 50-8.
Hwata, who was in top form, scored three tries, with Denver Chidhindi contributing two.
The two schools could not be separated in the Under-20 match as they drew 23-23 in a closely-fought tie.
In another schools' duel, hosts Watershed beat Eaglesvale 18-12 in a closely fought rugby tie in Marondera at the weekend.
With Eaglesvale coach Cyprian Mandenge away with the senior national rugby team, it was Harare Sports Club's prop Arthur Musikavanhu to call the shots from the touchline.
Takudzwa Mwanza and Takudzwa Bvunzawabaya were among the Eaglesvale scorers but their efforts were not good enough to give their side a win and Watershed walked away with the victory.
In total, Eaglesvale and Watershed played six matches in all the age groups ranging from the Under-14 to first team and the visitors won six of the games.
Musikavanhu said his side is improving with each game they are playing and though they lost to Watershed at the weekend, he believes his side can do better in their next games.
"We had a good level of rugby and our boys played very well although Deroy Musiyarira got a yellow card and that affected the team.
"One of our best players, Tunga Maredza, got injured last week when we played against Churchill but we still managed to win some of the games.
"The quality of schools rugby is constantly getting better as the boys are improving with each outing," said Musikavanhu.
In other games Prince Edward continued with their dominance, emerging as one of the top rugby schools in the nation when they thrashed a hapless Christian Brothers College 50-3 in a one sided game.
While the Prince Edward Tigers where on cloud nine following their victory over CBC, rivals St George's were weeping in the wake of their 30-16 loss at the hands of Esigodini's Falcon College.
