OBHS edge SBHS in thriller

Otago Boys' first five Finn Hurley kicked a last-minute dropped goal to seal a 26-24 win against Southland Boys' in the Otago Premier Schools final at Forsyth Barr Stadium this afternoon.

It was his second dropped goal of the match and it wobbled its way over from more than 40m out.

Otago Boys' led 17-7 at the break but Southand Boys' rallied through two second-half tries.
