SX10 overturned a 14-0 deficit to beat Ohio Aviators in the final of the WTS Cup at the National Sports Complex in Hamilton, Bermuda.
A brace of tries from the Cup’s top points scorer Collins Injera and the winning try from South African, Craig Hunt, was enough to ensure the win for Frankie Horne’s side.
The Aviators sprung into an early lead thanks to scores from Riekert Hattingh and Brad Tucker to put themselves in the ascendancy, but the never say die attitude of the SX10 squad, a team that spent the opening round of the World Tens series League in self isolation following a positive COVID-19 result, was enough to get them over the line and see them lift the WTS Cup.
WTS Cup MVP: Kyle Baillie
Top Points scorer: Collins Injera
The Aviators started the WTS Cup final in the same fashion as they had played all day. Their brute strength again coming to the fore. Riekert Hattingh went over for the first try off a brilliant set piece move, before Brad Tucker extended that lead. Two Ben Cima two-point conversions saw the Aviators 14 points ahead.
From then on, it was all about SX10. Collins Injera, the top points scorer for the WTS Cup, pulled a try back before half time and a JT Jackson two-point conversion reduced the arrears to seven points at the break.
The Kenyan flier had his second score on the 15-minute mark and then a brilliant break from Willy Ambaka gave the Cape Town based franchise great field position. From the resulting phase of play Graig Hunt broke the line for what was to be the winning score. JT Jackson had an unblemished record off the tee to make the final score 21-14 to SX10.
