The 1st game was an extremely tight affair in the first half with the scores remaining 0 all at halftime. Defence was the order of the day during the first half with brutal tackles coming from players on both teams. In the second half CAS came out firing and they broke open the GPS defence with a quick succession of 3 tries.
Defence was then the order of the day again for a large part of the rest of the half until and final try was scored by CAS to round out the game. GPS fought back but could not breach the CAS defensive wall and the score finished at 26 to 0 at fulltime.
