FARRER Memorial Agricultural High School have pulled off a miraculous come-from-behind victory over Hills Sports High in their NRL Schoolboy Cup quarter-final on Thursday.
Playing at Campbelltown Stadium, Farrer trailed 16-0 early in the second half, before some Trent Taylor magic helped the side wrestle back control and book their place in the final eight.
Ball-handling errors saw Hills skip out to an early lead and despite several promising efforts, Farrer was unable to make an impact on the scoreboard in the first half.
All seemed lost for Farrer when Hills scored the first try of the second half making the margin 16-0.
However, a great run from Kyle Johnson, which resulted in a try, helped spark Farrer back to life.
From there Taylor came into his own, scoring a gutsy try after a great run.
Taylor then followed up less than three minutes making a great run before being tackled into the goal post, but later still manged to get the ball down and level the score.
To give his side the lead, Taylor chipped through the conversion and handed Farrer a stirring 18-16 victory.
The win capped off a memorable week for Taylor as he was also selected in the 133-strong First Nations rugby sevens squad for a national talent camp later this month.
Thursday's win avenged Farrer's last loss to Hills in June, which eliminated Farrer from the University Shield tournament.
Farrer will now look ahead to a final eight clash with either Patrician Brothers' College Blacktown or Holy Cross College.
