Slowik brothers lead the way as Filton win through to semi-finals
SGS Filton College sealed their place in the AASE League semi-finals in style, with a 41-19 destruction of Truro in Cornwall.
Despite going behind early on, the Bristol Rugby apprentices scored seven tries in an exciting and clinical display, with brothers Auguy and Lucas Slowik each crossing twice. There were further scores for Ben Charlton-Hibbert, Monty Reed and Ryan Roach.
Head coach George Tavner hailed the performance of his side and had special praise for his pack.
He said: "The players have worked very hard this season and I am very proud of the way they played today. They have had a tough couple of months, so to put in a performance like this was very pleasing. I thought the forwards were outstanding and gave us the platform to play the high-tempo game we work so hard on. We are all looking forward to the semi-finals."

Filton fell behind in the opening minutes. But Tavner's side responded soon after as Charlton-Hibbert crossed following good work from fly-half Julian Mogg.
The rest of the first-half belonged well and truly to Auguy Slowik. The pacy winger added Filton's second with a stunning individual effort, first stepping outside his opposite man before beating the covering full-back for pace.
Truro responded with a second try to level things up, but Auguy Slowik was on hand again to finish off a fine team move and ensure his side went into the break with a 19-12 lead.
The visitors kicked-on soon after the break and put the game to bed with two more quickfire tries. First, Lucas Slowik powered his way over from close range after neat work from midfield partner Carpenter, before captain Reed did the same minutes later.
The Cornishmen hit back with their third try of the afternoon, but Filton had the final say as Roach and Lucas Slowik rounded off proceedings with the visitors' sixth and seventh scores of the game.
There were standout performances from Ross Tunbridge and Ryan Thompson, but it was Auguy Slowik who stole the show for the visitors.
The win secured Filton an AASE League semi-final spot, but they will have to wait on other results to determine whether it is a home or away tie.
