Old Blue flanker Derek Lipscomb added to the carnage, touching down two tries.

Boston’s only points came on a try five minutes from the final whistle by reserve No. 8 Brian Regal.

 Moeke opened the scoring with a penalty goal in the fourth minute and then extended Old Blue’s lead to 10-0 when he converted a push-over try scored by flanker Lipscomb in the 14th.

Old Blue increased its lead to 17-0 when scrumhalf Jorge Pizzaro touched down at the conclusion of a second-phase movement from 10 yards out and Moeke converted.

While Boston misfired on a makeable penalty attempt in the 30th minute, Old Blue’s Moeke was on target with his second penalty goal in the 36th, 20-0.

With the half’s final seconds ticking away, Moeke came up short on a 50 meter penalty attempt.

Moeke was again off target with a penalty attempt three minutes after the restart, but atoned in the seventh minute when he ran in a try following a Boston infraction 10 meters from its own line. Moeke converted his try (27-0) and then increased Old Blue’s lead to 30-0 when he connected on a 40 meter penalty goal in the 25th minute.

Old Blue’s final points came in the 31st minute when flanker Derek Lipscomb crashed over for a try from 3 yards out, following multiple assaults on Boston’s line. Moeke’s conversion increased Old Blue’s lead to 37-0.

Boston achieved a small measure of redemption in the 35th minute when reserve #8 Brian Regal scored following a scrum five meters from Old Blue’s line.
