Please read below for today's action...

Girls basketball

Today we only had one game against Kaikohe Intermediate, we started off equal as every time they scored we did, but in the second half we came out firing and gained a great lead. Once again our support on the bench was incredible and a special thanks to the girls hockey team and the swimmers for coming to watch! As a team we feel we have achieved our goals for today. Our player of the day was Lynonah.

As a team we are feeling very proud of our efforts and our team goal for tomorrow is to get the rebounds, more passes around the keyhole to open shots.

Boys football

In the morning we had a hard game against Waiheke. We went down 1-0 in the first 7 minutes but we played hard and got it back and scored 2 goals in the first half to give us the lead. We held our lead and hung on until the final whistle.

The man of the match was Theo Friend with some amazing saves to keep us in the game!!!

We went down to mount maunganui beach after the hard game to chill out and played some Beach football and went for a walk.

Next up was our second game against St Joseph's we had to play in the horrific wind. We scored 3 quick goals and extended our lead in the second half to 4-0 (All scored by Cam Paul). The hard working and consistent ben evans got man of the match.

We are all set and ready for more hard games tomorrow.

Girls hockey

Today the Girls hockey team had an unlucky loss against a strong hockey school through out all age groups. We played St Cuthberts, and lost 1-0. Katie got player of the day. They were a really strong team who put us under a lot of pressure, which tested our defence. We didn't have our best game, or mindset, but we are ready to come out strong and aggressive tomorrow.
