Top four in New Zealand for First XI Boys' Football team

St Paul's Collegiate School —

The First XI Football boys had an excellent week of football, scoring some major wins against Timaru Boys' and Rosmini College. This led the boys to the quarter-finals against Wellington College where they also secured a 4-1 win. 

Unfortunately, a loss in the semi-finals against Tauranga Boys' College snatched their chance at a final spot. The semi-finals against Scots College finished up with a 1-1 draw, leading the game head into a penalty shoot-out and then into sudden death, with Scots taking the sudden death win at 8-7. Congratulations to our boys on an outstanding performance, fourth in the country!
