Girls win their hockey division

St Paul's first XI Girls' Hockey team secure second Midlands -inter-secondary school division two title.

The girls travelled to Pukekohe on Wednesday 28 August to play Rosehill College in the Midlands inter-secondary school girls division two final. Having drawn 4-4 earlier in the season, the final was always going to be a tough battle. In a game that was evenly matched, with both teams missing scoring opportunities and both teams finding the back of the net once, the full time score was locked at 1-1. However, by full time the momentum of the game had swung towards St Paul’s who finished on attack. A period of 9-aside extra time, saw St Paul’s gain themselves a penalty corner from which they were able to secure the winning golden goal. Well done to the entire team on securing St Paul’s second Midlands inter-secondary school division 2 title.
