Girl's Lacrosse - Back to back winners

What a way to end a season! St Paul's Girls' Lacrosse team win gold for the second consecutive year.

The girls' in the St Paul’s Collegiate Lacrosse team knew playing for first place was going to be tough, seeming that that they had played Cambridge High School (CHS) before and lost by a large margin. Cambridge had been unbeaten all season and were strong favourites going into the final. The St Paul's girls started well, scoring their first goal within the first 30 seconds of the game, but CHS were not slow to respond and scored to match our goal pretty quickly. That set the tone for the entire game - St Paul's would score one and Cambridge High would respond. 

The game came down to the last 30 seconds of play and Amelia Hunt scored which gave St Paul's the winning goal - fulltime score 10-9 to St Paul's and first place in the A Division of the Waikato Girls Secondary Schools Lacrosse League goes to St Paul's for the second consecutive year. Molly Clements was player of the day for her leadership as captain. It has been a fantastic season, the St Paul's Girls' Lacrosse team have worked their socks off! They are very deserving of their gold medal win! 

Our thanks to Samantha Quintal, coach and Mrs Angela Bromwich, manager who has stood by the girls throughout a long and demanding season, that has seen the girls taught a great lesson in how to keep calm under pressure.
