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