Winter Tournament Results

Well done to our five teams who competed at the Primary Sports Canterbury Winter Tournament today at Hagley Park.

We had some outstanding results and are very thankful to God for fine weather, awesome gifts and talents on display and supportive parents.

Our three Year 7/8 teams all made the finals which is outstanding and would make us the strongest full Primary School in Canterbury at Year 7/8 for Winter Sport. Both the Year 7/8 Rugby and Football teams took 2nd place out of all Canterbury with the Football team losing 3-2 to St. Andrews College and the Rugby team losing 20-10 to Mt Hutt College in the final.

The Year 7/8 Hockey team had an amazing tournament winning all of their nine games and not having a goal scored against them, scoring 43 goals. They beat Mt Pleasant in a very close semi-final before beating St. Joseph’s Papanui 2-0 in the final. They now go to the Aims Games in Tauranga in just over two weeks as the Thursday Weekly Champions and the Canterbury Champions – undefeated in all their games this season.
