Central Leader - - SPORT -

The Mt Al­bert Girls Gram­mar foot­ball team have made it six in a row.

The first XI girls have won the Auck­land sec­ondary school com­pe­ti­tion with­out con­ced­ing a goal. Their record makes for im­pres­sive read­ing.

They played 11 matches, won them all, scor­ing 67 goals with the goal­keeper keep­ing a clean sheet in all of them.

Coach Paul Mar­shall be­lieves the fact the girls have been to­gether for three years has helped.

‘‘They are an amaz­ing team, they are more tac­ti­cally as­tute than their op­po­si­tion.’’

Three mem­bers of the team were selected for the New Zealand un­der-17 side that went to Costa Rica last term, and five play­ers are mem­bers of the na­tional un­der-16 team. The team have set their sights on the Knockout Cup com­pe­ti­tion be­fore de­fend­ing their ti­tle at the na­tional cham­pi­onships.
