Kohekohe came, they saw and they conquered hockey semi
Kohekohe has stormed into the Intercity Hockey Final after a comeback win over Waikato University on Saturday.
They nosed out the Minor Premiers beating the students 3-2 in Hamilton. They now play St Pauls Collegians on local soil in Saturday’s final at Rosa Birch Park, Pukekohe.
Kohekohe took the lead after Chad Whitehead reverse hit a shot in the third quarter. Unfortunately Whitehead picked up a yellow card and may miss the final, but it’s a family business, brother Jesse will be home from Canada where he’s been wood chopping and is likely to suit up for Saturday’s final.
The scoreboard attendant was unemployed in the Te Awamutu versus Pukekohe Indians (PISC) game. It hasn’t been a vintage year for PISC, they finished up sixth.
The Waiau Pa men will have a match on finals day. On Saturday they lost to the Rotorua Aces for the second week running and will next play in the third/fourth playoff game in the plate.
The Waiau Pa Barbarians, the only CMHA club in the Women’s Intercity Competition, finished with a loss to Katikati.
The team is very young and entered the competition at the 12th hour.
Waikato University 2 lost to Kohekohe 3 (Trent Thornton, Warwick Reid, Chad Whitehead).
Kohekohe v Collegians, Rosa Birch Park, Turf One, Saturday at 2pm
