Ko­hekohe came, they saw and they con­quered hockey semi

Franklin County News - - SPORT -

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
