Teams fin­ish sea­son on high note

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Tawa As­so­ci­a­tion Foot­ball Club’s two 14th grade teams com­pleted suc­cess­ful sea­sons with wins in their fi­nals.

In the cup sec­tion the Ju­nior Premier League side were up against Welling­ton Col­lege.

Up 2-nil af­ter just 15 min­utes, a big win looked pos­si­ble, but their op­po­nents had other ideas.

With min­utes to go un­til full­time, Tawa trailed 4-3, but Bray­don Gi­b­ling spared their blushes by com­plet­ing a hat­trick and send­ing the game into ex­tra time.

Tawa nailed two more goals to win 6-4 and fin­ish their sea­son on a high. They were un­beaten in the JPL with eight wins and a draw, and won ev­ery game in the Su­per 6 com­pe­ti­tion.

In the bowl sec­tion, the Tawa Pro­mo­tional League team played Welling­ton United in the fi­nal, com­ing away 5-2 vic­tors. Get­ting out to a three-goal lead, United got it back to 4-2 later, be­fore Tawa made the game safe.

The promo team can also re­flect on an ex­cel­lent sea­son, play­ing 15, win­ning 11, draw­ing two and los­ing just two.
