Ha¯ wera C’s played In­gle­wood in the Nimmo’s Cup fi­nal on Satur­day at Eltham, a neu­tral ground.

The Mark Frost Elec­tri­cal Ha¯wera team capped off their sea­son with a com­mand­ing 6-1 vic­tory over In­gle­wood to add the Nimmo’s Cup knock­out com­pe­ti­tion to the league ti­tle they won two weeks ago.

The con­di­tions weren’t the best with heavy rain and very cold con­di­tions through­out the match. Ha¯ wera started to dom­i­nate ter­ri­tory and pos­ses­sion early on and were re­warded with two early goals in quick suc­ces­sion, both from throw ins to Michael John­son and Klin­ton Hunt.

The last 20 min­utes of the half was very even with both sides shar­ing dom­i­nance but there was no fur­ther scor­ing.

In the sec­ond half Ha¯ wera had a strong wind at their backs and to­tally dom­i­nated the game. For the next 30 min­utes Ha¯wera pep­pered the In­gle­wood goal and scored four more times. Ha¯ wera scored through Ross Hep­burn, 2, Caleb Cook and Matty Kel­brick.

How­ever, In­gle­wood did get a con­so­la­tion goal late in the game.

It was an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance from Ha¯ wera who now hold all three tro­phies up for grabs this sea­son. Players to shine were Ross Hep­burn, Klin­ton Hunt and Michael John­son in mid­field, Caleb Cook in de­fence. Klin­ton Hunt was named player of the day.
