They won their last game on Fri­day against Or­mis­ton Senior Col­lege by shoot out to come sev­enth in the tour­na­ment. It was a great open­ing on Mon­day with a con­vinc­ing 2-1 win against How­ick Col­lege be­fore los­ing a very tight game 3-2 against Cam­bridge High School on Tues­day.

The qual­ity op­po­si­tion kept com­ing and TPHS were un­able to cap­i­talise on their op­por­tu­ni­ties los­ing games on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day against Mount Roskill Gram­mar School and Long Bay Col­lege re­spec­tively.

This brought them through to Fri­day’s play-off.

Net­ball

New World Te Puke High School Net­ball

Win­ter Tour­na­ment up­date — UNISS

It was a good week, with the girls hav­ing some tough games. TPHS Senior A made the top 8 in their grade, some­thing not achieved for a few years.

The TPHS Girls’ were com­mended on their pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and sports­man­ship by the or­gan­is­ers, af­ter a one-point loss in the game that would have seen them pro­moted up a grade. A real credit to the team and coach, Hana Dou­glas.

Thanks to everyone for all the sup­port dur­ing the week and through­out the sea­son.

Rugby

Mitre 10 Te Puke High School Rugby Last week TPHS sent a 1st XV De­vel­op­ment side to the Rugby by the Beach tour­na­ment at Pa¯pa¯moa Col­lege.

TPHS took third place in the tour­na­ment af­ter beat­ing a well drilled Katikati Col­lege side in the third and fourth play­off.

Coach Jax Reuben-Swin­ton was very im­pressed with all the new play­ers to the team who stood up and showed they will be qual­ity 1st XV play­ers, which bodes well for a great 2019 sea­son.

On Wed­nes­day TPHS started strongly with a big win against In­gle­wood High School.

In the af­ter­noon they played a good Katikati Col­lege side and found them­selves 19-0 down at half­time.

They mounted an amaz­ing come­back to draw level at 19-all and go into golden point. Te Puke scored to win the match 24 — 19.

On Thurs­day the lads ground out a good win against hosts Pa­pamoa Col­lege in a very messy game which took them into the semi-fi­nal on Fri­day.

Los­ing out to Tauhara Col­lege in the semi put them into the third/fourth play­off game.

A huge thank you to all the amaz­ing helpers and sup­port­ers and those who con­trib­uted and pro­vided trans­port to and from the venue.

TE Puke High School Girls’ 1st XI foot­ball team won the Trevor Osten Tro­phy.
