Waihi Leader - - News - By RUDY SAS

Waihi Col­lege Foot­ball at­tended the an­nual One Agency five-aside tour­na­ment on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15 in Hamil­ton.

Three lo­cal teams en­tered the tour­na­ment — 1st X1 boys, 1st X1 girls and the Year 9/10 Colts.

Hamil­ton put on a fine day once fog lifted and the foot­ball matched the stun­ning day.

The 1st X1 Boys came away with a win in the premier di­vi­sion af­ter a strong win over the top Hamil­ton Boys High

School team that came out a lit­tle over con­fi­dent, per­haps think­ing Waihi was go­ing to be easy pick­ings.

A very im­pres­sive fi­nal score

6-1 to Waihi with Kee­gan Ham­mer­ton hav­ing an amaz­ing day in goal.

The 1st X1 girls fin­ished in the top four of their di­vi­sion af­ter some de­cent bat­tles.

The year 9/10 Colt boys were still on a high af­ter win­ning the league the week­end be­fore at home over Te Awa­mutu, and went on to take out their di­vi­sion as over­all win­ners and com­plet­ing the dou­ble for the year af­ter win­ning five of their six games over all, in­clud­ing a win over the team that was their only loss in the group stages.

They went on to beat them in the semi fi­nal in a penalty shoot out in which Goal Keeper Joseph Bur­rell saved the fi­nal penalty which sent them through to the fi­nal af­ter fac­ing the op­po­si­tion goal­keeper. The fi­nal was to be played against Te Awa­mutu, the same team they played at home to se­cure the league which again proved to be just as tough as in the league as they had a score to set­tle. They were very com­pet­i­tive how­ever Waihi came away with the vic­tory 2-1.

A suc­cess­ful day out show­ing again that foot­ball in Waihi is per­form­ing well.
