Footy Girls Champions

Congratulations to the Waitākere 1st XI Girls Football Team

Our final game of the season was a very nerve-wracking one for all involved! St Cuthbert's managed to hold us to a 0-0 draw at half-time. Then after a decent pep talk we were rearing to go!  
There were breakthroughs happening on both sides of the pitch! Then in the 35th minute, there was a tussle in the St Cuth's box and the ball ended up in the goal!  An unfortunate own goal from St Cuth's side, but gave our girls the confidence to push through to the end!  
A massive well done to the St Cuth's girls, you've come a long way since our first meeting earlier in the year. And a whole-hearted congrats to the Waitākere 1st XI Girls and their solid shared team effort. Bring on tournament week in!! - Miss Kate Storer

Here's what some of the players had to say about their team;
