@Auckland Grammar, Turf 1, 25th May
vs Auckland Grammar
After placing 2nd in our grading pool, we faced Auckland Grammar last night in the Quarter Final playoff.
facing a very strong, 1 seed in Auckland Grammar, the boys played hard and started with a 1-0 lead.
Despite many favouring the Grammar side, our boys defended strongly and created good opportunities in front of goal.
At the end of the fixture, Grammar did just enough to win the game in the last few minutes, defeating our side 2-1.
Well done to the squad for putting up an awesome fight!

Compteieiton: A Grade Grading
@Mt. Roskill Grammar, Turf 1, 24th May

The 1st XI Girls fought hard last week, unfortunately going down 201 vs St. Kentigern.
They will look to improve from their efforts in this week’s game vs Mt. Albert Grammar who come off a strong win vs Botany in the last round.

Auckland Netball Center, Court A, 26th May
vs One Tree Hill 2
Our girls went down to a strong Sancta Maria side in the weekend.
Lucy Poole defended well and worked hard throughout, and Kasia Kirstein provided a solid effort off the bench for our premier team.
The girls face a very formidable One Tree Hill side on Saturday.
1st XV Boys
Home Game, Field 1
12:00pm kick off
The team played solid football and defended bravely vs a much bigger Tamaki side last weekend.
Leading 10-5 at half time, a lack of possession in the 2nd stanza made it hard to build on the lead. Tamaki eventually running away with the result 20-10.
They look to bounce back vs Onehunga, another school with rich rugby history.
Competition: Premier A
@Auckland Table Tennis Stadium, Gillies Ave, 25th May
vs Macleans 1
Shorthanded last week, the team look to bounce back from a tough loss vs Papatoetoe.
They face rivals and competition favourites, Macleans, on Friday. Improving every week, the premier team will try and cause an upset at Gillies Avenue.
Good luck to everyone competing this week.
