Central Zones Girls Touch Rugby
2019 was probably our most successful year at the Central Zone Touch competition. The girls suffered an early defeat to Wesley Intermediate, but picked themselves straight back up to defeat Mt Roskill 6-1.
They followed this up with another 3 victories (including a last minute thriller against St Cuthberts). As a result of their success they progressed through to the semi-finals where they were narrowly edged out by Royal Oak 3-2.
In the third place playoff they again faced Wesley. The game see-sawed back and forth but Wesley managed to edge ahead at the end, leaving us in a very creditable 4th place. The girls deserve a lot of credit not only for the skill they displayed, but the team spirit they showed throughout the day.
Team List: Zahra Al-Ethary, Leela Baker, Sammie Barclay, Kayo Findsen, Natalie Folomu, Kimora Iakopo, Anita Iese, Mia Johnson, Coco Lorenzon, Miko Maejima-Ngamoki, Mischa Romans, Anika Todd.
