Year 8 Girls Football

The Year 8 girls football team headed into the competition at Seymour Park on Thursday May 26th with a fierce determination to win.

Their excellent teamwork and use of skills resulted in them winning their first few games and placing first in their pool in the morning.

Later that day, due to a draw with another team, they went into an incredibly tough penalty shootout.

Overall the girls played strategically and with a wonderful attitude, placing 3rd overall! They have made RI extremely proud. 


Year 7 Girls Football

The Year 7 girls football team saw some massive improvements in their skills and confidence throughout the day playing at Seymour Park. They worked wonderfully as a team and had a great time together! It was great to see how they managed themselves throughout a very action packed day. They scored and saved some amazing goals.

Through their hard work and determination they finished first equal in their pool, eventually finishing 4th place in the whole tournament! They should be very proud of their efforts.


Central Zones Boys Football - Year 8

The Year 8 Boys team entered the 2021 Central Zones competition having had a limited build-up.

However they started strong in their pool beating St Peters and Waiheke to start the day.

Unfortunately, the goals slowed down after qualifying for the semifinals, however the boys still finished a very competitive 4th out of 16 schools. 




Central Zones Boys Football - Year 7

With a limited build-up to the 2021 Central Zone tournament, RI was going in with a team stacked with talent who had shown great promise in the game vs the Year 8’s.

Scoring 26 goals in their first three games RI quickly became the tournament favourites and held on to this title all the way through to the final.

An intense final against Pasadena resulted in a nil-all finish which meant they headed to a penalty shoot-out.

The cool head of Ben Perez-Baldoni sealed the deal to make RI Central Zone Champions for 2021!


Central Zones Girls Football

On Thursday 27th May the RI girls football team headed to Seddon Fields, Western Springs to compete in the Central Zones tournament.

They played 5 games in the first round to be selected for the quarter finals against Royal Oak. This ended in a 0-0 draw so a five shot penalty shoot out followed. Neither team scored and then our 7th player to shoot, Siena Baker, scored the winning penalty taking us through to the semi finals.

They won the semi finals against Diocescan and went on to the finals! Unfortunately Waikowhai managed to hold us off with a 2-1 lead.

Year 8 Boys Football 2019

The Year 8 Boys headed to the Central Zones with one goal in mind and that was to win and as we learnt, sport sometimes comes down to one moment.
A brick wall defense, which kept Kaiu very quiet all day, meant we conceded only one goal for the tournament. Unfortunately due to the Central Zone format the one goal we conceded meant we could no longer progress in the tournament and finished 5th out of 16 teams.
Tough day at the office for the boys but still held their heads high and represented the school extremely well.


Year 7 Boys Football 2019

The Year 7 Football team had high hopes for success leading into this tournament, with strength right across the park. Great touch on the ball from the front men, deft ball skills through the middle and a fortress for a defense headed by goalkeeper Sean.
