This tournament was held for the second year over the weekend of the 16th-17th July.
Once again we had two grades, 11th and 13th grade, although we are very keen to have 15th grade next year!!
At the end of pool play the 11th grade had co-leaders Waimak Grey and Ferrymead Bays. A fitting final was played out with the teams tied 1-1 at the end of regular time. A bomb from around halfway from the Waimak team finished up in the goal and Waimak took a 2-1 lead in extra time. They finished off a third goal to end the final 3-1 winners. It was an exciting match running end to end.
In similar style the 13th grade final between Halswell and Nomads finished regular time 1-1 too.
Neither could break the dead lock in extra time and the match had to be decided on penalties.
Credit to both teams for an excellent final, but Halswell managed to slot 4 penalties to 3 to take the Championship title.
