Congratulations to both the Boys and Girls Hockey First XI teams. The girls finished their season on a high, with a 4 – 0 victory against Massey First XI to place them 3rd in the 2nd Division. This is an exceptional achievement given they commenced the season in the 3rd division. Well done to all the girls for their commitment and sportsmanship throughout the season.
On Wednesday evening, the Wentworth Senior Boys XI Team faced Orewa College 2nd XI Team in the finals for first place in Grade 3a. It was a tense and close match against a young and skillful Orewa team but Wentworth had the edge on them by going ahead 2-1. At a crucial stage in the game, the lights went out and it took some time before they came back on and subsequently the momentum of the game changed and Orewa equalised. This resulted in the final going to a penalty shoot out and the Orewa goalie was successful in blocking three of the Wentworth penalties to win the game. The boys should feel proud of how they played on the day despite the challenging circumstances, so well done to them all!
Thank you to all the supportive parents & students who cheered on both teams at every game!
