Inter-school Soccer Competition

On Wednesday, the Year 7/8 soccer team represented Ruapotaka in the inter-school soccer tournament held at Point England Reserve.
Me, Mika, Timote, Lupe, Katrina, Meana, Isabell, Izabella, Dakbai, Solomone and Min Zin were ready for anything.
The first school we played against was Glen Taylor. It was a difficult match and the year 7&8's fought hard just to get that one goal.
After that game, we did some changes. Dakbai went into the game to replace Min Zin as attacker and in the last three minutes we finally scored a goal. We all celebrated and high-fived each other.

The other schools were Tamaki Primary which we lost 1-0. Mr Reid was disappointed in us, so we sat there and made a game plan. The next match was with Sylvia Park and our game plan worked. Mr Reid was happy that we changed how we played and that we won the game. The next school to face us was St Patrick's. We worked together and we won 7-0.

In the semi-finals, Ruapotaka was up against Panmure Bride and we won 4-0. So that meant Ruapotaka  moved on to the finals against Stonefields. This was going to be hard. We played hard until time was up. We drew 0-0. It was the first time that Ruapotaka school had come first. This years soccer was awesome. Mr Reid was still fizzing from the win!
