Kerikeri U17s claim season's first trophy The first championship of the season has been secured by Kerikeri Foot- ball Club's U17s. The trophy will grace the cabinet at Baysport Waipapa after the team faced the only other club that could catch them on Saturday in a long- awaited clash against Tikipunga U17s. Tikipunga really took it to the young Kerikeri side in the first twenty minutes, but the defence superbly marshalled by Haydn Juriscich and Jack Waller held firm. A break mid-way through the first half saw Daniel Field pounce on the opportunity to give Kerikeri a 1-0 halftime lead. A second goal shortly after halftime knocked the wind out of Tikipun- ga's sails and from then on the Kerikeri team played some superb foot- ball adding a third goal after 20 minutes into the second half. Max Cole- man calmly stepped up to the penalty spot and added a fourth. Tikipunga also had their opportunities but a brilliant save from the Kerikeri keeper, Benji Vokes, deflected a shot at goal. Many of the Kerikeri players make up the bulk of the Kerikeri High School Team, captained by Daniel Field, which has gone through the Secondary Schools Com- petition undefeated this season and will contest the final as Top Qualifiers against Whangarei Boys High School. The first leg of the final will be played in Whangarei on Wednes- day, August 10, and the return leg a week later on August 17 at Kerikeri High School. The boys who make up these two U17 Teams have enjoyed a superb season and thoroughly deserve their success. Confident Kerikeri quietens Kamo Kerikeri could not afford to lose against league leaders Kamo in what could have been a cham- pionship decider in the weekend. Kerikeri put Kamo on the back foot from the first whistle when Mark Coleman and Tomas Trombik flew down the wing, feeding Felix Schumacher to test the Kamo defence. The opposition kept Kerikeri at bay for the first 20 minutes until skipper Keiren Nagel stepped up with a superb run into space, placing a beautiful cross for Mark Coleman to head the ball into the roof of the net. Kerikeri pressed for- ward for a second goal and were awarded a free kick inside the Kamo penalty area. Zdenek Rosa stepped up and rifled in a shot which flew past the Kamo wall and the keeper into the top corner. Kerikeri were up 2-0 at halftime. Kamo then came out fired up for the second half, but the Kerikeri defence of Mark Roberts, Keiren Nagel, Ryan Hoalker and Sam Green kept them at bay with outstanding defence. Kamo had two good chances to bring them- selves back into the game but keeper Chris West made two excellent saves to claim his side another clean sheet and extend the unbeaten run to eight games. Player of the day went to Isaac Laurie Williams. In the next game, Kerikeri will host Tikipunga in the semi- final of the Stafford Choat Cup with a 2pm kick-off at Waipapa. Wet but a good challenge Women champions: Denise Hunt (Wellsford), Jan Manoonpong (Remuera), Rebecca Moselen (Hikurangi) and Robyn Bonnington (Wellsford). A field of 56 women braved the wet con- ditions to play the 59th Elaine Bledisloe Wo- men's 72 Hole Amateur Matchplay Champion- ship at Waitangi Golf Club on July 23 and 24. The rain stayed away long enough to make play challenging and competitive. Jan Manoonpong from the Remuera Golf Club won the Bledisloe Cup from Waitangi's Phoebe Perrin in a 36 hole final. Jan's smooth and con- trolled game was the winner on the day. Rebecca Moselen from Hikurangi won the Wai- tangi Cup, Denise Hunt from Wellsford won the Kerikeri Cup and Robyn Bonnington also from Wellsford won the Kawakawa Cup.
