Front row: Pei Morunga, Elle Hacker, Nada Walker, Jordan Kenney, Breeze Durham, Annie Howie. Inset: Shona Petropoulos and Betty Epiha. Six Kerikeri players were part of the Northforce team that won this year's Auckland Football Feder- ation/Northern Football Federation combined under-13 division one metro league soccer championship. Natalie Pickery, Nada Walker, Breeze Durham, Annie Howie, Shona Petropoulos and Betty Epiha and eight Whangarei players played alternate weekends in Whangarei and Auckland to be part of what is considered the toughest age-group league in the country. Training was held in Kerikeri, Kawakawa and Whangarei throughout the year and two of the players travelled more than 12,000km to their training and games. In the champ round the North- force team was unbeaten with eight wins and two draws, scoring 27 goals while conceding only four. From my point of view, this is a great achievement for Northland girls football, especially considering the obstacles that have been over- come,'' NFF football development officer Dave Alabaster says. The girls have shown a high degree of commitment and dedi- cation, particularly considering the amount of travel they have undertaken for training and games, and have conducted themselves well at all times. I would also like to make special mention of Nikki Couling. As a first-time coach at this level, she has done exceptionally well. Her energy, enthusiasm and willingness to learn went a long way to making the team such a success. Also a special mention to Simon Wilkin- son as Nikki's mentor.'' Basketballers building up for Suns Super Six The Kaikohe men's basketball team com- peted in the Northern Region Basketball Championships where they played teams from the much larger basketball associa- tions of Auckland, North Harbour, west Auckland and Whan- garei. The Kaikohe team played six games over three days, losing all their matches. There were however many positives to come out of the tournament. Last year we couldn't even field a team on the last day due to fatigue and injury. This year we had only eight players and lasted the entire tournament, which is testament to the boys' commitment, determi- nation and enthusi- asm,'' captain Taal Smith says. A number of players pulled out at the last minute, including a key player. This could have been the difference in two close games against Auckland and Whangarei,'' Smith says. Our goal was to win one game and we couldn't quite pull it off.'' However, the main focus of the tourna- ment was to develop the team for the Northland Suns Super Six competition which starts in November. This was achieved with all the players including youngsters Izayah Rameka, Hau- paoro Cassidy and Johnno Taylor taking full advantage of the opportunity to play against more experi- enced competition. The team would like to thank their whanau and friends for travel- ling to Whangarei and supporting the side. Anyone interested in trying out for a spot on the Kaikohe men's team for the North- land Suns Super Six competition can con- tact Taal Smith on 021-070-1222.
