It took a 9-8 sudden death penalty shootout to give Watakere City victory over East Coast Bays and progress to the next round of the Nike Cup, in the Northern Football qualification tournament at Fred Taylor Park over the weekend 15 and 16 February. Bays beat Forrest Hill Milford 1-0 and Oratia United 5-1 on Saturday, beat Birkenhead United 3-0 on Sunday before suffering a narrow 1-0 loss to Waitakere City in the final round robin game.

They then met Waitakere again in the final. A very even game, 0-0 at full time,  extra time remained scoreless and it went to penalties. the first attempt from both sides was saved b the respective goalkeepers, it was 4-4 after the regulation five kicks and then sudden death, finally eding 9-8 to Waitakere.  A superb effort from the Under 15 years old and looking back at prevous Nike Cup teams, many of these players will be in the Premiers or Development Team withing the next 3 years.
