h Report for 11th Grade Eastern Suburbs Tournament Two East Coast Bays teams went to the 11th Grade 8 a side competition on Sunday. The first team had a sluggish first game which they narrowly won, but got back on track after a "pep talk " from stand in coach Dave Booth to come out first in their pool and go through to the Championship semi finals. The semi final round was against Onehunga which ECB came through safely to win 1 - 0. The final saw the first team up against Fencibles and with ECB on top form they proved too strong for Fencibles winning 3 - 1. The second team struggled in the pool games but managed to go through to the Bowl round where they faced Eastern Suburbs in the Semi"s, after being locked at 1 - 1 after extra time it went into a penalty shootout with ECB coming out on top with some fine goal keeping and penalty shots. The Final against Onehunga resulted in a 0 - 0 score after extra time and once again it was into penalties. The ECB penalty takers were in fine form with the first four finding the back of the net, with some great keeping once again from Glen it was all over with ECB winning the bowl. Overall a good day with all players recieving a medal and of course the Eastern Suburbs 11th Grade Trophy !!
