Braving icy winds and the odd rain shower the East Coast Bays 9th grade first team took to the fields at Mountfort Park, Clendon yesterday determined to make their first tournament of the season count. Under the expert guidance of Joe Bresnahan and Dan Peat the boys came through their pool round unbeaten with no goals conceded. A further victory in the quarters led to a tough semi final against Papakura that came down to a nail biting (for the parents) penalty shoot out - on target shots and Nick Milners outstanding goalkeeping finally guaranteed us a place in the final. A 1-0 win over Birkenhead sealed the championship and ensured we brought plenty of smiles (not to mention medals and a pretty impressive trophy) back across the bridge. Congratulations to Cameron Hey, Trent Baker, Jayden Yiu, Kaden Sutton, Harrison Windelburn, Jacob Scott, Brayden Pikhalof, Nick Milner and Matthew Harland for the fantastic result. Huge thanks and congratulations also to Joe and Dan who not only gave up their Sunday but did so with huge enthusiasm and great results - well done!
