Tamaki Int. - Week Five Mid Week Update

Our Girls Basketball team defended their Eastern Zone Girls title at ASB Stadium Today. They proved strong in pool play going on a run of five consecutive victories against Farm Cove Intermediate 18-7, Ellerslie School 22-4, Howick Intermediate 19-10, Pakuranga Intermediate 20-6 and St Heliers School 22-9. In the semi-finals we came up against the highly rated Remuera Intermediate team. Remuera took control in the first half taking a 18-8 lead. The second half was very tight with not many scoring opportunities and the teams only scoring a basket each! The other semi-final our friends at BBI Intermediate defeated Farm Cove before BBI proved their class in a tight final defeating Remuera 9-5. A worthy win from the deserved Eastern Zone Girls Basketball Champions for 2008. Our Girls gained some fantastic experience prior to the nationals in September, against some top opposition.

Our Girls Open Grade take the field for their final home game of 2008. They are playing in the Barbarians 12 - a side Rugby Semi-Finals against Kedgley Intermediate School. Those of you able to make the game, kick off will be at 11:30am. Tamaki has only once made the finals of this competition (which are at Eden Park) but would be odds on favourites to make it to the last two. Our Boys are also looking to advance to the quarter finals of this competition at 12:30pm. Don't worry if your not in Auckland, or New Zealand for that matter, full highlights will be available online here at tamakitoday!
