Today Tamaki Intermediate participated in the 2008 Eastern/Central League Tag Finals. Our Boys team managed a win against Kowhai Intermediate. They unfortunately found the going a little difficult from there on, and remained win less for the remainder of the competition. The Girls team started off by defeated Waiheke Island 5-0 and then defeated Farm Cove Intermediate 4-3 in a very close game. Our next pool game saw us taking on the form Girls School of 2008 Bucklands Beach Intermeidate (the defending 2007 Champions) who have dominated most competitions this year. The Girls were very nervous before this game, however Tamaki Intermeidate were able to score a considerable upset winning 4-0. Our last pool game was against Wesley Intermediate and a tense game ended in a 3-3 draw. There was a three way tie on points to determine the semi-finals ceedings and Tamaki Intermediate took top spot on goal difference. That put us in the Semi-Finals against Kowhai Intermediate. It was a game of two halves as in the first Cecelia (Tamaki's Captain and former Tamakitoday Basketball Correspondent) managed a hat trick of two point tries, Kowhai did score three times in the second half but all three tries were only single point efforts meaning Tamaki won 6-3. That put the Girls into the final where they took on the undefeated Royal Oak Intermediate. Royal Oak were able to claim a 4-0 win but Tamaki managed to qualify for the Interzone League Finals due to them claiming the runners up spot!
