Mahurangi wins Matoma Cup

Pixie Jones presents the cup to Mahurangi College netball captain Kate Powell.

The Matoma Cup was won by Mahurangi College after it beat Rodney College in the final match 29-20.

The Otamatea v Mahurangi match resulted in a 33-19 win to Mahurangi, while Otamatea beat Rodney 34-16.

Played since 1998, the Matoma Cup competition was formed when Mahurangi College netball team left the Rodney Centre to play at North Harbour. It is now the only sporting occasion that brings together Rodney College, Mahurangi College and Otamatea College.

The Matoma Cup was donated to the Rodney Netball Centre by Pixie Jones in honour of her late husband Peter Jones.

It is named after the now defunct Matakana Omaha netball club that Jones played for when it was formed in 1970.
