The Mahurangi College Boy’s First XI hockey team sealed their ninth consecutive win of the Robyn Bruce Memorial Trophy at the Warkworth Showgrounds hockey turf on August 3.
The side dominated Rodney College, Otamatea High School and Bream Bay College to defend the title.
Coach Wayne Frost says the team played well to secure what were comfortable wins in the end, but still important.
“The students enjoy playing a different opposition and winning this trophy is one of their targets for the year,” Wayne says.
His side beat Otamatea in round one 6-1 before demolishing Rodney 6-0 and also holding Bream Bay scoreless with a 3-0 victory.
He says the team’s passing was a strong point, but was made easier with opposition giving them more time on the ball than what they are used to.
“Playing against teams that aren’t as strong as our usual opponents meant we could field three second XI players and give them some experience, which was good.”
Wayne says the experience also gives the players valuable competition game time heading into tournament week and the remainder of their league season.
Mahurangi is currently in the lower half of the Auckland Inter City competition.
“We have lost a number of games by just one goal and I think it will come back to bite us.”
