While 13 students attended the Zone Day, only 11 boys took the field at Auckland Champs as injuries continued to wreak havoc. Unperturbed, the boys just carried on! After a slow start the lads really warmed into their game. Winning every pool game, meant a semifinal against a sharp looking Rangeview team. The cracking game saw NX’s defence frustrate a fast opposition and then score on the final hooter to win 2-1 and advance to the final against Sacred Heart. If the semi was a cracker then the final was next level! Again, the NX defence proved difficult to penetrate and eventually the boys won 4-3 in a high quality game of touch. A massive thank you to Mike Lindsay, who has attained official “legend’ status here at Northcross for his contribution and development of our Touch programme. Well done lads.
