On Monday and Tuesday of Week 5, the boys A, B & C football teams and the girls football team participated in the South Island CAIMS tournament at Hagley park.
For the boys, there were a total of 12 teams divided into 2 pools of 6. After group play here is how they had performed.
A Team : P5 W4 D1 L0 - 1st in Pool B

All three teams progressed through to the quarter finals where the A team won 6-0 against Heaton B, the B team won 2-0 against Kirkwood A and the C team lost 4-0 against Chisnallwood A. What a fantastic effort to have all 3 teams in the top 8 with the A and B teams making the semi finals.
In the semi finals the A team lost 2-0 to a good Heaton A side but the B team caused a major upset and won 3-1 on penalties against Chisnallwood A, after the score was tied 0-0 at full time.

In the final the B team played some fantastic football but they ended up losing a tight fought game 1-0 to Heaton A.
