Auckland entered Sunday’s final round in second place, but dropped to fourth following a 2-6 loss to the NZ Development side at William Green Domain. Auckland finished tied on points with Capital, with four wins, a draw and two losses, but dropped out of the play-off spots on inferior goal difference. Having beaten Capital in the round robin, Auckland would have made the finals if they were tied on for and against. Auckland were still in the finals with less than 10 minutes of regulation time to go against NZ Development, but let in goals in the 83rd, 93rd and 95th minutes to be eliminated. The NZ Development team, featuring Saint Kentigern College’s Bella Richards and Jacqui Hand, of Half Moon Bay, will play Capital this Sunday to see who takes on defending champions Mainland Pride in the final. Doubleheader success HOWICK Softball Club’s premier women’s team showed they can win tight matches as well as overpower their opposition in two victories last Saturday. Simply Homes Howick beat Ramblers 3-2 and Melville 11-0 in a doubleheader at Meadowland. “We had some clutch plays and hits, notably by Anita Leeuw, Bree Gibson and Hannah Cook,” says coach Travis Owen. “But as always it’s a team effort and we kept our focus to make it a good day offensively, defensively, and with good pitching from Marissa Berkes. We as a team and coaching staff made some mistakes but overcame them to get the wins.” Meanwhile, the Just Hardwood Floors men’s team remains at the bottom of the table after their 4-8 loss to Otahuhu. SPORTS BITES Outpour of emotion at win CONDOR QUALIFIED: The Howick College under-15 girls’ sevens rugby team, with coach Adelita Sotutu second from left at rear. Photo supplied By Daniel Silverton tHERE were tears of joy when Howick College’s under-15 girls’ sevens rugby team quali- fied for the national secondary school tournament. Howick won theinaugural Upper North Island (UNI) under-15 girls’ title at Waitemata Rugby Club ear- lier this month, which put them into the prestigious Condor Sev- ens competition. Girls’ sevens kicked off at Howick with an open team last year, and expanded to the under-15 level this season. “For all of the under-15 team it is their first year playing rugby,” says coach Adelita Sotutu, a former rugby player and wife of Auckland men’s sevens coach and ex-Blues representative Waisake Sotutu. The team was also trained by former New Zealand Sevens player Rocky Khan. Many of the pupils involved take part in other sports, including net- ball, touch, volleyball and water polo. “They’re a skilful bunch,” says Sotutu. “The tackling was the hardest thing for them to get used to, and the rules around the ruck and maul. But once they’d done it a couple of times they were fine.” The team’s first event was the Auckland under-15s, where they finished runner-up to Tangaroa after going down in the final 7-25. “They were disappointed to come second because only the winning team got to qualify for Condors,” says Sotutu. At the UNI tournament, Howick beat Tai Wananga Ki Ruakura 22-12, Bay of Islands College 32-5, and Otahuhu 27-10. For the second time in as many weeks they met Tangaroa in a final, with Howick prevailing 15-14 in a tight tussle. “Tangaroa were winning 14-10 and we got a try towards the end of the second half,” says Sotutu. “Our defence was a lot better in the UNI than the Auckland tour- nament. We were a lot stronger and worked as a team.” Their joy at winning was multi- plied when the NZ Rugby Union officially informed them they had made the national tournament. “We were in a huddle with our medals and trophy,” says Sotutu. “I was crying and they were screaming. Their goal all along once they knew they could play and were playing well was to get to Condors.” The under-15s’ initial success is breeding further interest in sev- ens at the school, and is expected to boost the college’s girls’ open team, which made the Auckland semi-finals this year after going winless in 2013. “The girls are thoroughly enjoy- ing it. I think we’ll have more par- ticipating next year,” says Sotutu. Howick is grouped with Ham- ilton Girls’ High and Rangitoto College in its pool for the under-15 section at Condors. The tournament is at Kelston Boys’ High this Friday to Sunday, with the junior competition taking place on the first day.
