Horowhenua College Girls 1st XI Football were lucky enough to be able to attend the NZSS Girls Football Tournament week in Hamilton. This was a fantastic experience for many of the girls who have never been away for a week long sports tournament before. We also had a number of senior student who had been away and were able to lead the younger team members.
We faced a number of teams during the week from much bigger cities and towns such as Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga. The girls faced many challenges and we were happy with our third placing. The team started the week positively with a 1-0 win. This was a very tough game and we were happy to get the win. We then had some great results, winning 2-1 over Otorohanga College, 3-1 win over Matamata College a 1-1 draw with Hamilton Christain College which we won on penalty shoots and a 1-0 lost to Strathallen College Auckalnd.
Throughout the week the girls learnt a number of valuable lessons on and off the field. They had an experience they will remember for a lifetime. We thank One Foundation for their help and support in making this a possibility for these students.
