The Upper Clutha Yellow Kiwi Sticks team (years 5 and 6) faced Maniototo Thunder in the final. The first half was tight with neither side giving an inch and when Upper Clutha's Mikayla Botting scored the first goal of the game it was matched shortly afterwards by a goal from Maniototo.
The intensity grew during the second half, but Macy Holland for Upper Clutha managed to penetrate Maniototo's defence to score two goals to secure the win 3-1.
The result was well deserved as the team has shown strength throughout the whole season, winning all games but one, which they drew. “A huge thanks to coach Becs Holland for all her hard work with the team; it certainly paid off,” said Grainne Power.
