Students Stepping Up:
Football Cup 2018
We are extremely proud of our students Archie Docherty, Cam Landstra and Michael Cope who represented Parklands United football team in the Christchurch International Football Cup over 13-15 July.
Parklands coach Darren Clements has reported that Archie, Cam and Michael were integral members of the Parkland Huskies who finished as Christchurch International Cup CHAMPIONS. Along their journey in the Tournament the Parklands Huskies were able to overcome the three tournament favourites in some thrilling games.
Darren has advised the team has been building towards this tournament from last year and the Huskies have remained undefeated in the local A band competition throughout the year.
In the first 2 days after 3 games the Huskies were top of the group and still without a loss. They had a very tough game in the quarter finals beating Cashmere Technical 4-3 to move to the semi-finals the following day.
Finals day the Huskies overcame the tournament favourites Maori Hill 4-1 in the Semi-final and moved into the finals later in the day. The final was a great game and the Huskies really hit their straps white washing Aoraki 6-0.
