Today the 13th of August 2016 we had a game of hockey, our game was being played in Stratford, Taranaki and we were playing off for first and second (The finals) Our team Te kiri were facing St Joseph's Stratford. Our game was at 11:50am. First we got to the turf and we practiced, we done some stretches and some practice hits and we were good to go!!
The whistle blew and we were off, I was playing centre-ford and in the first five minutes we had scored!! An awesome goal from one of my team mates Tom. The rest of the game was tight and we were trying to hold St Josephs off till half-time. The halftime whistle blew and we were off to have a team talk and a drink as we were so thirsty from all our hard work. Score at half-time 1-0 to our team!!
The second half horn bellowed and we were back on! In the second half no goals were scored and it was very close until the full time whistle blew. Officially announced now the winners of the saturday hockey competition Te Kiri, I jumped up for joy and so did the whole team! We done our cheers and shook St Joseph's hands then the final presentation Kobie hey one of my teammates went up and received the trophies. After that we had a team photo and this is how it turned out!!
