Melville Intermediate - Inter Intermediate Touch 2012

Today Melville Intermediate competed in their second major Waikato Competition for 2012, the Inter Intermediate Touch Tournament held at Swarbrick Park in Frankton.  It was a huge day of competition with the Melville Intermediate teams against those from the entire region.

The Boys started off with a draw against Maeroa Intermediate School 2-2.  They then played Matamata Intermediate winning 3-2.   Up next they took on Berkley Intermediate, losing one nil, before finishing off with another win this time against Fairfield Intermediate 2-1.   Unfortunatly other results had gone against them, and they placed third in their pool.  Our warmest congratulations go to Peachgrove Intermediate and Te Awamutu Intermediate who again contested the final, with Peachgrove winning 2-1.

The Girls started a little slowly being defeated by Maeroa Intermediate 0-2 in game one, before drawing the second with Berkley Intermediate 0-0.  Melville then managed to convincingly defeat Cambridge Middle School 4-2, leaving the final game against Matamata Intermediate with a win required to put Melville into the semi-final.  Matamata scored on the stroke of half time, Melville scored within two minutes of the start of the second half, however despite numerous chances the winning try just wouldn't come, leaving the Girls missing out on the semi-finals on points difference (of one) to Berkley.  Again our warmest congratulations to Peachgrove and Maeroa who played in the final and especially to Maeroa who won 4-1.
