Melville Intermediate - Waikato Inter Girls Rugby 2012

Today in Cambridge at Memorial Park Cambridge Middle School hosted the 2012 Girls Waikato Inter Intermediate Competition.  Melville Intermediate had an Open Grade (over 50kg) team.   They played exceptionally well on the day, and we looking to make the finals for the very first time.

The day started with an impressive 29-0 win against Morrinsville Intermediate.   Fairfield were then defeated 15-5, before Melville defeated last years champions, Tokoroa Intermediate 10-5.  Maeroa Intermediate were then beaten 15-7 before Melville suffered their first loss, against Peachgrove Intermediate 5-27.   Looking to make a statement before the semi-finals Melville then played against Te Awamutu Intermediate, defeating them 10-0.  This led to the Semi-Finals where Melville, who had qualified second, played third qualifiers Maeroa Intermediate.  The game was close at half time, 5-0 to Melville but a strong second half saw Melville victorious 25-0.  That meant Melville had made the final as hoped and took on Peachgrove Intermediate School, the only team to defeat us on the day.  The final was close but a 0-15 score line saw Peachgrove claiming the 2012 Championship leaving Melville to finish second, our best result ever.  Well done to Maia, Praise the entire team who represented the school in a very positive way and had a great day.
