E Z Boys Softball Tournament

On Tuesday 28 February 2012 Tamaki Intermediate School hosted the Boys Softball Tournament. It was a home game for us. Yr 7 and Yr 8 boys from the schools in our area participated in this tournament.
At 9.00am all the schools arrived here at our beautiful school. We lined up on the netball courts and the first game started at 10.00am. The first school we versed was Bailey Road. We were anxious to play our first game and we managed to beat them by 5 points. Next we played Panmure District. They were good but not good enough for “TAMAKI INTERMEDIATE”. We beat them 7 nil. After that we played Parnelll District and that was a win for us again. All the games were played for twenty minutes.

After Parnelll we challenged Churchill Park but sadly we lost by five points. That was the only school we lost against. Then we got a twenty minutes break before we versed St Heliers and that was a win for us again. The score was an amazing 4 nil.

We played the finals against Churchill Park but unfortunately we lost. Overall we were placed second. This was a great achievement for us because we had improved from last year. We were rewarded with hot chips by Mr Furuvai.
That was the best day for me because I was part of this victory.

Congratulations on your great tournament. It must have felt good! I appreciate having a report to read about this event as I would have loved to have been there.

I really enjoyed reading your report about softball. I used to be a teacher at Tamaki Intermediate, so I used to be the Softball Coach, and it was always a very tough tournament but you and the team can be proud of coming second. I like how you listed all the scores for the games so I could hear about all the wins that you had at the tournament, and to only lose to one team is something that you can be proud of. Like Mrs Burt I wish you luck with your next sport (Soccer it should be).
