Waihi School Year 7/8 Winter Exchange

Monday 12th July 2021

We welcomed our visitors and hosted them overnight. The first game was Hockey and we were right in the game at halftime down only 0-1. The second half was again close until Waihi pulled away in the last 10 minutes to win 5 -0.

Back at school our football team had a great game and 2 goals from Nick Bolton, plus one from Max Nation had us secure a deserved 3-0 victory.

Across on the rugby field, Waihi started well and were up 21 – 0 very early. Our boys finally got into their rhythm and played some great rugby for a team playing their first game together. Waihi eventually wore us down but our boys can be very proud of their performance against a team who plays together. The final score was 54 -19 to our visitors.

Thank you to all the families who hosted our guests. Troy Jennings
