The Powerex tournament for the Hilton Petone Cup will start on the weekend of 12/13 February depending upon the number of entries with the Finals on the weekend of 19/20 March (earlier start due to CL, CP and Cap 1 all starting 26 March)
Most games will be played on Sundays but we will again be playing some Saturday games as this suits some clubs better.
Producing a spectacular moment to win a championship with the last play of the game is everyone’s dream in sport.
Last week at the National Under 19 Club Football championships in Napier that desire became a reality for Petone’s Olivia Gibbs.
With her side tied 0-0 against Nelson, Gibbs was fouled 30 yards out from goal. What followed was a spectacular right to left strike that flew beyond the wall, past the keeper, and into the roof of the net.
