WPSS U13 win Christchurch International Cup


The WPSS U13 group has won the Christchurch International Cup and registered a perfect record in doing so this week.

3 wins from 3 to top pool D earned a play off spot and a quarter final clash with Island Bay of Wellington.

The WPSS boys got the job done scoring 4 unanswered goals to set up the mouth watering prospect of a semi final show down with the champion club of the A League, Sydney FC.


Sydney had made light work of the tournament leading up to the semi final, boasting a + 29 goal difference after group play before winning their quarter final 14 nil.

A huge test for the players and one that they rose to in impressive fashion. In a tight and tense game that saw both sides throw everything at each other, it was the WPSS boys that got the job done. Scoring the only goal of the game in the second half to secure their place in the grand final with a 1 nil win.

The host team Christchurch United were the opponents in the grand final and it didn't take long for the WPSS U13 to get in the groove. Opening the scoring after 40 seconds calmed the nerves and paved the way for a 4 nil triumph to claim the trophy.

Well done to all involved for what was a successful tour both on and off the pitch.
