Akarana Falcons claim U15s title

By Rahia Timutimu

Both teams started with a rousing haka and were supported by a strong crowd, many who had travelled from a far to be here for the final.

Akarana scored first with a try to No. 11 Isaiah Papalii, and they followed this with a try to Taine Tipene.  Isaiah was back to score his second to take his team out to three unanswered tries.

The Wai-Coa-Bay Colts finally made the board thanks to a try to Dylan Clark, but the home side still lead at half-time 18-6.  Akarana came back firing in the second half, scoring another in the first few minutes.

A perfectly timed kick found the hands of Morgan Harper to score for his Colts side.  However the Falcons were too strong in the end and finished the game 36-10.
