Thet have played two games in the Men's Gold Division winning the first 4-3 and drawing the second 4 - all. Players were entered into the Senior Men's Skills Competition at the end of the first day of play with amazing results.
Kendra Manning, believed to be the first female goalie given permission to play in the Mens division at Narch took out the senior goalie competition with Warwick Kendrick taking second place. Lewis Taiapa entered the player "SNIPER" skills competition and made a huge impression taking first place. He finished 3rd in the speed competition as well.
The video of this event should be posted in a few hours, will add the link once it is posted.
Quote from Daryn.. Narch Blog
The players from New Zealand stole the show, with some unbelievable goals by the shooters and saves by the goalies. It’s their first time to the NARCh FINALS and it took a ton of time fundraising and saving to get here, so it’s great to see them having so much fun. Also should give a shout out to Pat Lee who coached them and really stressed to them how cool NARCh Hockey is and convinced them to put in the effort to make this happen.
Keep up the good work!
