20:31, Sep 06 2012

Roncalli College finished fourth in the Gary Sowden Football Tournament at Sir Basil Arthur Park.

It was, however, an improvement of one place on last year for Roncalli.

They faced a slick Middleton Grange outfit and they proved too strong, winning 3-0.

For Roncalli, keeper Morgan Stevenson had a great tournament, including several excellent saves against Middleton, while centre midfielder Sarah Mathewson also had a good week.

The final went the way of unbeaten Cashmere High School, overcoming Marlborough Girls' College 2-1 after being down 1-0 at halftime.

The second half was all Cashmere High, and they deserved the victory after good set plays and being more constructive on the ball.
