CNI Football Champs
Congrats to our 1st XI Footballers, winning back to back CNI Championships.
Over the weekend 17th & 18th April, the 1st XI Football team started the season positively with a CNI Tournament win. Hosted by Lindisfarne College in Hastings this pre-season tournament worked out really well, having a 5 team round robin format where every team played each other once, and the Overall winner is the team with most points. 

The 1st XI won their first 3 games convincingly winning 3 nil over Wanganui Collegiate, 4 nil over Francis Douglas Memorial College and 5 nil over St John’s College - Hastings. However local hosts Lindisfarne College brought a very physical game and disrupted SJC from playing their best football. Lindisfarne spoilt the unbeaten run snatching a 1 nil victory. But in a round robin event Lindisfarne's earlier loss to Francis Douglas meant that SJC won the tournament with a superior goal difference. 

A good start when plenty to work on for the upcoming Waikato Secondary School competition.
