Arorangi almost caused Upset

Arorangi scored within ten minutes through current football scholarship at Mount Albert Grammar Temana Pennycook. Temana latched onto a diagonal through ball from danger man Tuka Tisam and planted the ball straight pass Tupapa’s goal keeper.
Although Tupapa Maraerenga dominated ball possession they found it difficult to convert this into goals. It wasn’t until the twenty eighth minute when attacking mid fielder Grover Harmon drilled the ball low pass the brave Arorangi goal keeper John Vano. Half time score for this match was locked at one all.
During the second half Tupapa again dominated ball possession but was clumsy when it came to their finishing. Arorangi had the odd opportunity of winning the match and causing another major upset especially in the last minute of play when Tuka Tisam failed to put the ball pass the young Tupapa goal keeper inside the eighteen yard box.
When the final whistle was blown the Arorangi players celebrated as if they won the FIFA world cup but that is not till 2014 in Brasil.
In the other Premier match games played on Friday Matavera caused another upset by defeating Nikao Sokattak by two goals to nil on their home turf. The goals were scored by Andreas Pareanga and young Ina Tararo and import from the island of Mauke. In the other Premier match on Saturday at the CIFA complex Takuvaine drew one all against Avatiu.
In the main CIPS Image & Copy Centre women’s championship, it was an exciting match out at the Raemaru Park with both teams Arorangi and Tupapa trying every trick in the book to defeat their opponents. This match also resulted in a one all draw.
