Marist vs Waitakere - Fri 19th Apr
Tonight the Marist Magic welcomed Richard Small, a past Marist player who has been living and playing in Australia for the last couple of years, back into the team. With two of our senior players, Dan Jackson and Jacques Venter, unable to play tonight, it was great to have Richard back in the pool playing with the boys as they came up against the Waitakere Blue Devils. Our boys were fast on attack and strong in defence, remaining in front throughout and making seven field blocks in the course of the game. It was a 20-8 victory for the Marist Magic (4-2; 7-3; 12-5; 20-8) with goal scorers being Eamon (6), Eddie and Fabian (3), Matt and Andy (2), Sefa, Richard, Jeff and Ben (1) Tomorrow is an important game for our boys as they play their final game at home against North Harbour in the last shield match for the season, before they head to Wellington on May 4-5 for finals weekend. GO MARIST MAGIC!!!

06.06.2010. Marist Magic Men take Bronze.
After the disappointment of yesterdays loss in their semi final, the Marist Magic Men bounced back to win the Bronze medal play off, defeating Maranui 11 - 7.
The game was fast and furious with the first quarter ending with Marist ahead 3 - 2 after goals to Ben Pye, Shaun Venter and Paul Swindells.
The second quarter sea sawed to 7 - 5 with goals to Adrew Sieprath, Paul Swindells, Daniel Jackson and ? (sorry someone talked to me) before Marist coach Kurt Goldsworthy was ejected from the bench because it appeared the ref didn't like the way Kurt laughed at him.
Josh Campbell, assistant coach stepped up to demand better from the men and the team responded with another two goal to Daniel Jackson and Paul Swindells while a slight miscalculation in the Marist goal gifted Maranui a goal. Marist lead 9 - 6
Paul Swindells capped off a "Magic" night with 2 more goals in the last quarter, to take his game total to four, to also go with the National League title he wins as coach of the womens team. Maranui added a final goal to leave the final score at 11 - 7 to Marist.
Congratulations to Kurt Goldsworthy, Toby Devine, Phil Howart, Paul Swindells, Leon Savov, Shaun Venter, Richard Small, Josh Campbell, Matt Reid, Andrew Sieprath, Olaf Adam, John Ware, Ben Pye, Daniel Jackson, Mark Collins, Michael Parr, Nick Buist, Aiden Thornhill, Mark Baker and Eddie Thomas.
The club also extends its thanks to all those family, friends and supporters that made the trek out to North Harbour in support of our teams.

The 2009 National League has concluded. The Men where placed fourth. The Women after winning the Minor Premiership lost in a Penalty Shootout (12-11) in the Final after both normal and extra time where tied. It was an extremely exciting game and missed opportunities during both normal and extra time in the front court unfortunately cost the girls. Captain Anna Sieprath top scored with 5 goals in the match.
The Marist Red
mens and Senior Womens sides both won the
Pelorus Trust NZ OpenBoth Marist Red and Blue Senior Mens sides competed in this tournament. The Blue side unfortunately failed to register a win but were competitive in every game. The Red side won the final beating, the NZ Junior Mens side 6-5. The guys came from 0-3 down in the first and really shored up there defence for the remainder of the game. Mark Baker in the goal played his best game for the season and again Olaf Adam and Phil Howat where instrumental in the victory. Olaf Adam was rewarded with his first ever individual award when he won an Outstanding Player Award.
The Men-s side was unlucky Sunday, going down 11-10 in the final quarter to the Hutt Heat - last years silver medalists. Marist led into the final quarter but Hutt scored the last 2 goals to clinch the nail biter.

The Marist Magic had a mixed set of opening games to their 2009 National League season at Sacred Heart yesterday. The Magic Women had a shock loss to League newcomers Waitakere going down 6-5. The Magic women drew within one goal of the Waitakere team in the third quarter after being down 1-5 at one stage, but couldnât find the back if the net to equalise. All credit to the Waitakere women as they played a smart game. The Marist Magic Men had a convincing opening win against the Waitakere Blue Devils winning 20-12 in a high scoring encounter which was played at a frenetic pace. Cameron Lowther scored 9 goals whilst Marist recruit Ben Pye netted 3 in his first appearance.
