GOLD – UNDER 16 GIRLS


Marist Red vs. North Harbour A


The tension was high in the girls’ final of the Under 16 National Championships. Left-hander Bernadette Doyle was the first and only to score in the opening quarter, as Marist struggled to capitalise on two extra plays.

It was Libby Gault who put Marist on the board, scoring a penalty in the early moments of the first quarter for 1-1. North Harbour accelerated and scored three goals in a minute and a half through Francesca Myers and two from Doyle for 1-4 at halftime.

North Harbour squandered two extra player opportunities, but eventually found their fifth goal from a Bernadette Doyle penalty and with it her fourth goal of the game.

Libby Gault scored her second for Marist in the dying moments of the half for a reachable 2-5 deficit with a quarter to play.

Marist began their comeback early in the quarter, with a goal from Kelsey Snelgar off a 5 on 4 for two goals down and 4:45 left on the clock. Snelgar scored again through the arms of North Harbour’s Lavenia Lovodua, this time from a penalty at 3:29.

Libby Gault was Marist’s hero at 1:32, scoring her third for the 5-5 equaliser from another man-up play.

Just as a penalty shoot-out looked likely, Gabby MacDonald caused a penalty, giving North Harbour a chance at edging ahead with 0:26 seconds left in the final. After nailing her other two penalties, Bernadette Doyle lined up for the shot, but a huge save from Marist goalkeeper Antonia Young denied North Harbour of the victory and kept Marist in the match. The score sat at 5-5 at the end of regular time, and the final headed into penalties.

The packed stand reacted to saves, misses and goals from each side, and eventually cheered on Marist as they claimed top spot in the 2015 Under 16 National Championships, 9-7 over North Harbour.
