Our First XI boys football team beat Rangitoto College 2-1 in a top of the table clash at the weekend.

Quinn Grainger (Year 12, Parnell) scored King’s first goal in the 20th minute.  Rangitoto College replied 3 minutes later.  The score remained 1-1 until half time.

Just after the recommencement of the second half, Wilson Souphanthavong (Year 12, Marsden) was fouled just inside the Rangitoto penalty box and he confidently converted the penalty kick for King’s to lead 2-1.

Both teams had goal scoring attempts thwarted by good goalkeeping, with Patrick Maher (Year 12, School) having a strong performance in the King’s goal.

Thank you to all those staff and our Headmaster, plus a few former 1st XI Football players, for coming along and providing that much-needed sideline support.

Rowan Adams, Head of Football
