2024 Coromandel Vs Ngatea

We had an awesome day of rugby today, starting with our young teams in the morning. The Year 3 team played against Katikati, and the Year 5 team faced Te Aroha. Both games were fantastic, and the parents and grandparents probably enjoyed them even more than the kids. It was a lot of fun and a great warm-up for our seniors' game.

At 2 PM, Coromandel took on Ngatea in a hard-fought match. The game kicked off with Ngatea moving quickly into Coromandel's 20-meter area and converting a penalty, giving them an early lead of 3-0.

Once play resumed, Coromandel's defense pushed Ngatea out. After a well-placed kick to the corner by Hamish Stewart and a clever line-out trick between Luke McGrath and Haerengarangi Renata, Haerengarangi Renata managed to score a try in the corner, putting Coromandel ahead 5-3.

The Coromandel boys were fired up. After kickoff, they pushed back into Ngatea’s half. Despite losing the ball near Ngatea’s 5-meter line, they turned it around by stealing the line-out ball, and Harry Blyth drove it over for a try, making the score 10-3.

Coromandel continued to dominate, breaking through Ngatea’s defense and earning several penalties. Eventually, Te Kapua McLean scored another try, extending the lead to 15-3.

Ngatea started to push hard after their kickoff, almost scoring a try, but Coromandel's defense held strong. Ngatea missed a penalty goal, and the game turned into a back-and-forth battle. The first half ended with Coromandel leading 15-3.

In the second half, Ngatea broke through Coromandel's defense to score in the corner, closing the gap to 15-8. However, Coromandel responded quickly. Sahn Povey powered through Ngatea's defense to score, and Tukawhena Pere converted, extending the lead to 22-8.

After another strong play, Tukawhena Pere broke through, and Sahn Povey was able to set up Te Kapua McLean for another try. Tukawhena Pere's conversion made it 29-8.

Ngatea fought back, driving down to Coromandel’s 5-meter line and scoring a try, but it wasn't enough. The final score was Coromandel 29, Ngatea 13.

Overall, it was an amazing day of rugby, with both our juniors and seniors putting on a great show. Hats off to everyone involved for making it a memorable day in Coromandel rugby.
