On Tuesday 28th of July there were a series of finals for Auroa Primary School. Firstly the Girls Y5/6 Netball team competed against Rahotu in the 2016 Crowley Cup Netball Final. Later that afternoon the Y5/6 Rugby Team travelled to Eltham to play in the 2016 Crowley Cup Rugby Final.
The two teams had already played in the round robin competition, with Eltham winning with a try in the final minute. Auroa's epic semi-final win against St Josephs Opunake set up a rematch with Eltham, who were undefeated during the season.
The game was a tense match with a 12-19 half time score to Auroa. In the second half Auroa were able to pull away with a dominate display winning 12-41 making them the 2016 Champions. These highlights were filmed by Astin from Room One. Auroa are in the blue and orange and Eltham in the white and black.
