There were no surprises in the Avarua boys game as they showed their skill and field work to out-gun the Titikaveka-Papaaroa boys team.

In other games, Nikao girls proved to be a challenge for Arorangi with the latter attacking but unable to put the ball at the back of the net, the game ending in a 2-all draw.
