Cashmere Tech win

under-19 tournament

• By Jacob Page

THE CASHMERE Technical

women’s team won the Coastal

Spirit under-19 tournament at

Cuthberts Green last week.

They beat Wellington United in

the decider 4-1 on penalties.

The annual men’s and women’s

Labour weekend tournament

attracted teams from around

Canterbury and as far afield as

Wellington and Dunedin.

However, it was Halswell

United White which prevailed in

the boys final with a 3-0 win over

Coastal Spirit.

Event co-ordinator and Coastal

Spirit co-coach Gary Bennett

said the 14 teams that took part

all enjoyed the opportunity for

some spring football.

final.

“We had players who were

after different things from the

tournament,” he said.

“We had players who were

going to carry on and play games

for the (Canterbury) Junior

Dragons, while others were

having their last kick around

for the season and moving on to

summer sports,” he said.

“It was great to have some

teams from outside the region

being part of the event and for

(Coastal Spirit) to make the boys

final was something that was

really pleasing.”

Bennett said the coaches also

found the tournament valuable

as they look to build squad depth

for the future across both men’s

and women’s teams within their

respective clubs.

DETERMINED: Masa Matsunami (left), Tania Butterfield and Kai Edwards all received medals at

the South Island Kendo Championships at Papanui High School.

Edwards wins kendo champs

CASHMERE HIGH School

student Kai Edwards upset

Masa Matsunami at the South

Island Kendo Championships at

Papanui High School.

Edwards won the men’s dan

competition over his good friend

Matsunami in spite of having less

experience.

The event also marked the 30th

anniversary of the Canterbury

club.

Edwards, who was an

apprentice with the New Zealand

team at the world championships

last month in South Korea, was

able to defeat the more

experienced Matsunami, who

competed for New Zealand at the

global event.

It was one of a number of

successes for the Canterbury

club with Matsunami and

Chris McGill combining to win

the kata event together.

Parklands’ Tania Butterfield

finished fourth in the open

women’s competition, while

Cantabrians filled the podium

in the open kyu event with Ryan

Hamilton first, Eric George

second and Martin Jiruska

third.

The Canterbury A team

of Jiruska, Edwards and

Matsunami were the victorious

team. The Canterbury B team of

George, Butterfield and Yuma

Tamaki finished third.
