Congratulations to Waterside Karori, winners of the inaugural Women’s U20 Club Championship. Unbeaten through the weekend, Karori took out a tight final over Stop Out by the one goal. Stop Out upset Papatoetoe earlier in the morning to make the final, a cracking game of football ended 1-1 before the local girls held their nerve in a penalty shoot out.
