After finishing runners-up to Waikato rivals Cambridge High School in each of the past two years, the Epsom Girls’ Grammar team were celebrating their maiden NZSS Girls Lacrosse title at Whangaparoa over this past weekend.
Year 13 player and attacker Nikki Fordyce spoke about the team’s weekend. “After our previous second placed finishes, our goal was to win and it was awesome for us to take it out the first time,” said Nikki who was also the MVP in the final.
The final against Cambridge HS was tense and tight. “We won 9-8 so it was a close result. We were winning by 9-3 at one stage, before they came back after halftime and ended up coming back but we still held on for the win.”
In the semi-final they beat their close Auckland rivals Mount Roskill Grammar School, after winning all three pool games on day one. In fact EGGS were unbeaten all year.
