Two west Auckland high schools were in competition at the 2010 secondary schools touch champion- ship in Palmerston North last weekend. Kelston Boys High School was aiming for championship glory in the boy's grade while Massey High School was competing in the mixed grade. Kelston went undefeated in their pool play against Tauranga Boys High School, Kings High and Manurewa High but were beaten on the second day by eventual finalists Ham- ilton Boys High School and Saint Kentigern College. The west Auckland school finished fifth overall after beating Papanui High 7-5. Massey High's mixed team finished pool play with one draw and one loss. They finished sixth over- all after going down to Northcote College 5-3. Youth side down to the final Teamwork, above: Waitakere United's youth side will face Canterbury United in the Youth League final. Mr fix it, right: Waitakere United youth coach Malcolm McPherson has led his team into the final despite missing key players. Photos: SHANE WENZLICK By TUREI MACKEY Most coaches have their final team lineup decided at the beginning of the week. But Waitakere United's youth coach Malcolm McPherson only knows his squad the night before match day. He will now be coaching Waitakere in the youth league final against Canter- bury United. Waitakere are in top form going into the big game after the west Auckland club crushed Team Wellington 8-1 last weekend. The club has developed some promising talent in players like Tim Payne, Ethan Galbraith and Liam Cain. McPherson says the team has depth. Several players were out with injury in the regular season and five have been with the senior team. One of the major factors for us is our mental strength,'' he says. In the group we have a real level of professionalism and there is good quality players and strong characters in the team.'' All season McPherson has had to wait until senior coach Neil Emblen and assistant Darren Bazeley have settled on their starting team for premiership and O-League games. These calls have usually resulted in young players like Dakota Lucas and Ashton Pett being unavailable but McPherson is fine with that. It is not that bad since some of the guys are involved in the first team squad,'' he says. Ideally you would want all the players but from my point of view it is a positive thing.''
