Cambridge Blues take out men’s sevens after thriller of a final

posted in: Cambridge Sevens, Events, Men, News

A team of Cambridge-based players took out the 10th annual Cambridge Sevens (men’s) tournament after beating past winners Whakatane Town 2-1 in a thrilling final.

The local side, containing members of Cambridge FC senior teams, turned out as The Blues as 14 teams from Auckland, the Bay of Plenty and Waikato took part in the 7-a-side format of the game in which there are no offsides to encourage attacking football.

The Blues started the day with a 1-1 draw against Te Awamatu B but then progessed from their group stage to reach the final, their sixth game of a hot and sunny day.

Beaten semi-finalists were Somali Stars, from Hamilton, and Ngongotaha.

Thanks to the group of referees who coped with the heat, and to the volunteers who helped make the tournament possible.
