The club won all three boys grand finals and the B Division girls with Kiwis White getting over Kiwis Black 3-2 on the back of a double to Georgia Briggs. 

The only one they missed out on was the A Division girls where South White defeated Kiwis 1-nil courtesy of a Chloe Nicholson goal.

It was a game that could have gone either way, Souths coach Mark Rodda said, with Kiwis a bit unlucky not to score.

They probably had more penalty corners, he said.

“My girls just kept going.They played for the whole 50 minutes and they made a conscious effort to be first to the ball and I think they might have made the difference,” Rodda said.

Four was meanwhile the magic number for the Kiwis boys sides with all four winning sides scoring four goals.

In the U11s a double to Jack Marshall helped Kiwis to a 4-2 win over Souths. 

It was a similar story in the U15s, with Ryan Taggart slotting a double to help Kiwis defeat Services Workies 4-2.

The 13s saw Kiwis 4-nil winners over Souths.
