9th grade Awakeri Titans went down to Opotiki Magpies 6 - 0. It was an excellent game to watch and all the players gave their all and came off with smiles on their faces. Unfortunately the ball wouldn't go in the goal for Titans, despite plenty of loud support from the sideline. A special mention to Jade Maloney for her game, but player of the day went to Paige Toone for a gutsy performance.
There was some excellent play by the EBOP Plant Services Awakeri Aces against a tough 9th grade Kawerau team, who won 4 – 1. Aces had no reserves, so the players were kept very busy. Ollie Fort received player of the day for great commitment to the ball.

Private Asset Management 13th grade Awakeri Comets were at home to Whakatane Force. The game was very even for most of the first half, until Whakatane scored a good long range goal and followed it with a second before half-time. Force added two more goals in the second half and could have had a lot more but for some good work by the Comets defence. Luella Howe battled for everything and was named player of the day in Whakatane's 4 - 0 win.
