Belmont Intermediate and Takapuna Normal battled it out for sports supremacy last week in the first of what the two intermediate schools hope will become an annual event.

Competition was keen and close, said Belmont’s sports manager, Alice Browning. “The schools are of a similar size, it was a fun and friendly competition and it was great to see that neither school dominated overall,” she said. Each school shone in some of the sports.

In the end Belmont, which hosted the inaugural event, pipped TNIS by 12-10 points. Eight sports were played last Friday, some in single sex teams and others mixed. TNIS were strong in netball and tag rugby. BIS dominated in girls football and mixed volleyball. Many results were closer, with boys basketball and football drawn.

Browning said the aim of the day was to let students play a variety of sports. It helped fill a competitive gap left by the cancellation, due to covid-19, of North Harbour intermediate school sports zone days in Term 2.

The results were:

  • Hockey (mixed) BIS, 3-1
  • Football (boys) 1-1 draw.
  • Football (girls) BIS, 10-0
  • Basketball (boys) 27-27 draw
  • Basketball (girls) TNIS, 42-10
  • Rugby 7s, TNIS, 7-5
  • Netball TNIS, 28-7
  • Tag rugby (mixed) TNIS, 10-4
  • Volleyball (mixed) BIS, 111-62
  • Table tennis (boys) BIS, 3-0
  • Table tennis (girls), BIS, 2-1.
