Like the Rankin Cup the girls Federation Cup hockey in Auckland produced ample excitement. A Jessie Anderson goal in extra time gave Christchurch's Villa Maria College their first national secondary schools title. Villa Maria beat Auckland's St Cuthbert's College 2-1 in the final in on Saturday, with Anderson's winner coming in the second period of golden goal extra time, when the drop off rule reduced each team to seven players.
Earlier, Maddie Wotton gave Villa Maria a 1-0 lead in the first half, before St Cuthbert's equalised.
The win also gave Villa Maria the Pat Barwick Shield, which St Cuthbert's won off Villa Maria in their third and fourth playoff match a year ago.
Villa Maria only lost one game all season and beat St Margaret's College in the Christchurch schools premier league final this season. Villa Maria scored 29 goals in the Federation Cup. Maddie Wotton with 10 goals was Villa Maria's top goal scorer in the tournament. There were 32 teams competing and 112 matches played.
