Huanui College's young futsal players proved too good at Whangārei's ASB Stadium as two of the school's teams took out the top two spots at yesterday's mixed Year 9-10 futsal competition.

Eight teams took to the courts yesterday including three from Huanui College, two from Kaitaia College, and one each from Rodney College, Taipa Area School and Whangaroa College.

Huanui Silver were the best on the day, beating Huanui Blue 6-0 in the final. Rodney College claimed the bronze with a win over Taipa Area School in the third and fourth playoff.

Northern Advocate photographer John Stone went along to catch the action.
