Kapiti House have won the 2015 Interhouse Football competition, after a nail-biting extra time, double penalty shootout in the Senior Final.
Earlier in the day, the Kapiti House Junior team avenged their pool-play loss to Ruahine House by beating them 3-2 in their final.
The five a side, quick scoring indoor game has been a popular lunchtime attraction, with hundreds of people attending the event.
As the final shot at goal was deflected onto the post and away, Kapiti House’s senior team ran together to celebrate the close victory. Goal-Keeping hero, as well as scorer of two goals in the final, Jake Benseni had more reason to celebrate than most. Jake identified “solidarity” and “working hard as a team” as the secret to their success. The team is also notable for it’s international flavour with Europeans, Asians, and even an Australian in the line up.
This win evens out the Interhouse Competition rankings, with all three houses making ground on front-runners Manawatu House.
