Seven teams competed in the Hawkes Bay Special Olympics football tournament held at the end of November in Clive.

Proud mum Adrienne Carpenter said a great weekend was had by all.

Teams came from as far afield as Wellington and Rotorua.

The Kapiti team lost in the final narrowly to Hutt Valley 2–3.
