Taupo have won the Clive Herbert Challenge Cup for the first time, beating holders Tauranga 3-2 in a thrilling match.

The Tauranga Talent Development Centre had held the trophy since its launch last year, defending it against Taupo twice and against Beachlands-Maraetai.

But in mid-September, the Taupo side, coached by Kale Herbert, won the trophy with goals from Nathan Murray and Dylan Gardiner (2).

The challenge cup goes up for grabs once more this year, with Taupo defending it.
