5:19 pm on 9 April 2012

The Young Football Ferns have started the Oceania Under 17 Women's Championships with a seven nil win over the Cook Islands in Mangere today.

New Zealand next play New Caledonia, who lost 1-nil to Papua New Guinea and can all-but confirm their place at the under-17 World Cup in Azerbaijan, if they win that match on Wednesday.
