rise to win

ONE DESPERATE, bone-crunching
tackle reversed the Saracens' for-
tunes during Saturday's Lusetti
Seeds combined country champion-
ship 28-21 victory over Kaiapoi at
For the first 60 minutes, it looked
for all money that Kaiapoi would
romp to victory.
Leading 21-16, another try looked
imminent until the game-changing
tackle turned defence into attack.
Saracens' flanker Nathan Goodwin
broke away before handing the ball
to speedster Josh Harrison, who
dashed 80m to score.
The conversion handed the home
side a two-point lead.
Before fulltime, Harrison scored
his second, after his inside man
Nathan Reid had made a break.
Saracens stayed on top in the early
exchanges with a try scored after
just two minutes and a Ricky Allin
penalty three minutes later.
Kaiapoi never let the team out of
its sights and soon responded with
a converted try and a penalty to
It then dominated with another
try to fullback Tauria McDonald.
Before halftime, both sides
exchanged penalties, with Kaiapoi
up 15-10 at the break.
Kaiapoi's domination continued
early in the second spell, but it con-
ceded too many penalties, which
kept Saracens in the contest.
Ashley has moved to the top of sec-
tion two with a comprehensive 38-24
win over Mid Canterbury team,
Hampstead. A 28-12 lead at halftime
meant the job was effectively done
for Ashley, but the southern boys
made sure their bus trip would have
Hampstead out-scored Ashley
12-10 in the second half to leave
the home side with plenty to
ponder before Saturday's encounter
A depleted Oxford dropped a place
in section one after being upset 21-27
by Rakaia, who had the favourites on
the rack in the first half.
Racing away to a 19-3 halftime
lead, Oxford steadily climbed back in
the second spell to earn a bonus
point and keep itself well in conten-
tion for a finals berth.
Glenmark never really got going in
its 5-12 loss to Celtic.
Apart from one first-half try to
Justin Thompson, Glenmark fired
few shots in anger, but remains in
firm contention for a finals berth.
Ohoka breathed some life into its
disappointing campaign with a try in
a much stronger showing against
Darfield, but still went down 5-21.
Scoreboard: Saracens 28: G
Broderson, J Harrison 2 tries. R
Allin 3 penalties, 2 conversions.

Two serious losses tough
way to start the season
down for a
RANGIORA HIGH School's first
XV rugby side was handed its
second hefty defeat in as many
weeks on Saturday.
Determined to improve on its
performance the previous week,
Rangiora started strongly
against the defending cham-
pions and enjoyed a fair share of
territory and possession early.
The team managed a few
assaults on the home side's line,
but was unable to break it.
At halftime, Rangiora had
only a Cameron Millward pen-
alty to show for its efforts,
The second half was domin-
ated by CBHS, which grew in
confidence after an early try,
and won 54-3.
Rangiora coach Jim Gilbert
said going up against the two
best sides in the competition has
been a challenging start, but he
was impressed with how the
players had reacted.
Despite the humbling score-
lines of the last two weeks, this
is a talented group of young
men and they will have plenty
of successes throughout the
Hard-working Rangiora for-
ward Cameron Dyer was player
of the day.
