poi's perfect record, but the other
two matches were much closer.

Central for much of their match
but eventually faded to their third
straight loss, 41-48.
In the final match of the day,
Rangiora High School just got
past Clarkville by two points.
The win means the students,
Central and Clarkville all sit on a

two first-half penalties to one
from Saracens' Ricky Allin for a
6-3 lead at the break, but
Saracens surged ahead later in
the second half.

Saracens' hopes of continuing on
their recent winning form.
At Ohoka, thoughts of the home

Kaiapoi back line.
The game was a scrappy affair,
but the tries scored did provide
some good moments.
Kaiapoi scored the first of its six
tries after only seven minutes

nett barged his way over.
A 14-0 margin looked ominous,
but Ohoka did not wave the sur-

with time running out.
Right on fulltime, Ohoka, who
had been down to 13 players after
more moments of ill discipline,
scored a bonus try to make the
final score 38-13.
Oxford's Sean Thompson kicked
Ashley off the park in their clash
Seeking to avoid a four-match
losing streak, Oxford competed on
even terms with an Ashley side
eager to make up for its disap-

In the end Thompson's six pen-
alties gave Oxford an 18-15 win.
