GLENMARK OVERCAME a heavy penalty
count to beat Kaiapoi 33-21 in round three
of the Luisetti Seeds North Canterbury
senior rugby competition on Saturday.
The win also ensured the Deans Shield
remained in Glenmark's possession for
another two weeks, with no club games this
Saturday, due to the annual Southbridge
Glenmark ran in five unanswered tries,
but the trusty boot of Kaiapoi's Tyler
Burgess kept his side in the game with
seven successful penalty attempts.
Kaiapoi used the north-west wind to
their advantage in the opening exchanges.
Burgess kicked his first two penalties,
but once Glenmark gained territory, it
opened up chances.
Right winger Malie Bula streaked away
to score the opening try.
The 30 metre solo effort was the first of
his three tries.
Ten minutes later, Bula scored his sec-
ond, in the wake of a Kaiapoi defensive
mix-up in mid-field.
Matt Daly added his second conversion to
give the visitors a 14-6 lead.
Burgess kicked two more penalties before
the break, to bring Kaiapoi within two
points at halftime.
The second half was only four minutes
old when Glenmark prop Andrew Zupisich
scrambled over for his side's third try.
Burgess quickly replied with his fifth
penalty to keep Kaiapoi in the contest.
Midway through the half, Glenmark cen-
tre Jarkie Aka ripped his way through the
Kaiapoi defence to score a defining try.
With 10 minutes remaining, a nervous
Glenmark coaching staff was faced with
Kaiapoi on attack and looming only five
Its anxiety was eased five minutes from
time when Glenmark's Fijian duo combined
to outfox the defence and Bula finished the
job off with a hat-trick try.
At Loburn Domain, Ashley avenged its
combined country competition loss with a
17-12 win against Saracens.
Ohoka caused the upset of the season
when they headed off Oxford 13-3.
Ohoka trailed 0-3 at halftime, but their
second half success was laid by their for-
wards, who gained an upper hand and
proved too strong for Oxford.
Scott Beattie had a stellar day, scoring
all of Ohoka's points.
Competition points: Glenmark 14, Ashley
9, Saracens 7, Kaiapoi 6, Oxford 5, Ohoka 4.

HURUNUI REMAIN winless after four
rounds of the North Canterbury Netball
Centre premier competition, but played bet-
ter than a bottom of the table side against
Central on Saturday.
Central's 60-48 victory flattered the sec-
ond place side, which had to work for every-
thing they got against an enthusiastic
Hurunui -- now firmly planted at the bot-
tom of the ladder.
The opening exchanges were even, but
Central managed to build a five goal lead
late in the first quarter.
Central carried that momentum on, and
by halftime, had a 33-18 lead.
Hurunui fought back in the third quarter
and pulled five goals back to be behind by
just 10, going into the final period of play.
The fourth quarter was an even affair,
with Central only managing to increase
their lead by two goals for the 12 point win.
Kaiapoi had its toughest encounter in
recent weeks, with Clarkville offering a
A determined Clarkville refused to give
Kaiapoi any breathing space as they fought
to the end, but eventually went down by
four goals, 55-51.
Up 14-11 at the first break, Kaiapoi loo-
ked ominous after a strong second quarter
produced a 28-20 halftime lead.
A consistent Clarkville kept coming at
their opponents and won the third quarter
to be down by six after three quarters.
The final 10 minutes saw Clarkville
again close the gap by two goals.
For Kaiapoi, the win further cements
their place at the top of the table, but
Clarkville will take a lot out of their
impressive third and fourth quarter efforts.
In the final premier match of the day,
Rangiora High School dominated Ohoka all
over the court in delivering its one-sided
After a low scoring first quarter that pro-
duced just 11 goals in total, it was the
students who had the lead 7-4.
Rangiora went to another level in the
second period and held a commanding 19-9
lead at halftime.
The struggling Ohoka never recovered
and were down by 17 goals at three quarter
time, before eventually going down by a
whopping 25 goals.
