Teams out of con­test

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

The Porirua basin has no rep­re­sen­ta­tives left in the Chatham Cup af­ter Tawa and Western Sub­urbs both lost in the first round on Satur­day.

Wests, who won the knock­out tour­na­ment in 2007 and made the final the fol­low­ing sea­son, lost 3-1 to Lower Hutt side Stop Out at Hutt Park.

The Porirua club sit midtable in the Cen­tral League, while their op­po­nents are one di­vi­sion be­low and are eighth in the stand­ings.

But the gulf be­tween the two meant noth­ing as Stop Out made the most of the play in the first half, go­ing ahead to a cracker from out­side the box and then a corner that went di­rectly in. Both sides fin­ished the match with 10 men.

At Red­wood, Up­per Hutt City made Tawa’s av­er­age start to the league sea­son worse, knock­ing them out of the Cup with a 2- 0 vic­tory.

It’s back to Cen­tral League play for both sides on Satur­day, with Wests trav­el­ling to Bell Park to take on Lower Hutt, while Tawa host Pe­tone at Red­wood. Both games are slated for a 2.30pm kick­off.
