Vik­ings storm the Univer­sity to win

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

The Porirua Vik­ings reg­is­tered a 32- 24 win over Univer­sity on Satur­day, while St Ge­orge reg­is­tered a win against Pe­tone.

In the sec­ond half, Jon Masaga and An­ton Wereta crossed and the game looked sewn up, with the Vik­ings ahead by 14 with just un­der 20 min­utes to play.

Univer­sity en­sured a tense fin­ish with two late tries.

St Ge­orge notched up their sec­ond win of the sea­son with aplomb, although they were down 18-4 to Pe­tone at half­time. The sec­ond half was among the best they have played all year, as they piled on 30 unan­swered points at Can­nons Creek Park to win 34-22.

The Vik­ings’ win means they have a two-point lead at the top of the stand­ings over Rand­wick, with Te Aroha and Wainuiomata a fur­ther point back in third.

The Dragons play Rand­wick on Satur­day, while the Vik­ings take on Wainui.

Last week’s rugby league re­port was ac­com­pa­nied by a pho­to­graph of Nooroa Akavi scor­ing a try for the Vik­ings’ re­serve grade side, not the pre­miers. The er­ror is re­gret­ted.
