Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

Porirua City United dipped out in the semi-fi­nals of the men’s in­ter­city soft­ball com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, but the team are able to re­flect on a solid sea­son.

The pre­mier 1 side came up short against the Hutt Val­ley Dodgers, go­ing down 13-8.

The week be­fore PCU went down in the Welling­ton fi­nal, 8- 2 to Poneke-Kil­birnie.

‘‘They had an ex­cel­lent sea­son, go­ing as far as they did in both com­pe­ti­tions, and they’re com­pet­i­tive ev­ery time they play,’’ PCU club cap­tain Alex Carter said.

The PCU Pre­mier 1 women’s team, mean­while, lost 5- 4 to Te Aroha on Satur­day, miss­ing out on a spot in the semi-fi­nals.

Carter says along with ex­cel­lent re­sults on the field, their 25th re­u­nion cel­e­bra­tion and se­cur­ing spon­sor­ship, the club is in good heart.

The next fo­cus for the men and women’s sides is their in­ter­club tour­na­ments, be­gin­ning in midMarch.

Wind­ing up: Chris Hamp­ton’s pitches couldn’t save Porirua City United from a drub­bing on Satur­day, with the team los­ing 13-8 to the Hutt Val­ley Dodgers.
