St George fall short against Wainui
St George Dragons stay in sixth place in Wellington’s premier rugby league competition after coming up just short against Wainuiomata on Saturday.
The Dragons lost 22-18 at Wise Park – still a loss, but an example of how far the team has come this season.
The result keeps the Cannons Creek side in the hunt for a playoff spot as it gets close to the business end of the campaign.
Porirua Vikings, meanwhile, remain second-to-bottom after being thumped 50-0 by Te Aroha at Te Whiti Park. The Porirua side had no answer as the competition’s second-placed side ran in tries at will.
Whiti Te Ra stay top of the table after a 34-20 win at Kelburn Park over Randwick.
In reserve grade, Titahi Bay Marlins beat Te Aroha’s reserves 36-26 at Te Whiti Park and are sitting third on 16 points after 11 games.
In Kapi Mana premier netball, Te Tai Timu 1 and Norths 1 fought out a thriller on Saturday.
Te Tai Timu 1 came out the victors, 48-47, to stay unbeaten in the competition after the fourth round.
KBJ 1, who are second, beat Te Tai Timu 2 59-28, and Aotea College overcame Rockz 1 34-26.
In interclub golf, although Royal Wellington lost to Paraparaumu Beach in the Duncan Cup on Saturday, Judgeford’s top team are able to reflect on a fantastic season.
The team were competitive throughout the campaign, especially as they had the two youngest players in Jayden Ford and Qualen Asi in their lineup.
