B play­ers seal win for South­ern A

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

South­ern United A played Frank­ton on Satur­day at home on a very quiet Queens Birth­day Week­end. There was no ju­nior sports on and only a few keen sup­port­ers.

South­ern opened the scor­ing with Zane Costar kick­ing a penalty.

With the home for­wards dom­i­nat­ing up front it was only seven min­utes into the game for the first try to the fast-im­prov­ing Lo­gan Kana. This was fol­lowed by tries to Sean McKain, James Foster and James Suther­land. Three of the tries were con­verted by Zane for a 29-nil half­time lead.

Un­for­tu­nately for South­ern A they had a num­ber of play­ers out in­jured or with work com­mit­ments so a very keen group of Bs stepped up and more than proved their worth. No­table per­for­mances were B’s halves Paddy Do­dun­ski and Lo­gan Costar.

Both put on an awe­some dis­play and Lo­gan got to play his first A game with brother Zane.

The sec­ond half kicked off with pace for the home team and soon there were tries to Ned Honey and a sec­ond to Lo­gan Kana be­fore the game got a bit messy. Then a sec­ond try to James Suther­land and one to an­other fast im­prover Josh Bar­ber along with three more con­ver­sions to Zane sealed the win for South­ern United 55-3.

Of note for the home team was the games of Se­nior B prop Jamin Pinker­ton, James Suther­land, War­wick Tay­lor and Zane Costar at full­back. An­other great re­sult and on to Leamington next week. Also, wel­come back to Max Turn­wald from Eng­land.

The South­ern Bs had a bye and the Cava­liers went down 20-10 in a close game in Ohaupo at that club’s 125th ju­bilee.
