Foot­ball first XI takes out di­vi­sion two


The Here­taunga Col­lege girls’ foot­ball firsts capped off the best of sea­sons by re­cently tak­ing out Col­lege Sport Welling­ton’s Re­gional Premier 2 Onslow Cup com­pe­ti­tion.

The side beat Tawa 3-1 in the di­vi­sion fi­nal at Me­mo­rial Park in Pe­tone.

Emma Lav­ery, the cap­tain, had a night to re­mem­ber as she struck a fi­nal hat-trick in what was a con­vinc­ing team dis­play.

The re­sult re­versed the score from ear­lier in the sea­son, when Tawa was vic­to­ri­ous in pool play.

Both sides fin­ished roundrobin play with six wins, with Here­taunga emerg­ing on top due to a su­pe­rior goal dif­fer­en­tial. Over­all, in their 10-game sea­son, Here­taunga con­ceded only on six goals while amass­ing 52.

Ear­lier Here­taunga met their lo­cal Up­per Hutt Col­lege ri­vals in a one plays four semi-fi­nal which proved a close 1-0 af­fair with the tal­ented Lav­ery again the telling goal scorer.

Lav­ery fin­ished the Re­gional Premier 2 com­pe­ti­tion with 27 goals and was se­lected for the Cap­i­tal Foot­ball Na­tional Women’s League squad.

The vic­to­ri­ous Here­taunga Col­lege Girls First XI team is: Rosie Bail­lie, Misty Be­ban, Sara Far­rell, Jessie Goose, Summer Hicks, Dylen Kingi, Emma Lav­ery, Rachael Mil­lar, Syd­ney Mundy, Han­nah Routhan, Car­lie Rua, Jade Slater, Brieze Va’A, Ar­wen Wi­tana and Brenna Wood.

Mean­while, the Hutt In­ter- na­tional Boys’ School first were un­able to bring home a third Youth Cham­pi­onship Premier Boys’ ti­tle in three years.

The side went down 2-1 to St Pat’s Welling­ton in their fi­nal.


Here­taunga Box­ing’s Ryan Scaife pow­ered his way to an­other am­a­teur na­tional ti­tle when he was im­pres­sive in win­ning the Elite Men 75kg ti­tle at the New Zealand Box­ing Cham­pi­onships in Ro­torua on the week­end.

Rep­re­sent­ing Welling­ton/ Hutt Val­ley, Scaife pro­duced the goods against Auck­land’s Fran­cis Waitai in an ef­fort which later saw him win the Jame­son Belt, awarded to the event’s most sci­en­tific se­nior boxer.

The 22-year-old’s four wins and his over­all tech­ni­cally su­pe­rior dis­play, will have fur­ther put him line to rep­re­sent New Zealand at the Com­mon­wealth Games on the Gold Coast next year.

Three Welling­ton/Hutt Val­ley box­ers won ti­tles in the na­tional’s youth and elite com­pe­ti­tion.

Scaife’s Here­taunga club­mate Szi­lard Las­zlo took out the youth 75kg event and Kapiti’s Michael Reynolds emerged best in the youth 69kg cat­e­gory.


The Up­per Hutt Val­ley mixed fours in­door bowls team were un­able to de­fend their New Zealand ti­tle in na­tion­als play at the Ex­pres­sions Re­cre­ation Cen­tre on Septem­ber 16. The side, skipped by Ash­ley Di­a­mond, fin­ished fourth of the eight teams, with four wins and three losses. Tau­ranga were the ti­tle win­ners ahead of Otago and South Can­ter­bury.
