Upper Hutt Leader : May 11th 2011
56 UPPER HUTT LEADER, MAY 11, 2011 SPORT Fans plan big day for City game By COLIN WILLIAMS Harcourt Park on Saturday is the place to be as the in- form Pak 'n Save Upper Hutt City football team take on Waterside-Karori in a knock- out Chatham Cup encounter which has plenty riding on it.Buoyed by their return to the top of the Central Prem- ier League, City will be look- ing to push on in the charis- matic Chatham Cup. City supporters are organ- ising a dress up in orange day'' and looking to make the most of welcoming Waterside-Karori and their coach, Ian Porteous, in par- ticular. Porteous was a popular figure when in charge of City for the three previous seasons and took them to the championship title last year before moving on to take up the reins at Waterside- Karori. We want a massive crowd on the balcony giving Ian Porteous and the Wharf' a good old Upper Hutt wel- come,'' a club flier says. There's a lot going on. It's going to be a top day,'' City coach Pedro Garcia says. Ian did a good job in his three years and seeing him back does make it extra special.'' The football club's lower grade sides are all playing early and will be get back to the clubrooms to make their presence known on what is shaping up as a raucous and colourful afternoon. On the weekend City moved back to the top of the league after comfortably disposing of Marist 3-1 with the two Matts scoring the goals -- two to Gasper and one to Bennett. City's premier league lead came 24 hours later when Wellington United were held to 3-all by Stop Out, delivering a two-point com- petition lead to City. The defending champions have impressively won five from six this season and racked up an 18-goal differ- ential. In contrast Waterside- Karori (who City have not yet played) have struggled but they grabbed their first win on Saturday, beating third-placed Olympic. That was a good result for them and Ian will be preparing his team well plus he will have some real know- ledge about us, of course and that will bring some confi- dence to them,'' Garcia says. Upper Hutt City play Waterside-Karoriat Harcourt Park on Saturday, 2pm. Locals carry on their winning way Close range: Maidstone United's Evie Langlands, left, and HSOG's Hilary Bevan contest the ball in Hutt Valley premier netball.

The two local sides, along with the Naenae White and Blue combinations, sit unbeaten after three games in a competition which has quickly spilt into two groupings. The top four sides have gathered nine competition points while the remaining four are winless. Next week's games should deliver more of the same for Maidstone and Rimutaka before the harder games, including the rampaging Naenae White, are taken on. Maidstone United led all the way in their game against High School Old Girls, comfortably winning 52-32 after leading 27-17 at halftime. Maidstone's strength was in their teamwork, finished positively by Nicole Espinosa and Mel Leitch who both had strong games in goal. It's coming together,'' coach Shane Simpson says. We are improving. The shooters were good and they rotated well in the circle and we brought the ball up court well.'' The draw, playing the likely weaker teams first, has probably been an advantage, Simpson says. We can actually build to the bigger games. That's a bonus.'' Rimutaka had to work a bit harder against their Convent OG opposition. They looked a little unsettled early on and were held to a single goal lead in the first quarter then four goals, 30-26, at halftime. The amber and blacks are a quality side and with Kathleen Beckett proving a good acquisition alongside Sharyna Te Puia, Rimutaka kept their patterns and composure to forge on to win 63-54. On Saturday, Rimutaka meet sixth- placed Ulalei while Maidstone play the bottom side, Manaroa Green. 3 Geange St Upper Hutt Phone 528 8409 Open: Mon/Tues/Wed 7am - 6pm • Thurs/Fri 7am - 7pm • Sat 7am - 5pm Upper Hutt • Free Parking • Friendly People www.emw.co.nz O O O O O Open: M M M M Mo n/ / / / / /T T T T Tu es/ / / / / /W W W W Wed d d d d7 7 7 7am 6 6 6 6 6pm•T T T T Th h h h hurs/ / / / / /F F F F Fri i i i7 7 7 7am 7 7 7 7pm•S S S S S Sat t t t7 7 7 7am 5 5 5 5pm U U U U Upper H H H H Hut t t tt t t t • F F F F Free P P P P Park k k k ki i i ing • F F F F Fri i i iend d d d dl l l l lyP P P P Peopl l l l le www emw co nz 2304462CX BUY $20.00 OF RUMP STEAK AND WE WILL GIVE YOU $20.00 OF RUMP STEAK FREE !
