Photo: PETER MCDONALD By COLIN WILLIAMS Four hundred people came to see Scott Gardner's second pro- fessional fight at Trentham Racecourse's Vines Room on Saturday night -- but his advertised opponent was not among them. Auckland's William Tauaki was sick and his absence a dis- appointment, but there was still a chance for Gardner to show his hard game against a hastily arranged opponent in Patrick Key, a former amateur with a hard punching reputation and several professional years behind him. The ring-in'' Key started strong but when Gardner unleashed some of his arsenal, his heart looked to be not really in it. Gardner was left showing his frustration after the referee stopped the one-sided contest in round two by a technical knock- out decision, leaving Gardner looking for a more credible opponent at his next scheduled bout in July. The rest of the 10-fight Heretaunga Boxing Club night provided plenty for the willing crowd, with six locals taking to the canvas and winning all but one. Middleweight Junior Ese con- tinued his improvement with a big win, and the Scaife brothers, Ryan and Harry, both cemented points wins and look to be in form going into this weekend's North Island Golden Gloves at Taupo. Chris Ojac and Cody Munn also won on the undercard, and Riley Willis was headed by Troy Broad from the Naenae Boxing Academy. City's momentum drops down a gear By COLIN WILLIAMS A two-goal away loss to Miramar Rangers put a handbrake on the winning momentum of Pak 'n Save Upper Hutt City in Central Premier League football on Saturday. Coming off their second round Chatham Cup win and going into the game as stand-alone league leaders, City were undone because they could not make any- thing tangible of the chances they created, coach Pedro Garcias said. At halftime it was even and we had probably created more chances but not taken them.'' A silly'' free-kick after 10 minutes gave Miramar the lead and forced the young City side into a more attacking formation, but near the game's end, Miramar counter-attacked and scored. Despite the loss, their second from seven games, City remain top of the table, but are now joined by Island Bay, who have a game in hand. City's next game is this Saturday, home at Harcourt, against Waterside-Karori who they beat the week before last in Chatham Cup play. That win has set up an appetis- ing next knock-out Cup fixture on Queen's Birthday Monday. City, again drawn to play at home at Harcourt, will take on Central League opposition in Tawa. PREMIER SPORT Rimutaka Rugby remain first equal in Hutt Valley premier netball after a good win over Naenae Blue in a Saturday round where the competition's unbeaten top four sides played each other. Maidstone United had a tougher morning, crashing 29-71 to the super strong Naenae White in a result which signals plenty. Rimutaka held on for their 61-55 win despite a late surge from the Blues which saw them close the margin to five in the game's last quarter. The win came at a high price for Rimutaka too with the loss of their top defender Jess Peryer, who badly dislocated her ankle in the first quarter. It's a blow for Rimutaka's ambitions and a big disappointment for the young Peryer who has recently been named as a Wellington representa- tive. The two Upper Hutt-based sides will, on Saturday, go head-to-head for the first time this season (Walter Nash Stadium, 11am) while, after a no play Queen's Birthday Weekend there will be big interest in the Wednesday, June 8 game between Rimutaka and Naenae White. This is the last of the first round fixtures and, barring either Maidstone or Naenae Blue upsets' over Rimutaka and Naenae White on Saturday, it will play as a final to decide the first round winner before these teams, and three more, head to Wel- lington Netball Super League play. Maidstone United players Nicole Espinosa and Melissa Leitch have both earned selection in the Netball Wellington Region's under-19 squad. Both were included in the 16-player team after a series of trials and good performances at premier level. Tigers' time out No club play in Wellington rugby league this weekend will give the Upper Hutt Tigers some much needed time to regroup after they were taken apart by the strong Porirua Vikings to the tune of 76-6 on Saturday. Representative trials take over from club play this Saturday before the last of the club compe- tition's first round games on Queen's Birthday Weekend. Upper Hutt were brave and willing in the game's opening 30 minutes at Ascot Park but their limited resources, including a lack of substitutes from the bench, was also going to be exposed in the second 40.This was the Tigers' second 70-point hammering in three games and they sit bottom of the table alongside St George and university but with the worse points differential.
