Second round competition is taking its toll, especially in rugby and netball, but the big disap- pointment was the emphatic defeat of Pak 'n Save Upper Hutt City in their knock out Chatham Cup match (see story this page). The opening rounds of netball's Wellington Regional Super League saw games played on the Saturday and Sunday, four in all involving Rimutaka Rugby in div- ision one and Maidstone United in division two, for four defeats. Rimutaka went down 63-55 to the SMOG 1 combination in a well contested affair but felt the full force of the PIC 1 team the day after, tumbling 78-29. In Division 2 Maidstone, despite the regional sweep of the compe- tition, were involved in a local derby at the Walter Nash Stadium on Saturday against Convent Old Girls who they had comfortably beaten earlier in the season. However, Convent put in their best performance of the year to head Maidstone by a single goal (45-44) while the locals were no contest for the PIC 2 team on Sunday, going down 61-27. In rugby league the Upper Hutt Tigers were improved and com- petitive on their Whakatiki Park track against Wainuiomata but, in the end, the locals had to bow down 26-8 as their visitors moved back to the top of the Wellington premier club league competition. In rugby, Upper Hutt are mak- ing hard work of the cut-throat Jubilee Cup. Beset by injuries, the side was against all odds in going down to Marist St Pats and, after two games, they sit last in the eight-team cup. In the Hardham Cup, promotion seeking Rimutaka missed out again, losing 29-11 to Wests while the Upper Hutt seconds lost 27-8 to MSP in senior two play. There was one silver cloud on a grey weekend though. In senior two rugby, Stokes Val- ley recorded their first win of a troubled season, beating Avalon 24-13.

Photo: PETER MCDONALD By COLIN WILLIAMS The Chatham Cup dream is over for the Pak 'n Save Upper Hutt City football side after they were well beaten by Wellington United, their co-leaders in the Central Premier League. City's good run in the knock-out Chatham Cup ended when they were handed a 5-2 loss from United at Newtown Park on Saturday, faltering in their dream to go through to the national com- petition's final 16. The defeat of Island Bay by Miramar Rangers on Saturday leaves Upper Hutt and United top of the league table on 22 points and, in a twist of events, both teams are to meet again on Saturday and again at Newtown Park. Earlier in the season United beat City with a last-minute goal but Saturday's expected close game never eventuated. Coach Pedro Garcias concedes Wellington United played very well and it wasn't our day''. It's the first time we have con- ceded goals like that. We created chances and didn't grab them in the key moments. We fell away but we did have a good Cup run but now, Saturday is going to be very important for us. We simply can't afford to lose. They will be very confident so it's very important we go there and get the three points and get ahead in the league,'' he says. With eight games to play, City remain in the reckoning to defend their title while United will have to balance their league and high profile Cup responsibilities. Upper Hutt were always playing catch up, remaining behind 2-1 and 4-2 after their goals and paid the price for having to push players forward. Garcias points to strong, con- structive games from Joel Marsh- all, the side's player of the day at centre back,and Brook Wate but is upfront in accepting his charges were well outplayed. However, he also expresses reservations about the game's refereeing. The referee played a good part ofthegame. . .therewereafew calls, not all the time, that weren't 100 percent and they [United] took advantage of it,'' Garcias says.
