The defending champions' emphatic turnaround win on Saturday came just seven days after they crashed out of the sepa- rate Chatham Cup competition, 5-2 to the same opposition. It was a brilliant result and a top game. Both teams played good football,'' City coach Pedro Garcias says. City's effort means they have a two-point lead in the central league, sitting on 25 ahead of Miramar Rangers (23) and United and Island Bay (both 22). Garcias says the turnaround came on the back of some hard work and the right attitude. We had a good talk, as a team, and said we couldn't afford to drop any points from here. I told them getting one point (from the United game) was not going to be enough. All week I could see they had the right attitude, that they were hungry for it and on Saturday I could see it on their faces,'' Garcias says. This win was important and will give us a little confidence. After losing and having that tough experience, we played really well as a team.'' Saturday's goals came courtesy of Luke Grindley (after just three minutes), Matt Bennett, Jake Ellis and Joel Marshall. At 3-1 City missed a penalty and, when United got it back to 3-2, with 25 minutes to go, it was all for the winning before Marshall's 80th minute strike brought home the victory. Garcias emphasises the full team effort but points to important individual efforts from Brook Wate, Sam Rausch and the often unheralded goalkeeper Michael Halsey. City have seven games to play to retain their title and earn the chance for promotion to the Cen- tral League. To me, they are all finals and we have to win them all,'' Garcias, in his first year as City's coach, says. The week's preparation saw a couple of late season signings for City in Phil Patterson and Rodney Mays, both ex-Lower Hutt and with a background alongside Garcias who spent many seasons with the southern valley outfit. Patterson, a central midfielder, played the second 45 minutes on Saturday after Jonathon Wink- worth was subbed because of an injury. He went well and he brings plenty of experience which is good for us because we are a young side and together, the two of them, gives us a bigger squad,'' Garcias says. City are home to Olympic on Saturday before two away games against Wainuiomata and Marist. All three sides sit in the bottom half of the competition and Garcias is aware of the need to not take them, or anything, for granted in City's chase for the title.

By COLIN WILLIAMS Charging on: Troy Jordan takes the ball, and two Norths players, upfield. Photos: PETER MCDONALD A thrilling come from behind win, including two late tries, delivered an important first Hardham Cup victory to Rimu- taka on Saturday. The much needed win ignited Rimutaka's hopes for playing their way into premier rugby next year for the first time in the club's history. After two away losses Rimu- taka celebrated being back on their home Maoribank Park with a 18-16 win over the Norths seconds, a fellow senior one side which had won their opening two games. With four games to play, Rimutaka have plenty to do with their next home game -- against Tawa on Saturday week -- poten- tially the season maker or breaker. To earn promotion Rimutaka (now on 4 points) have to finish ahead of one of three premier sides in Tawa (4), Wests (6) or Avalon (7) with the fourth Old Boys-Uni unbeaten and already safe. Whatever the permutations, Saturday's win was needed big time and with the 'Taka down 16-8 with 10 minutes to play it was not looking likely. I was impressed with the way the boys reacted to the pressure, to those first two losses,'' coach Logan Ili says. The side had a number of players missing but late tries to the winger Jason Douglas and the prop Walter Treviranus got them home. Martin Asiata, playing at lock, led his troops well in those final minutes and Ili says there was plenty to like in the character shown across the field. We've come through our injury problems and we'll have our full team for next week (against Poneke, Kilbirnie Park, 1.15pm). The question is how far wewanttogo. . .''
