Upper Hutt Leader : August 10th 2011

City cooled their heels on the weekend while United, playing a catch-up game, earned three vital championship points with a 3-2 win over Miramar Rangers to tie things up. The three-goal differential may prove crucial in Upper Hutt's ambitions to retain the league title and, for a second year in a row, earn the chance to play off for promotion to the Central League in 2012. To guarantee this they have to win their last two games in the league, including their final game at Harcourt Park, this Saturday (2.30pm) against the bottom side Western Suburbs. City's last game, a week later, is against a tougher outfit, Olympic. Wellington United have a simi- lar run home. They play the second-to-last Wainuiomata before coming up against Miramar Rangers again in a scheduling oddity. Arguably, if the teams are on form and with good playing con- ditions permitting, the title might hang on which of the top teams can better put away their strag- gling opposition. Statistically, Western Suburbs have leaked plenty more than Wainui this season (63 to 35 goals). However, Upper Hutt coach Pedro Garcias is mindful that Wainui are expected to be without several regular players. Everyone in the team is excited about where we are and these final two games,'' Garcias said. Yes, it might come down to goal difference. Who knows?'' Rippa! A world cup Silverstream Primary School was yesterday carrying the hopes of Wellington -- and Russia -- into the quarter-finals of Rippa World Cup rugby at the North Harbour stadium. The 10-strong Silverstream mixed gender team qualified for the big Auckland event by win- ning the Wellington regional tour- nament in June. On Monday the local 10 and 11-year-olds played their way into yesterday's finals play, one of only four unbeaten sides and set to meet Wales (Otago's Arrowtown School) in a quarter-final mid- morning yesterday. More than 580 schools took part in regional qualifying tournaments. The national event features 20 New Zealand schools representing the world cup nations with the tournament mirroring the actual draw of next month's world cup. Other quarter-finalists are New Zealand (Northland's Whau Val- ley School), Fiji, Romania, Argentina, Australia and Tonga. Hundreds of supporters, with faces painted and waving home- made flags and banners, are at Albany to cheer on their teams. Rippa is a non-contact form of rugby where to effect a tackle'' players rip velcro-fastened tags off opponents' waists. Cutting through: St Pat's Silverstream halfback George Vance slips through the Wellington College defence in a move that led to a try in Sunday's Wellington Premier Secondary School final. Photo: PETER MCDONALD Silverstream's last play Pre-match favourites St Patrick's Silverstream had to accept an unexpected loss when they were headed off 20-18 by Wellington College in the big final of Welling- ton Premier Secondary School rugby at the Petone Rec on Sunday. The game, a curtain-raiser for Wellington club rugby's Jubilee Cup final, was an exciting affair with the match-winning try coming from Wellington College left winger TeDee Sami in the cor- ner with only a few minutes to play. Silverstream, who had beaten their arch rivals two from two in close games during the 2011 season, played themselves into the lead midway through the second half with a try to the hooker Andrew Knight following an even first 40 minutes where all the points came in the last few minutes. Wellington College crossed for the game's first five-pointer to go ahead 8-3, before Silverstream fullback James Perkinson scored in the opposite corner thanks to a scything break by halfback George Vance which delivered the 8-8 halftime deadlock. Wellington College's win will see them play Gisborne Boys' High School in a regional final, the winner going to the national Secondary Schools Top Four.
