In their last league home game for 2011, City did the business in comfortably beating Western Suburbs 3-0 to remain first equal on the table with one game to go --- against Olympic on the Wakefield Park astro turf (Saturday, 2.45pm). Wellington United won on Saturday to remain equal with Upper Hutt City (on 40 points and 10 clear of the third running Stop Out). United's 3-2 win over Wainui- omata kept them in the hunt but moved City's better goal differen- tial out to five, a statistic that will come into the reckoning if both sides win on Saturday. United play fourth-placed Mira- mar Rangers, at the same time and on the turf alongside City in an interesting final-round fixture list. City are in the box seat for con- secutive titles and they look good to again be earning the chance to play off for promotion to next year's Central League. City coach Pedro Garcias, who had some late game time on Saturday, knows this week's training and Saturday's prep- aration will be important. We just have to concentrate and, on Saturday, not worry about what's going on beside us. After the game I said to the boys that we hadn't won anything yet and in football you just never know. We just have to keep work- ing hard and doing all the right things,'' Garcias said of his side, which has lost only three games from 17 this year. Western Suburbs belied their bottom-placing on Saturday and asked plenty of a City side playing in front of another good crowd bedecked in the club's orange colours. The crowds have been good all year but for a while there on Saturday it was a bit tough,'' Garcias says. I guess Suburbs, being on the bottom, came to the game with no pressure.'' City's much-anticipated only first-half goal took 30 minutes to arrive, courtesy of the increasingly influential Phil Patterson, a mid-season signing from Lower Hutt City who grabbed another in the second- half. He's brought a bit of experience to our game in the middle of the park and a few goals too,'' Garcias says. The other strike went to Mat Gasper and though a few more chances were created and not put away, Garcias was happy with the result. Hands off: Rimutaka netball's goal attack Kathleen Beckett vies for possession with her SCOG opponents in Saturday's major semi-final in the Wellington regional super league. Wing Attack Renee Kassey is at right. Photo: PETER MCDONALD Hard battle to get to final By COLIN WILLIAMS A down and up' weekend in Wel- lington regional super league play has seen Rimutaka Rugby play their way into the final of the competition's division two this Sunday. Rimutaka did it the hard way though. They had a weekend double- header after losing to St Cath- erine's Old Girls 44-53 in their Saturday major semifinal, after being six goals in deficit at halftime. Because they had finished sec- ond after the six-team round- robin play, Rimutaka had a life' and they used it to full effect 24 hours later by heading off Wel- lington East 52-48 in a close elimination final. The outcome of that is Rimu- taka will again meet SCOG, a side they have been competitive enough against in their match- ups. The match is to be at 1.40pm at Kilbirnie's Wellington Indoor Stadium and it will be the curtain-raiser to the division one final between PIC 2 and Wel- lington East 1. Sunday's game will not be the season-ender for Rimutaka either. On Saturday week (the 27th at 2pm) they will return to Hutt Valley to play at the Walter Nash Stadium for their premier- one season final against Naenae White. This is a delayed fixture, determined by these two sides finishing first and second in the full strength first round of the Hutt Valley competition mid- year and ahead of their pro- motion to the regional super league.
