Photo: DARREN TAUMATA By COLIN WILLIAMS A heartbreak extra-time golden goal' in hockey has ended Heretaunga College's ambition of playing in premier one next season. A top-quality final in the Wel- lington Secondary School premier two competition at the National Hockey Stadium on Friday even- ing ultimately delivered the cruellest of blows for a brave Heretaunga. Their opposition, Paraparaumu College, grabbed the promotion winner in the second phase of extra time, when both sides were reduced to just seven players. The extra-time play came after the normal' game delivered a 2-2 deadlock. Heretaunga's numerous travel- ling supporters created a great atmosphere and offered plenty of vocal support for a game which signed off a strong season of hockey at the college. Two days earlier the Heretaunga seconds had played their reserve grade final against Naenae, bowing out 0-1 in a game in which they had many opportunities to take out the match. On Friday the firsts were good enough to win too, despite going down by a goal early in the game and taking that scoreline to halftime. Heretaunga came out firing and grabbed the equaliser soon enough, putting Paraparaumu under a lot of pressure. With less than 20 minutes to go, Lawson Davison finished off a great goal for what the crowd hoped would be a match-winning lead. But Paraparaumu hit back 10 minutes from normal time to take the match into extra play. A first golden goal three minutes (with nine-a-side) went scoreless. The sides were then reduced to seven for the next phase, which ended after two minutes when Paraparaumu grabbed both their winner and Heretaunga's season ender. It was a tough end but I was really pleased with how the boys played,'' Heretaunga coach Hayden Shaw said. The side played with the best intensity I have seen all season and James Manning, our goal keeper, in particular was out- standing.'' Only three players from this season's crack side will not be returning in 2012. Shaw is confident the now more experienced squad, augmented by some talented younger players coming through, will be able to build on this year's success and achieve the sought after pro- motion. Road race for schools Up to 100 cyclists, competing in four age categories, are expected to take part in the Wellington Schools Road Cycling Champs on Sunday with racing at Trentham, Wallaceville Hill and the Mangaroa Valley. The cumulative event will start with an individual 1.5m hill climb before an 8.6km time trial from Gorrie Rd and finishing with criterium racing. The event begins at 9.15am (at Lane St). Valley inline skaters here and there Upper Hutt's Valley Inline clubmates Antony Nalder and Ollie Jones have gone their separ- ate ways after competing in the World Inline Speed Skating Championships in South Korea International team-mates rep- resenting New Zealand for the first time at this level, Nalder and Jones were were among 700 team athletes from more than 40 countries taking part in the back- to-back road and track champs. Nalder, a specialist sprinter for the team, finished 15th in the 500 metre road circuit in the senior men's grade, with a time of 42.98 seconds. He gathered personal best times in both time-trial events --- the 300m on track (26.23s for 32nd) and the 200m on road (17.49s for 28th), and also competed in the 1000m on track finishing 39th in a large field. Jones, just 15, took part in the junior men's competition, which was this year changed from an under-18 to a under-20 event, lining up in races dominated by experienced 18 and 19 year olds. He was the youngest in the 10 kilometre points track event and survived several elimination laps to finish in 27th place. On the 10km road circuit Jones finished 12th on the line and 19th after the points count back. He completed his individual racing with the 20km elimination on road for 32nd place from the largest field in the junior racing. His three-man relay team took 10th place in the 3000m on track and seventh in the 5000m on road. From Korea, Jones headed to Utah in the United States where he has taken up an offer to transi- tion from inline to ice skating, and will also train in long-track speed skating. Nalder is back home and, with fellow Valley Inline speed-skater Steph Challis, is preparing for a racing tour next month which will include a world inline cup mara- thon in China and shorter events in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
