It was a great day, great weather and a great turnout at the Midget and Junior League Tournament on August 28 at Lindvardt Park. Organised by Hore- ke's Richard Koroi, Far North NZ Rugby League representative, the day was based around a final rugby league tournament for midgets and juniors. The purpose was to encourage all youngsters to get out and play rugby league. Teams from as far away as Whangarei attended and the focus was on participation, fun and whanau involvement. Rally team on track for glory Impressive: Tearing it up on the track. Inset: Kingsley Thompson The crowds were treated to a taste of what Team Dilusi is capable of at the Rally of Hawkes Bay on July 20 and 21. The impressive display leading up to the team's off-road excursion proved the freshly paired North- land boys have what it takes to challenge for the national championship title. A consistent pace on day one secured top five stage times and they fin- ished fifth on Saturday afternoon, only three seconds away from fourth place. Driver Kingsley Thompson and co-driver Aaron Conaghan pro- cured the second fastest time in the second stage on Sunday, only two seconds slower than rally leader and current national champ Dean Sumner. They then went on to pull another second- fastest stage time on the subsequent stage, bet- tering the stage record that was set in 2009 by Richard Mason. An unfortunate wide line on a fast corner ended the brilliant run for the team in the fourth stage of the day, leaving them unable to continue. Despite not finishing, the team couldn't be happier about the pace they showed. We were working well together in the car on Sunday morning and finding extra speed on the tricky roads,'' Thompson says. Everyone was thrilled with our performance. The fact that we managed those times two stages in a row should speak for itself.'' The goal now is to repair the car, win the Rally of the North on October 15 and make some serious plans for next year's attack.'' The team are on the hunt for a naming rights sponsor that will help them secure next year's campaign. Follow the team at www.teamdilusi.co.nz and stay tuned for the Rally of the North in October. College seniors win two, lose one There was excitement on the court at the North- land Secondary Schools Senior Girls Basketball Championships in Whangarei on August 18.The Kaitaia College senior girls basketball team were matched against Panguru Area School in their first game, and the more experienced players of Te Ruawai Herbert-Brown and Creole Wallace saw Kaitaia win comfortably 31-6. All of the Kaitaia Col- lege team had time on court with newbies Riley Oxborogh, Lenka Veza and Jessie Fleet enjoying the experience. The second match was against top seeds Whangarei Girls High School, a team stacked with quality players including New Zealand age group rep Jamie Lee Tito and the talented Leilani Cameron. Whangarei Girls were a well-drilled side and although Kaitaia College battled bravely they could not match their slick passing and shoot- ing and went down 36-18. The loss saw Kaitaia playing off for third against Broadwood Area School. Herbert-Brown and Wallace put in strong performances while June Leef, Liza Jenkins, Phoenix Pivac and Waimaria Smith- Harrison contributed on attack and defence. Coach Lesley Wallace was pleased with the 20-9 win that secured her team third place. Bowls centre opens Official: Ellen Martin throws the first jack and bowl. It was a great turnout for the official Bowls Far North Centre opening on Sunday, August 21. MC Fred Toi started the proceedings with the Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Te Tonga o Hokianga and Claire Tapuni sing- ing two lovely songs. Guest speakers included Shane Lloyd, sponsor of bowls in the Hokianga, and Joel Quitta from Sports Northland. President Margaret Walters officially opened the season and Opononi's oldest member, Ellen Martin, sent up the first jack and bowl. The day finished with a great lunch put on by the ladies of the Opononi Bowling Club. Kerikeri too strong In their penultimate football league game of the season, Kerikeri hosted Bream Bay. Kerikeri opened the scoring when Isaac Laurie Williams played a neat one two with Zdenek Rosa, which found Rosa clean through on goal and he duly applied an excellent finish to put his team 1-nil up at the break. Kerikeri dominated in the second half and it wasn't long before they had their second goal, when Aiden O'Connor put in a through pass to Danny Spake, who sent the ball over the advanc- ing keeper's head. Bream Bay hit back with a goal but it didn't halt Kerikeri's push for more goals. Coleman enjoyed a solo run to smash the ball across the keeper. After the restart Mark Roberts played a ball to Coleman who beat his marker and fired across the keeper for his second of the game to make it 4-1. With minutes left, Damon Lucas won the ball in midfield and played it to Tomas Trombik who rounded the keeper to make the final result 5-1.
