Photo: GREG MOLLER Top spot in sight By KRIS DANDO Tawa-Lyndhurst number one men's team have started the season with a bang, notching two solid wins over Lower Hutt and Paraparaumu. On October 27 they kept a clean slate with a 6-0 drub- bing over Lower Hutt, before recording a solid 4-2 victory over Paraparaumu on Novem- ber 3. Pratt Keerasuntonpong, who plays at number three, is showing off his burgeoning talent. He is so far unbeaten. Other members Luke Donovan and Rhett Purcell -- who travel from Hawke's Bay and Auckland, respectively, to play for Tawa-Lyndhurst -- and Cam Wenham and Fran- cis Glover, make up a strong side that will push hard for a top-four spot, Glover says. We have a pretty young team and I think we should do well this season.'' Thorndon, Wellington and Paraparaumu are likely to be the toughest teams to knock over, he says, so the recent win over the latter proves they can foot it in the top grade. Wenham, Keerasuntonpong and Purcell recorded singles' victories, with Donovan and Purcell winning their doubles' tie.There are five more rounds before a break at Christmas, after which the competition is split in two. The bottom four teams play off for promotion-relegation, while the top four compete for the Wellington title. Our aim is that top four,'' Glover says. It's taken a while to build to where we are now but we have a solid girls team [who play in the second division] and very good juniors coming through. The club's looking good.'' Tawa tops in ki-o-rahi PLAYING THE GAME: Two teams -- named Kioma and Taniwha -- play against each other on a circular field consisting of three concentric circles. Each circle constitutes a zone. The outer zone is Te Ao and is 12 metres wide. The middle zone is Te Roto -- six metres wide. The central zone is Te Motu. The aim of the Kioma team is to score tries -- tupu manawa -- with theki--aballmadeofflax--while the opposing Taniwha team attempts to score hits -- tupu wairua -- on the large centre target called a tupu. The team which scores the most points or the team which scores 10 times in a row wins the game. Sweet victory: Tawa College's ki-o-rahi team outplayed 12 other schools in the traditional Maori sport at a tournament at Taita College recently. Tawa College has won a regional ki- o-rahi tournament organised by Col- lege Sport Wellington. Ki-o-rahi is the modern term for ancient Maori games played on a cir- cular field with a large central target. This was the second year the regional tournament has been organ- ised at Taita College. Tawa defeated the host school 22-16 in the final. Thirteen schools took part, includ- ing Mana College, who made it to the semifinals before losing to Tawa. Whaea Jojo organised the Tawa team last year when the first tourna- ment was held. This year's team included year 12 students who played ki-o-rahi in PE class and others interested in the tra- ditional sport. PE teacher Monica Roberts worked alongside mentors in year 12 PE classes preparing the team for the tournament and teaching newcomers rules and strategies. Tawa's Raysharn Edmonds-Lama -- recently selected for the New Zea- land under-18 flag team -- was named MVP of the tournament. Peni Van Den Elzen won the sportsmanship award and was the eyes'' of the team at the centre of the field directing defence. Te Rina Hig- gens was tremendous in her efforts to retain possession of the ki and was named in the tournament team.
