Photo: ANDREA O'NEIL Tawa and Western Suburbs have had contrasting starts to the new Central League football season as round four played out in sunshine over the weekend. Tawa went down 7-1 to Petone at Redwood with Jamie Sharp scoring his second goal in two games. The loss sees Tawa prop- ping up the foot of the league table with a point earned from their opening four fixtures. They have played Wairarapa United, Mira- mar and Olympic in the opening weeks with the latter two leading the competition. Wests, meanwhile, continued their excellent start, notching their third win on the trot, edging Napier City Rovers 4-3 at Park Island on Sunday. Coach Lloyd O'Keefe is pleased with the fine opening to the campaign, saying the talent of his youthful squad was showing through, especially in passing and movement. He said the acid test would be when they played the league leaders. Wests have 10 points, the same as Miramar and two shy of Olym- pic.This Saturday sees Tawa host Napier, while Wests travel over the hill to play Wairarapa. Tight battle for shield Hard-fought squash matches were the order of the day as Khan- dallah took the Ma Hribar shield from long-time holders Tawa on April 14. Needing to win more matches than the hosts to take the shield, Khandallah prevailed by 7 to 5. It could have gone either way, but two critical encounters went to Khandallah. These matches were won by two points -- Tom Mackley beating Krishna Naidu 16-14 in the fifth set and Howard Smith beating Grant Slape 17-15 in their decider. In total, more than a third of games played were won by the minimum margin of 2 points. During the three hours of squash, some fine fightbacks were evidenced, although these were generally in vain for Tawa. Hayley Presling, down 2-1 and 13-4 in the fourth game against Jan Sheppard, won 12 straight points to lead 14-13. But she lost the next two points and the match. The challenge coincided with Mahina Hribar's visit from Gis- borne and she was on hand to present the shield to the new holders. Mahina, a life member at Tawa, instigated the shield chal- lenge in 2010 to encourage Wel- lington clubs to interact with each other throughout the grades. Meanwhile, Tawa's Evan Wil- liams was untouchable at the Dwyertech Services Palmerston North Open on April 21. He won all four of his matches in straight games, including an 11-4, 11-9, 11-5 victory over Zac Millar in the final. Bay athletes display class By KRIS DANDO Top summer: Grace Hunter, Ainsleyana Puleiata, Cheyne Copeland, Jenna McKenzie and Mason Lucas were standout athletes over the summer for Titahi Bay Amateur Athletics Club. Titahi Bay Amateur Athletics Club continue to produce fleet- footed runners, dominating many regional events over the summer. Coach Nga Holmes says more than 30 medals were earned at the Colgate Games earlier this year. Feats such as having three girls in the 100m final for 12-year- olds and having them part of the winning 4 x 100m team at the Wellington championships -- the first for the club in more than 10 years -- bodes well for the future. I've never seen a quartet run that fast, I really didn't expect it, but they understand each other. Overall, the kids are getting a solid base in sprinting, it's been going really well these past few years.'' Mafutaga Tau and Fa'aolataga Tau, affectionately known as the Turbo Twins, are now plying their trade for St Pat's Town and will be key ingredients in the McEvedy Shield competitions for years to come. They had humble begin- nings at the club's humble Kura Park. Zane Edwards is another sprinter who gets Holmes ani- mated, and he reels off a number of other runners who will be domi- nant in the coming years. These guys are just doing sen- sational times, no-one can touch them in their age groups. We [TBAAC] had a big say at the interprovincial champs [where Wellington won by 4000 points]. Though athletics has been over- taken by winter sports, Holmes already has plans for October. I've been coaching for many years now and I ask myself occasionally why I do it. But then you see the kids, they train hard, they have goals, and then I know why I'm doing this.''
