The first international against Vanuatu for the
season is over -- and it would be rare to see a
George Turney's boys turned out in strength
-- 32 of them -- whereas the Taihape All Stars
could only muster 12, so we knew we were in for
an exhausting afternoon, especially as it was
such a fine day.
The whistle blew and our boys played as if
they had been playing together all season. Bang
went in the first goal -- yes for Taihape, off we
went again five minutes later. Bang another
goal to Taihape and so far the Vanuatu lads had
not been able to penetrate the All Stars defence
and even got a shot at goal.
A few changes were made in the Vanuatu
side and on came their 'A' team players, with a
quickgoal -- 2-1. Still to the All Stars. Time wore
on and our boys started to tire. Our forwards
dropped back and one became goal keeper for a
rest. So the All Stars lost control of the centre
and the pressure was applied, 2-2.
Still the All Stars dug deep and took an
opportunity -- goal to the All Stars, 3-2, at half
time and a well needed rest was had by all.
The big questions now was, could the All
Stars last the distance? It became serious
straight after the break. A goal to Vanuatu as
they flung themselves on the All Stars defence,
3-3 and on the game went backwards and
forwards, both sides cancelling each other out.
Then towards the end Vanuatu scored again.
Could the All Stars pick themselves up again?
Yes they did -- straight from the kick-off, down
the left, across the goal and in for the waiting
striker. It seemed so easy, 4-4. Could we do it
Then came the goal to beat all goals -- from
outside the penalty box towards the corner, an
extravagant overhead turning kick went
towards the strikers in the centre, only to go so
wide, it went into the top corner of the goal,
over the keeper's head. The only shame was it
was Vanuatu that scored it. The final score was
5-4. A great game and our boys all deserve a
medal. Everyone played magnificently.
Ill winds on
By WICKET KEEPER
A tough day against Marist on Saturday with
gale force winds making fielding, and play gen-
erally, extremely difficult.
Unfortunately the Taihape team was rather
depleted on Saturday as well, so after encourag-
ing efforts previously, the game in the weekend
proved a massive disappointment.
Marist won the toss and decided to bat.
Excellent fielding and bowling for the first 20
overs provided encouragement, and the Marist
batters struggled to 60 for 4. Unfortunately
both areas became ragged as the day wore on,
and the effects of the wind took hold. Marist
finished their 40 overs 259 for 9. Matt Jacobson
bowled extremely well, if somewhat unluckily,
Brad Fannin took 3 for 56, and bowled well into
the gale, while Nathan Chaney 1 for 33,
Edward Symes 2 for 46, and Kerryn Clark 1 for
22 had their moments.
One of the fielding highlights was a stunning
catch taken by Alex Hawira. Alex finished with
two catches, as did Edward Symes.
A feeble batting effort by Taihape followed,
with Arthur Kauika the only batsman to make
