PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday May 30 2017 7 The next wave of surfing talent •From page 1 Said Hungerford: “I was really surprised when I won. The conditions were super challenging by the time it got to our final, all the girls surfed really well. “I had a game plan at the start of the heat but, as soon as it started, it went out the window.” The scholastic championships are only for high school students, while the Canterbury championships are open to everyone. It was a successful outing for surfers in the Pegasus Post area with Shirley Boys’ High students Myka Black winning the under-14 boys section and Zack van Eekelen winning the under-16 boys. Black’s performance saw him dominate his section with beautifully crafted cutbacks impressing the judges. • By Gordon Findlater SHIRLEY BOYS’ High will head to Nelson on Friday looking to bounce back from two defeats in the space of five days. The trip to Waimea Combined for Saturday’s sixth round of the UC Championship follows Shirley’s defeat to Marlborough Boys’ College 23-36 in Blenheim last week and a home defeat to Rangiora Josh McCaffery, also from Shirley Boys’ High, was second in the under-16 section and showed his ability by riding a long right-hander under the pier in his final pass. A southerly front kicked up in the mid-morning, giving riders a 2-3m swell to compete on. THE EVENT was a trial for the Canterbury scholastic surf team, with a training squad to be announced in June in preparation for the national scholastic surf championships in Gisborne in October. STUNNING: Myka Black carved it up on his way to victory in the under-14 section of the Canterbury scholastic surf championships at New Brighton Beach.

Trailing by 10 at the break against Rangiora, Shirley came out firing in the second half and recorded two tries before Rangiora sealed the game. “Our first half wasn’t acceptable. We gave away too many penalties,” said Shirley coach Andy Gibson. He highlighted the effort of captain Mcgregor Best.

A good result in Nelson will be a tough ask. Waimea come into the match in hot form after defeating the previously unbeaten Nelson College 38- 22 in their local clash at the weekend. Shirley will have to get used to 1 Wakefield Avenue, Sumner 03 326 5443 or 027 273 5555 between 8.30am and 8.30pm chris@sumnerretreat.co.nz www.sumnerretreat.co.nz riding the bus as their schedule doesn’t get any easier. Next Wednesday, they head south to play a non-UC Championship match against King’s High School in Dunedin. “I actually quite like the trips as a coach. I get a lot more time to run through things with the boys before game day and it helps to build our team culture. It does disrupt the training week but that’s something we have to deal with,” said Gibson. SPORTS Shirley Boys’ High push for third on football table • By Andrew King SHIRLEY BOYS’ High will face a hurt St Andrew’s College side tomorrow night in the Connetics first XI football competition after sitting out round 4’s goal fest with a bye. Thirty-eight goals were scored in six matches on Wednesday, the most in a round so far this season. St Andrew’s were narrowly beaten by Christchurch Boys’ High 1-0 in round 4, pushing them to sixth on the table, just ahead of Shirley. A win tomorrow for Shirley would see them potentially jump into third spot if other results go their way. However, for that to happen, Cashmere and Riccarton would have to draw and Rangiora will need to beat Burnside. The last time the two met, Shirley edged St Andrew’s 4-3. The game will be played at 7.30pm at the Christchurch Football Centre. Connetics first XI table 1. Lincoln 10pts; 2. St Thomas 9pts; 3. Cashmere 7pts; 4. Burnside 7pts; 5. Riccarton 6pts; 6.
