14 Tuesday July 19 2016 SPORTS SELWYN TIMES North Canterbury seniors beat Ellesmere seniors 39-14 on Saturday. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY Saturday’s annual clashes with North Canterbury were an emotional affair for Ellesmere. The sub-union lost one of their brightest talents last week, with the passing of Utoikamanu Enosi Tuipulotu. Tuipulotu had been in Christchurch Hospital battling a rare form of cancer. The 19-year-old had been having trouble with a racing heart while at rugby training and went for a check up. It was then when the doctor found a cancerous growth on his heart. In 2014, Tuipulotu made the New Zealand Barbarians Area Schools, which played the Chiefs under-18 team. He has also played for the Canterbury Country and Ellesmere representative teams, and was a Lincoln colt player this year. Only a few months ago, most would have expected Tuipulotu to have turned out for the Ellesmere colts on Saturday. Sadly, his involvement was resigned to a minute’s silence held before the game in his memory. Tries to Mark Maitland and Harry Kirk weren’t enough for Ellesmere in the annual Southbridge Shield match against North Canterbury. The opposition ran in four tries on their way to a 39-14 victory. The win was a rare one for North Canterbury who had won the shield just once in the past 10 years going into the weekend. There was more luck for the Ellesmere colts who had a close fought 20-19 win. The Ellesmere under-18s took out the MC Giffery Trophy with a 22-19 win. North Canterbury took out the under-16 Tiny Hill Shield 23-22. TAKE HIM DOWN: Ellesmere’s Sam Kendall is tackled. GO AT THEM: Kerry Gray runs towards the North Canterbury defence. TRY TIME: Mark Maitland scores for Ellesmere. ON-LOOKERS: Harrison Buck (14) Michael Lane (14) and Nathan Quinn (14) watch the match. TOO FAST: Mark Maitland alludes the chase of North Canterbury’s Marcus Taylor.
