SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 8 2016 19 Equestrian second in Feilding SPORTS BURNHAM equestrian Sophie Griffith came within a whisker of winning the internationally judged CDI-Y competition held recently as part of the Central Districts Dressage Festival in Feilding. Griffith, 20, and her horse Frangelico F came second in each of the competition’s two classes. Her score of 66.658 per cent in the individual test was just 0.210 per cent below the winning score of 66.868 per cent, set by this year’s Young Dressage Rider of the Year winner Lucarne Dolley, of Kumeu. She again finished second to Dolley in the musical freestyle class, recording a score of 67.300 per cent. Griffith and Frangelico F performed to the music from THE HALSWELL cricket team’s semi-final hopes are looking grim after losing twice in two days over the weekend. Low scores batting first were the problem in both games. The first loss came on Saturday, when Halswell batted first in an away game against New Brighton at Rawhiti Domain. Careless shots and good the movie Finding Nemo. Griffith said she was really pleased with her results. “We went up there and just wanted to be top three,” she said. “To get so close to [Dolley] and to have some really good scores from the international judges, it was a real boost in confidence.” Griffith, who has just finished her second year of an elite equestrian scholarship at Lincoln University, is coached by Brugs Nicholls, also of Burnham. Griffith and Frangelico F will compete in the Canterbury Dressage Championships on December 3 at McLeans Island and will head back to Feilding early next year for the New Zealand Dressage Championships in February. bowling meant Halswell lost wickets regularly and were dismissed for a disappointing 83 runs. Halswell showed more fight in the field with Geoff Barclay taking three early wickets. However, New Brighton held their composure towards the end with their lower order getting them past the total with seven wickets down. On Sunday, Halswell again batted first in another away game; this time against Southern Districts at Beckenham Park. The team found themselves in a similar position to the day before and were bowled out for 75. None of the Halswell batsmen could get in on the bowler-friendly track. Southern Districts showed more application when they had their turn to bat and grafted away at the small total, passing the target for the loss of four wickets. Although Halswell bowled tight they could not get enough early wickets. Leighton Johnston bowled nine overs and took 2-10 while Mike Chatterton had figures of 2-18 from his nine overs. Halswell will host top of the table Heathcote in this Saturday’s must-win game. GOOD RIDING: Sophie Griffith on Frangelico F put in a strong performance to take second in two classes in Feilding.
