SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday May 23 2017 13 SPORTS STRONG RUN: Thomas Simmers fends off the opposition. • By Gordon Findlater WAIHORA ARE still alive in their defence of the Combined Country Cup after sneaking into the play-offs with a final round-robin match win over Saracens 20-16. The match at Tai Tapu Domain served as a winner take all playoff berth. Coming into the game Waihora were in fifth place behind Saracens, which occupied the final play-off spot in section 1. “It was like a finals footy game and it brought out the best in the guys,” said Waihora coach Joff Moore. The home team held a 10-6 lead at half-time and were never given much room to breathe by Saracens which were also desperate to book a BATTLE: Waihora’s Richard Mills pushes off the tackle of Josh Maynard spot in this weekend’s quarter-final. “The last five minutes was tense, they had a lot of the ball but our defence was able to force errors,” said Moore. Waihora will now travel to their nemesis club Southbridge on Saturday in a rematch of last year’s final. “They’ve gone through the competition unbeaten and it will be tough, but they’re in the finals now and it all starts again,” said Moore.

As a result we have gone ahead and remedied the issue.” New sound ceiling baffles have been installed which have made a difference in reducing the noise for all those who go there to enjoy a meal, have a coffee or meet up with friends for a drink. This is just in time, as the Silver Dollar started its quiz nights last week which saw teams take part in the Believe It or Not quiz – now a weekly feature of the bar and restaurant. The Silver Dollar opened earlier this year after owners Murray and Bernie Taylor spent two years planning and developing the establishment. One thing is clear – the owners really listen to their customers. “We are really proud of this place and we want the people of Selwyn to be proud of it too, so we hope they continue to let us know of the things they love about it and the things that need improving. After all we want this to be the place where our locals and visitors come and relax and really enjoy themselves.” Visit the website For Bookings Ph 03 3470386 or book at
