DUEL: Southbridge’s Isilie Fine wins the battle in the air. Southbridge advance to semi-finals • By Gordon Findlater SOUTHBRIDGE have advanced to the semi-finals of the Combined Country Cup after a hard fought 31-25 win over Waihora on Saturday. They also got revenge on last year’s final which Waihora won 31-24 in June. Southbridge dominated the opening 40 minutes and went into the sheds with a 24-8 advantage, courtesy of two tries from speedy winger Cameron Sheat. Southbridge scored again early in the second half, which extended the lead to 31-8, before Waihora launched a spirited comeback. In the final minutes, Southbridge found themselves holding on to a slim lead and down to 14-men. “The whole team stood up in the last 15 minutes. We were camped in our half with a man in the sin-bin, but the guys showed great character to hold on,” said Southbridge coach Mike Rowe. They now host Lincoln on Saturday in another all-Ellesmere clash, in which they will play for a spot in the grand-final. The two teams met in the opening round of the competition when Southbridge claimed the Murray Cooper Shield. “They’ll be a much-improved team since then. They will have done their homework and they have one of the best forward packs in the competition,” said Rowe. Lincoln were the only quarterfinalists to win on the road when they defeated Glenmark 19-15.
