SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday July 25 2017 23 Southbridge look to make history • By Gordon Findlater SOUTHBRIDGE have the opportunity to do the clean sweep for the first time in the club’s history after defeating Prebbleton 22-13 on Sunday. The win means that Southbridge retained the Murray Cooper Shield (Ellesmere’s version of the Ranfurly Shield) for the off-season. They also secured the Ellesmere Trophy for the fourth straight year after finishing top at the end of the round-robin. Earlier in the year, Southbridge won the Combined Country Cup and are now just two wins away from claiming the Coleman Shield. “I don’t know if many clubs have (won all four trophies) before. It’s a massive challenge and we’re going to find it very hard. This late in the season, it comes down to a big mental battle,” said Southbridge coach Doug Maginness. Sunday’s game also turned out to be a warm-up for this weekend’s semi-finals. With Southbridge finishing No 1 and Prebbleton No 4, it means they will meet in a semi-final at Southbridge on Saturday. “They look to be a really well trained and drilled unit. They bring a lot of passion, that’s probably the big thing I took from the game,” said Maginness. Sunday’s game against Prebbleton was initially due to be played on Saturday, but was postponed 24 hours due to flooding.

Southbridge answered back before the break, with a try to Isileli Fine and two penalty conversions from Shannon Donald to lead 14-3 at the break. As the pitch began to cut up in the second 40, Southbridge seized the initiative. A Mateo Raturawa converted try extended their lead to 22-13, and from there they came under little threat other than a somewhat controversial disallowed try to Prebbleton late in the game.

If the conditions are better this week, then it should make for a completely different game.” The other Ellesmere division one semi-final will see Darfield host Waihora.
