24 Tuesday September 12 2017 Latest Christchurch news at TITLE: Lincoln A celebrate their fifth straight title and remain unbeaten over the last three seasons. Fifth title for invincible Lincoln • By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN PROVED unbeatable for a third straight season when they claimed the Selwyn Netball Centre premier title with a 57-47 win over Broadfield on Saturday. It was Lincoln’s fifth straight title and continued an unbeaten run for the team which stretches back to start of the 2015 season. “We do have quite the run going on and we’d like it to continue,” said Lincoln player/coach Vanessa Robinson. Saturday’s final against Broadfield was no walk in the park with injuries requiring two players from the Lincoln B team to step into the squad for the biggest match of the season. Although the team is more than used to playing in the final, there were still plenty of early nerves. “It was a really tough battle. [Broadfield] came out firing and it took us about 15min to settle into the game,” said Robinson. As the game progressed, Lincoln seized control. Robinson highlighted the play of centre Char Porima, and goal-shooter Hannah Wilson, who made 41 of her 46 shot attempts. “For a final that’s pretty outstanding,” said Robinson. The team are very keen to continue the unbeaten run in 2018 but, for now, they will enjoy celebrating another title. “We’re very good at celebrating. We hit Lincoln and then we hit my place. The boys were watching the rugby and the girls were partying,” said Robinson. Finals results: Premier one: Lincoln 57, Broadfield 47. Premier two: Burnham 53, Lincoln B 37. Premier three: Templeton 61, Lincoln C 45. Year 7/8: Halswell RL 32, Rolleston 26 Lincoln make quarter-finals in national football tournament • By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN HIGH School achieved their best ever result at the national secondary school football tournament, finishing sixth in Taupo last week. The second day of the weeklong tournament was one to remember not just for Lincoln, but for central defender-comestriker Jacob Anderson. Starting the day, Lincoln needed a victory in their final pool game against Tauranga Boys’ College to qualify for the round of 16. Tied at two-all with just minutes remaining, Lincoln were awarded an indirect free kick which was slotted home by Anderson. The 18-year-old was then the hero again just hours later when he scored another 90th-minute winner, which saw his side defeat Otago Boys’ High School 2-1 in the round of 16. Anderson has played in the central defence for Lincoln most of the season but was at striker throughout the tournament, a move that ended up paying dividends. Lincoln were defeated by tournament runners-up Auckland’s Sacred Heart College in the quarter-final 0-4, before recording a 2-1 win over Wellington’s St Patrick’s College and a 0-2 loss to Saint Kentigern College from Auckland, to finish the 32-strong tournament in sixth. On day one, Lincoln started their first two pool games with a 2-1 win over Auckland’s St Peter’s College before going down 1-2 to St Patrick’s College. It was also a successful week for the girls first XI who finished runners-up at the SPORTS SELWYN TIMES CLUTCH: Jacob Anderson scored two 90th-minute winners in the same day to help Lincoln advance to the quarter-finals.
