SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday May 16 2018 23 Lincoln fend off Proud supporters of Rugby & Netball in Selwyn Shirley comeback to take victory SLIDING IN: Jack Dawson scores for Lincoln, while Jordan Lill also powers his way over the line. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY • By Jacob Page LINCOLN COMBINED have shown plenty of mettle to beat Shirley Boys’ High School 20-18 in their UC Championship rugby game on Saturday. Lincoln scored two tries to none in the first half to lead 12-6 at the break at Lincoln High School. However, they saw that lead evaporate as they trailed midway through the second half. An unconverted try closed the gap to a point with 15min to play. SBHS we’re forced to rue three missed long-range penalty attempts before Lincoln captain Wil Gaulter slotted a 30m penalty with 5min to play to secure the win. Lincoln coach Mike Wilson SPORTS said it was a great confidencebuilder for his team to win a tight game after they had lost 13-12 to Rangiora last week. He said in spite of leading at halftime, he felt his team were not patient with the ball. “I felt like we were trying to score too quickly and weren’t building our attack,” he said. “We just wanted to play with more conviction and be accurate in the second half. I felt we showed plenty of heart to stick at the task, even when we trailed because a lot of teams are just happy to keep it close.” Wilson praised the efforts of loosehead prop Jordan Lill. “I thought in his first start for us he was really great, he worked hard and got our first try,” Wilson said. No 7 Blair Royal also showed the physicality the whole forward pack had been trying to play with in 2018, Wilson said. “He was onto everything, hitting the rucks hard and carrying with good physicality when he had the ball in hand.” Utility back replacement, Caleb McStay, also impressed with his second half contribution. Lincoln will play Aoraki Combined in another home game on Saturday. BIG MOMENT: Wil Gualter, who struck the winning penalty conversion for Lincoln, looks to spread the ball. Close finish expected in Luisetti Seeds competition WITH JUST two rounds remaining in the Luisetti Seeds combined country division one rugby competition, there is still plenty to play for. Waihora’s 28-17 win over Ashburton has moved them just one point behind Saracens in section A. Meanwhile, Prebbleton continued their remarkable season with a 26-17 win over Rakaia to move to the top of section B. In section A, five teams have a realistic chance of claiming the final two top four spots. Just five points separate Ashburton in third and Lincoln in seventh. The top of section B looks set to be decided in the final round at the end of the month. Assuming Springston can account for Hurunui on Saturday, they will head to tabletoppers Prebbleton to decide the top seed heading into the quarter-finals. Results: •Section A: Saracens 36, Southbridge 31; Waihora 28, Ashburton 17; Glenmark 55, Hampstead 15; Ashley 20, Ohoka 20; BDI 50, West Melton 17; Lincoln (bye). •Section B: Southern 26, Darfield 21; Hornby 13, Hurunui 7; Springston 20, Oxford 17; Kaiapoi 26, Prebbleton 26; Rakaia 17, Methven 17; Rolleston (bye). •Standings – Section A: Saracens 35pts, 1; Waihora 34pts, 2; Ashburton 30pts, 3; Southbridge 26pts, 4; Glenmark 25pts, 5; BDI 25pts, 6; Lincoln 25pts, 7; Ohoka 18pts, 8; West Melton 6pts, 9; Ashley 5pts, 10; Hampstead 2pts, 11.
