SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday August 15 2018 21 SPORTS INSPIRATION: Richard Mills leads the Waihora team onto the field for the Coleman Shield final which was his 200th game. PHOTO: KAREN CASEY • By Jacob Page WAIHORA‘S dream run this year has culminated in them winning the Coleman Shield Ellesmere rugby competition after beating Darfield 20-10 on Saturday. The win gave the Magpies both the Combined Country competition trophy and the Coleman Shield – the first time they have achieved the double. The result also means Darfield will have to wait another year to try to claim their first Coleman Shield after being beaten in the last two finals. Waihora have matched Southbridge, which did the double last year. Previous to that the feat was achieved by Lincoln in 2011. Darfield, motivated by home ground advantage, took a 3-0 lead into half-time but would have wanted more. Proud supporters of Rugby & Netball in Selwyn Waihora cap off dream season with Coleman Shield win The Alex Parker penalty was not enough of an advantage for the hosts after they played the first half with the wind at their backs. Two Harry Kirk penalties seized the lead for Waihora and, with the wind now working in their favour, attacking play became easier to construct. A trick-play line-out move, which saw Matt Stone catch the ball and stroll through a gap, gave the visitors breathing room on the scoreboard but it was short lived. Darfield’s No 10 Scott Mitchell replied with a try under the posts to close the gap to 13-10 with 20min to play. Stone was the hero again as he took an intercept from a Darfield lineout near half way. The hard-running lock ran as far as he could before handing the ball off to Joe Robbins who scored the decisive try of the final. It proved to be a great way to acknowledge Richard Mills in his 200th game for Waihora, it was also the best way to send veteran Gareth Pietzner into retirement after 280 games. Waihora coach Joff Mooar praised his team’s defence in the first half. “To turn with the wind and only be down three points was great,” he said. “We felt it could have been a 12 to 15-point wind. We set some goals before the start of the season and to have achieved every single one is something this team can be proud of,” he said. In other Ellesmere rugby finals, Banks Peninsula won the division two final 24-10 over Southbridge- Leeston, Hornby triumphed 48-20 against Burnham Dunsandel- Irwell in the division three decider, Waihora beat Springston 25-13 in the colts final and Prebbleton won the under-18 final 49-8 over Plains United. •More sport, page 24-25 CHARGING: Lock Matthew Stone on the charge.
