Only bragging rights at stake in final round


Nothing is riding on the last round of games in the Netball Wairarapa Holmes Construction Premier One competition before the school holiday break.

With the make-up of the top four and bottom four already decided, only pride is at stake in tonight’s games at the Trust House Wairarapa Netball Centre.

The closest should be between the top four sides, Harcourts and Jo Kelly and Co Carterton Maroon. Both have suffered two losses, but Harcourts go in with a two-point advantage, having picked up losing bonus points for finishing within five goals of Celtic United and Wairarapa College A.

In the other games, Celtic should be too good for Opaki Vixens, and Waicol are favoured to take bragging rights in the college clash with St Matthew’s.

Jo Kelly and Co Carterton Rebels are guaranteed their second win, courtesy of a default by Tuhirangi White.


Mud, mud and more mud was the story of the sixth race of the ACM Masterton Harriers’ 2023 cross-country series at Rewanui Forest Park last Sunday.

Malcolm MacDonald was the best of those who did the full 8km coming home in 46 minutes 53 seconds, with Brent Register second and Michael Duthie third.

Andrew Hayes won the 6km race in 30min 27sec ahead of Corey Miller and Chris van Gerven. Mackenzie Murray was the first woman in 49min 37sec.

Brooke Miller was well clear of the 4km field in a time of 21min 52sec followed by Justin Miller and Lexus Hunter.

James Hayes won the 2km race in 13min 30sec.

The next race in the series, which doubles as the club cross-country championships, will be held at Whangaehu on Sunday, July 9.
