Playing in wet conditions at Waikanae's Jim Cooke Park, the Palmerston North side outmuscled Waikanae and peppered their goal throughout the 3-2 win. They were a lot more physi- cal than we are used to in the Wellington league,'' coach Steve Hearn said. Wanderers came out of the blocks fast, scoring inside 10 minutes, but Waikanae hit back with an equalising goal to Jo Sullivan minutes later. Waikanae keeper Sasha Haskell was at her best, making many saves to keep her team in the match. Wanderers broke through minutes before halftime, and Hearn said he thought his team would be good enough to come back and win the match. However, Waikanae conceded again shortly after halftime to trail 1-3, and although Sophie Abbott closed the gap with a calm penalty, Waikanae could not find the equaliser. In the dying seconds they came close, with a shot grazing the outside of the bar. Hearn said the team have bigger fish to fry'' in the Wel- lington women's premier league. Waikanae are joint top with Stop Out in the league with half the season played, and are seeking top spot and a pro- motion to the Central League. We have won five, drawn two, and lost one in the cup, so it has been a really good season so far.'' They face University this Sunday at Kelburn, who can knock any team over on their day,'' and Hearn said it is the time of the season where all teams begin to improve. It is important to start fast out of the blocks like we did, because as the season goes on all the teams start to improve. It won't be as easy in the sec- ond half but we are looking for seven wins. Whether the girls can do that or not is up to them.'' Waikanae men climb Capital 2 table Waikanae's top men's side had a good win on Saturday against Seatoun at Jim Cooke Park, dominating possession and restricting the visitors to long shots. The 2-1 scoreline did not reflect how Waikanae played in the Capital 2 match, with midfielders Shane Eglinton and Henry Collette wasteful in front of goal in the first period. Collette said defenders Lee Wingate, Matt Belcher, and man of the match Ian Quilter were superb at nullifying the Seatoun threat. He said Quilter in par- ticular dominated the aerial battle, hardly missed a tackle and made some crunching cover- ing challenges'' to steer his team to victory. Striker Kevin Cundy put Waikanae in front after about 30 minutes of the first half, firing between the keeper's legs, before Ryan Kineally made it two shortly after halftime. Seatoun scored a consolation goal with five minutes left in the match, pouncing on Waikanae's only defensive mishap of the game, said Collette. Waikanae are in sixth place on nine points, but can move as high as third-equal with a win from their game in hand. Head to head: Kapiti College's Max Beckman, in gold, leaps for a header against Scots College at Kapiti College on Saturday. Scots College dominated possession and troubled the defence with slick passing. Midfielder Russell Pine scored Kapiti's only goal in the 4-1 loss.
