The final score masked some of the Bears' worst stats of the season, coach Terry Poko said, as the players let their emotions get the best of them under a barrage of sledging. Out of 23 sets of six the Bears only completed three, and conceded 16 penalties during the match, Poko said. We let the crowd get to us, you could say -- it's a very vocal crowd in Wainui. The guys on the opposition bench were giving the guys a hard time and they reacted to that.'' With 20 minutes to play the Bears were reduced to 12 men after hooker Al Wharakura was sent off, following a melee. The send-off was a blow for the team as Wharakura was playing an awesome game'' and had already scored a pair of tries, Poko said. That's the game though. When those things happen you just take it on the chin and let the ref decide the game. But the emotions were just high.'' Wharakura faces a potential judicial hearing following the incident, with the team awaiting official confirmation this week, Poko said. Poko said he talked to his wingers after the game and was told that the crowd had been horrendous''. They had a decent-sized crowd, but every time you play at Wainui they're very vocal. So every time there's a big tackle the whole stadium goes berserk.'' Compounding the problems for the Bears was an uncharacteristically slow start to the game. Normally we fire straight away but for some reason we were quite slow off the mark and it was 18-10 [to Wainuiomata] at half time.'' Despite the dismal team stats, Poko picked out second rower Frank McConkey for praise following a good defens- ive effort in an otherwise strong all-round game. The players have a week to cool off and prepare for another tough away game against competition newcomers the Trentham Titans on Saturday. Kapiti had a easy win over the Titans in a preseason match but the Trentham team is now second place in the competition. The Bears will be looking to push up from their fifth place, with kick-off at Davis Field at 1pm. Paraparaumu decisively bag semifinal placing By BEN STRANG On top: Paraparaumu's Sonny McBride boots ahead in his team's decisive victory over Toa. Paraparaumu have secured a spot in the semifinals of the Horowhenua- Kapiti premier rugby competition after a lopsided victory over Toa at Te Atiawa Park on Saturday. Paraparaumu scored 12 tries in the 68-7 win, clocking up 46 unanswered points in the second half alone. At halftime we had been better, but after that our backs just blew them away,'' said coach Michael Hunter. [Toa] weren't at their best, and I think they had some issues with numbers because they had no reserves to bring on.'' Captain Ryan Shelford, Wory Atkins, Sonny McBride and Alex Inglis all scored tries for Paraparaumu in the first half, with the visitors scoring eight tries in the final 40 to blow Toa away. Fullback and man of the match Richard Buffey ran in two tries in the entertaining second half, while winger Aaron Richardson scored a hat-trick. Inglis, Peter Woodward and Joe Cudby also added to the scoresheet. Hunter said the game started with a few handling errors, but the back line slowly got into their work in perfect playing conditions. Toa were spent after the first half allowing Paraparaumu to spread the ball wide and carve the home side apart, he said. One thing that was a little disappointing was our kicking of conversions, but that had been really good the rest of the season.'' Only four of the 12 tries were converted, two by McBride, one by Inglis and one by Nick Cooper. In other matches, Levin Athletic and Rahui kept the pressure on Parapara- umu at the top of the table, defeating Shannon 41-10 and Foxton 55-22, respectively. Athletic and Rahui have a chance to take the lead this Saturday, with Paraparaumu having the bye. Athletic host Toa, Rahui host Waikanae, while Shannon travels to Foxton.
