By JOEL MAXWELL It was a game of missed opportunities for the Kapiti premier 2 men's team at home on Sunday, with its first loss of the round. Coach Paul Tessier said his team lost 3-1 against North- ern United 2 at Mazengarb Park -- a result that spoils Kapiti's four-game unbeaten run. It was a bad trip up for us. We shouldn't really have lost that, in all honesty,'' Tessier said about losing to a team below Kapiti on the compe- tition table. He said none of the players had a great game, in bad playing conditions -- although both teams faced the same challenges with the weather. We didn't adapt well, and I'd probably say that our prep- aration before the game prob- ably wasn't great. We had guys turning up within 15 minutes of the start of the game, delayed in traffic.'' He said Sam Rye at sweeper, and Kieran Sprunt at left-half both had solid games for Kapiti in an other- wise unspectacular team effort. However, Kapiti is still well-placed on the competition table, second behind joint leaders Hutt 2 and Harbour City-Tawa, on 12 points each. Kapiti, on 11, has beaten Hutt and drawn with Harbour City, and now has an easier run into the end of the first round with games against lower placed sides. We should come away with two wins. We've probably got the easier end of the draw for the top three games for the last two games of this round,'' Tessier said. Kapiti remains on target to make the top four, which would see the team play off for promotion to Premier 1 against the bottom-placed team from that competition. We'll go into the semifinals and finals, which the top four play off for anyway, but regardless of whether we fin- ish first or fourth we still get the right to make that chal- lenge,'' Tessier said. The other clubs in the top four already have teams in the P1 competition, which disqualifies them from chal- lenging for another spot, he said. Kapiti play Varsity on Sunday at Mazengarb Park starting at 2.15pm. Forgiveness may come FROM Page 38 So long: Dumped Hurricane Ma'a Nonu bids farewell to his saddened supporters after playing his last game in the black and gold. I hope we hold on to some of the guys [who are wavering]. I know there strengths and weak- nesses and it's something to work on.'' The Crusaders rolled into Wellington, took on a fired-up Hurricanes side and did the business pro- fessionally, even with one eye on the play-offs. It would be nice for Hurricanes fans if their team could display some of that clinical efficiency. If Hammett, formerly a Crusader, can bring that to the Hurricanes, Wellingtonians will for- give him for all his sins, even the sacking of our man Ma'a.
