The bowlers fell back into old habits, allowing Wellington College's second XI to chase down their 174 target with only five wickets down. Coach Tim Sander said the game had started well, with open- ing bat Liam Hardie-Sander scor- ing 80, and top order batsman Sean Perry getting 38. The team ended up scoring 173 runs, and Sander said it was disappointing that the batsmen around Liam and Sean could not score more runs. Liam had something to prove I think, because he had a few bad scores in a row and wanted to prove he was better than that. Sean batted well. They were the only ones though that got amongst the runs.'' Defending a modest total, San- der said the only bowler to stand up was Ryan Franks, who bowled his 10 overs at a miserly rate for one wicket. Otherwise everyone seemed a bit flat and a little over cricket,'' Sander said. The loss gave Paraparaumu no chance of making Premier 1 for next season, and although it was the team's goal, Sander said he is happy for his young side to con- tinue in Premier 2. College cricket resumes in early February. Women come out fighting By BEN STRANG Kapiti has knocked over the top side in Wellington's Premier 2 women's softball competition, easing home after firing out to an 8-0 first innings lead on Saturday. Team manager Kyla Huff said the team started with a bang at Te Atiawa Park, scoring eight unanswered runs in the first innings against Marist to set up a 12-8 vic- tory. Marist, who are top of the Premier 2 grade, were unbeaten until Saturday, and were only beaten once in the 2010-11 season, during their final match for promotion, she said. We are one of four teams that are really battling for a place at the top of the table now,'' Huff said. We've got [Poneke-Kilbirnie] this weekend, and I think they are tied for second with us, so that should be a good game.'' Huff said Kapiti were looking for a big result against Marist following two losses, and got it on the back of a strong first innings batting per- formance. Batter after batter placed safe hits through the Marist field to pile on the runs, which Huff believes left Marist a little surprised'' for the rest of the match. I don't think they expected us to come out firing like that.'' Huff said Kapiti closed out Marist with good defensive play. Now she believes the team need to work on maintaining their good form heading into the big game with P-K at Hataitai Park. The mental side of the game also needs working on, the team not coping when they get behind, she said. We can't let ourselves drop. We know we are good when we have a lead but we need to make sure if we are behind we rise up and fight back.'' Saturday is Kapiti's final game for 2011. The league resumes in mid- January. Touch reps: Paraparaumu School students Alyciah Bain-Tipuna, Caleb Mareikura-Martin, William Jacques and Hunter Graham have made Horowhenua-Kapiti representative touch teams. Mother Tahi Tipuna said the school was extremely proud of the children, who will be taking part in the national touch tournament in Palmerston North on December 17 and 18. Alyciah, William and Hunter will compete for Horowhenua- Kapiti in the under-11 mixed teams, while Caleb is playing in the under-15 boys' side.
