Winton caps off a great celebration of their centennial when they beat a determined Limehills side. Much to the delight of the big crowd in fine, sunny but cool conditions it was a close encounter, different from other games in the Central Western competition.
It was fitting that the game was hard fought which showed in the low scoring and appropriate as it was very reminiscent of a game played in the earlier days - tough and committment. In the first half, Limehills held most of the possession, and held out the faster Winton backs. Winton whittled that advantage away in the second half and despite their forwards throwing everything at the Limehills pack, trying to burst through their defence, the second half remained scoreless.
The only try of the game was scored by Evan McLellan after a move which also involved Murray Mitchell, and Alan Hamilton. Tim Oughton converted. Stephen Ashworth kicked a penalty goal for Limehills.
CENTRAL PIRATES/RIVERTON: After an even first half Central Pirates romped away and scored six tries to none against a hapless Riverton side. The Central Pirates team hit their hobbles and once they got their eye in on the Riverton try line there was not stopping them, especially by a less fit team. Tony McKenzie the Central Pirate's first five eight scored a try and kicked a further 19 points for his team. Despite the increasing score the Riverton forwards did try their hardest to stem the flow, and actually gave their best display of the season so far. Peter Mitchell in the tight and the speedy No. 8, Rex Spencer in the loose gave as good as they got and were supported by the rest of the forwards. The score was 12-6 at halftime.
CENTRAL PIRATES: - Jim Phair, Forrester Norman, Bill Roxburgh, John Wishart, Wayne McCallum, Tony McKenzie (1) McKenzie (5 Con 3 PG)
RIVERTON: Keith Haslemore (2 PG)
OTAUTAU/WAIAU STAR: Otautau proved too good for the Waiau Star backs at Holt Park with seven of the eight tries scored by the wingers. Waiau Star were their own worst enemies with poor tackling and lack of fitness. A lot of injuries over the previous week has left the team fielding a second string team.
OTAUTAU: Peter Morris (3) Stewart Clark (3) Greig Keen (1) Doug Davidson (1 Con) Alan Dickson (6 Con 1PG)
WAIAU STAR: D. Gilkison (1)
WRIGHTS BUSH/DRUMMOND Wrights Bush continued on its winning form and racked up its largest score of the season.
with a 31-4 win over Drummond. The home team had little to offer to try and stop the Wrights Bush rampage.
WRIGHTS BUSH: Bruce Winter (2) Leicester Rutledge, Jim Sinclair, John McNaughton, Ian Clarke (1 DG) Alister White (4 Con)
DRUMMOND: Don Wilson (1 )
