Last Saturday, in their first match back following the school holiday, St Kents defeated De La Salle 27-0 away. The visitors led 10-0 at halftime with fullback Patrick Herbert scoring all of the points. In the second half, St Kents kicked away with tries to halfback Sam Nock and loose forward Zeke Anderson, while Herbert’s 17- point haul earned him player of the match. St Kents face Mt Albert Grammar away this Saturday. Fight for fourth place THE Howick Hornets remain in the top four of Auckland rugby league’s Appliance Shed Fox Memorial Shield premiership, but only just. Howick were four points ahead of fifth- placed Marist Saints on the standings at the halfway stage of the competition. But the two sides now share fourth place after Marist upset Howick 20-18 at Paparoa Park last Saturday. The victory puts Marist alongside Howick on 18 competition points, behind Pt Chevalier Pirates (28 points), Mt Albert Lions and Papakura Sea Eagles (both 26). n Howick v Northcote, this Saturday at 2.30pm, Paparoa Park. SPORTS BITES HOWICK’S NICK WILSON Times photo Daniel Silverton IVAN AGNEW: The Kiwi track cycling team has overtaken New Zealand’s middle distance runners as the nation’s top medal hopes at the Commonwealth Games. ➤ Page 31 Fencibles show ticker-taka STAYED UPBEAT: Captain Paulo Montino was a beacon of positivity throughout Fencibles’ nine-game winless run and was rewarded with the winning goal against North Force last Saturday. Photo supplied / JLSPhotographs.com By Daniel Silverton aLONG road trip has turned the corner on two months of misery for Fencibles United’s premier men’s football team. Fencibles finally snapped a nine-game winless streak in Lotto NRFL division two with a 1-0 vic- tory over North Force in Whanga- rei on Saturday. Since their last previous win in April, Fencibles have lost seven times and drawn twice, dropping them from first to seventh in the standings. The poor run reached its nadir the week before when Fencibles led 2-0 in the second half against Albany before capitulating to a 2-3 defeat. Head coach Grant Robertson puts the results down to the youth- ful make-up of his team. “It’s probably been to my detri- ment that I’ve picked a lot of young players from within the club, to show there is a visible pathway into the premier team,” Robertson told the Times. “They get into situations where they can’t handle the pressure.” The lengthy bus ride to Kamo Sports Park had been a hapless one for North Force’s opposition in 2014, with the home side com- piling an imposing record of six wins from seven matches at the fortress. However, the change of scenery was a panacea for Fencibles. While the football world is obsessed with the tiki-taka style of play made famous by Barcelona and the Spanish national team, it was good old-fashioned ticker which won the day for Fencibles. “We made our usual silly mis- takes and turned over ball because we’re young,” says Robertson. “But we showed a bit of grit and determination, some ticker. The whole side seemed to be in tune.” The score was locked at 0-0 at halftime and Fencibles’ goal came in the 68th minute to captain Paulo Montino. “We had control in the second half,” says Robertson. “When we went up 1-0, more of that ticker came out in everyone. “We kept attacking and our goal- keeper had very little to do.” The victory may have come too late to keep Fencibles’ hopes of promotion alive, and Robertson in his role as coach. Fencibles are on 21 points, 10 behind Waiuku in third place. The top three sides are automatically promoted to division one, which is Fencibles’ long-time goal. “Mathematically we can still be promoted,” says Robertson. “We have six games to go, and five of them are against teams above us on the ladder.” Meanwhile, Fencibles’ premier women’s team jagged their fourth victory of the season with a 4-2 home win over Western Springs on Sunday. Fencibles led 3-1 at halftime, with Mianna Laing, Charne van der Walt and Sonia Lovemore (2) providing the goals. With five matches remaining, Fencibles are eighth in the 10-team league. This Saturday at 2.45pm, Fen- ■n cibles men v Waiuku, Riverhills Park.
