Photo: PATRICK HAMILTON Wind aids grim win By WAYNE MARTIN Waimea College snagged a tense home win with just 14 players holding on grimly for a 25-19 bottom-eight win over Shirley Boys' High School on Saturday. Waimea lock Sam Liebezeit was sent off 14 minutes into the second half for standing on the face of Shirley hooker Tuuta Simaile. The red card came just four minutes after Wai- mea second five- eighth Jayden Woolley and Shi- rley flanker Tom Christie were sin-binned for an off-the-ball skirmish, briefly leaving Waimea with just 13 players. They'd done enough damage with the help of a strong first-half wind to secure a handy 20-5 half- time lead following first-half tries to prop Dan McLauchlan, wing Maloni Soane and centre Flet- cher Matthews. And when flanker Bailey Scott scampered over for their bonus-point try just six minutes after the restart, Waimea appeared to cushion themselves for an inevitable wind- assisted Shirley fightback. Having opened the scoring into the wind with an early try to their prop Jordy Sa, Shirley's big tighthead sparked their resurgence when he bul- locked across for his second just moments before referee Paul Gurr showed Liebezeit his red card. Shirley eventually put the wind to better use and continued their revival to reduce Waimea's lead to 25-19. With about 10 minutes still on the clock, Wai- mea produced some heroic defence as Shirley laid seige to Waimea's line. Despite his second-half indiscretion, Liebezeit was a key part of Waimea's first-half defence with some punishing tackling. Ball-carrying props McLauchlan and Hamish Le Comte, lock Sam Madden, No 8 Tim Coman and flanker Dayne Paton were strong up front and No 10 Jake Berth- elsen and Matthews looked incisive.
