The West Coast boys’ primary school
cricket team showed plenty of promise
in two warm-up games against Buller at
Game one ended in a draw and in the
second match West Coast finished 163
for 9, and bowled Buller out for 53
In Saturday ’s match, West Coast
made a strong start, with openers Jamie
Garland and Leyton Foster having the
better of the Buller bowling attack.
Garland played some expansive shots
before being caught out for 43. Ryan
Sheehan blasted 42 before he holed out
looking to increase the run rate.
West Coast batted out their allotted
time, finishing at 155 for 5.
The Buller innings got off to a shaky
start, with Kalin Nieper striking in the
first over with a yorker that cleaned
up Zinny Halsall for a duck. Matthew
Robbins created havoc from the other
end with a good display of swing
bowling, finishing with figures of 2 for
20 off 10 overs. Caleb Reeves with his
off-spin and Foster’s medium pace dried
up the Buller batsmen.
Buller’s Luke Henderson batted well
in the middle order.
West Coast were closing in on a
first innings victory needing just one
more wicket but failed to take their
opportunities and the game ended in a
On Sunday in Westport, West Coast
were sent into bat and got off to a
shaky start, losing Garland for one.
That brought Robbins to the crease and
together with Foster they put on 48 for
the second wicket.
After Foster was dismissed, Robbins
combined with Sheehan to put on 72
for the third wicket. Robbins eventually
went for 33 and Sheehan followed not
long after — one short of his maiden
half-century. After the lunch break the
West Coast bowling attack took control,
with Robbins taking four wickets for
All of the Buller batsmen failed
to make double figures due to a
combination of tight bowling and an
energetic fielding effort from West
Buller’s F Jacundino and T Forsyth
frustrated the Coast bowlers with a
half-hour last wicket stand. Buller was
eventually dismissed for 53, giving West
Coast a first innings victory.
Coach John Whitcombe was pleased
with his side’s performance.
“It’s great to see the boys put in such
a great performance on the field. They
have been training hard and we are
all looking for ward to getting stuck
into some other teams up in Blenheim
at the South Island Primary School
tournament next week,” Whitcombe

New Zealand’s Matt Stechmann
has narrowly edged out fellow New
Zealander Luke O’Connell to claim the
OK Dinghy World Championship in
Australia, taking gold by one point.
A 10th place finish in the final race of
the regatta was just enough to take out
the world title, with O’Connell claiming
the silver after winning a three-way
points tie with defending champion
Roger Blasse (Australia), who had to
settle for third, and New Zealand’s Greg
In all, five New Zealanders finished in
the top 10 with Matt Coutts sixth and
Ben Morrison seventh.
After a week of unco-operative
weather at Black Rock, Australia, the
regatta wrapped up in perfect Port
Phillip conditions. Going into the final
day, the fleet needed two more races to
get in a valid series, so there was audible
relief as the sailors arrived to a sailable
15-20 knots on the bay.
Stechmann said like everyone he was
frustrated by the conditions over the
week, but he did not let it impact on his
“It’s unfortunate that we only sailed
five races, but you just have to deal with
what ’s in front of you. I was aware it was
only going to be five races and I wasn’t
going to let it faze me. I was just taking it
one race at a time and not doing anything
silly. In the past I’ve been known to roll
the dice a little bit too much, and be the
architect of my own demise,” he said.
“I was quite confident that I could
perform good enough today to give
myself a chance. ”

NZ gold, silver in dinghy world champs
Joseph Parker will face another style test
in his next bout rather than meeting a top-
The New Zealand heavyweight boxer will
fight American Jason Pettaway over 10
rounds at the Vodafone Events Centre in
Manukau on Thursday, March 5 as he begins
a busy 2015 campaign where he is likely to
step in the ring five times.
Parker, ranked inside the top 12 of the
WBO and WBA with a 12-0 professional
record, will be forced to move quickly
against the counter-punching Pettaway
(17-1) who is light on his feet and has a
Pettaway is ranked 158th in the world by
respected website Boxrec and has no status
inside the top 15 of any of the four major
Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry said it would
be a challenging night out as Pettaway
posed a different threat to many of Parker’s
previous opponents who liked to come
“He’s a big mover, he’s not going to be the
sort of guy that ’s going to stand in front of
Joe and let Joe tee off on him,” Barry said of
“ We are going to have to corner this guy,
we are going to have to set a fight plan in
place of cutting the ring off and keeping the
pressure on Pettaway.”
Pettaway, 34, has a strong amateur
background and should push Parker in
certain areas before the South Aucklander
moves on to more challenging opponents.
Pettaway ’s only professional loss came via
TKO against retired Russian Magomed
Abdusalamov in March, 2012.
Parker’s handlers want to keep him busy
this year after he produced five wins in as
many bouts in 2014.
“ What we’ve proven is activity has been
helping us in the development of Joe,” Barry
“He’s showing great progress. He’s a very
intelligent, very talented fighter with great
boxing character and what he needs now is
Parker, who will spar with heavyweight
world champion Wladimir Klitschko during
his training camp in Austria in April, will
likely fight again in May, although no
opponent has been confirmed.
For Parker’s third bout of the year, which
has been tentatively planned for Invercargill
in July, Barry said they wanted to step up
against a big-name boxer as they continued
their pursuit of being ranked inside the
world’s top five by the end of the year.
“There’s half a dozen ranked guys who I
would like to test Joe against.”
Parker’s latest outing saw him deliver an
impressive fourth-round knockout victory
over Brazilian Irineu Beato Costa Junior at
last month’s Fight for Life in Hamilton.
“It’s going to be very, very important now
that we build on that last performance,”
Barry said. “I need Joe to look better every
time he fights.”
Despite the hype around the 22-year-old
Parker, Pettaway remained confident of
coming to New Zealand and producing a
“He’s being touted along with Anthony
Joshua as the upcoming superstar of the
division but my trainer and I have studied
his style and identified his flaws which we
will exploit,” Pettaway said.
