Buller best in schools tourney
Ruby Thomas from John Paul II High School defends against Alyssa Rees
from Greymouth High in their West Coast secondary schools basketball match,
played at the Westland Recreation Centre yesterday. Five girls’ teams contested
the senior school title, with South Westland Area School, Buller High, Westland
High, John Paul II and Grey High all in action in Greymouth, while the boys
battled it out in Westport. The tournament was won by Buller with 12 points,
followed by Westland, John Paul II and Grey all with six points. South Westland
Area School finished fifth.
Pakistan delivered an inspired
all-round performance to rout a
ragged England team by eight
wickets in a one-sided Champions
Trophy semi-final today.
Pakistan bowled and fielded
tightly to restrict the hosts to
a paltry total of 211 all out
and the lowest-ranked team
in the tournament knocked
off the runs in style with a massive
12.5 overs to spare.
It was a major disappointment
for England, who won all three
group matches in their bid to
claim a first global 50-over title
and had beaten Pakistan in 12 of
their last 14 one-day internationals.
They collapsed, however, on a
sluggish pitch from 128 for two in
sunny conditions which normally
favour batsmen and the bowlers
failed to repair the damage as Fakhar
Zaman and Azhar Ali shared a stand
of 118 to lead Pakistan to their target.
“One thing we didn’t do was adapt
to conditions, which I thought
Pakistan did extremely well,”
England captain Eoin Morgan said.
“Full credit to them, they outplayed
us on this wicket. 211 wasn’t a good
score. 250/270 would have been.”
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed
won the toss and England openers
Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow,
replacing the out-of-form Jason Roy,
made a solid enough start.
Hitting boundaries proved
difficult, however, and a clearly
frustrated Hales, on 13, spooned
Rumman Raees to cover with a

good shot placement and quick
running between the wickets
before he pulled seamer Hasan
Ali to Mohammad Hafeez at
deep square leg.
continued to score at about five
runs an over but Root, on 46,
nicked leg-spinner Shadab Khan
to wicketkeeper Sarfraz and
Morgan (33) aimed an expansive
drive at the lively Hasan and gave
Sarfraz another catch to leave
England in trouble at 141 for four.
Jos Buttler (4), Moeen Ali (11) and
Adil Rashid (7) fell quickly and Ben
Stokes, one of the most destructive
batsmen in the world, failed to hit
a boundary in a scratchy 34 as the
Pakistan bowlers dominated.
Fakhar hit Mark Wood for
the first six of the match in the
opening over of Pakistan’s innings and
he and Azhar played some delightful
strokes in a fluent partnership.
Fakhar reached his 50 off 49
balls before being stumped by Buttler
off Rashid for 57 but Azhar and
Babar Azam calmly continued to
milk runs all around the ground as
England’s bowlers ran out of ideas.
Azhar, on 76, dragged a delivery
from Jake Ball on to his stumps
before Babar (38 not out) and Hafeez
(31 not out) guided Pakistan home.
“Credit goes to the bowlers and
the batters who finished it very well,”
“ We adapted to the conditions, we
knew if we restricted them we could
easily chase it down. Every game is a
knockout game and I told my boys to
play their game and not worry about

The highlight of the Hokitika Golf
Club’s week at the Mahinapua links was
a hole-in-one by Brett Martelletti on the
par 3 fourth hole during a bogey round
His shot was good off the tee but his
playing partners, who were looking into
the sun, did not see the ball land and it
was duly found in the hole.
It was Martelletti’s first ace after several
years of playing golf.
Pita Austin took the honours in the
match of the day with plus 4, Brent
Simkin was plus 1 and Jim Cross and
Dean Cummings were both square.
Conditions were ideal for the Sunday
stableford, with John Bourgeois having
the best score of 39 points after a round
of 83-15-68 . Doug King had 37 points,
and Simkin and L eo McIntyre both 36.
In the Wednesday stableford on June 7,
Brian Dow had his best round for some
time with 81-19 -62 for 45 points and
was the easy winner. Doug Yardley was
next with 40 points, followed by John
MacPherson with 39 and Stan Naylor
Twos for the week were scored by
MacPherson (2), Cummings, Naylor,
Bourgeois, King, Simkin and Tony
In the Buller-Westland women’s
pennant finals played at Hokitika over the

Local club golf resumed last weekend,
and the match of the day, a stableford
round, was won by Mike Goodman and
Perth visitor Daniel Blair with 43 points
each. Next to finish were Greg Topp 41
points and Norm McL ennan 40.
The Osbourne Cup was also contested
and Roger Hampton emerged victorious
over Geoff Hands, 1 up. Mike Goodman
struck the birdie hole and Geoff Hands
the twos hole.
This weekend Reefton will host the
inter-province match between Buller-
Westland and Central Canterbury, played
over two days.
The draw for Sunday will start early to
allow the local club competition to be
played in the usual afternoon time slot.
The third and final round of the
Recreation Hotel Dewar’s Cup, played
out on Saturday, finished with a tie
between Gavin Grant and Michael
Both finished on plus 6 and both will
have their names etched on the cup this
In the match of the day, Scholes and
Ken Williams won, both on plus 6, with
Peter Bourke and Kieran Stone further
back in the minor placings.
The club championship finals on
Sunday produced two solid wins and a
nail-biter of a finish.
In the junior final, Paul Watson took an
early lead over Bill Molloy, but Molloy
whittled that back to be only one down
after the morning round.
As the afternoon round progressed,
Molloy took control as Watson
appeared to lose some form and went
down 6 and 5.
The intermediate final was a close
tussle for most of the day, Josh McNeish
getting a small lead over Rob Harrison.
It stayed that way for most of the
match as Harrison shadowed McNeish
around the course. Unfortunately for
Harrison, though, as the afternoon wore
on McNeish’s shadow got that little
bit longer and the game ended with a
5 and 3 win to McNeish.
The seniors provided the tightest finish
of the three matches, with Jeremy Aranga
and Wayne Robbins all square after the
regulation 36 holes. Aranga held a one-
hole advantage coming into the 18th for
the second time but could not match
Robbins’s up and down for par so it was
off back down to the No 1 hole to decide
It took three extra play-off holes before
Robbins’s wayward tee shot gave Aranga
another chance to close out the match,
and after sinking a short par putt on the
third, the Greymouth club got a new
senior champion for 2017, Aranga taking
The rest of the field played an Irish
stableford, with Scholes first home again
on 83 points, followed by Phil McKinnel
79, Kieran Stone 77 and Peter Bourke on
74. Twos for the weekend were scored by
Kevin Thomas and Scholes, who nailed
a pair and claimed the jackpot for his
This weekend the Buller-Westland team
