Savile Cup Day 6 (Finals day)
Rangitikei C was the only team play today in the final of the Riddiford and Levin Cup. The opposition was Wanstead C (Danni Watson, Lucas Simcox, Hugo White and Dan Coddington) a team they have played twice the week before. The game got off to the best start for Rangitikei, scoring in the first minute of play. The score remained the same until the last minute of the second chukka where a mistake off the back line from Rangitikei saw wanstead score the equalizer. Rangitikei scored again in the 3rd and Wanstead answered straight back. With the scores at 2-2 with less than two minutes to play in the final chukka it was anyone's game but Rangitikei was making all the right moves. Eventually it came down to a mistake off Dan Coddington's backline hit in saw Adam Haworth capitalize and hammer the final nail into wanstead's coffin. Rangitikei taking home the silverware!


Savile Cup Day 5
Day 5 started with the continuation of the Rangitikei B vs Mystery Creek game that had been rescheduled from the previous day. With only two chukkas left in the match Rangitikei had to start strong, which they did starting with a quick early goal. Rangitikei finished the 4th chukka 1 up but midway through the 5th the wheels fell of and Mystery Creek found themselves unmarked and they pounced on their opportunities scoring 2 quick goals. With less than a minute on the clock Rangitikei piled on the pressure but the it was too little too late. Rangitikei losing the semi final and eliminated from the tournament.
The A team finally had a win against a KihiKihi team in the last game if their tournament. The horses seemed a little quicker off the mark today and the passes were finally hitting their targets.

Savile Cup Day 4
The hopes and dreams of a high flying Rangitikei D team were crushed today as Auckland D (Sam Wyburn, Dan Worker, Michael McPhearson and Tony Van Der Brink) beat them 4-2. The game was close for the first 3 chukkas with the scores staying at 2-1. It was the fourth chukka in which Auckland did the damage. Rangitikei turn all their focus on attack to get the two goals required to win the game. However missed shots at goal and some unlucky bounces saw Auckland run in two break away goals. A late penalty conversion by myself was not enough. The McKenzie Salvar will be leaving the Rangitikei.
Next up was Rangitikei C vs Wanstead C (Dani Watson, Hugo White, Lucas Simcox and Dan Coddington) unfortunately the before the game could start the rain began to fall the game was abandoned. The result was not required as both teams will meeting the final on Sunday.
Rangitikei B's game against Mystery Creek (Tanya Lavas, James Sheppard, Nick Keyte and Matt Bailey) was running an hour behind schedule but eventually play got under way. However halfway through the first chukka the rain began to fall and scared the pants off Mystery Creek Team. By the end of the second chukka the score was 2-2 and the rain had stopped but the nervous Mystery Creek team decided to leave the field. The game was to be delayed for half an hour to alow the ground to dry. As the sun beamed down the game was called on but Mystery Creek refused to take the field and the game was rescheduled to tomorrow. The Rangitikei team is probably still on the field waiting for the ball to be rolled in.

Savile Cup Day 3
Only the A team playing today against Waimai (Baden Broughton, Tommy Wilson, Craig Wilson and Simon Bennett). Unfortunately a good nights sleep and a bit of quality steak at the Duncan's BBq was not enough to get the team gelling. The plans were in place but once again the execution was lacking. Waimai taking the lead halfway through the first half and never gave it up. Rangitikei went down by 3 goals.

Savile Cup Day 2.
Day 2 started with Rangitikei D (Harri James, David Bird, Jess Andrews and Ben McKelvie) playing Wanstead (Robbie Hunter, Tim Simcox, Andy and Stein) for a place in the semi final of the 0 goal. I opened the scoring with some sweet ball movement and the next 3 chukkas were completely dominated by Rangitikei. Up 6-0 going into the fourth chukka we seemed to fall asleep and allow Robbie Hunter to run in two goals. We managed to hold on and ran out the winners 6-2, booking a place in the semi final on Friday.
Rangitikei C was next up against Auckland C (Mark Rushton, Alex Richardson, Toby Pitts, Justin Watson) Once again I was not able to watch this game and escaped all grooming duties. Luckily Brad Beatson And Adam Haworth were both available to give me an update on their game. Campbell Davis once again had a good game, scoring two good goals as well as Adam Haworth. A well structured game from Tom Lamacraft and strong defensive play from Brad Beatson saw them run out the winners 4-2.
After their heavy loss the day before Rangitikei B needed a big win against Kihikihi (Chloe Kay, Stephen Kay, Paul Kay and Edward Kay) to keep them in the tournament. By the time I arrived mid way through the 3rd chukka scores were even but they did not stay that way for long. Yesterday's team seemed to have disappeared and been replaced by a team that resembled a well oiled machine. Douglas Duncan hit good form making some great carries at speed. Mark Duncan showed great control under pressure and Nathan And Cam Kept the back door firmly shut. Balls that were missed yesterday were hit well and missing goals was no longer a factor. Rangitikei C running out the winners by 5 goals. Keeping them in this tournament... Just.
Tragedy struck this afternoon as Rangitikei A slumped to a disappointing 14-11 loss to Morning star.

Savile Cup Day 1
First up on day 1 Rangitikei B (Douglas Duncan, Mark Duncan, Cam McKelvie and Nathan Schimanski) played Mystery Creek C (Tanya Lavas, Matt Bayley, Nick Keyte and James Sheppard) Unfortunately I did not get to see the game however by all accounts things did not go according to plan. the final score pretty much sums it up. 7-3 in favour of Mystery Creek C. Not a great start for Rangitikei.
Rangitikei C (Brad Beatson, Adam Haworth, Campbell Davis and Tom Lamacraft) was next, up against tough opposition Hololio Farm (Rae poole, Clyde McLean, Henry Jones and Nick Jones) I arrived halfway through this match and Rangitikei was a goal down 4-3. the score remained the same for the next two chukkas with Hololio putting on all the pressure. Rangitikei managed to hold tough and in the last 2 minutes of the game Campbell Davis made a break away and put the ball between the posts, tieing the game 4-4. Rangitikei had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of the match but unfortunately Campbell's last attempt on goal was waved wide. The final result a draw. 4-4.
