Hockey turf gets a revamp Down: North Harbour hockey sand turf being laid in 1989. Up: North Harbour hockey turf being removed during its 2010 revamp. By FELICITY REID The fulltime whistle has blown on New Zealand's oldest operational syn- thetic hockey turf. After 22 years North Harbour Hockey's No 4 turf in Albany's Rose- dale Park is getting a revamp. Removal of the orig- inal sand-based turf began on November 1 to be replaced by a newer sand surface known as a TigerTurf WETT dressed field which will be completed by late- December. North Harbour Hockey chief executive Darrell Simpson says desper- ation and sheer necess- ity'' has led to the upgrade. It is a good all- purpose, all-weather sur- face,'' which Simpson says is cheaper and easier to maintain than a water-based turf. Simpson believes the new surface will offer North Harbour Hockey greater flexibility. A major plus for us is being able to schedule anything on there, from premier reserves down as well as club trainings. It will free up the water turf mid-week.'' Due to the deteriorat- ing condition of the turf which led to safety con- cerns during adult games, for the past three seasons the association has limited play on it to secondary school and junior competitions and some lower grade matches. These days the turf is known as the number four ground but in 1989 it was the first turf to be installed in the area. Silver Commonwealth Games medallist and North Harbour hockey stalwart Dave Kosoof has a few fond memories of the number four turf. I remember scoring my first goal for the North Harbour senior side on the old sand turf. I'll always remember it because it was from a penalty corner flick, Shane McLeod was our stick stopper and he was North Harbour's star then and my idol at the time so felt pretty good,'' Kosoof says. He'll also remember the high fence hoardings. They were high enough so that my mum could only just get her head over the fence to yell support for me.'' Birkenhead put on dismal display Sensational start: Takapuna's 16-year-old Jordan Sussex, right, appeals and successfully takes a wicket with his first ball bowled in men's premier cricket. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK CLUB CRICKET Birkenhead City put on a dismal display during the weekend's Jeff Crowe Cup double-headers. Twice in two days Bir- kenhead were bundled out for a paltry score and consigned to a heavy defeat. Dismissed by Papa- toetoe for 107 on Sat- urday, the premier com- petition newcomers suffered a nine-wicket loss as the home side made light work of chasing the total. On Sunday it was near neighbours Takapuna doing the damage, as spinner Jason Donnelly grabbed a five-wicket haul (5-10) to send Bir- kenhead tumbling out for just 70. The total proved no problem for Takapuna, who recorded an eight- wicket win with Blake Douglas smashing 55 of the 71 runs scored. On Saturday Taka- puna had gone down by 23 runs to Suburbs New Lynn in a battle of two of the early season form sides. Suburbs posted a tally of 239-8 but with con- tributions from Craig Cachopa (76), Douglas (41) and Elliott Herd (40), Takapuna were always in with a chance. It was a winning week- end for North Shore who made it two from two with victories over Wai- takere City and Grafton United. Hamish Baker (57) led the charge for Shore against Waitakere, and he was joined by Craig McGuigan (40) and Daniel Burney (30) in posting 261-9. Burney then followed up his efforts with the bat to grab 3-27 with the ball in the 23-run win. At Devonport Domain on Sunday Shore downed Grafton in a close affair. The fact that Shore made it to 176 was down to three batsmen with Beaumont Schoeman (54), Baker (38) and Josh Tasman-Jones (37) pro- viding 75 percent of the runs. Grafton's reply saw only Nigel Collins get past 30 and Schoeman (3-41) led the attack for the home side to secure their third win of the season. East Coast Bays claimed their fourth vic- tory of the season on Saturday and in the pro- cess broke Parnell's unbeaten start to the year. Bays couldn't continue their top form against Ellerslie on Sunday. Ellerslie were dis- missed for 168 before their quick bowler Cha- mal Wajayarupa (5-27) helped dismiss Bays before they even reached three figures. Tough win for Breakers Academy The Breakers Academy side defeated Waitakere 72-58 in the final of the Supercity Competition at North Shore Events Cen- tre. This was a fitting result for captain Sam King and fellow seniors Morgan Nathan, Inga Solofuti and Josh Blox- ham who all graduated from the academy after the game. Both teams started the final hesitantly with the score in single digits through the first six minutes before Bloxham nailed a couple of base- line jumpers to give the Breakers a 19-14 lead at quarter-time. This advantage was quickly erased by Waita- kere in the second period as Matt Aird poured in 13 points including three three-point shots and Houston O'Riley demon- strated his ability to score in traffic. Brad Anderson kept the Breakers in touch with 10 points in the quarter but Waitakere led 38-34 at halftime. Waitakere still led 46-45 midway through the third quarter but after that their offence ground to a halt and the Breakers took control. Waitakere could not break down the 1-3-1 zone defence thrown at them by academy coach Judd Flavell and scored just two more points in the period. Their cause was not helped when they picked up a coach technical foul. Bloxham slotted home the resulting free throws and the Breakers took a crucial 55-48 advantage into the final period. Waitakere's shooting woes continued in the fourth period, managing just 10 points. The Breakers, led by Nick Burrows with an impressive 16 rebounds and Nathan with nine rebounds, were able to control their own boards and point guard Blox- ham controlled the tempo down the stretch to ease the Breakers to a hard-fought 72-58 win. Bloxham had a game high 21 points with Brad Anderson also in double figures with 17 points. Final score: Breakers Academy 72 (Josh Blox- ham 21, Brad Anderson 17, Sam King 8, Reuban Te Rangi 8) Waitakere 58 (Matt Aird 18, Patrich Bolstad 14, Houston O'Riley 13).
