Photo: SHANE WENZLICK By FELICITY REID Victory for the Young All Whites in the final of the Oceania Football Confederation under-17 Championship at North Harbour Stadium to- morrow will book them a place at this year's FIFA Under-17 World Cup to be held in Mexico. The New Zealand side includes Bill Tuiloma from Bir- kenhead United, Rhys Jordan from Forrest Hill Milford AFC and Nathan Buswell from East Coast Bays AFC and will meet Tahiti in the final which kicks off at 4pm. Coach Steve Cain is pleased with his side's undefeated run through group A in the 10-team tournament. The aim was to get to the final and we've done that comfortably,'' he says. We've still got a lot left in us and we'll show that in the final.'' Cain is wary of the threat posed by Tahiti and thinks his squad will have to be at their best to prevent an upset. We expect a very hard game from them,'' he says. We know that we will really have to raise our game because Tahiti are a lot stronger than anyone we've played so far.'' In 2009 New Zealand posted wins over Tahiti, New Caledo- nia and Vanuatu to head to the knockout stages of the world cup in Nigeria. Experts talk about alcohol and sport By FELICITY REID The long-standing rel- ationship between sport and alcohol will again be under the microscope during a conference at Massey University's Albany campus next month. Representatives from social sciences, public health, liquor enforcement, local government, injury prevention and busi- ness will discuss the ways alcohol and sport interact. Massey school of sport and exercise head associate pro- fessor Steve Stannard says the relationship between alcohol and sport is intricate. While alcohol con- sumption can have a detrimental effect on performance and re- covery there are also some societal issues,'' he says. The role that the alcohol industry plays in promoting, funding and supporting sports- people and sporting clubs is also a complex issue. The question that needs to be asked is where the balance lies between a healthy, functioning sports environment and the role of alcohol con- sumption and spon- sorship. We hope to bring together a panel of speakers that can investigate if we can find the balance in the relationship.'' North Shore swim- mer Daniel Bell is one high profile sportsman who has made headlines for his involvement in alcohol-related incidents at the 2008 Olympics, 2009 world championships and 2010 Commonwealth Games. Last year the 20-year-old silver medallist was sent home from the Delhi games for breaking Swimming New Zealand's zero- tolerance alcohol pol- icy.Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zea- land chief executive Gerard Vaughan is looking forward to the discussion and debate. There are chall- enges in this area that need to be worked through, and there are also a lot of really good things happening.'' The conference runs from February 9 to 11.

Bays bowlers demolish Roskill CLUB CRICKET East Coast Bays collected all the spoils in their Hedley Howarth Trophy match-up with Eden Roskill at Windsor Park after an extraordinary second innings collapse by the visitors. The day began with an intriguing battle for first innings points with the Bays' final pair grinding out the final few runs to get them past the target of 148 set by Eden Ros- kill the previous weekend. What followed was a demo- lition job by Bays bowlers as Stu Lipshaw (4-14) and Matt Mimmack (3-0) cut a swathe through the Roskill line-up to dismiss them for a measly 68. Bays then had little trouble putting on the required runs for victory to grab all the points with an outright win by eight wickets. Player coach Richard Jones helped ensure that North Shore gave away nothing more than first innings points on day two of their match with Suburbs New Lynn. The former Auckland Aces player stroked 74 and with an unbeaten 44 from Alex Mac- Duff, steered the home side to 165-4, ruling out any chance of an outright defeat. Earlier in the day Suburbs continued on from 103-3 to pick up first innings points thanks to some lower order hitting from Sachin Variath (32) and despite the efforts of Ben Stewart (3-45) and Michael Stevenson (3-55). Few would have picked an outright victory to Papatoetoe in their clash with Takapuna at the start of day two. But a friendly declaration and some excellent second innings batting saw Papatoetoe sneak home to grab the points. Takapuna did the important stuff early by reducing Papa- toetoe to 120-8 and securing first innings points. From there it was a case of a couple of quick declarations and the run chase was on. Getting almost 290 was a tough ask but Papatoetoe had contributions throughout the order. In the minor championship Birkenhead City upped their performance on the second day of competition but it wasn't enough to stop Parnell securing their second outright win of the season. Starting the day 158 behind and with only eight wickets in hand Birkenhead made it diffi- cult for Parnell as they battled their way to 288 with signifi- cant contributions from Terry Crabb (85) and Phil Treanor. Parnell's openers negotiated their way to the 80 runs required to give Parnell maxi- mum points and a huge 21 point lead at the top of the table. Sherwood fired up for extreme Nitro Circus For one night only New Zealand freestyle motocross superstar Levi Sherwood will join FMX legend Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus crew at North Har- bour Stadium. The February 5 event will be 18-year-old Sherwood's debut Nitro Circus live performance. Sherwood has shot to global fame in recent years after his huge success on the inter- national competition circuit, which includes a silver medal in FMX at last year's X Games and three Red Bull X Fighters World Tour wins. I am so pumped about riding with the Nitro Circus crew and to make my debut with them in front of all of my New Zealand fans is going to be amazing.'' Tickets to the first ever Nitro Circus Live NZ tour went on sale in early November and it has been the fastest selling action sports tour in the country, beating sales to Crusty Demons events run by the same promoters, Global Action Sports, by more than 400 percent in its first week. Joining Pastrana and Sher- wood will be the entire Nitro Circus crew from the hit MTV show including Jolene Van Vugt, Erik Roner, Jim De Champ, Special Greg, Street- bike Tommy and Dusty Wygle. Fans can expect to see kids trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes, razor scooters and much more launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp.
