Thames win Senior B Qualifying Round on countback

posted May 25, 2011, 3:27 PM by Thames Valley Rugby Football Union Inc
Thames victory in Senior B over Hauraki North saw them win the Elders Trophy over Coromandel on countback. Hauraki North scored first with a penalty, but it was Thames that got 3 unanswered tries by Jarred McDowell to seal the victory
20 - 10. Other results in this division went the way as expected.
Senior A saw an upset with Te Aroha Cobras holding on over Waihi 19 - 12. This now sees only 5 points between fourth placed Waihi on 11 and bottom of the table Cobras on 6.
This weeks A draw promises some great rugby with Paeroa West, second, travelling to Tairua (first), and Whangamata (firth) heading to Hauraki North (third). Some upset results here could see a tightening up of the table.
In Senior B, Coromandel tackle Thames for bragging rights after they finished locked together on 38 points after round 1.
