The Pt Chevalier Pirates are
going from strength to strength
climbing up rugby league's
Appliance Shed Fox Memorial
They showed no sign of letting
up in Saturday's clash against
strong contenders Mangare East
outclassing the South Auckland
side 48-14 in round 12 of the com-
But the day didn't start off well
for the Pirates when halfback
Jeremiah Pai pulled up lame
before kickoff and after struggling
through the opening set decided to
pull the pin and reduce the risk of
Aaron Nootai opened the scor-
ing for Pt Chevalier when he
received a Kyle Bos special after
the nuggety hooker was moved
into the halves due to Pai's injury.
Bos weighted a perfect grubber
that Nootai gathered to score.
Jonathan Carl had no issues
with the kick and after the first 10
minutes the Pirates led the Haw-
Back to back sets allowed
Mangere East to get valuable field
position and Terence Phillips
went close out wide.
But it was not until Atunaisa
Tupou crashed over under the
crossbar that Mangere East had a
chance to celebrate.
The Pirates were down to a two
man bench after Dylan Moses
became the victim of a monstrous
Paul Tuli tackle and was escorted
from the field failing to return.

East with Patrick Sipley making a
cross despite suffering a dislo-
cated shoulder earlier in the half.
The Hawkes managed to get
back in it just before halftime.
Fine Faingaa continued his try
scoring dominance but the Pirates
remained 18-10 up at halftime.
It was a disastrous start to the
second half for the Hawkes when
Sipley crossed not once but twice
in the opening minutes to grab a
hattrick for the game.
Things went from bad to worse
for Mangere East when a Phillips
mistake was picked up by Latu
who managed to get on the score-
sheet. Further injuries to the
Pirates threatened to derail their
run in to the finals when Willy
Sorenson left midway through the
second half with what could be a
season ending injury.
Faingaa grabbed his second for
the day for the Hawkes late in the
second half but it wasn't enough
to close the gap and the Pirates
left the field on a high.
