In round four premier clash at Victoria Park, the Darren
Piri-coached Panthers defeated Aitutaki Sharks 58-24.
Piri said the match was “pretty close” in the opening spell
before his side ran away with the win in the second half.
“It’s good to win again, Aitutaki played well but we managed
to get our set play right and win in the end.”
This is Sharks’ second loss in the competition after going
down to Avatiu Eels in the opening round of the weekly 13s competition.
Today, the Eels will host defending champions Ngatangiia
Matavera Sea Eagles at The Swamp.
The Eels are undefeated from three matches so far after
beating the Sharks, Titikaveka Bulldogs (default win) and Arorangi Bears while
the Sea Eagles are yet to register a win in the competition.
The Sea Eagles will be hoping to bounce back from the
embarrassing 8-84 loss to the Panthers last week.
