Wairarapa United were licking their wounds after being beaten 4-2 by unfancied Tawa on Saturday, ending a winning streak that had stretched to five games. The result sees them relinquish their top standing in the competition and now sit behind Miramar Rangers on goal difference. But player-coach Adam Cowan says they will be taking whatever positives they can out of the match. It is definitely going to be a wakeup call for us,'' Cowan says. If we want to win the league then we are going to have to win games like that. And we can't have poor performances like that if we want to be successful.'' Complacency may well have been a factor in Wairarapa United's poor performance, Cowan says. We didn't work as hard as we have been going into the match and I guess that kind of showed out on the field. We were poor in the first half and only got worse in the second.'' But take nothing away from Tawa, Cowan says. They scored some good goals and once they got even they were on a roll.'' A Campbell Banks double in the first half saw Wairarapa United lead 2-1 at the break, but three unanswered goals in the second spell secured a convincing victory for the home team. Wairarapa United takes a break from the Central League this weekend, instead playing a Chatham Cup elimination match against Wainuiomata. The match, against the lowly ranked Capital Premier One side, is a classic David and Goliath clash, but Cowan says after last week's upset his side will be taking nothing for granted. Wairarapa United's next Central League match is the fol- lowing week (Sunday, May 22) against league leaders Mira- mar in Masterton. Storming East Coast on course for Kapene Cup Unstoppable: East Coast half back Matt O'Connor looks to shake off the tackle during the Wairarapa-Bush senior-A match at Trust House Memorial Park on Saturday. East Coast won 63-14. East Coast flexed their muscle in the latest round of Wairarapa-Bush senior-A club rugby and look on course to secure the Kapene Cup. Too big and too strong, the Coas- ters ran in 10 tries in their 63-14 hammering of Masterton Red Star at Trust House Memorial Park on Saturday. Although two points behind leaders Pioneer, East Coast -- unbeaten this season -- have a game in hand. The wet slippery conditions couldn't prevent them from playing an expansive style of rugby which was pleasing to the eye and very pro- ductive on the scoreboard. Compared with the rest of the com- petition, East Coast appears to have few weaknesses. Powerful scrummagers, they are lacking neither in height nor mobility across the whole forward pack. The Coasters also boast one of the most exciting back lines in the com- petition, starting from young half- back Matt O'Connor right through to fullback Nic Olson. Skipper Sam Mitchell, playing in the midfield, scored a hat-trick of tries with centre Jesse McGilvary bagging two. In other matches, Martinborough fullback Greg Dennes finished with a match tally of 19 points as his side beat neighbours Greytown 34-15. Dennes scored a try and kicked four conversions and two penalties. Carterton were made to work hard for their win over Featherston get- ting home by 15-3. Levi Volavolai scored the only try of the match. On Friday, Gladstone took maxi- mum points beating Eketahuna 29-13. Pioneer and Marist had the bye.
