United made their debut at Mangere’s Centre Park last weekend, marking it with a memorable 3-1 win over Waitakere United. Waitakere have been the National Youth League’s most successful team since it aligned with clubs in 2007. Auckland United will target a second victory when they face Hawke’s Bay at Centre Park at 3pm on Sunday. Hawke’s Bay started their season with a 1-1 draw against Waikato-Bay of Plenty in Cambridge last weekend. United captain Cameron Emerson will be looking forward to the fixture, given that he played in all eight of Hawke’s Bay games last year. Emerson starred in central midfield against Waitakere and almost set up the opening goal after half an hour when his deflected cross was tipped on to the crossbar by Waitakere keeper Adam McDonald. After an even first 30 minutes, Auckland United finished the first half strongly, with the best chance falling to Altaaf Sahib, his close-range shot from an Alex Waimora cross forcing another good save from McDonald. Sahib made more of his opportunities in the second half, scoring twice as Auckland United effectively won the match with a three-goal blitz in eight minutes around the hour mark. His first came from a free kick from the right-hand edge of the penalty area, with a good run from Waimora across the flight of the ball helping deceive McDonald. Waimora added the second after he picked up possession outside the penalty area, surged past a couple of Waitakere defenders and flicked the ball with the outside of his foot into the bottom corner. Sahib volleyed in to make it 3-0 after the Waitakere defence failed to deal with a high ball played over the top. Antony Cibilich pulled one back for Waitakere a minute later from the penalty spot. Cameron Sinclair gave away the penalty in an otherwise impressive display as part of a defensive unit which included fellow centre back Shuiab Khan, right back George Ladoga and left back Amsheel Singh. Waitakere dominated terri- tory and possession for much of the final 20 minutes but struggled to create clear-cut chances. Auckland United keeper Eamon Goodin dealt ably with the few shots that came his way. The other starters in Auckland United’s historic first match were Scott Booker with Emerson and attackers Shravan Sharma and Soheb Sheik. The substitutes used further underline the multi-cultural nature of the squad: Connor Stoton, Joseph Turagabeci, Ian Sellar and Arthur Yanagisawa. opportunities in the second half, scoring twice as Auckland United effectively won the match with a three-goal blitz in eight minutes around the hour mark.

Tuatahi sets her hopes on the nationals ➤READY FOR ACTION By LAUREN PRIESTLEY Passionate paddler Tuatahi Mihaka has been on the water every day for more than two weeks. The 12-year-old Tamaki Outrigger Canoe Club member is one of a record 2800 participants locking paddles in the 25th ActivePost National Waka Ama Sprint Championships on Lake Karapiro this week. And the Mangere schoolgirl has been ramping up her training since the start of January in the hopes of bringing home a national title. ‘‘One day I want to be in a New Zealand team. That’s what I’m hoping to achieve. If I do well at nationals then that’s the first step.’’ Waka ama racing is based Go to manukaucourier.co.nz and click latest edition to see a video of the 2013 wakaamanationals. on the ancient Maori form of transport and has become increasingly popular since the 1980s. Tuatahi started paddling with the club at the Panmure Basin in 2010 but had to give up when she broke her arm a year later. She couldn’t stay away for long, she says. ‘‘After the break, when I got up and running again I got started with waka ama straight away. I just wanted to be part of the team again.’’ Tuatahi is paddling in a South Auckland is well represented at the nationals with the Cook Islands Outriggers Association sending 38 crews, Manukau Outrigger Canoe Club 57 crews and Tui Tonga Canoe Club six crews. team in the under-16 category and also in the intermediate singles this year. Tamaki is one of 54 clubs in the prestigious event. The club is nearly as old as the competition itself and has been based in Panmure since 1990. Club president Sam Walters says the nationals offer newcomers the chance to see how far the paddling sport can take them. ‘‘It’s about experiencing waka ama at its finest. The exposure down there is massive. If you’re an up-and-coming paddler you get to see the best in New Zealand. ‘‘Tuatahi is already punching above her weight in team crew – it’s really, really good stuff.’’ But there’s more to waka ama than competing, he says. ‘‘Waka ama teaches you how to be an elite athlete. That’s no different to any other sport but what waka ama provides here is real whanaungatanga, family togetherness, learning to trust and be around each other.’’ ❚ Go to wakaama.co.nz.
