SHARE

The final week of round two of the Oamaru Liquorland Citizens Shield will see a battle at the top as Athies entertain Old Boys, Kurow host Excelsior and Valley welcome Maheno.

Valley, Athletic Marist and Old Boys took wins from last weekend’s fixtures.

Kurow’s quest for a first win of the season continued after their failure to spoil Valley’s 25th celebrations in a 38-10 defeat in Weston.

Maheno fell to 27-19 defeat despite another valiant effort against a slick Athies at Maheno Domain.

Athletic’s pacey backs proved the difference in a tie that the green and blacks will take confidence from despite the loss.

Old Boys’ relentless crusade for a another Citizens Shield title continued with a 41-17 victory over Excelsior at the Whitestone Contracting Stadium.
