Thames Valley scored three tries to North Otago's one, but two of the tries were the result of charge downs of attempted North Otago clearing kicks.
Heading into the last five minutes of the game North Otago camped between Thames Valley's 10m line and 22m line eventually winning a chance to kick a penalty goal, his fifth of the game in a 17-point haul for Smith.
Mid Canterbury and South Canterbury played out a 13-13 draw in Ashburton while Buller travelled to Levin to beat Horowhenua Kapiti 46-31.
