Road win keeps Swifts in touch

Comag Matamata Swifts returned from Huntly Thistle on the right side of the score line after Stephan Turnbull’s 90th minute goal secured an edgy, but thoroughly deserved 3-2 Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership victory on Saturday. Turnbull had quite the day, scoring twice for Waharoa Transport Swifts Reserves at Ngaruawahia earlier in the day, before coming off the bench to be the Swifts’ match winner. On Sunday, Challenge Matamata Swifts...

Swifts Ladies Flying High

Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies completed a comfortable 2-0 victory over Claudelands Rovers on Sunday to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2020 football season. First half goals from Shania Stewart, a bullet which was her first of the season, and Kerrie Cox effectively sealed the result for a Swifts Ladies team who could, on another day, have scored a few more. They weren’t needed, however, as Matamata’s rear-guard was comfortable...

Two Swifts wins from three

Matamata Swifts’ senior football teams ended the weekend with two wins from three entertaining match-es.

Contrasting draws for Swifts Men and Ladies

With expectations raised after a good start to the season, Comag Matamata Swifts suffered something resembling a reality check at Te Awamutu on Saturday. A generally sluggish performance against a team up for the fight saw the Swifts drop two points after being held to a 1-1 draw. It could have been worse, with Matamata finally scrambling the ball home off a Te Awamutu defender in second half added time. The home side had been gifted...

Swifts topple title favourites

Captain, Bjorn Vossen, struck a goal in each half to secure Comag Matamata Swifts a bruising 2-0 victory over Ngaruawahia United at the Domain on Saturday. The visitors, among the favourites for the 2020 WaiBOP Premiership title, were looking to rebound from defeat last time out, but were stunned as early as the 4th minute when Vossen gave the locals the lead. A poor Domain playing surface forced both sides to modify their usual...

Swifts slog through wet weekend

An eventful weekend’s football, in many senses, saw Matamata Swifts’ senior teams record one victory and two defeats in three trips to Hamilton. Comag Matamata Swifts suffered their first Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership reverse of 2020, going down 2-0 at Waikato Unicol after playing more than an hour with ten men. The slippery conditions made football challenging. The match was a largely even contest but turned on the half hour when...
