Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts 4-1 Melville United
Loaded WaiBOP Premiership
Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts maintained second spot in the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership after a 4-1 victory over Melville United on Saturday.
The visitors opened the scoring early on from the penalty spot, but Chris Walker’s goal had the Swifts level by half time when he fired the ball home after good work in the build up from Andrew Clothier.
Matamata completely took over after the break.
Jordane Lambert’s raping finish just before the hour mark put Matamata in front. Equally as fine was the ball that played him in from captain, Scott Parsonage. Brad West’s double in the last quarter hour underlined his team’s second half dominance. The Swifts also had the luxury of missing a penalty when Jamie Baxter’s spot kick was well saved.
This was Matamata’s tenth win in fourteen games and it ensured they remained unbeaten at home in 2016. They still sit six points behind leaders, Ngongotaha.
