Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts 2-2 Otumoetai
Loaded WaiBOP Premiership
Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts dropped points at home for only the second time this season, after being held 2-2 by fourth placed Otumoetai in Saturday’s latest round of the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership.
The visitors presented a tough physical challenge for the Swifts and started well only to see Matamata hit the front in the 6th minute when Chris Walker fired home a Jamie Baxter cross.
Otumoetai snatched a goal back before the break during a first half of multiple opportunities for both sides. The visiting keeper made three good stops while at the other end Otumoetai were their own worst enemies with their profligacy in front of goal.
Baxter put the Swifts back in front on 73 minutes after some quick thinking from a free kick, but Matamata coughed up a late equaliser when some poor decision making led to an opportunity the visitors gleefully took.
