Comag Matamata Swifts’ Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership campaign continues to move in the right direction after a second consecutive victory on Saturday. The Swifts eased home 4-1 at West Hamilton United with another performance that will help consign the team’s mid-season struggles to the “how the heck did that happen?” basket.
Andrew Clothier, back in the side after a five week injury absence, struck early from the penalty spot before Chris Walker and Sam Hills scored two goals in two minutes in the lead up to half time. It was a strong first half showing from the visiting Swifts, who now seem to be taking the sort of chances that went begging for so long this season.
Walker grabbed his second, and fifth in the last two games, with 20 minutes left to underline Matamata’s strong showing. The hosts denied the Swifts their clean sheet with a goal of their own, but that will have done little to dampen Matamata’s delight at what has, in the past, proven quite a challenging place to visit.
