Round-up – July 5/6

Our senior and youth teams won three out of four games over the weekend in what was another good couple of days for the club.

Stanley Joinery Matamata Swifts picked up their third win in a row, claiming the scalp of a Ngongotaha AFC side that made it to the last 16 of the ASB Chatham Cup. Callum Barr scored for the Swifts to have the match level at 1-1 at half time, before a Bjorn Vossen penalty six minutes after the break won it for the Swifts. Final score: 2-1.

The early game was a non-event with visitors, Eastern City, defaulting on Friday evening. This left the Swifts Reserves with a 3-0 victory that kept them joint top of Waikato Division A with two other sides.

Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies took a huge step towards the Waikato Ladies C title on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Te Awamutu. Sarah Coppard and Annemieke Verstraten struck the goals that moved Ladies three points clear at the top with a game in hand. They are now the only unbeaten side in the league, have scored the most goals (by a long way) and have conceded the least.

The Matamata Sports World Under-17s suffered a 4-2 defeat at home to Geyser Football. Viraj Kumar scored twice for the under-17s to have the game level at 2-2 but the visitors struck twice in two minutes to head home with the three points.
