Swifts 0-1 Otumoetai

On Saturday, in front of a great end of season crowd, Comag Matamata Swifts came out on the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline. Their visitors, Otumoetai, struck from a free kick just before the hour mark, in what was, by and large, a tight, physical encounter that never rose to any great heights. Both sides created a handful of other good opportunities but struggled with the quality needed to take full advantage. In general, the spectacle...

Otumoetai 3-0 Swifts

Comag Matamata Swifts returned from their final trip across the Kaimais this season with a 3-0 defeat by Tauranga-based Otumoetai FC that has dented their hopes of a top six Loaded WaiBOP Premiership finish. After a run of four straight wins, the Swifts would have entered this match full of confidence, but three goals from the hosts in the opening 45 minutes put paid to that record. Matamata had chances of their own, but just didn’t...

Swifts 2-1 Te Awamutu

Matamata Swifts had a bright footballing weekend as Comag Matamata Swifts made it four Loaded WaiBOP Premiership wins on the trot, while the Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies brought home silverware after victory in the Waikato Women’s Plate final. A still-wintery Domain saw the Swifts edge past traditional rivals, Te Awamutu, 2-1 on Saturday in a match that never really rose to any great heights. The visitors were lively throughout,...

Wanderers 2-4 Swifts

Comag Matamata Swifts cruised to their third Loaded WaiBOP Premiership win on the trot with a comfortable 4-2 win at bottom side, Hamilton Wanderers, on Saturday. Jamie Baxter scored his eighth goal of the season on twelve minutes to settle what would have been the most minimal amount of nerves. When Brayden Lissington kept his excellent recent run going with Matamata’s second just after the half hour the result looked settled,...

Swifts 3-1 Tauranga Boys’

Swifts 3-1 Tauranga Boys’

Comag Matamata Swifts put in one of their strongest 45 minutes of the season on Saturday, which was enough to defeat current Loaded WaiBOP Premiership leaders Tauranga Boys’ 3-1 at the Domain. The visitors have been one of the most impressive teams this season, but were stung early when Chris Walker shut down a Tauranga defender and squared for Brayden Lissington who hammered home his fifth goal in four games. Tauranga looked good in...

Tokoroa 0-4 Swifts

Comag Matamata Swifts fought their way back into the winners circle after a good performance led, ultimately, to an emphatic 4-0 Loaded WaiBOP Premiership victory at Tokoroa on Saturday. The Swifts started well against one of the league’s strugglers but failed, at least in the early stages, to turn their dominance into goals. The breakthrough, however, couldn’t have been better timed when Brad West converted a great little ball from...

Swifts 2-3 Melville

Comag Matamata Swifts continued their frustrating recent Loaded WaiBOP Premiership run with a narrow and, at times, unnerving 3-2 defeat by Melville United on Saturday. Needing to recover from last week’s loss at Papamoa, the Swifts were solid at the start, defending well pressing their opponent’s goal on several occasions. The visitors dodged a bullet, that may have ultimately decided the destination of the points, when a clear...
