Tauranga Boys 2-1 Swifts

After a scratchy run through the middle of the season, the Swifts went on a run that secured their Soccer Shop Premiership status for another season. So Saturday’s match in Tauranga left both teams little to play for. As it turned out, the game was an open affair, with a plethora of chances created at both ends.

Swifts 1-1 Tauranga Boys

Matamata Swifts’ Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership match against Tauranga Boys’ College FC was their season in microcosm. The visitors struck from a corner four and a half minutes into added time to level the match at 1-1 on an afternoon Matamata had created probably the most clear cut chances yet in what is turning out to be the most frustrating of seasons. Tauranga, as expected, were lively and energetic but once the Swifts, who were...

Tauranga Boys’ 1-1 Swifts

Only one of Matamata Swifts’ four senior teams were in action last weekend after the weather played a major part in the region’s football proceedings.

Tauranga Boys College v Matamata Swifts

Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts have fallen to another away defeat, this time by the narrowest of margins and courtesy of a penalty. In fact, in a match almost completely bereft of anything resembling clear cut goal scoring opportunities, it seemed the only way either side would score was from the spot. The hosts were handed their chance just after 20 minutes in the first half, when one of their attackers was tripped in the box. They...

Tauranga Boys College FC 2-1 Matamata Swifts

The Stanley Joinery Matamata Swifts found themselves in a similar situation to last year, with a new coach (Chris Powell) and new faces aplenty leading to the fielding of a young squad this season.
