Close Encounters on the football field

The Waimak CCL men’s football team had another close encounter with Halswell United. The league leaders, Halswell were the first to score. Waimak were playing some great one touch football but as has been a problem all season, their domination couldn’t be converted to consistently scoring from their chances.  They did however manage to score through Danny Loney and tie the match up. Late in the match Halswell were able to take the lead again, and despite throwing the kitchen sink at a tiring Halswell defence, they just couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net, going down 1-2.

The CCL reserves had a terrific match beating Halswell 4-0 to climb to the top of the table.  With two matches to go they will be hoping to hold their narrow advantage, although the reserves league is another very tight competition with very few points between the top four teams.

The women’s Premier League is done and dusted for the season, finishing third, but the CWC still have a few matches to play. This weekend they were defeated by Selwyn, but remain steady in fourth place and good results in the next couple of rounds could see them climb higher.

In the Canterbury United Development boys leagues, the 15th grade had a 2-1 win over Ferrymead Bays and sit third. The 14’s had a goal fest over Selwyn 6-1 and are also currently third. The 13’s defeated the Pride Academy 3-2.  In the girls grades the 18 girls were narrowly defeated by Nomads 2-3 and are fourth, and the 14’s despite losing to Cashmere Technical 0-2, are second.
