Nervy finish for win

The Waimak Premier women’s football team held on to their joint second place in the league, with a 3-2 win over Halswell. They got out to a 3-0 lead, through two goals from Charlotte Roche, and one from Jayda Stewart. Halswell got one back before the halftime break, and then it was a nervy finish as they put a second in the net, but the Waimak girls were able to hold on.

 The CWC women’s reserve team had a top of the table clash with Cashmere Technical, but the two sides could not be separated, finishing with a 1-1 draw.

In the men’s CCL match, Burwood dominated the match, on a heavy pitch at Clare Park. They took a three goal advantage, with Waimak only able to pick up a consolation goal to Floyd Duffy in the dying minutes.  The CCL reserves were also defeated by Burwood 2-4.

In the Canterbury United development leagues, the 15 boys defeated Christchurch United 3-2, the 14’s lost 1-5, and in another close match, the 13’s ran out winners 4-3, also over Christchurch United.  The 18 girls defeated Papanui Redwood 3-1, and the 14 girls had a strong win 5-1 over Coastal Spirit.

In the midweek Premier secondary school’s competitions, the Rangiora High School boys team was beaten 0-4 by Christ College, and the girls lost to Christchurch Girls High School 1-4.
