Six from six

The Waimak United senior men’s Championship side made it six wins from six league outings, when they defeated Western, in a top of the table clash at Kendall Park. Both teams seemed a little nervy in the first 10 minutes of the match, but Waimak settled the better, and created a number of opportunities. They were able to convert one, when Preston Bell picked out Kamil El Mohib and he finished superbly, for his seventh goal of the season. Very close to half time, and with considerable pressure mounting,

 Western conceded an own goal, after a corner, and Waimak led 2-0 at the halftime break.

Early in the second half, a sublime strike from Brad Stewart found the far corner of the goal, and Waimak had a three goal advantage. Western did start to push more players forward in a desperate attempt to get back into the game, and they did manage to pull one back. The game ending 3-1 to Waimak, and they take sole top spot on the table.

Points: Waimak 18, Western 15, Burwood 9, Parklands 9, Universities 6, FCTwenty 6, St Albans Shirley 6, Mid Canterbury 3
