MEN'S PREMS | Amalgamated Builders Limited: Southern Premier League
Played Northern AFC at Forrester Park
WIN 1 - 5

Tom Stevens, Jak Stevenson, Shay Thom, Josh Lucas, Mitchell Gray, Luke Clissold, Harley Rodeka (c), Jack McFarlane, Justin Wiechens, Nathan Wilkie, Sam Cosgrove. Subs: Brandon Sumpter, Tyler Muir, Jaime Le Comte, Dylan Edwards.

Today we were good, we created chances, we converted chances, we looked a lot better side then usual. We now have our backs to the wall every week we play and if we are to be successful and qualify for the South Island league, it's through the hard endeavour of our players and the application that they keep trying to produce week in week out like today. The first 20-25 minutes we tried to play but couldnt because of Northerns pressure and over zealous tackles. We scored most of our goals through our set pieces today which have been our most consistent weapon to date. Our first goal is scored through Justin Wiechens with a header from a corner, our second is an own goal which resulted from a corner as well. We concede a very silly penalty through three silly moments, the first a missed header which was called for, the second was a dive into making up for the first mistake and lastly the challenge that led to the penalty, all three mistakes NOT needed! The third goal is from a corner again as Josh Lucas scores with his foot after Northern try to clear their lines with it falling to Josh and the rest is history as he hits the back of the net. Half time is 3-1.

The second half we were dominant, we squeezed Northern trying to look for turn overs in our attacking areas and score on the counter attack. We created a lot of chances which was really pleasing. Our fourth goal is through Justin Wiechens who runs through after a great long pass and scores a good goal. The last was a set piece which Josh Lucas scores a thumping header from which was unstoppable. This week we welcomed back Tom Bealin, not as a player but in the coaching ranks, having another voice around is a good thing, especially one that the lads know. For this week everyone played well, the subs that came of the bench were really good and added their own influence to the game. The players that came off were for tactical reasons, nothing else, as they all did an awesome job while on the pitch. It was good to see us dominate a game, which I believe for 65 minutes we were.

I thought all the players were awesome today but of note were Tom Steven's for thwarting their one on ones, Harley Rodeka was his consistent self, Jack McFarlane another good game, Sam Cosgrove and Nathan Wilkie. But Player of the Day was Jak Stevenson who was back to his relentless self his harrowing and no nonsense approach to the game was a pleasure to see.

BLACK'S | Hugh Madden Ltd: Men's Division 2
Played Northern AFC at Brockville
WIN 4 - 1

This week saw us take on Northern who have been hovering around the top of the table. A big match and Northern showed their quality in the first half with a well worked team goal to put us behind for the second week in a row. Our chances were few and far between, with Northern holding onto most of the possession and self-doubt was peaking its head amongst the 3rd Blacks. First half ended 0-1 to Northern.

The team talk at half time sparked positivity and inspiration, knowing that we are capable of a better performance we came out swinging. Lippers got a goal 1 minute after the restart, by the time Buzz had finish writing down Lippy’s name as goal scorer, Damo doubles the lead, 2-1 47 minutes gone. Laurie hit a great strike to make it 3-1 and shortly after Rich slotted a goal to give us a 4-1 lead 12 minutes into the second half. The score would remain 4-1, with a great comeback and a boost to the team moral as we move on to play Tech this week.

BRUMBIES | Aotea Electric Ltd: Men's Division 3
Played Dunedin Technical AFC at Culling Park
WIN 1 - 3

After a thrilling 1-0 victory last weekend for the Brumbies, which cemented our first win of the season, we were walking into this game trying to get consecutive wins to help boost our confidence. After a shaky start caused us to concede in the first minute of the game, we kept our heads high and fought with everything that we had. A stunning header from Lucas got us right back in the game. A deserved penalty then gave us the lead, with Bobby securing the win with a nice strike from just inside the box, the Brumbies saw three points. The best performance in the season to date gives us a load of confidence going into the next match.

DRAW 1 - 1
BLACK (FORMERLY RESERVES) | David Browne Contracting Ltd: Women's Division 1
Played Otago University AFC at Ellis Park
DRAW 4 - 4

This weekend saw the David Browne Contracting RWAFC Black team take on a University team at Ellis Park.

It was a meeting of two unbeaten teams so was destined to be a tough battle. Uni came at us with a disciplined and strategic approach which saw us two goals down in the first few minutes of the game for the first time this season. Once we got our heads around their tactics, we began to force our way back into the game with simple football. We pulled a goal back before they scored again taking us to half time 3-1 down.

In the second half we continued to try to break down and funnel Uni’s moves towards our goal, while attacking theirs at speed resulting in pulling a goal back to make it 3-2, before they extended their lead 4-2. Through dogged determination and a stellar team effort, we reeled in their lead eventually scoring the equalising 4th goal in the last couple of minutes of the game.

I said at the beginning of the game that this was going to be one of our toughest games yet and will be a good measure of where we are and what to work on. It showed that we are a tough, resilient bunch of footballers with great potential.

Big thanks to Kate Macbeth for helping us out, bringing her experience and skill to the field, allowing us to settle after a shaky start, and to Stewart Macbeth for refereeing the game.

Player of the day went to the versatile Kate Johnstone.

TROJANS | Connor Consulting: Masters 45+
Played Grants Braes AFC Teckle at Ellis Park
LOSS 0 - 3

The Trojans enjoyed home ground territory against the newly promoted Grants Braes Teckle lads. Numbers were down, what with 22 player options away for the long weekend, retired, injured or just couldn't be bothered, 12 were mustered for game day and thank god the Colts had the bye as 4 of them were promoted.

We fought well, but with 2 injuries were down to ten men by half time which made it hard on those left. Down 2 nil on the stroke of half time we barraged their goal in the second half with more chances than them not converted but whistling by the goal. Ultimately we lost 3 nil with plenty of game time for the committed souls who turned up and the evergreen Brian Cox was player of the day with a couple of blistering shots cleared off the line or parried away by their agile keeper.
