Swifts winless at the weekend despite tight encounters

Comag Matamata Swifts slipped to their first defeat of the season on Saturday, 1-0 at home against Papamoa FC, while the Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies team also dropped points on what was a generally disappointing weekend for Matamata Swifts’ senior football teams. The Swifts have opened the season with a run of games against the WaiBOP Premiership’s leading sides, with four of their first five matches against the current top four....

Swifts remain unbeaten as Ladies toppled

Comag Matamata Swifts are the sole remaining unbeaten side in The Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership after Saturday’s games. The Swifts were held to a 1-1 draw by Otumoetai, but Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies have tasted defeat for the first time in 2019. The Swifts’ game against Otumoetai was far from a classic. Both sides had battled through 120 minutes of ISPS Handa Chatham Cup football only two days earlier and it showed. The...

Swifts topple league leaders

Comag Matamata Swifts have picked up their second victory in three games, a 1-0 win at Waikato Unicol, to continue their solid start to the 2019 Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership season. With Unicol having played a game more than Matamata, and won them all, victory for the Swifts was vital if they were to keep in touch at the top of the table. Radge Avergonzado’s strike five minutes before half time, his second of the season and one of...

Sun goes down on another season of Swifts football

The final two matches of senior football in Matamata Swifts’ 2018 season were completed over the weekend, with a win and a loss for the club’s two leading sides. On Saturday, in front of a great end of season crowd, Comag Matamata Swifts came out on the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline. Their visitors, Otumoetai, struck from a free kick just before the hour mark, in what was, by and large, a tight, physical encounter that never rose to...

Swifts downed at Otumoetai

Comag Matamata Swifts returned from their final trip across the Kaimais this season with a 3-0 defeat by Tauranga-based Otumoetai FC that has dented their hopes of a top six Loaded WaiBOP Premiership finish. After a run of four straight wins, the Swifts would have entered this match full of confidence, but three goals from the hosts in the opening 45 minutes put paid to that record. Matamata had chances of their own, but just didn’t...
