Goals and entertainment as Swifts teams play out unbeaten weekend

Comag Matamata Swifts fought their way back into the winners circle after a good performance led, ultimately, to an emphatic 4-0 Loaded WaiBOP Premiership victory at Tokoroa on Saturday. The Swifts started well against one of the league’s strugglers but failed, at least in the early stages, to turn their dominance into goals. The breakthrough, however, couldn’t have been better timed when Brad West converted a great little ball from...

Cruel results make bleak reading for Swifts teams

The three Matamata Swifts senior teams in action over the weekend all suffered defeats, of varying degrees, making it a couple of days to both forget and move on from quickly. Comag Matamata Swifts suffered their largest defeat of the season, going down 5-1 at Loaded WaiBOP Premiership title challengers, Papamoa. The match began brightly for the Swifts, however, as they not only held Papamoa at bay but proved more than a match for...

Swifts slip out of title contention

Saturday’s senior football experience for Matamata Swifts teams was an altogether forgettable one as both Comag Matamata Swifts and Waharoa Transport Swifts Reserves sunk to home defeats. The Swifts fell 3-1 to title contenders Taupo as they failed to match the visitors during a stormy second half. Little of note happened during the bulk of the first period before the two sides traded goals in the lead up to half time. A prone Hardeep...

2-1, 2-1, 2-1…and not 2-1

Comag Matamata Swifts have completed a Loaded WaiBOP Premiership league double over Waikato Unicol after returning from Hamilton’s Jansen Park on Saturday with a 2-1 victory in the bank. A week after Matamata had lost by the same score at lowly Tauranga Blue Rovers, the Swifts secured three important points to stay on the fringes of the 2018 title race. As expected, Matamata had to soak up a lot of early pressure. Unicol has been one...

A weekend of two halves

Comag Matamata Swifts missed a great opportunity to stay in range of the top sides in the 2018 Loaded WaiBOP Premiership after they fell to a 2-1 defeat at lowly Tauranga Blue Rovers on Saturday. Missing a number of players due to a variety of reasons, the Swifts still should have had enough to beat Rovers. Brayden Lissington, fresh off the plane from China after representing New Zealand in futsal, and Hardy Rosas were back in the...

Swifts edge tense Premiership encounter

Comag Matamata Swifts rebounded from their defeat in Taupo with a hard fought, incident packed 2-1 victory over West Hamilton United on Saturday. The Swifts welcomed back 2017 Loaded WaiBOP Premiership top scorer, Chris Walker, as a direct replacement for captain Dayne Willemsen and it was Walker’s opening goal that separated the sides after a tense first half. The visitors had more possession and forced countless corners during the...

Bleak weekend for Swifts

All four Matamata Swifts senior teams were on the wrong side of the scoreline on Saturday during a weekend that also included the hospitalisation of Comag Matamata Swifts captain, Dayne Willemsen. The Swifts headed to Taupo on Saturday confident of a good showing against one of the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership’s top sides, but came away from Crown Park with a 4-0 defeat after a horror second half showing and shorn of captain, Dayne...

Swifts moving on up

Comag Matamata Swifts scored their second successive 4-0 win on Saturday, this time at Te Awamutu, to move into the top half of an incredibly congested Loaded WaiBOP Premiership table. Captain Dayne Willemsen got the scoring underway inside ten minutes but the first half was a proper arm wrestle. The home side created enough chances to at least be level, if not ahead, at the break but the Swifts’ defensive unit held strong during what...

Swifts enjoy comforts of home

Comag Matamata Swifts eased to their largest victory of the 2018 Loaded WaiBOP Premiership campaign on Saturday, seeing off bottom side Hamilton Wanderers 4-0 at the Domain. In what’s becoming a now familiar task, coach Scott Parsonage was forced into making a pre-match injury and illness-induced reshuffle and the side started slowly. While both teams created early chances it was the visitors who will be cursing their luck after...
