Swifts claim first victory

Comag Matamata Swifts have opened their 2018 account following a tense 1-0 home win over Waikato Unicol on Saturday. Brad West’s neat 70th minute finish ultimately proved to be the difference between the sides in a match that could have seen more goals at both ends. The Swifts were much improved on their opening two showings and could have been in front as early as the first minute. Both sides hit the woodwork during a goalless first...

The Ladies took several weeks to get going but after their first win in May went on a long unbeaten run that included a...
