Swifts moving on up

Comag Matamata Swifts’ late season run in The Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership continued apace on Saturday as Hardy Rosas’ added time goal gave the team a 2-1 victory at Ngaruawahia United and moved them into the top five. For so long the 2019 season had been one of struggle and injury for Matamata and, as late as mid-July, looked like being one in which relegation was a very real prospect. But a run of four wins and two draws in their...

Swifts held while Ladies suffer injury heartbreak

Comag Matamata Swifts kept their recent unbeaten run going on Saturday, albeit after a draw at Te Awamutu, while Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies’ Waikato Plate campaign was ended on Sunday after a brave effort against Otorohanga. The Swifts’ Soccer Shop Premiership visit to Te Awamutu ended in a 1-1 draw, which was a result that suited the home side more as they all but secured their survival. The Swifts had much the better of the...

Swifts strike again in wild weekend

Comag Matamata Swifts’ excellent recent run continued as they won 5-0 over Tauranga Blue Rovers at a sodden Matamata Domain on Saturday. Brad West poked home a Chris Walker cross less than ten minutes in to settle the home side’s nerves and they went on to provide a dominant display against a visiting side missing several key players. Two goals in three minutes in the lead up to half time effectively settled the result as first...

Three wins from four for Swifts teams

Comag Matamata Swifts’ Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership campaign continues to move in the right direction after a second consecutive victory on Saturday. The Swifts eased home 4-1 at West Hamilton United with another performance that will help consign the team’s mid-season struggles to the “how the heck did that happen?” basket. Andrew Clothier, back in the side after a five week injury absence, struck early from the penalty spot before...

Swifts in seventh heaven

Comag Matamata Swifts released months of pent up footballing angst on Saturday, defeating Ngaruawahia United 7-2 at the Domain in their latest Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership match with the type of clinical finishing that had previously been absent all season. The talk leading up to the match was that, in recent games, Matamata had created more than enough but, for some reason, the goals just wouldn’t go in. While this match ultimately...

Weekend of woe for Swifts teams

After an abbreviated schedule a week ago, all Matamata Swifts’ senior teams were back in action this weekend and each ended their match with a similar tale of woe. Comag Matamata Swifts and Waharoa Transport Swifts reserves had an unhappy time of it over the hill. The Swifts lost 4-0 to WaiBOP Premiership leaders, Papamoa, while the reserves went down 4-1 to Papamoa’s reserves in the early game. The Swifts were down by three at the...

Usual ups and downs in another weekend of Swifts football

It was another case of what could have been for Comag Matamata Swifts on Saturday, as they went down 1-0 to WaiBOP Premiership title chasers, Waikato Unicol, after creating enough chances to have taken more from the match. Down to the bare bones, due to an injury list as long as Nile River, the Swifts were forced to sit in and look to counter their polished opponents. Unicol, as a result, had more of the ball but the Swifts were able...
