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...

One each for Swifts against Tokoroa

A couple of Domain derby matches against Tokoroa were the highlight of the local footballing weekend just gone. Challenge Matamata Swifts ladies won their match by the odd goal in seven, but Waharoa Transport Swifts Reserves fell to defeat by their game’s only goal. With the weekend’s scheduled Soccer Shop WaiBOP Premiership match for Comag Matamata Swifts’ deferred, the home interest centred largely around the double derby visit by...

Swifts defeat league leaders

Comag Matamata Swifts put in one of their strongest 45 minutes of the season on Saturday, which was enough to defeat current Loaded WaiBOP Premiership leaders Tauranga Boys’ 3-1 at the Domain. The visitors have been one of the most impressive teams this season, but were stung early when Chris Walker shut down a Tauranga defender and squared for Brayden Lissington who hammered home his fifth goal in four games. Tauranga looked good in...

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...

Swifts downed again as other team win

Comag Matamata Swifts continued their frustrating recent Loaded WaiBOP Premiership run with a narrow and, at times, unnerving 3-2 defeat by Melville United on Saturday. Needing to recover from last week’s loss at Papamoa, the Swifts were solid at the start, defending well pressing their opponent’s goal on several occasions. The visitors dodged a bullet, that may have ultimately decided the destination of the points, when a clear...
