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...

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...

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...

Swifts win again as Ladies lift silverware

Matamata Swifts had a bright footballing weekend as Comag Matamata Swifts made it four Loaded WaiBOP Premiership wins on the trot, while the Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies brought home silverware after victory in the Waikato Women’s Plate final. A still-wintery Domain saw the Swifts edge past traditional rivals, Te Awamutu, 2-1 on Saturday in a match that never really rose to any great heights. The visitors were lively throughout,...
