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.

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.
