Springs battle on

Sadly for ‘‘ The Hoops’’, Iman Said’s celebrations after her goal in the second spell were cut short by the offside flag.
In men’s first division, David Featonby’s strike two minutes into the second half of Metro’s match at Albie Turner Field earned the Mt Albert side a 1-0 win over second-placed Takapuna.
