Team tops the ta­ble

Bush Telegraph - - Trades And Services - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

With only a point sep­a­rat­ing the top three in the Manawatu¯ Sec­ond Di­vi­sion, Dan­nevirke Sports Club's Valkyries foot­ball team knew they had to beat Tumeke Hawks on Sun­day to at least tem­po­rar­ily make the top of the grade.

They did, win­ning 3-2 in an em­phatic dis­play of at­tack­ing foot­ball in the sec­ond half. The first half was a dis­or­gan­ised af­fair by both teams and a 1-1 score­line was a fair re­sponse.

In the sec­ond half Dan­nevirke's halves and wings fed a con­stant sup­ply of ball with ex­cel­lent ac­cu­racy to the for­ward line and the bar­rage of shots at goal could have yielded more than the two goals scored, had the Hawk's goalie not been so good.

A sin­gle surge late in the game by Tumeke had them scor­ing a goal but strong de­fence by Dan­nevirke pro­tected the one-goal ad­van­tage for re­main­ing min­utes, leav­ing both coach David Bar­ber and the team pleased to be in this po­si­tion with four games to go.
