Del Monte’s sec­ond came dur­ing a fi­nal 20minute flurr y in which Mi­los Nikolic and Adam McGe­org e also scored for Cen­tral, while Jin­drich Hahn sent one home for Tau­ranga.

Mean­while four th­placed Melville United over­came third-placed Lynn-Avon 6-3 at Gower Park in a match which fea­tured a hat-trick in the fi­nal 10 min­utes from the home team’s Matt Wil­liams.

And in other action Hamil­ton Wan­der­ers came from be­hind to up­set Metro 2- 1 at Por­ritt Sta­dium.
