Central Leader - - SPORT -

Mother Na­ture struck the Lotto North­ern League pro­gramme with a vengeance last week­end forc­ing the aban­don­ment of seven of the 15 sched­uled football games.

The pre­mier league derby at Olympic Park be­tween Bay Olympic and Three Kings United was called off at half­time and Mt Al­bertPon­sonby’s first di­vi­sion duel with Hi­bis­cus Coast lasted just 10 min­utes at An­der­son Park.

One­hunga-Man­gere United will have to re­visit Wal­ter Massey Park as their sec­ond di­vi­sion clash at Manukau City was aban­doned af­ter 65 min­utes.

Cen­tral United lost 2-0 at East Coast Bays while One­hunga Sports went down 3-1 at Ma­nurewa in pre­mier league ac­tion and Metro were nar­rowly beaten 3-2 at Melville United.

Two Sam Bur­foot goals sand­wiched a Liam Mul­rooney ef­fort as Western Springs ex­tended their ad­van­tage at the top of the ta­ble thanks to a 3-0 win at Tau­ranga City United.

In Lotto North­ern Pre­mier Women’s League ac­tion on Sun­day, Three Kings United edged out Lyn­nAvon United 1-0 in the ‘‘Old Firm’’ derby at Keith Hay Park.

Western Springs slumped to a 7-1 de­feat at Sed­don Fields from an Eastern Sub­urbs side whose lead­ing scorer Rebecca Tegg scored the 150th league goal of her ca­reer – a tally not many can boast.
