One­hunga Sports lead cen­tral Auck­land’s charge in the Lotto North­ern Pre­mier League ti­tle race af­ter scor­ing a 2-1 win at ti­tle-hold­ers’ Bay Olympic on Satur­day.

Di­ashi Fu­rukawa and Scott Foster scored in each half as The Green Ma­chine edged the reign­ing cham­pi­ons at Olympic Park, where Dan Jones was on tar­get from the penalty spot for the beaten team.

Across town at Ki­witea St, Cen­tral United and Three Kings United were bat­tling out a 1-1 draw, with the vis­i­tors’ Mikhail Bre­de­veldt’s sec­ond minute goal can­celled out by Stephen Carmichael’s screamer 30 min­utes later.

In Lotto North­ern Pre­mier Women’s League ac­tion, Three Kings United were made to work hard for their 5-0 win at Keith Hay Park by a plucky Western Springs com­bi­na­tion which was de­nied what would have been a well-de­served goal in the sec­ond spell.

Well-taken strikes from for­mer Young Ferns stars Jessica Rollings and Clau­dia Cras­born put Three Kings in front.

Mar­tine Puke­tapu made it three just af­ter the hour fol­low­ing a well-worked move, while Rollings rat­tled home her sec­ond of the game from 25 yards in the 68th minute.

Puke­tapu joined her in bag­ging a brace of goals seven min­utes from time.

In Lotto North­ern League First Di­vi­sion ac­tion, David Featonby’s strike two min­utes into the sec­ond half of the match at Al­bie Turner Field earned Metro a very wel­come 1-0 win over sec­ond-placed Taka­puna

In Lotto North­ern League Sec­ond Di­vi­sion ac­tion, lead­ers Western Springs came a crop­per for the first time this sea­son as Man­gere United handed ‘‘The Hoops’’ a 3-0 hid­ing at Cen­tre Park.
