Three Kings strike back

Central Leader - - SPORT - By JEREMY RUANE

It wasn’t good news for One­hunga-Man­gere United in football’s Lotto North­ern League Sec­ond Di­vi­sion as they lost 3-0 to Tau­ranga City United on Sun­day.

But ‘‘The Moun­tain Men’’ can play par­ty­poop­ers on Fri­day; they pro­vide the op­po­si­tion as Western Springs strive for pro­mo­tion at Sed­don Fields.

In the Lotto North­ern Pre­mier Women’s League, an early sec­ond-half goal from sub­sti­tute Jas­mine Pereira wasn’t enough to help Three Kings stave off a 3-1 de­feat by Claude­lands Rovers.

The clash at Keith Hay Park was their penul­ti­mate game of the cam­paign.

Glen­field Rovers pro­vide the op­po­si­tion at the same venue on Sun­day for United’s sea­son fi­nale.

In Lotto North­ern Pre­mier League ac­tion, One­hunga Sports and Three Kings United both recorded draws with Ross Hav­i­land on tar­get for ‘‘The Green Ma­chine’’ in a 1-1 af­fair at Hamil­ton Wan­der­ers.

Three Kings came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 at Eller­slie, courtesy of goals from Dy­lan Stans­field, Al­lan Pearce and Har­ri­son Sage.

Sage’s last-minute equaliser has edged United closer to Cen­tral United.

Cen­tral were beaten 2-1 by ti­tle-chal­lengers Birken­head United, with Ivan Vicelich scor­ing a late con­so­la­tion goal for the home team at Ki­witea St.

Sports and Cen­tral lock horns in a derby at Waikaraka Park on Satur­day, while Three Kings wel­come present league-lead­ers East Coast Bays to Keith Hay Park.
