Central Leader - - HEALTH& WELL-BEING -

Reign­ing ASB Na­tional Youth League cham­pi­ons Auck­land City have a stran­gle­hold on the North­ern Con­fer­ence af­ter a 5-0 de­mo­li­tion of Waitakere United at Ki­witea St on Satur­day.

The ti­tle hold­ers spread the goals around, start­ing with Ross McPhie’s ef­fort just af­ter the half-hour.

In the sec­ond spell Stewart Mackay, Thomas Konusi, Re­gont Mu­rati made it four only 20 min­utes from time.

Stephen Ashby-Peck­ham scored with just five min­utes on the clock to af­ford City a nap hand.

The goal dif­fer­ence ad­van­tage is ef­fec­tively worth an ex­tra point to City, who need to win just four games from their re­main­ing six to con­firm back-to-back ASB League grand fi­nals.

City meet Hawke’s Bay United on Wai­tangi Day be­fore tak­ing on New Zealand Wan­der­ers on Satur­day at the Croa­t­ian Cul­tural So­ci­ety’s grounds.
