City proving to be a powerful force to beat
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.
