Best ever score in com­pe­ti­tion

Central Leader - - SPORT - By JEREMY RUANE

Auck­land City FC wrapped up the round-robin phase of the ASB Pre­mier­ship in record­shat­ter­ing style against South­ern United in Dunedin on Sun­day.

The 10-0 win makes Auck­land the first team to score a dou­ble-fig­ure vic­tory in the 10-year his­tory of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Emil­iano Tade opened the scor­ing and scored again early in the sec­ond half. The re­main­ing goals were put in by new sign­ing Joao Moreira, Dar­ren White, Takuya Iwata, Adam Dickinson, Chris Bale, Andrew Milne and Ryan De Vries.

City’s fi­nal game of pool play is against sec­ond-placed Hawke’s Bay United at Napier’s Blue­wa­ter Sta­dium on Satur­day.

The club’s youth side did not per­form as strongly, suf­fer­ing a rare stum­ble when Wai­BOP United held them to a score­less draw in their North­ern Con­fer­ence clash at John Kerkhof Park on Satur­day.

They head to Cen­tre Park on Sun­day to take on Auck­land United where a win would book them a spot in the ASB Na­tional Youth League grand fi­nal.
