Hat-tricks for Clutha women


Bal­clutha AFC was just one goal short of club pres­i­dent Danny Sim­monds hav­ing his first club shout for all the teams record­ing wins.

The first team hit unan­swered goals to Mzamo Mh­lat­shana and a won­der goal from Sim­monds in a dom­i­nant first half per­for­mance against Roslyn Wakari. The sec­ond half was a lot closer. No fur­ther goals were added in the sec­ond half and the home team fin­ished with a 2-0 vic­tory. The op­po­si­tion coach paid trib­ute to the red team, which now has a four point lead at the top of the league.

Coach Marek Misiewicz wel­comed back a full strength women’s team. This saw them re­turn to their win­ning ways with a strong per­for­mance against Caver­sham to re­turn to the top half of the league. Hat-tricks to both Olivia Brown and player of the game, Day­tona Helm, were the high­lights of the 10-2 vic­tory, but Misiewicz paid trib­ute to the work of young­sters Lorna But­ton and Amanda White.

This just left it to the men’s sec­ond eleven to com­plete the clean sweep for the day, fac­ing a Roslyn Wakari team and a di­vi­sion higher. A Cleighton Bunt­ing goal early in the first half gave the team great hope, but Roslyn pulled a goal back to be level at the break. A score­less sec­ond half kept the game level.

Man on the match for Bal­clutha was Jesse Ma­her.
