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.
