MPS Kori­mako stings Wasps

Matamata Chronicle - - Building/sport -

On a crisp but clear Fri­day night the strong un­de­feated Hin­uera Wasps lined up against MPS Kori­mako.

A fast flow­ing hockey game en­sued with Mata­mata tak­ing their goal op­por­tu­ni­ties cour­tesy of Lu­cas Mccloud.

Hin­uera were held back by solid de­fence but had two very close at­tempts at goal.

A beau­ti­ful Satur­day saw Firth Rangers start against Te Poi Com­bined. Although Firth got a smash­ing first goal by Troy Mercer, Te Poi re­asserted them­selves as the game went on and chipped away with three on the back of good link­ing pass­ing by Te Poi for­wards.

The other se­nior game was be­tween Mata­mata sides Hihi and Pi­wakawaka.

The Fan­tails were look­ing for their first win but the Stitch Birds were hav­ing none of it and closed the door one up.

In the Ju­nior sec­tion Te Poi Rangers and Te Poi Tigers fought hard for a win to the Tigers.

Mata­mata Kotare scored five against Hin­uera Stingers’ two, while Hin­uera Buzzy Bees reversed the trend, but in a near thing, against Mata­mata Tui. Caitlin Tid­marsh got the fair play award for Hin­uera while Con­rad Wil­son was nom­i­nated for Mata­mata.

In a good de­fen­sive game Mata­mata Kiwi won over Wairere Wal­ton Weta. Re­sults: Se­niors Hin­uera Wasps 0 v MPS Kori­mako 2, Firth Rangers 1 v Te Poi Com­bined 3, MPS Hihi 1 v MPS Pi­wakawaka 0, WW Blue Sticks a bye. Ju­niors Te Poi Ranges 2 v Te Poi Tigers 3; MPS Kotare 5 v Hin­uera Stingers 2; MPS Tui 2 v Hin­uera Buzzy Bees 3; MPS Kiwi 3 v WW Weta 2, WW Pan­thers a bye.
