Big score­line hid­ing a gritty ef­fort

Matamata Chronicle - - Classified -

The Chal­lenge Mata­mata Ladies team scored five goals for the sec­ond time this sea­son to de­feat Te Awa­mutu 5-1 in a match that looked com­fort­able on the score­sheet but took a fair amount of grit and per­se­ver­ance to achieve.

With lim­ited play­ing num­bers avail­able, the team held a nar­row 2-1 lead at the break thanks to goals from Zoe Re­ichardt and Ker­rie Cox.

The Ladies dug deep pushed on for what and was ul­ti­mately a con­vinc­ing win in the sec­ond half.

In­juries meant the side played the fi­nal 20 min­utes with only ten players, but two fur­ther goals from Re­ichardt and one more from Cox gave the ladies an­other win and moved them into a midtable po­si­tion in the Waikato Ladies League.

Along with the goal scor­ers, both Gaby Raynel and Kimika Cle­ments put in strong show­ings for the team.
