Women keep on winning
Tokoroa women’s football team continued on with their outstanding season with an emphatic 6-0 away win over West Hamilton in the Waikato Cup.
In difficult conditions and on a boggy playing surface Tokoroa had complete control from the outset and a Jane Honey hat trick, two more to youngster Jacinda Shaw and another from Leonie Nugroho saw Tokoroa comfortably progress into the next round where the high flying A grade teams await. Honey was put through a vigorous goal scoring training session on Thursday in a bid to regain her sharpness and it appeared to pay off. Her explosive left foot makes her a scary proposition for defences and with her improved movement off the ball she has been instrumental in this cup run. A settled back four of Grace Coffin, Victoria Bowers- mason, Rachel Durie and Sharna Loye had a largely untroubled after noon , but much bigger challenges await in the next round. Player of the day was Jenny Chang, enjoying her best ever season, who was able to get in behind the opposition back four and deliver quality early ball into the box. This week sees the battle for the league title back on as third placed Waikato Unicol visit Strathmore Park. A large crowd will be there to roar on the girls who sit on 29 points while the visitors are on 27. Tokoroa won a pulsating affair last time out 3-2.
