Okay, so it may be wednesday, but better late than never… here’s a quick review of the results from last sunday, week two of the season.
The premier division has a new team on the top, with Auckland Wanderers gaining revenge on the team that recently beat them in the season-opening Charity Shield fixture. Their 3-1 victory against defending Champions, The Patriot, leaves them as the only Premiership team to take maximum points from the first two rounds. Elsewhere, Zamantix Rovers smashed seven past Auckland Volcanoes at Michaels Avenue, Inter picked up their first 3 points of the season against Boh Celtics 1 while Indy and Boh Celtics 2 played out a 1-1 score draw.
In the Championship, there was a 5-0 and a 0-5 scoreline in the fixtures involving United FC vs Sud America and City Fringe versus Kiwi True Blues. At the top, however, sit the two University teams, who enjoyed wins over Khukuri and Kingsland Athletic and are separated only by one goal in the goals scored column. UoA FC’s two win, six goals for and three against puts them top, level on points with AUT FC 1, who have two wins, five goals and two against to their name after two games.
In League 1, the result of the day has to be Zamantix Rovers Returns 9-2 away victory against AUT FC 2. The battle of the ASFA newbies saw HNK celebrating a 4-1 victory over Auckland Wanderers 2, which was enough to see them maintain their place at the top of the standings. Nixon Park earned their first 3 points of the season, beating Kamarak 4-0, while Dalian and UoA FC Reserves played out a 1-1 draw in the other game.
Viti FC hit double figures for the second game in succession in League 2, with a 13-2 demolition of newbies Auckland Unicorns at Colin Maiden Park, leaving them unbeaten and with a goal difference of plus 25 after only two rounds. U-Striker and Aotea Sport Eastern are also sitting pretty with a maximum 6 points, following 2-6 and 0-3 away wins over Massey-Albany and All Red FC. Double Rum Greenhithe earned their first 3 points of the season with an equally comfortable 4-1 win over Zamantix Force.
Finally, in the Masters Division, there was a 6-3 and a 3-6, with the Old Fullas beating the Old Fellas in what could well be the first ever ASFA league fixture to take place on Waiheke Island and Zamantix Rovers Old Boys beating Serious FC by the same scoreline on Coxes Bay Reserve. the third game in this six team league saw Greenhithe City take 3 points away from their trip to Pukekohe with a 1-5 victory.
