2014 Winter Season : Week 12

Cold winds and misty cloud formations couldn't stop yet another full on round of football for our army of Blue!

 

Central League

Grant Plumbing Petone made it back to back wins in the Central League after tucking away Tawa 5-1. Petone dominated this game through out but only lead 1-0 at the half via Davey Lane. The second half saw the goals flow but only after Petone broke down a resolute Tawa defence. George Milne grabbed a double with Logan Archer and Benn Dawson, via a stunning free-kick, getting the others. Petone had a tonne of chances but hitting 5 on a cold, miserable day at the home of football was a good fix for the loyal Blue fanbase. The boys face Olympic this Saturday at Wakefield Park looking for 3 on the trot. Good luck lads!

 

Mens Football

Our Reserves had a rough time up against a strong Olympic side going down 6-0.

 

Out at the Ole Academy our Third team matched the Firsts also putting Tawa away 5-1.

 

The Armanis got a 3-3 draw with Stokes Valley over on the #2. After a tough start the boys are on a strong run.

 

Station Village Petone Pickle Jar (is that name long enough for you? it's a beauty huh?) put Brooklyn to the sword 4-1.

 

The Stonecutters had an 8 goal ding dong with Karori winning 5-3.

 

The Hawk Wasps got the better of the Island Bay Hotspurs 2-1. No Luck for Petone For Shore going down 8-1 to Vic University. Vic Uni also put away Petone Chicago 7-1, clearly the students had an early night on Friday.

 

The Chuggers were down to play Monday night on the Turf but some classic shenanigans from the electricity saw the floodlights shut down without a net being harassed or whistle tooted. In a bizarre twist the PFC management committee meeting in the clubrooms ran along smoothly with enough light to run Heaven.

 

Over in the Masters arena..Left Over Stew smashed the living daylights out of Wests 8-0 over on #4. The Dreamers got a 1-1 draw with Porirua and the Mighty Masters were mightily unlucky to go down 3-2 to Stokes Valley.

 

The Under 17's both had wins. The A's beating Wharfies 2-0 and The B's smashing Marist 6-1.

 

Womens Football

The Paulers had the weekend off so just the Pure were in action. Out at Endeavour Park they went down 2-1 to Wests. Our ladies felt they were very unlucky (first goal was clearly offside) but, if you saw our Facebook page, some Wests players/supporters weren't having a bar of it! Good to see hearty discussion happening in the Womens arena.

 

Junior Football

Another exciting round of football last weekend. We are already half way through the junior season, where is the year going?!

 

Let’s kick off with the 10th Grade Villagers who came away with two wins in the Hutt Valley Yellow league. Following another round of re-grading in the 10th Travelling Leagues this week the 10th Settlers came up against BNU, winning 3-0. Their second game saw them take on Karori, this was a tough encounter the team grabbed the win (1-0) with an impressive header from a corner by Lucas Jelley.

 

At Sladden Park the 11th Grade Rovers came back from being down against Stop Out McCreadie to post a 5-3 win, hats/beanies off to Ethan Goddard for scoring a hat-trick. Also in the 11th Grade this week, the Villagers scored an emphatic 9-0 win over Upper Hutt Phoenix, while the Nomads drew with Eastbourne out at Bishop Park.

 

The 9th Grade also had a successful weekend overall with the Travellers holding Upper Hutt to a 1-1 draw but going down to Stokes Valley in their second game. The Villagers also had a draw but went on to win against Upper Hutt 3-1. The Settlers and Wanderers recorded wins in their games, and we hear some silky skills were on show from both teams.

 

This coming weekend sees another festival day at Memorial Park for the 7th and 8th grades – that also means the coffee cart will be back so make sure you stop by and get your fix. Maybe start with a Mochachino and then hit the good stuff via a triple shot Flat White! Football and a good coffee, you'll thank us later.

 

Girls Only

The 7/8th Grade Girls Only Petone team have obviously been inspired by the FIFA World Cup scoring 20 goals across their four games last weekend – fantastic!

 

In the other grades, the 10th Petone 2 team had a narrow loss to Island Bay, but came back to win against Onslow 3-1. Unfortunately the results didn’t go the way of the other 10th and 12th Girls teams. Better luck this weekend!
