This was a game that we were supposed to be playing in Whangarei but North Force agreed to meet us at North Harbour Stadium, and many thanks go to them for that.

The game itself was played at a frenetic pace for the opening 20 minutes with the opposition scoring first. We responded before half-time when Shane snuck in an indirect free-kick after a defender back-passed to his keeper. After the restart the Wanderers boys asserted themselves a little more but still played in 'fits and starts'.

We scored next when Jackson slammed a 30 metre shot low into the net. Elliot then got on the score-sheet to extend our lead, and Ali finished a fine move that he started with a touch off from James allowing him to hit the net from 25 metres. North Force scored a very late consolation to finish the game.
