Northern, Central & Mainland Premier Women's League & Northern Men's League.
Lotto Northern Premier Women's League, August 2 review

United Stun Glenfield To End Rovers' Title Hopes
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Glenfield Rovers' hopes of coming from behind to take out the Lotto Northern Premier Women's League crown this season suffered a devastating blow at Keith Hay Park on August 2, as Three Kings United conquered the ASB National Women's Knockout Cup holders 2-1.

If you arrived late, you'd have missed all the scoring! Isabella Richards gave United a third minute lead which Liz Milne matched via a twelfth minute equaliser - a rare goal from the some-time Football Fern.

Story by Jeremy Ruane

Lynn-Avon United secured their Lotto Northern Premier Women's League status with three games to spare at a rain-slicked Ken Maunder Park on July 26, edging Papatoetoe 2-0 in a closely contested affair between the two of the competition's bottom three-ranked clubs.

Lotto Northern League, Easter Monday review

“E” Teams Prevail In Table-Topping Towellings
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Easter Monday proved to be a great one for the “E” teams in the Lotto Northern League First Division, with Eastern Suburbs and Ellerslie both scoring convincing victories on home turf in their clashes against fellow top-five contenders.

“The Lilywhites” trailed Western Springs on goal difference going into the round, but “The Hoops” found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-0 thumping at Madills Farm, courtesy goals from Haidar Jabir, Nik Keown-Robson and Harry Redwood.

Across town at Michaels Avenue, Ellerslie took Takapuna to task, Andy Wallace leading the way with a first half hat-trick in a 6-1 win. Dominic Higgins, Freddie Ljungberg and Adam Scott - fresh off the golf course - rounded out the rout, which was punctuated by a ninth goal of the season from “Taka”’s Lee Robinson.

Lotto Northern League match report - MAP v. Waiuku

MAP Down Waiuku In Genuine Six-Pointer
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Mt. Albert-Ponsonby greatly eased their relegation concerns at Anderson Park on August 1, thanks to a 3-0 victory over Waiuku in a genuine six-pointer between two of the teams in the lower reaches of the Lotto Northern League First Division.

Knowing that a Waiuku victory would have seen the visitors close to within a point of MAP, with the added bonus of two games in hand, the home team knew this was a match from which they had to score a win in their quest for First Division survival, and they duly contrived the first chance of the match in the ninth minute.

C&M Premier Women's Leagues, August 2 review

Spirit Take Out Title For Fourth Successive Season
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Coastal Spirit claimed their fourth successive Mainland Premier Women's League title in style on August 1, trouncing challengers Canterbury University 4-1 at ASB Park to reclaim the silverware.

Captain Chloe Jones afforded the title-holders the perfect start in this key encounter between two of the three teams still in contention for the trophy, before Football Ferns star Annalie Longo grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and put the result beyond doubt with a first half hat-trick.

ASB National Women's Knockout Cup match report - Eastern Suburbs v. Western Springs

Springs Sink Suburbs To Seal Semis Spot
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Western Springs came from behind to overcome Eastern Suburbs 3-2 after extra time in an absorbing ASB National Women's Knockout Cup quarter-final at Madills Farm on August 2, one which the youngsters were just two minutes away from winning in regulation time.

As the scoreline, and the fact it went to extra time, suggests, this was a very close contest every step of the way, one in which both teams enjoyed the upper hand at times without quite being able to be truly dominant, such was the competitive nature of their opponents and their eagerness to wrestle back the advantage.

FIFA World Cup Intercontinental Play-off match report - All Whites v. Mexico

Mexico Bring Down Curtain On Herbert’s Reign
Story by Jeremy Ruane

Mexico deservedly confirmed their place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals in Brazil on 20 November, downing New Zealand’s All Whites 4-2 at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium to claim a 9-3 aggregate victory in their intercontinental qualifying play-off.

Trailing 5-1 from the first leg in Mexico City, and urged on by a 35,206-strong crowd, the All Whites set about their quest of overhauling the deficit with a much-changed side, one laden with youth and vitality.

FIFA Women's World Cup Finals
FIFA WWC Final match report - USA v. Japan

Five-Star USA Triumph In Style In "The Carli Cup Final"
Story by Jeremy Ruane In Canada

It will go down in history as "The Carli Cup Final", due to the outstanding individual display of captain Carli Lloyd, but the all-round performance of Team USA was every bit as significant and decisive as they brought the four-year reign of Japan as world champions of women's football to an emphatic end at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium on July 5.

To win any cup final 5-2 is an amazing achievement. To do so in the global spotlight which the FIFA Women's World Cup Final attracts is something else again. This wasn't just a win by the world's most successful women's football-playing nation. This was a triumph. And one achieved in some style.

And in a heck of a hurry! In a manner not dissimilar to Liverpool's demolition job on Arsenal at Anfield in the 2013-14 English Premier League season, the USA were 4-0 up and in dreamland after just sixteen minutes.

FIFA WWC match report - China v. Football Ferns

We Wuz Robbed … Again!
Story by Jeremy Ruane In Canada

The Football Ferns' FIFA Women's World Cup campaign ended in tears, disappointment and controversy at the Winnipeg Stadium on 15 June, as in a match they needed to win to advance to the knockout phase, they were held to a 2-2 draw by China in front of 26,191 fans.

Those fans witnessed some decidedly dubious decisions by Hungarian referee Katalin Kulcsar, some Chinese gamesmanship which saw their coach, Wei Hao, sent from the bench late in the contest, and a delay in play due to a Chinese fan invading the pitch.

They also witnessed an absorbing yet highly entertaining encounter between two nations whose hopes of progressing to the next round of the competition hinged on the outcome of this match, and of the other game in the group taking place at the same time - Canada and Holland drew 1-1, as things turned out, meaning the host nation topped the group, while the Dutch will almost certainly advance as one of the best third-placed teams.

FIFA WWC - Second Helpings

Second Helpings
Story by Jeremy Ruane In Canada

A case of 'if only'!

That was the over-riding feeling following our second match in Edmonton, where a scoreless draw with Canada could very easily have ended up with the Football Ferns claiming all three points at the expense of the host nation.

Normally I'd put the house on Amber delivering when a goalscoring opportunity is there for the taking. She is usually reliability personified in front of goal, particularly from twelve yards, but this was a rare occasion when she didn't come up with the goods, something which happens to the very best finishers in the game at any time.
