Pukekohe AFC – 9 June 2018

Pukekohe AFC Women’s team welcomed Papatoetoe United to Bledisloe Park on Sunday morning looking to bounce back from their defeat to Tuakau last weekend. Pukekohe started brightly, played with their usual fun loving spirit and were playing some nice football. Both teams created chances to score the game’s opening goal but neither team could break the deadlock and the game remained goalless at half time. The half time team talk from coach Peter Wild was “more of the same please” and Pukekohe continued to assert their presence on the game. Eventually the pressure told, and Pukekohe were awarded a penalty kick which was coolly converted into the bottom corner by central midfielder Zara Adams, to make it 1-0 to Pukekohe. The game opened up and Pukekohe soon doubled their lead as Zara Adams got her second goal of the game, volleying passed the Papatoetoe goalkeeper and into the net. Papatoetoe didn’t give up though and a wonderful diving save from Pukekohe goalkeeper, Katie Hackett, kept the score at 2-0 to Pukekohe. Papatoetoe did eventually score a goal that their overall performance merited with the last kick of the game, and so the game finished 2-1 to Pukekohe.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
