Premier: Olympic 1, Island Bay 1
This was supposed to be an an Olympic home game at Newtown Park but was transferred to Wakefield 1 to in effect hand the "home" advantage to Island Bay. The ground was at its buppiest best and the strong northerly blew accross the ground. So everything was set up for an unatractive affair was duly served up to the few souls who dared to veture out. Island Bay had the clearer chances in the first half with Porteus and Ure coming close on 3 occasions. Alex Smith missed a "sitter" header also, so half clsoed 0-0 and a fair indication of the half. 2nd half saw Olympic take more control of the midfield with Romijn and Jared shining. A couple more chances created by IB with Ure having the best and skying over the bar from 5 yards. Jared had a screamer saved by the goalkeeper but penalties either way was the only action here. Ure and Romijn each converting the penalties to put everybody out of their misery and take a point each from the encounter.
