Olympic 1, Gisborne 3

On Sunday it was Kieran Jordan's class and Olympic's horror finishing that dominated talk around the league. The former South African international showed why he was joint New Zealand Football Championship golden boot winner, scoring via a deflection pass Olympic goalkeeper James Bannatyne for his first goal to give Gisborne a 1-0 lead at halftime, Jordan scored twice more in the second half.

Olympic missed eight gilt-edged chances in-between times, including missed opportunities by midfielder John Rowe, Jamie Duncan and a penalty miss by striker Geoff Brown. Geoff also hit the post after lobbing Gisborne goalkeeper Danny Robinson who made two crucial saves in a fiery match that saw the yellow card produced six times.

Olympic co-coach Gary Nelson could only bemoan the Wellington's club's wastefulness which leaves them second from bottom behind Red Sox: "That's been our luck for the last three games." "I thought we played pretty well today but we just had no luck. If they don't go in, they don't go in . . . what can you do? Jordan just showed his sheer class." Nelson insists he is not concerned about Olympic's slow start, something he predicted pre-season given the club's disrupted build-up.

"If it had been any other side today we would have killed them. We missed a penalty, J D (Duncan) missed those two chances and Browny hit the post . . . it should have been 5-2 before they'd even scored their third."
