2016 Central League | R3 Weekly Wrap

Stop Out remain top of the Men's Central League, while Wellington United storm back to beat Miramar Rangers.


Wellington United have claimed another major Central League scalp with a come from behind 4-3 win over Miramar Rangers.

The newly-promoted team took an early lead in the game at Newtown Park with a strike in the fifth minute.

The lead was quickly wiped away with an equaliser from Miramar's Mikhail Bredeveldt, who grabbed a second five minutes later.

Miramar pushed further ahead midway through first half with a goal from Joel Wiechern.

Wellington United fought hard to counter the attack and were rewarded with a goal soon after to head into the break down 3-2.

Miramar were unable to capitalise in the second half and a further two goals from Wellington United saw them leave frustrated not to take any points out of the game.

Stop Out continues to impress this season with a 2-1 win against Palmerston North Marist at Hutt Park.

Despite claiming much of the early possession and a number of early attempts on goal they were unrewarded and made to pay as Palmerston North Marist went ahead early in the game.

Andrew Abba and Micky Malivuk led the fightback as Stop Out dominated possession.

The two put together a flowing move with Abba feeding Malivuk, who beat keeper Matthew Borren to even the score.

Malivuk was awarded a penalty after being fouled and made no mistake as Stop Out took the lead and eventually the win.

Lower Hutt picked up their first points of the season with a 4-0 win over local rivals Petone.

The first half saw a goalless affair, as Petone faced up against former goalkeeper Reed Collingwood.

But it was a different story in the second half as a second bookable offence for Petone's Ben Feld saw him sent from the field.

The balance of the game tipped instantly towards Lower Hutt and Petone conceded four goals in the second half, with two to Nathanial Hailemariam and one each to Aaron MacDonald and Omar Guardiola.

It was an evenly matched game at Wakefield Park where Wellington Olympic hosted Western Suburbs.

A penalty to Wests' Ben Sippola the only difference between the two teams after the first 45 minutes.

Olympic came out after halftime with plenty to prove.

A strong defensive effort kept Wests scoreless, and two goals from young striker Gianni Bouzoukis meant Olympic finished 2-1 winners.

The final match of the round saw Napier City Rovers come from two goals down to beat Wairarapa United 3-2 at home.

It was a niggly game early, before Martin Canales and Sam Mason-Smith put Wairarpa 2-0 up after 38 minutes.

Angus Kilkolly scored a vital header from a corner for Napier in first half injury time to give his side the momentum going into the second half.

He would score again two minutes into the second half, before Tom Biss slotted home the winner after 50 minutes.

Paul Ifill was a constant threat for Wairarapa over the final 40 minutes, but couldn't find an equaliser.
