Paroa continued their strong start to the main championship with a win over Grey United, scoring five goals for the second week running. The game was all square at half time, but not long after the break Judah Wate broke the deadlock with a fine finish. Shortly after Anton Merkushev put a left foot volley into the top corner to make it 2. Grey United had a chance to get back into the game, only for James McLean to put his penalty wide of the post. From that point on, it was all Paroa, with Merkushev getting his second, among with goals for Argyle Dempster and Harvey Rubbo for the 5-0 win.
Westport Cos picked themselves up after two losses in a row to narrowly beat Marist 2-1 at Coronation park. Kye Thomson scored for Marist, but it was Dan Maloney who yet again got his name on the scoresheet, this time with a brace. That brings Maloney’s total to 10 for the season, just one behind Paroa’s Ben Anderson who has 11.
Grey United once again host Westland United at Arthur Fong in the 12.30pm kick off. Marist face of against Paroa in the 2.30pm kick off.
