Wairarapa United were brought back down to Earth on Saturday at Endeavour Park as Western Suburbs put five goals away in an eight goal thriller.


In the game of the round, Wairarapa were looking for their fourth win on the trot while Western Suburbs were recalibrating after their 2-0 loss to Wellington Olympic a week prior.

Declan Edge’s young Wests side started strongly as they created a chance in the first minute, a cross from Mikey Faber finding Tinashe Marowa who made no mistake from in front.

With Wests up 1-0, Wairarapa began to get into the game with some composed possession but two goals in three minutes from Ahmad Mohammadi turned the game inside out.

On the half hour mark, Wairarapa United pulled one back only to have it immediately cancelled out through a great strike to Juan Chang. Paul Ifill got on the scoresheet with a sublime volley before the teams went into the sheds at halftime with the game sitting at 4-2 to Wests.

After a first half that was like a highlights package, the crowd were hoping to see more of the same but both teams employed a sturdier defence in the second half. Callum McCowatt scored the fifth for Wests after 58 minutes before Wairarapa grabbed a late consolation goal to finish the game at 5-3.

At Hutt Park, Stop Out made a huge statement of intent against Wellington Olympic. The Greeks were flying high after their win over Wests last weekend while Stop Out grabbed their first points of the year against Tawa last weekend however Olympic went into the game as firm favourites.

Stop Out looked sharp on attack, creating a number of chances that were diffused by Olympic ‘keeper James McPeake but the home side were first to break the deadlock with  well-taken header to Luke Grindlay.

After the break, Stop Out flew out of the blocks as they increased their lead through a brace to Martin Packer and one to Micky Malivuk. Packer’s second goal was a terrific curling effort that left the home fans cheering as the referee blew his whistle for full-time and a 4-0 result that many would not have expected.
