Technical puts end to Queenstown’s run

Dunedin Technical proved too much for an in-form Queenstown team on Saturday.

Queenstown came in the match with back-to-back victories, but was toppled 7-1 as it travelled down the road to meet the league leader.

Tech took the lead early, as former Queenstown player Nieve Collin scored the first goal after 14 minutes.

Two minutes later, Ruby Anderson doubled the lead, a fitting tribute to gaining her 50th cap for Tech.

Chelsea Whittaker made it three just before the halftime whistle.

Queenstown pulled one back early into the second half, as Saffron Millar calmly converted her chance into the bottom corner.

Tech then scored two more in quick succession, Collin finishing a second effort and Tabitha Seaton scoring another.

With 10 minutes left of normal time remaining, Anderson slotted home a second before Coral Seath suitably rounded off her time at Tech with its seventh goal.

It was the Varsity derby as the Premiers beat the Seconds 2-1.

Premiers took the lead midway through the first half, through a great effort from Wood.

Early in the second half, Jasmine Prince secured the equaliser for Seconds.

The game remained close before Amy Hislop guaranteed the three points for Premiers with two minutes of extra time gone, putting her clear at the top of the Golden Boot race.

Green Island hosted Mosgiel and both sides created lots of opportunities. Tessa Nicol worked effectively for Green Island in goal and Grace Apuwai-Bishop was a stalwart in the Mosgiel defence.

More chances were created in the second half before Green Island’s aerial threat was rewarded with the only goal of the match coming after 65 minutes, to Kaitlin Michelle.

Mosgiel pushed for an equaliser but the game ended 1-0 to Green Island
