Tech 1 Vs Southland 1
The Prems played away in Invercargil against Southland on the artificial turf. Tech were up 1-0 with a goal to Tim McClennan, however Southland were able to claim a late equaliser, leaving the game to finish with a score of 1-1.
Tech 6 vs Mosgiel 4
Goals a plenty at Tahuna Park as the Fletcher Cup side played Mosgiel. Aaron Burgess opened the scoring with two goals in the first half, with one spotting the keeper out and chipping over his head. A half time score of 2-1 up for Tech, saw them come out of the changing rooms and slot another 3 goals just after the break. A Rhys run and cut into the box saw him taken down for a penalty taken by Burgess, a Brick cross onto a Burgess head, a Tom Houghton cross into Burgess and a very nice top of the box volley by Luke. Tech were 6-2 up. Mosgiel hadn’t finished though, getting two late goals to end the game 6-4 in Tech’s favour.
Player of the Day Rhys Bailey
Tech 6 vs University A 0
Running around early on in search of wayward corner flags did not detour the girls in their encounter. It was one way traffic for Tech today, 2-0 up at half time and seeing a further 4 goals find the net saw them take the game away 6-0. Graeme was very happy with the energy of the game POD, Shontelle working hard in the midfield allowed the girls to take this result. Goals shared around 1x to Mikayla Gray, 1 Kirsty Hayr, 2 to Shontelle Smith and Kate Guildford netting 2 goals, taking her to Tech’s leading goal scorer for the women.
Player of the day going to Shontelle Smith
Tech 3 vs University C 2
The girls found a bit of shape and space on the field today. On the back foot after University netted a goal. Before the end of the half Kate put 1 away to tie the score up going into the half. Talks at half time saw both teams come out of the gates wanting the win. University again opened the scoring but minutes later Tech equalized through Anita. A penalty about half way through saw Kate step up again and put away a free kick.
Both teams battling to the final whistle saw Tech take away their first points for the season.
Player of the day Sinead
Tech 3 vs Balclutha 4
TOP OF THE TABLE CLASH. Both teams in form and looking for the points. However, young man Josh from Balclutha picked up POD for them after netting the 4 goals. Tech were down 2 nil after a short time but clawed there way back in and at one stage were leading the game 3-2.
Both teams giving everything on the day but congratulations to Balclutha and we look forward to visiting you down south.
Player of the day Elliott Gibbins
Tech 3 vs Mornington 3
Tough day at the office. Better numbers this week but still needing to go for last minute player hunts. The team however were looking down the barrel of 3-0 down after 20 minutes. A rejig to the line up and that was it. No more goals from Mornington and a few stunners from Daniel Anfield saw Tech claw back 3-3. A very niggly match, with some very dubious tackles and comments made the game get overshadowed.
Player of the day Jack Griffiths
Tech 1 vs Northern 2
The Colts were away to top of the table Northern at The Gardens. Hard games bring out the best in the team and we certainly played like it. Up 1-0 at half time (great goal Callum Proctor), but with only one sub, the second half was always going to be a testy one. Unfortunately our old legs ran out of steam and they got the 2 goals needed. Well done Colts for a top effort.
We send our thoughts to the Northern player down at A&E getting some special attention to an injured area.
POD – Callum Proctor.
Dick of the Day – Rochey
Tech 2 Vs Roslyn 0
Up at the small field at Ellis Park saw the Frotters put their first points on the table and to do it with a win is fantastic.
The team managed to work together and play some solid football, first goal of the game comes to returning player Richard Bourne.
Player of the day, Ian Davis
