The second round of football kicked off yesterday with the Grassroots and U18 men’s division matches. Today will be the first of this week’s mid-week games, hosted by Puaikura FC at Raemaru Park, at 4pm.

The BSP U15 Boys and the Islander Senior Women’s division matches will be held this afternoon, where Puaikura FC will take on visitors Matavera FC.

The Matavera women’s side came away with their first win of season, against Nikao last week and will be wanting to add anther three points to their tally.

Puaikura’s fierce ladies were put to the test against Avatiu last week and lost the match. This motivated team of footballers will be aiming to bounce back this afternoon at home.

Tomorrow, the BSP U15 Girls and the Tower Insurance Premier Men’s teams will be battling for maximum points. Matavera and Puaikura’s premier men went down in the opening round.

Matavera who played well despite the loss to defending champions Nikao last week will be looking to repeat their performance against former champions Puaikura.
