Winning streak ends Top softball club side Auckland United faltered against reigning champions Waitakere Bears over the weekend after leading by two runs going into the last stages of the match. The Bears hit a home run to win 4-3 and end United's eight-match winning streak. Meanwhile, Mt Albert Ramb- lers, determined to regain the Auckland and national title it lost last season, kept on track with a 7-4 tiebreaker win against the inexperienced North Harbour Roosters side. After a four-run burst in the first inning, Ramblers looked like easy winners but the Roosters also scored four runs during the match. It took Ramblers until the eighth inning to secure victory. Eden-Roskill lost its two matches over the weekend, to Howick 3-2 and United 4-1. This weekend the men's sides will play in the Chote tournament at Warren Freer Park. Leaders Ramblers' women needed a tiebreaker to crack Western Magpies' defence, win- ning 1-0. Metro, the most improved side in the city, were expected to down bottom team Howick to maintain a long winning run. But without ace pitcher Megan Farrell, they went down 5-4. Scoreless draw doesn't help cause By JEREMY RUANE Tangled up: Otago's Tim Horner competes with Auckland's Adam Dickinson for the ball at Kiwitea St on Sunday. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK A blustery wind hampered Auck- land City's efforts against Otago United in their ASB Premiership clash at Kiwitea St on Sunday, with both teams failing to score during the match. The wind made quality techni- cal play decidedly difficult to achieve. Chances were few and far between in the first spell, with Otago enjoying the better opportunities when they did materialise. City slowly but surely gained the upper hand in the second spell with Stu Kelly and Adam McGeorge both going close. Then Adam Dickinson and Daniel Morgan were both thwarted by the goalpost to frus- trate the home team even more. Fourth-placed City now lie seven points behind leaders Wai- takere United and face a must- win visit to third-placed Hawkes Bay United on Sunday. Meanwhile, Auckland's hopes of making the semifinals of the ASB Youth League were dealt a severe blow by Waikato FC at Kiwitea St. The visitors won 4-3. City's youngsters face a must- win clash against an unbeaten Waitakere United on Sunday.
