Visitors dominate football

By Jared Smith

Visiting teams dominated the medal tallies as the 11-a-side football module of the NZMG wrapped up at Wembley Park on early Sunday evening.

In the women's division, BB Boom were champions over Wellington Recon and the Misfits from Palmerston North.

Former Wanganui Athletic player Tanja Grunwald picked up the golden boot for most goals - an honour she narrowly missed in 2015 to then teammate Ella Wiebe.

It was also a good Men's 35 grade performance for Wellington as the Capital Hearts won the gold ahead of Napier Masters and Olympic FC.

The golden boot was shared between two players - an S Saurin (Havelock North) and D Sianashvilli (Olympic FC).

Napier City Old Stars claimed the Men's 45 gold, ahead of Kiwi Master and local team Cosmos, with Jason Bishop of Napier City Rovers getting the golden boot.

In the Men's 50 division, ICPP won the gold with their leading player Pat Forrester getting the golden boot, while Cosmos had to settle for silver ahead of Tawa 50'3.
