Old Boys claimed first blood against last year's Southland Football Donald Gray cup winners Southend United with a comfortable 3-0 win at Bain Park in Invercargill.

The game was on an even keel until shortly before halftime when Southend failed to clear a corner and James Tucker was on hand to slot the ball home for a 1-nil lead to Old Boys.

Old Boys made it two just minutes into the second spell when their leading scorer Callum Smith volleyed in the first of his two goals.

Southend was clearly stunned by the goals but kept up their challenge until Smith pounced for his second and his teams third.

The final 15 minutes was a case of Southend pushing forward to get something from the game and Old Boys being determined to register their third defensive clean sheet from its three games played.Which they did.

In the other game played at the ILT Turf Waihopai and Thistle fought out a 2-2 draw.

Waihopai struck the first goal when Carl Henderson put them ahead 1-nil.

Thistle retaliated and by half-time goals from Dylan Meehan and Jesse Martin had them ahead 2-1.

Both sides began to falter in fitness as the game went on and almost on the stroke of full-time Matthew McDowell netted the equaliser for Waihopai.

How much food do you waste?

None - what we don't eat goes to the pigs

Not much. We have a few leftovers - most of it gets eaten the next day

More than I'd like. I'm always throwing away veggies I haven't used
