Waikato FC suffered their second consecutive ASB Premiership hammering today with 10 men, going down 5-0 to Canterbury United.

The hosts at Ngaruawahia's Centennial Park had lost at home 4-1 to Team Wellington the previous week, when they finished with 10 players after defender David Parkinson was sent off on the stroke of halftime.

Today, Waikato lost defender Mikey Kramer in the 55th minute in similar circumstances, gaining a second yellow card when bringing down Canterbury striker Russell Kamo with his side trailing 1-0.

Aaron Clapham duly converted the spot-kick to double the visitors' lead, after Kamo had opened the scoring with a header from a corner after 18 minutes.

With the home side falling into disarray in the latter stages, Canterbury grabbed three further goals through Darren White and substitute Ashley Welborn (two).

The defeat left Waikato without a point from four matches while Canterbury's third win ensured they would stay in the top half of the table.
