Eade hat trick steers Cashmere to victory
Cashmere Technical relegated Christchurch United to the bottom of the Mainland Football Premiers Men's table with a 3-1 victory today.
A hat trick from Dan Eade set the Cashmere sides platform as they dominated their opponents with the solitary goal for Christchurch coming from the boot of Chris Chick.
Cashmere led 2-1 at half time before Eade banged home a penalty shot to increase the winning margin.
A draw for Coastal Spirit against FC Twenty 11 gave Cashmere the chance to move into third position on the overall table in front of Coastal Spirit and just four points behind Nelson Suburbs and Ferrymead Bays who top the table.
The two leading sides will square off tomorrow at Barnett Park in Redcliffs.
A draw was a good enough result for FC Twenty to hold onto the Hurley Challenge Shield.
In today's other men's match Western walked away 2-1 winners over Halswell and jumped from the bottom position to 6th position.
In Premier Women's action, Western claimed a 2-1 victory over Cashmere while a double from Milly Conner gave Halswell a 2-0 win over University.
Competition leaders Coastal Spirit take on FC Twenty 11 in a later match this evening.
