📝 CENTRAL UNITED FC TAKE GRIP ON SECOND SPOTCentral United FC have a firm grip on second place in the NRF Championship after a 4-1 win over Te Atatu at the Croatian Cultural Society on Saturday. Three first half goals by Sam Lloyd and Ben Ruffell cancelled out a Rhys Caple opener to hand coach Paul Posa a useful 3-1 advantage at the break. A late goal by Daniel Backman sealed victory and put pressure on league leaders Papatoetoe after they defeated Lynn-Avon United 3-2 in West Auckland. In a keenly contested encounter, Te Atatu started well with Caple's goal his 74th in his 101st for the visitors and that moment sparked United into action The shock of conceding spurred on Central and from a determined Martin Isgigaki interception in midfield the ball spilled to Alex McGregor as the clever midfielder threaded a beautifully weighted pass between Te Atatu’s static back four. The ever-present Lloyd easily outpaced the back four before drawing the keeper, rounding him in one movement and calmly passing the ball into the empty net. A great reaction followed as Lloyd was swamped by relieved team mates. The tide had turned and Central began to look dominant for the next 5 minutes.Then followed the games pivotal moment. Keeper James Dowsett, who is never far from controversy, was adjudged to have brought down the Te Atatu striker. Dowsett protested his innocence but was shown a yellow card. Te Atatu had missed a penalty in the first round match and this was very much a case of deja vu as Dowsett not only saved the initial shot but bravely dived to recover the second.Central were them awarded TWO consecutive penalties in 9 minutes of madness. Both were for rash challenges and both were justified. Ben Ruffell expertly dispatched both kicks in the top right and bottom left corners of the net to leave Te Atatu frustrated and Central buoyant at halftime.The second half meandered along and was only illuminated by a great run from Jordan Ishigaki which culminated in his fine shot unluckily striking the base of the right hand post before rebounding to safety. Dan Backman secured a comprehensive win in the last minute converting a nice header following an excellent header back across goal by Brandon James. 4-1 to “Yellow, Yellow” as the bucket man would say. Make no mistake this was a resounding victory over a fellow title challenger.
