The Bay SportsMed Youth Team has returned from Auckland with another point in the bag after their third draw in five games.
The team went behind early but Xavier Pratt levelled the scores midway through the half and the sides went to the break with the score at 1-1.
Jama Boss, with his second goal in two games, pushed WaiBOP ahead on the hour but a victory wasn’t to be as Waitakere took their opportunity to level the scores with just under twenty minutes left. The match finished at 2-2.
The draw saw WaiBOP stay in fourth but we’re only two points behind second placed Auckland United. Auckland City are run-away leaders with a 100% record at the halfway stage.
WaiBOP United youth squad for the game: Danyon Drake, Ruben Parker-Hanks, Joe Nottage, Shaun Morgan, Nathan Kinney, Liam Williams, Jevon Williams, Jama Boss, Jonathan Viviani, Jacob Robb, Alfie Rogers, Xavier Pratt, Dylan Bull, Matt Wheeler, Scott Hillier, Wade Moloney.
