Pic 3, Poverty Bay’s Phoenix Battin gets some close attention from a Hawke’s Bay Futures player in a Monday game.

Poverty Bay lost 1-0 to Wellington yesterday morning but bounced back with a 2-1 win over Horowhenua — Kapene and Gloria Allen the goalscorers.

It placed them second in Pool A.

They moved into round-robin tier play today, with Poverty Bay facing Hawke’s Bay this morning and Pool B winners Wairarapa in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, Poverty Bay u13 boys topped their pool at the Curtis Cup in Napier yesterday.

William Matthews continued his impressive goal-scoring form with two in a 5-1 win over Wellington Futures — their fourth victory from four matches.

John Broad, Charlie Henry and Matt McKendry also scored.

The PB boys racked up 26 goals in their four pool games and conceded just three.

They played Taranaki this morning and Manawatu in the afternoon in round-robin tier games.
