Waitakere win football grand final

4:32 pm on 10 April 2011

Minor Premiers Waitakere United have won the New Zealand football Premiership after beating Auckland City 3-2 in a messy but thrilling grand final at Trusts Stadium this afternoon.

The game was locked up at 2-all with full time rapidly approaching before a defensive howler from Auckland City led to an own goal effectively gifting Waitakere their second title in as many years.
