Waitakere go top

5:46 pm on 11 January 2009

Waitakere United have moved to the top of the New Zealand Football Championship following a

2-0 win over Team Wellington, at Douglas Field in Auckland.

Both side struggled to find their rhythm in the opening exchanges of the match, which was a repeat of last year's grand final.

Second half goals to Benji Totori and Danko Koprivcic was enough to seal the win.

Waitakere move to 13 points, with Auckland City, Waikato FC, Young Heart Manawatu and Hawke's Bay United all a point back.
