Waikato beat Phoenix A

5:57 am on 16 November 2010

Two goals in the final six minutes from Jason Hicks gave Waikato FC a memorable 2-1 victory over Wellington Phoenix 'A' in the first match of the ASB Challenge football Series at Hamilton's Fred Jones Park.

Mirjan Pavlovic opened the scoring for the Phoenix in the 68th minute, before Hicks scored twice in the last 10 minutes.

Team Wellington are next to take on Wellington Phoenix A in the Challenge Series on November 23 two days after welcoming a buoyant Waikato FC to David Farrington Park in week five of the ASB Premiership.
