Allan Pearce then got Waitakere on the board in the 22nd minute from a corner kick by Zane Sole. Teenage winger Ryan De Vries grabbed a double in the 35th and 51st minute to earn him- self man of the match and Waitakere the vic- tory. Both sides will meet again at Fred Taylor Park this Sunday at 2pm for their O-League clash.
