Wakefield take point against Richmond Athletic


Bottom of the table Wakefield earned a gutsy point in the Nelson Bays Football competition after holding league leaders Richmond Athletic 1-1 at Jubilee Park.

The visitors converted a penalty chance after five minutes and held the advantage until midway through the second half when Richmond’s Nat Payn launched a speculative lob shot which snick under the crossbar.

Suburbs Seals dealt to FC Nelson 3-1 thanks to goals from Hadleigh Coffey, Davi Maciel and a top corner stunner from player/coach Brendan Hodgson.

Tahuna and Nelson Suburbs played out a 1-1 draw at Saxton Fields while the Marlborough Mariners kept themselves in the title race with a 3-1 win over Nelson College First XI.
