Tom Jackson hat-trick assures Team Wellington of spot in national league semifinals

Tom Jackson's hat-trick propelled Team Wellington to a comfortable win over Tasman United and a spot in the Stirling Sports Premiership semifinals.

Nothing short of victory was expected on Sunday, but the wild weather lashing the country threw a spanner in the works.

The game had to be shifted from a water-logged David Farrington Park to the artificial turf at Petone Memorial Park, but Wellington were still too good for Tasman, running out 5-1 winners.
