Team Wellington defend their title

Team Wellington have defended their Stirling Sports Premiership title by defeating Auckland City 2-1 in an entertaining final tonight at QBE Stadium in Auckland.

The Jose Figueira-coached side, who upset the six-time champions with a late comeback to win the final 4-2 at the same venue last year, earned a hard-fought victory over the minor premiers with two goals from Ben Harris, one at the start of each half.

“It’s always good to score goals but it’s more important to get the win,” the match-winner said.
