Text:The Brooklyn United team (in black and red) celebrate with Wellington 1 (in yellow) after the tough final A Wellington team has beaten another local side to win gold at the women’s five-a-side soccer competition at the AsiaPacific Outgames. Brooklyn United just edged out the feisty Wellington 1 team in a 1-0 victory at Te Whaea Park in Newtown this afternoon. The competition was earlier cut down to just three teams due to issues with player numbers, initially because some Wellington-based players are in Christchurch with Red Cross but also due to injuries sustained during play yesterday. The level of competition went up a notch today with all the teams playing their best football, making for a tough competition. Visiting side the Sydney Flying Bats took out the bronze medal and all teams will receive their medals at a ceremony at the ground at 4pm. Sticking to the games’ clear spirit of Aussie/Kiwi mateship, at 3pm a friendly seven-a-side match will be played: New Zealand versus the The World, where overseas-born Wellington players will join forces with the Aussies to take on the New Zealanders.
