Mandurah City’s state league women’s side continued their excellent recent form with a fine 1-0 win away to Armadale. As will all games this Sunday, the wet, windy and stormy weather played a part but the visitors came away with all three points with a goal from J. Willemse in the 75th minute. The win now puts Mandurah in 6th place on the table and more importantly, 5 points clear from bottom side Stirling Macedonia.
In the amateur league division 1, Peel United suffered heartbreak as South Perth scored in the 90th minute to win 3-2. Peel didn’t get off to the best of starts, conceding in the first minute, but goals from J.Manuel and S.Bradley gave the visitors a 2-1 lead. South Perth then equalised a couple of minutes before half time before the last minute winner. Peel’s lead at the top of the ladder was cut down to 2 pints, due to North Beach’s extraordinary result away to Forrestfield, winning 6-5. Goals galore in Perth Kennedy’s game away to Southern Spirt as well. PK were 4-1 up at half time with goals from K.Green, R.Hissey(2) and M. Warren only to be pegged back and eventually drawing 5-5. In division 2, Mandurah City came from behind to rescue a 2-2 draw against Carramar Shamrock Rovers. Division 3 side Baldivis took the long trip up to Geraldton on Saturday night but came away with a creditable 1-1 draw, while there was joy and beers to be had in division 4, as Rockingham City celebrated their first win of the season beating Swan Valley 3-2.
