Magical Mandurah, Rockingham Rejoice

It may have been a cold and wet Saturday afternoon, but it was raining goals at our 2 state league games played and also produced a double win for the second week running.

Mandurah City continued their fine goal scoring run with a 7-1 demolition of Quinns FC. Two goals from Joe O’Brien and Hamish Van Dieken helped the home side to this comprehensive victory.

An excellent Robbie Galvin free kick helped Rockingham City to 3 points against Forrestfield United. Rockingham were a goal down and out played in the first half, but a good half time team talk from interim coach Darren Donnachie was enough for the home team to completely dominate the second half.

In the reserves competition, Mandurah City won 5-3 but Rockingham City lost 2-0 while in the under 18’s, Mandurah City won 5-0 while Rockingham City lost 3-2

The Saturday Preview

Following last week’s action where both our local sides were away from home in the state league, the fixture computer has now made both teams play at home this weekend.

Rockingham City will be hoping to carry on from where they left off last week with a game against Forrestfield United. The visitors are only 2 points ahead of Rockingham so a win for the home side will defiantly get them to a nice mid table position. Both teams seem to be struggling to find the back of the net so far this season, with only 13 goals scored between them in the 11 games they have played.

Mandurah City however, currently don’t have a problem with scoring, after a series of scoring 4 every week, they went one better and scored 5 against Subiaco last Saturday. Sixth placed Quinns FC are the visitors on Saturday and although they are 4 points behind Mandurah, they do have 2 games in hand. A win for either team will enhance their chances of promotion this season.

Both games kick off at 3pm and entry is free to both games.
