Metro Round Up

The curse of the podcast may have struck again as since we focused on the Baldivis Metro team a few weeks ago, their season has gone slightly downhill and Sunday was no exception as they lost 3-2 at home to South Perth United.

Things were not any better in the South Division 1, as all three of our local sides suffered defeat. Mandurah went down 5-3 at Queens Park, AFC Rockingham lost 4-1 at home to Curtin University and Port Kennedy lost 5-3 at Victoria Park.

It wasn’t much better in the South Division 2 as Port Kennedy lost 4-1 at home to Sporting Warriors but there was a draw for Baldivis whole Peel United won 3-1 at Curtin University.

South Division 3had a win for Peel United as they beat Armadale 4-3 and in South Division 4, AFC Rockingham beat Queens Park 2-1

Mandurah City’s new signing for the masters team, Pete Taylor, was instrumental in Sunday’s game as they thrashed Belmont Villa 9-3. In the other game in the South Division 2 saw Baldivis win 4-3 away at Forrestfield United.

AFC Rockingham in the over 45’s South A division had a comfortable 3-0 win against Fremantle City, while in the B division Baldivis had a bye week.

Women’s League Round Up

Mandurah City in the Women’s State League can hold their heads up high from Sundays result as they travelled to top of the table UWA Nedlands and came away with an excellent 2-2 draw. Also drawing 2-2 and also against UWA Nedlands was Baldivis Districts in the Amateur League.

In the Metro Leagues, there was plenty of goals around. Port Kennedy won bragging rights in the days local derby, beating Warnbro Strikers 10-0, Rockingham United beat Fremantle City 9-1 but it wasn’t a good day for Mandurah City as they went down 8-0 at home to Kalamunda United.

In the South Division 3, Rockingham United went down 5-0 away at Aubin Grove.

Mixed Results But Plenty Of Goals In The Amateur Divisions

It was a mixed bag of results for our amateur sides on Sunday, but the games produced plenty of goals.

In the premier league, Peel United had a great 4-2 win away at Wembley Downs which also meant they went above them in the table to 7th place.

Division 1 saw the same result, but unfortunately, it was Hamersley Rovers who came out victors against Port Kennedy. The highest amount of goals scored was in Division 2 where the final score was Ballajura 6 Mandurah City 5, while in Division 3, it was another close game with Baldivis beating Forrestfield United 4-3. In Division 4, Warnbro made the long trip to Alkimos and came away on the losing side by 4 goals to 1.

Mandurah and Rockingham Both Hit Form Leading Up To Next Week’s Derby

Both Mandurah and Rockingham have run into some winning form leading into next Saturday’s crunch derby game.

Rockingham’s relegation fears were eased as were never in any trouble against bottom of the league UWA Nedlands with Mukwevho scoring both goals in this easy 2-0 victory.

Mandurah also won by the same scoreline as they beat Fremantle City. This was a tense and tight affair, but second half goals from Shaked and Van Dieken saw the Dolphins home.

These results now mean that Mandurah sit 3rd in the table, 7 points behind leaders Olympic Kingsway, while Rockingham moved up to 9th.

In the other results, Rockingham reserves won 5-1 and Mandurah reserves won 2-0, while in the under 18’s, Mandurah won 5-3 while the Rockingham game was postponed.

City’s Seasons Still Alive

Both Mandurah and Rockingham City kept their season’s alive and kicking on Saturday as both teams registered vital wins at the opposite ends of the table.

Rockingham Started off the best of the two teams, going into a 2-0 lead after just 7 minutes, but when MUM FC got a goal back, and then Rockingham went down to 10 men, it looked for a while that the home side were going to struggle for the rest of the game. However, bravely City fought and held on to the 2-1 win and a valuable 3 points.

Mandurah were involved in a top of a table clash against league leaders Olympic Kingsway and went into a 2-0 lead but 2 goals in 5 minutes saw the visitors level the game at 2-2 and they must have been thinking they had got a valuable point from the game. Mandurah had other ideas and scored the winner with just 8 minutes go and keeps there promotion hopes alive.

After all the results from the day, Mandurah are in 4th place, while Rockingham are in 11th.

The other results from the day were:

Reserves, Mandurah won 3-2, Rockingham won 4-0.

Under 18’s, Mandurah lost 4-5, Rockingham won 4-0

Normal(ish) Service Resumes

Apologies to everyone for not providing our regular updates to the local football news recently, I succumbed to the dreaded Covid 19 virus, which laid me low for some time. I’d also like to thank those who took time to message me to see how I was and the offers to get any shopping while in my period of isolation. Fortunately I am much better now and for those of you that currently have the symptoms, I wish you all a speedy recovery.

Now back to more important things, and this post is dedicated to Saturday’s State League action. Once again, Mandurah City are involved in 5he match of the day as they host league leaders Olympic Kingsway. After last Saturday’s shock defeat to Dianella, The Dolphins have to get back to winning ways if they want to challenge for the title. The visitors are currently 10 points ahead of Mandurah and anything but a win for the home side is vital to keep up the promotion bid.

At the other end of the table, Rockingham City are on a poor run of form which has seen them slip into the relegation zone and on Saturday, host MUM FC who are currently mid way in the table. A win for the visitors would mean Rockingham could drop to the bottom of the table, depending on the UWA Nedlands result and be one of the favourites to drop into Division 2. Rockingham will also be without captain Ryan Kennedy for this game, after his sending off last weekend.

Both games kick off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

Mandurah March On, Rockingham Relegation Fears?

Another Saturday and another contrasting set of results for our sides. In the match of the day, Mandurah City came back from 1-0 down to beat Western Knights 2-1 and leap frog the Knights into second place of the ladder. Meanwhile, Rockingham City travelled to top of the table Olympic Kingsway and only a Jordan Rhodes goal was the highlight of the game for the visitors as they went down 4-1.

In the reserves, Rockingham City won 2-0 while Mandurah City lost 3-2 and in the under 18’s Rockingham lost 1-0 and Mandurah drew 1-1.
