Chenneour, The Penalty Champ!

Jacob Chenneour was the hero in Saturday’s under 18’s cup semi final for Rockingham City against Whitfords City with a hat trick of penalty saves. Rockingham of division 1 were favourites to win this tie against their division 3 opponents, but it was far from plain sailing as the hosts went into a 2-0 lead at half time with Rockingham having a mountain to climb. But climb that mountain they did! Despite having 2 men sent off in the second half, the visitors got the victory in the 90th minute with a winner from Coustley, means that Rockingham City will play Ellenbrook United in the final on Saturday 20th August at a venue to be announced.

The Sunday Review – Amateur League

Peel United suffered one of their worst defeats of the season on Sunday as they went down 4-0 away at Kelmscott Roos. They were 3 down at half time before Doug Meyer scored an own goal to seal Peel’s day to forget. Port Kennedy in Division 1 had an even more miserable day, going down 7-0 away at North Beach. Mandurah City had much better day with an Aiden McCluckie double helping them to a 3-0 win over Subiaco but Warnbro Strikers continued the trend of heavy defeats, going down 8-0 at Swan Valley.

Only The 8 For The Dolphins

Mandurah City scored only the 8 goals on Saturday, with Joe O’Brien reminding head coach of his goalscoring power, getting 5 of the goals. With rumours circulating that the Dolphins are looking to sign ex Celtic and Scottish international Leigh Griffiths, O’Brien quest to win the league’s golden boat significantly increased. Opponents Quinns were never in the game and this defeat now means they are bottom of the table, while Mandurah remain in 4th, but now only 3 points behind Fremantle City.

Rockingham City played out a 1-1 draw with fellow mid table side Forrestfield United. The home side took and early lead before going down to 10 men. Shaun Mukwevho got the equaliser for City, but they could not press home their extra man advantage and had to settle for the draw. Rockingham remain in 6th place after the result.

The Saturday Preview

Another Saturday and another weekend the fixture computer hasn’t been kind to us. This week, both our state league teams are away. The longest trip of the day is Mandurah City, who travel all the way to out of form Quinns FC. The home side have slipped down the table in recent weeks and Mandurah will be favourites to take all 3 points.

Rockingham City have a shorter journey, having to only travel to Forrestfield United. This match sees 7th play 6th but Rockingham are one of the form teams right now and should feel confident of getting all the points.

Both games kick off at 3pm.

The Sunday Review – Masters

All eyes and thoughts were at Singleton on Sunday as AFC Rockingham played F.C. Shoalwaterfor the first ever playing of the Stephen Matter Cup. During the week, there was some sad news that Stephen had passed away and as he had previously played for both teams, it was only fitting that a cup was named in his honour. We would like to pass on our thoughts to his friends and family. Over 100 people gathered to watch the game in which F.C. Shoalwater won 5-2.

Steve Mateer

Other results from the masters league were Port Kennedy beating F.C. Shoalwater 2-1 in the premier division while Baldivis lost 2-1 to Leeming Strikers in south division 2 and in the over 45’s group B, Baldivis lost 6-3 to Leeming Strikers.

The Sunday Review- Metro Leagues

Baldivis of the premier division got back to winning ways on Sunday with a good 3-1 away win at Cockburn City and equally impressive was AFC Rockingham, who defeated Fremantle City 4-0 in the south division 1. Other results in the south division 1 were Mandurah City losing 5-2 at home to MUM FC and Port Kennedy winning 2-1 at home to Curtin University. Result of the day came in south division 2 where top of the table Sporting Warriors visited Peel United and were soundly thrashed 7-0 while Port Kennedy won 3-1 at Perth Saints. Peel United’s south division 3 side didn’t fair as well, going down 5-0 away at Lynwood United and in the south division 4, Murray District Rangers lost 4-0 away at Beeliar Spirit.

The Sunday Review – Women’s League

Mandurah City broke their recent losing streak on Sunday as they came back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with Sorrento in the State League. With Baldivis Districts not playing their Amateur League game until Thursday, all attention was in the Metro divisions and Port Kennedy of South Division 1 did not disappoint anyone was they beat Brooklands 18-0. Their south Division 2 side were also amongst the goals, beating Victoria Park 7-0, while Warnbro Strikers beat Mandurah City 3-1 and Rockingham United went down 2-0 at Kalamunda United. It wasn’t Rockingham United’s day at all as their south Division 3 side lost 10-0 against Fremantle City.

The Sunday Review -Amateur Division

A goal in the very first minute of the game was enough for Maddington White City to get the victory over Peel United in the premier division of the Amateur League. The bad set of results didn’t end their either as Port Kennedy lost 5-1 to Maccabi in Division 1, Mandurah City lost 6-0 to Fremantle City in Division 2 and Warnbro Strikers went down 11-3 to Joondanna Blues. There was some good news however, as Baldivis beat Noranda City 1-0 in Division 3.

Another 6 Point Saturday

Rockingham City continued their fine recent form with a gritty 1-0 win against Joondalup United. The game itself won’t be one that will stick in the memories of those who were there, but a 78th minute goal from Taylor Carter was all that was needed to get the three points.

Mandurah City almost secured a top four spot on Saturday as they beat a young and improving Subiaco by 4 goals to 2.

The football fixture computer has not been kind to us again this weekend as both our local sides are at home again.

Looking to maintain their top 4 spot are Mandurah City who host 10th placed Subiaco. The visitors are a very young team who are learning fast this season and getting better. The game also welcomes back from Mandurah City club president Peter Koulizos, now part of the Subiaco boardroom.

Rockingham City are currently in 9th place but a win against Joondalup United could see them jump as high as 6th after all the results are in. Rockingham are unbeaten in their last 5 games and will hope his run continues.
