In the over 45’s south A group, nine goals were shared but unfortunately AFC Rockingham lost 4-5 to MUM FC while in the over 45’s south group B, Baldivis went down 4-2 at Curtin University.

The Sunday Review – Amateur Division

There were some very important and crucial wins on Sunday for our Amateur sides. In the Premier league, Peel United got a valuable 3 points as they won 5-3 away at North Perth. This win now pushes them up to 8th in the league with some breathing space from the relegation zone. Another team with a gritty win were Port Kennedy in Division 1. They went 1 up inside the first minute before going down to 10 men just past the half hour mark. They then scored the second with 5 minutes to go before the visitors, Ellenbrook United, got a goal back in injury time but Port held on for the 3 points and swapped places with their opponents. In Division 2, Mandurah City got a 1-0 win against Brozzy SC which pushed them into 10th place while in Division 3, Baldivis lost 3-0 to Geraldton based side La Fiamma to put a dent into their promotion hopes.

The Sunday Review – Women’s Leagues

Although Mandurah City women’s state league side lost 5-0 on Sunday to end their season at the bottom of the table, there is much optimism going around for next season. Head of the women’s football department, Mel Loreto said that the State League side are so young and the experience they have had this year will only benefit them for seasons to come. As for the game itself, Mandurah held their opponents UWA Nedlands at 0-0 for the first half, before the home side showed their dominance in a rousing second half display.

There was no game for Baldivis Districts in the Amateur leagues, so all the attention was on the Metro divisions and what a great weekend it was. In the South Division 1, Port Kennedy drew 3-3 with Perth Saints which made them 8 points clear at the top of the table and one had on the trophy. In the South Division 2, Port Kennedy are also incredibly close to winning that league as well. A 6-2 away win at Leeming Strikers means they 3 points ahead of Kalamunda United but have played a game more. Also in the Division, Rockingham United won the battle of the two local teams, beating Warnbro Strikers 5-2.

The Saturday Review

Mandurah City had one of their biggest attendances for quite some time to witness Leigh Griffiths debut and the vast majority of the crowd were not disappointed. Although Griffiths was the main attraction of the game, it was Craig Barker who stole the show with 2 goals in Mandurah’s 3-0 win over Western Knights. Griffiths however did not disappoint the crowd as he was also was on the scoresheet, just before half time with a shot from outside the box. With the 3 points, Mandurah remain in 3rd place, but now only 2 points behind 2nd placed Knights with only one league game to play.

Before the games were played on Saturday, Olympic Kingsway needed a point to secure the league, but they got all 3 in a 7-0 demolition of Rockingham City. Kingsway were 1 up after just a minute and 3 up after 15. Then in the second half, They scored their 4th just after half time and when Byrne scored his 4th and Kingsway’s 7th of the afternoon, the league title was won.

It’s the same situation in Division 2, as Mandurah City are in 11th but a win against Brozzy should move them out of the relegation area but in Division 3, Baldivis are currently 2nd and 3 points at home against Geraldton based side La Fiamma will get them 9ne step towards promotion.
