City rain goals
Not even a torrential downpour last Sunday afternoon could spoil the party for Busselton City, with all five league teams returning to the winners’ circle.
CMI Busselton City men’s Premier League team were always on top of their Hay Park opponents with a 3-0 victory.
Defender Jack Garnham’s organisational ability along with the work ethic of Rich Amey ensured a much-improved performance after last week’s surprise loss.
A first-half goal to Mat Evans was followed by another from the reliable Ian Feakes before the highly regarded Craig Barker completed the scoring just before the final whistle.
Both Sportspower Busselton City women’s teams recorded notable wins against last season’s premiers, Hay Park United.
The reserves team, a mix of young, new and returning players won with a convincing 7-2 score on the board.
The unstoppable combination of strikers Chenaye Wright and Emily Killick scored six goals, with Molly Hawkins adding the seventh.
Defenders Jayne Gardiner and Claire Marchand-Johns impressed, along with midfielders Banita Stewart and the very promising Finlay Godden.
In the Premier League game, City continued their dominance of the competition with their third successive win.
By half-time, Busselton were 7-0 up with goals from Asha McClurg, Siobhan and Ariana Longmore, Keeley Milner and Therese Charlton. They eased up in the second half with Chenaye Wright scoring twice, while Claude Duane and Chelsea Braam made the final score 11-0.
It was the third double-digit win in a row for the premier women who look increasing powerful with their attacking formation. Busselton City men’s reserves can thank defender Cam Goldsmith for their 1-0 win over Hay Park, when he scored from a set piece.
The reserves are unbeaten but were guilty at times of squandering numerous opportunities to find the back of the net.
Both Jaxon and Damon Rynvis gave of their best while defender Cam Best looked assured in his first game of the season.
The men’s division 2 side proved to be too strong in the second spell for Dynamos, running out 5-2 winners.
This Sunday, all Busselton City teams return to their Churchill Park home to host Dalyellup Park Rangers.
