Dunsborough Town defeated CMI Busselton City in both the Premier League and reserves men’s matches, with two deflections resulting in two goals and two 1-0 heartbreaks for City.

In the Premier League match, both sides traded dominating possession but were unable to turn that superiority into goals.

Busselton looked particularly dangerous going forward through the pace of teenagers Beau Haynes, Will Jackson, Jarod Piekarek and Pat Sheehan.

The breakthrough came after 82 minutes when a deflected shot from Dunsborough’s Kaden Heathcote wrong-footed Busselton keeper Conor Poleykett.

In the final minute, Busselton’s Martin Ryan almost scored an equaliser.

League leaders Dunsborough reserves continued to impress, also taking a 1-0 victory in a hard-fought encounter.

With only four minutes remaining, Dunsborough scored after a free kick ricocheted off the defensive wall, eluding Busselton keeper Jesse Gunnis. The Triple M Busselton City women started with a fine first-half performance away at Forrest Park on Sunday, only to see Dynamos claw back a gutsy 5-3 win.
