Premier women shine for City
The Sportspower Busselton City Premier women’s team continue to dominate the South West Soccer Association competition after recording a resounding 15-1 win over Football Margaret River on Saturday.
Coach Rob Gibbons was disappointed with his side’s first-half performance despite leading 4-0 at half-time. In the second half, Busselton demolished the home team with a much-improved second spell, with Chenaye Wright, Asha McClurg, Siobhan Longmore and Ariana Dawson scoring 12 goals between them.
Other scorers included Eliza Sheehan, Keeley Milner and Claudia Duane.
In a top-of-the-table ladies’ reserves clash, Busselton made the long trip to Balingup to play undefeated Blackwood.
Therese Charlton got her side off to a good start with a well-finished goal but a penalty awarded to Blackwood changed the match dramatically and they raced away to a 5-1 lead.
Chelsea Braam then grabbed a late consolation goal as Busselton suffered their first loss of the season. Despite dominating possession during the second half, CMI Busselton City Premier men’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Dunsborough Towners.
Conceding a couple of soft goals proved costly for the men’s reserves team, who lost 4-0 in their encounter with Dunsborough.
The Woody Nook division two side suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to Dynamos.
