Busselton City Triple M Ladies remained in premiership contention after upsetting second-placed Australind 3-1 on Sunday at Churchill Park.

Early in the game the home side had plenty of possession but lacked the drive to win the ball in their attacking half.

As a result, Australind scored after 35 minutes despite the best efforts of City keeper Ashleigh Charlton.

At the break, coaches Therese Charlton and Robert Gibbons asked their team to increase their pressure and it did not take long for midfielder Tui Clarke to deliver a perfect corner which curled into the net, leaving the Australind defence in disbelief.

Shortly afterwards, striker Chenaye Wright and player-coach Charlton found the back of the net to give Busselton a well-deserved win.

CMI Busselton City were upset 3-2 by a physical and competitive Bunbury United.

Busselton’s defence got caught square in the opening minutes and United were able to score from close range.

United increased their lead in the second spell through striker Ryan Risden before Martin Ryan got one back after some impressive work by defender Rob Seia.

But United replied almost immediately after Risden scored from a twice-taken penalty kick.

Busselton City reserves were in control formost of their game when they recorded a 3-0 victory over United.

Patrick Tarrant, Jasper Grono and Callum Bull were the scorers.

This Sunday the men’s teams head to Hay Park while the ladies venture down to Margaret River.
