Match Report - Seniors 19th May 2019
A last minute winner by Hay Park United’s Rory Binnie proved to be a hard pill to swallow for CMI Busselton City in their 3-2 defeat last Sunday. Hay Park looked the sharper side in the early passages of play and held a 2-0 lead after just 25 minutes. However youthful striker Patrick Sheehan reduced the arrears with a well- placed shot just before the break. In the second half Busselton increased the tempo and were rewarded when winger Will Jackson evened the scores. They then created a number of scoring opportunities but were unable to find the back of the net before Binnie gave his side the victory.
A nondescript first 15 minutes proved to be detrimental to Busselton City reserves in their 2-1 loss to Hay Park United.

However despite the whole hearted efforts of keeper Jesse Gunnis and defenders Jaxon Rynvis and Luke Tompsett, Busselton were unable to prevent their first loss of the season.
