Match Report - Seniors 23rd June 2019
Played in inclement conditions on Sunday CMI Busselton and Dalyellup shared the honours in a scoreless draw. Whilst the rain and wind spoilt the game for the purists, both sides endeavoured to move the ball into the attacking third at every opportunity. Busselton held the upper hand in the first half with opportunities to Ash Pemberton and Rob Seia being denied by Dalyellup keeper Muhsem Kazemi. The locals were most unlucky just prior to half time when an intelligent free kick by impressive midfielder Will Jackson crashed into the woodwork. In the second spell Dalyellup looked much more threatening but some assertive defending by Rich Amey, Dan Dewaal, Jarred Piekarek and goalkeeper Conor Poleykett ensured Busselton City kept a clean sheet.
Busselton City Reserves returned to their winning ways when they scored a comfortable 3-0 win over Dalyellup. Central defenders Andy Cowley, Isaac Sheehan and Mitch Monck, denied their opponents time and space on the ball whilst Kobe Mayers and Jaxon Rynvis dominated midfield proceedings. Busselton scored midway through the first half when Jasper Grono scored from close range and should have gone further ahead when Martin Ryan had a chance from the penalty spot. In the second period Busselton continued to be first to the ball and were rewarded with two goals courtesy a of a long range effort from Mayers and a late one from Ryan.
A full strength Triple M Busselton City ladies team had to endure a nervous ending to their game before emerging 3-2 winners over Football Margaret River. With Tui Clarke and Ariana Longmore boosting the playing stocks, Busselton stretched their opponents defence at every opportunity and with more composed finishing should have added to their goal tally. But in the end Hannah Armstrong, Nicole Rogue and Longmore all found the back of the net which was enough to take the three points. Busselton’s Keeley Milner was always assured at the back and combined well with defenders Eliza Sheehan and Kayla Wright.
This Sunday all Busselton City sides are at home in what promises to be four keenly contested games.
