Match Report - Seniors 30th June 2019
For the sixth time this season CMI Busselton City conceded a costly late goal, this time in their 3-2 defeat by Margaret River on Sunday. Busselton established a 2-0 lead midway through the first half through a superb Luke Wright strike and some good finishing by winger Will Jackson. But Margaret River quickly got back on terms through a penalty and a delightful goal by Margaret River’s Tom Collins. Deep into injury time Busselton were surprisingly penalised and Collins completed his hat-trick with a precise free kick to seal the win.
Busselton Reserves surged back into second spot on the ladder when they deservedly grabbed a hard fought 3-1 win over Collie. After a scoreless first half a Mitch Monck penalty started the ball rolling before Luke Tompsett and Justin McClurg went close to doubling the score line. However it was another Monck goal and a Martin Ryan header that gave the locals some breathing space before Collie notched a consolation goal almost on the full time whistle.
Triple M Busselton City ladies side probably viewed their scoreless draw against Dynamos as an opportunity lost as much as anything else. Busselton enjoyed the majority of possession and had claims midway through the second spell for a goal. However despite the midfield urgings of Sami Ryan and Kayla Wright, a well organised opposition defence held firm. Busselton looked the more dangerous side with their striking trio of Ariana Dawson, Allyson Armstrong and Emily Killick producing a number of attacking options.
The Woody Nook Masters team shocked league leaders Dalyellup, when they scored an early goal through Martin Ryan. However the opposition led by former Busselton player Tristen Carroll, grabbed back the ascendancy with two first half goals. In the second spell, Busselton went close to equalising through the efforts of Dave Wright, Glenn Armstrong and Paul Satterthwaite. However it was Dalyellup who found the back of the net and went on to record a 3-1 win.
This Sunday all Busselton City teams are at home again with the men’s side encountering Australind whilst the ladies host Dunsborough.
