Match Report - Seniors 5th May 2019
A combination of poor decision making and individual errors proved costly for CMI Busselton City in their 3-2 loss to Dynamos on Sunday.
After a bright start which culminated in a Martin Ryan penalty, Busselton committed the cardinal sin of waiting for the referee’s whistle and Dynamos were able to equalise. The first part of the second spell saw Dynamos take control with two quick goals before Ryan reduced the deficit late in the game. At times Busselton posed a number of problems to last year’s Premiers with strikers Ryan and Ash Pemberton looking particularly dangerous.
Busselton City Reserves side would have been somewhat disappointed despite keeping their unbeaten record in tact with a 2-1 win over Dynamos. The young Sam Kellett coached side were possibly guilty of being overly elaborate at times despite leading throughout the game with goals from Luke Tompsett and Miles Palmer- Williams. Promising midfielders Patrick Tarrant and Scott Miller were impressive with their work ethic and willingness to look beyond the obvious. Goalkeeper Conor Polykett showed that he will be a handy acquisition with his composure and experience.
In a top of the table clash Triple M Busselton City ladies were defeated 3-1 by Hay Park United. Finding themselves down a goal midway through the first half, the local side continued to create chances without finding the back of the net. In the second spell some wayward Busselton passing was capitalised upon and Hay Park grabbed a further two goals. Busselton finally scored right on full time through Therese Charlton after some good lead up work by defender Tennille Pavlinovich.
The Woody Nook Masters team were unable to convert possession into scoring opportunities in their 1-0 loss to Bunbury United. After conceding a first half goal Busselton controlled the game at times but had difficulty penetrating the opposition defence. Whilst they looked strong at the back through Glenn Armstrong and Peter Thompson, Busselton were unable to make the most in front of goals despite the good work of Andy Bee and Paul Satterwaite.
This Sunday is another home game with the men playing Bunbury United and the ladies take on Australind.
