Not even a torrential downpour last Sunday afternoon could spoil the celebrations of Busselton City with all five teams returning to the winner’scircle.
CMI Busselton City Men’s Premier League team were always on top of their Hay Park opponents with a 3-0 victory. Defender Jack Garnham’s organisational ability along with the work ethic of Rich Amey ensured a much-improvedperformance after last week’s surprise loss. A first half goal to Mat Evans was followed by another from the reliable Ian Feakes before the highly regarded Craig Barker completed the scoring just before the final whistle.
Sportspower Busselton City ladies recorded two notable wins against last season’s premiers, Hay Park United. The Reserves team, a mix of young, new and returning players won with a convincing 7-2 score on the board. The unstoppable combination of strikers Chenaye Wright and Emily Killick, scored six goals with Molly Hawkins adding the seventh. Defenders Jayne Gardiner and Claire Marchand-Johns impressed along with midfieldersBanita Stewart and the very promising Finlay Godden.
In the Premier League game, the local side continued their dominance of the competition with their third successive win. By halftime they were 7-0 up with goals from Asha McClurg, Siobhan and Ariana Longmore, Keeley Milner and Therese Charlton. They eased up in the second half with Chenaye Wright scoring twice, while Claude Duane and Chelsea Braam made the final score 11-0.
Busselton City Men’s Reserves can thank defender Cam Goldsmith for their 1-0 win over Hay Park, when he scored from a set piece. This side is currently unbeaten but was guilty at times of squandering numerous opportunities to find the back of the net. Both Jaxon and Damon Rynvis gave of their best whilst defender Cam Best looked assured in his first game of the season.
The Men’s division 2 side proved to be too strongin the second spell for Dynamos, running out 5-2 winners. Three goals to Martin Ryan and another to Romain Trouve were overshadowed by a tremendous 25 metre shot from young midfielder Josh Snow. In a solid team performance, Ben Harney and Romain Bouchier returned pleasing ninety-minute efforts.
This Sunday all Busselton City teams return to their Churchill Park home to host Dalyellup Park Rangers.
