Albany Bayswater 15s claimed the Albany Junior Soccer Association under-16 cup title after defeating John Calvin in the final on Saturday. After finishing third in the league, Bayswater 15s defeated league champions Albany Bayswater 16s and then downed Polonia to get into the final. A goal early in the first half was enough for the Bayswater 15s to claim the cup. Although John Calvin — who had huge support cheering them on — went down a goal early in the decider, they rallied and had opportunities to score. However, they were constantly thwarted by Bayswater’s Renoir Nash in goal, who pulled off some spectacular saves to be named player of the match. Frustratingly for John Calvin, the one shot that did beat him went agonisingly wide by centimetres, and Bayswater were able to hold 1-0. Albany Primary were contesting the cup final against their closest rivals Great Southern Grammar in the under-12 cup final. Grammar were very well organised with good shape in attack and early on the attacking form gave them a valuable 1-0 lead. They could have had a couple more but Robson Nielsen was keeping them at bay in the Albany Primary goal. At the other end of the field Albany Primary’s Faris Houderrani was being well managed by Grammar’s Myles King, who wasn’t allowing him many chances at goal. Eventually, the equaliser came the score remained 1-1 at half-time. The second half went goalless and extra time was required. Five minutes into the first period of extra time the result was decided as Grammar scored three goals in as many minutes to put the cup beyond Albany Primary’s reach and prevail 4-1. Extra time was also needed in the under-13s between Grammar and Albany Bayswater. After 50 minutes the game remained goalless, although Bayswater were lucky not to be behind with a couple of last-ditch clearances keeping Grammar out. Penalties were looming but then moments from time Orlando D’Alesio scored to guide Bayswater to victory. The under-14s was a thrilling contest with two of the closest matched teams in the associa-tion. Stirling Rangers star and competition best-and-fairest player Eh Ler scored a hat-trick in the league decider and it was Aaron Orr’s job to try and nullify his threat in the cup final. A role he did to perfection picking up the player of the match award as Polonia recorded a well-earned 2-1 victory. With almost every player in their last junior soccer game, the under-18s cup final between Polonia Red and Bayswater was a fitting way to end the day. The pace didn’t drop for the entire match and after they were comfortably beaten in last week’s league title decider by their cup final opposition, Polonia Red were at full strength in defence for the cup final. Will Smith put Polonia Red in front but as the wind picked up Bayswater fell deeper and deeper, finding it harder to get the ball out of their defensive half. Late in the first half Bayswater equalised but then had to try and see out the second half playing into the wind. A Connor Bunce strike from near the halfway sailed into the back of the net and Bayswater searched desperately for the equaliser but they conceded again as Smith scored his second to hand Polonia Red a 3-1 win. In the under-15s, Mt Barker kept Rovers 19 honest in the first half but Rovers 19 hit back to finish cup champions, 6-1.
