Albany-Bayswater moved a game clear on top of the Great Southern Soccer Association men’s premier league standings after a tense round four victory over Polonia at the North Road soccer grounds on Saturday evening.

The two sides both netted a goal in the first half but a second from Albany-Bayswater helped them record a third win of the season and skip three points above rivals Caledonians in top spot.

Fletcher Warren and Daniele Maggi both found the back of the net while Polonia’s first-half goal came from Jack McNamee.

In the other fixture, a brace from Guy Woonings guided Phoenix to a 2-1 win over Albany Rovers as they collected their first points of the new season.
