Polonia continued their superb run of form in the Great Southern Soccer Association men’s division-one competition, with a comfortable 3-0 win over bottom-placed Royals in round nine on Saturday. Polonia suffered their only defeat of the season in the first round but have since notched eight straight wins, moving four points clear atop the GSSA league table. Polonia controlled the early stages of the contest, creating a number of chances. A quickly taken corner caused a scramble in the penalty-area and the ball was deflected off a Royals player into the back of their own net to open scores. Royals conceded shortly after as Polonia tightened their grip on the contest, going 2-0 up before half-time. The second half saw improvements to the Royals’ defence but they failed to keep Polonia out, conceding a third goal on their way to an eighth loss of the season. Elsewhere, Rovers pushed past a persistent Bayswater in a heated encounter with five yellow cards. Bayswater’s Jack Ditchburn, Joshua D’Aprile and James Opuni were all cautioned with yellow cards while Rovers goal scorer Michael Draper and Andrew Oboh were also booked. Rovers speedster Brad Bielecki and Tom McKenzie both hit the net for the second-placed side and despite a consolation goal from Tyler Buchanan, Bayswater lost 2-1. In the other division-one league fixture, Caledonians notched their fifth win of the season as they downed Denmark 4-1 to remain in third place on the GSSA ladder. Caledonians dominated from the outset as Levi Clay, Cameron Dekker, Beau Timmer and Oliver Trichilo all scored to hand Denmark their sixth loss of the year despite a Nicholas Bahr-Pike goal in the second half. In women’s division one, Mt Barker easily downed Sonics 4-0 to remain undefeated. Libby Morris chipped in with two goals for Mt Barker, helped by Abigail Marsh and Lowana Winter on one apiece in the dominant victory. Meanwhile Polonia’s Elisabeth Bosch and Maggie-Jayne Smit both scored a brace along with one from each of Keira Wiegele and Holly Hoare in their 6-0 thumping of Caledonians. Bottom side Denmark B battled hard to draw with Phoenix. Denmark’s Matilda and Bonnie Shepherd, and Phoenix players Tasmyn Van Burgel and Lauren Vanderschaaf all fired a goal each. In the final women’s division one fixture, Rovers took a 3-1 half-time lead against Polonia B and held on, recording a comfortable 5-2 win. In the men’s division two, Polonia conceded two early goals to trail 2-1 at half-time but fought back for a 4-2 victory over Rovers. A four-goal Sam Mclean haul helped Bayswater thump Royals 9-1 while Caledonians and Phoenix played out a 2-2 draw. In women’s division two, Denmark D routed Polonia 5-0, Royals trounced Denmark C 5-0 and Mt Barker were overcome by Rovers 3-1.
