Denmark scored four unanswered goals in their lively 6-3 victory against a determined Rovers Black side in the Albany Junior Soccer Association under-13 competition on Saturday.

Denmark’s Anoushka Kenyon and Freya Miller opened the scores with two classy finishes in the first half to go 2-1 up at half-time.

Rover’s Troy Franey scored a second-half equaliser to keep his side in the hunt, but Denmark piled on four goals in quick succession to quell any hope Rovers had of a comeback win.

Rovers Gold have bounced back from two gruelling defeats in the first two weeks to rattle off consecutive victories in their bid to climb the ladder.

Faris Houderrani was magnificent, scoring a hat-trick in his side’s 8-3 victory over the Great Southern Griffins.

ACC Southlands pushed past Polonia in a comfortable 4-1 walk-over to keep their season on track, while Stirling Rangers brushed aside John Calvin 12-0 and Caledonians ran over Albany Bayswater 7-0.

Stirling Rangers remain on top of the table with Caledonian, ACC Southlands and Denmark rounding out the top four.

The under-12 competition is often the closest competition across all age groups and results prove to be wildly unpredictable.

There are only two teams with a 100 per cent win record in Albany Diggers, who won 10-3 against St Josephs, and John Calvin, who beat Denmark Black 7-3.

ACC Southlands found success, winning 7-2 against Albany Primary Strikers, and Great Southern Griffins emerged victorious against Mt Lockyer.

Parklands took an early advantage against Yakamia and never faltered, winning 9-1.

ACC beat the Albany Strikers 7-2 and Griffins defeated Mt Lockyer 6-2.

In the final game of the round, Parklands moved themselves into third place on the table after a comfortable 9-1 win.
