Reigning league champions Denmark powered to their fourth win of the Great Southern Soccer Association season in round five of the Great Southern Soccer Association women’s premier league on Friday.

Denmark lost in round two but have now won three games in a row after winning 3-0 over Polonia.

The reigning champions led by two goals at half-time before netting a third goal in the last 45 minutes to help them move four points clear on top of the ladder.

Laura McEwan, Ebony Thompson and Abby Carter were the goal scorers in the win.

Phoenix won by forfeit over Caledonians in the other women’s premier match.

Because of the two NPL WA games played in Albany on Saturday, the men’s premier league games were rescheduled.

Three second-half goals helped reigning cup and league champions Polonia notch their third win of the season.

Polonia walked away 4-0 winners over Phoenix as Nathan Griffiths, Oliver Trichilo, Connor Bunce and Petru Bolescu all netted goals in the match played last Thursday.

Caledonians and Rovers have rescheduled their match for September 16.

In the women’s reserves competition four goals from Ebonee Van Brugel guided Phoenix to a 5-0 win over Royals. Denmark and Grammar had a nil-all draw in the other completed match.

Mya Oreo and Mabel Nash guided Polonia to an emphatic 9-0 win over Grammar in the women’s social league while Denmark and Bayswater drew 1-1.

Last Tuesday night in the men’s social competition round four fixtures Bayswater beat Grammar, Denmark and Polonia drew 4-4 while the game between Cross Keys and Rovers was called off after 30 minutes due to a lighting failure with Rovers ahead 4-0 at the time.
