St Joseph’s sur­prise Yakamia in tense arm-wres­tle

Albany Extra - - Sport -

Yakamia were look­ing to keep the pres­sure on the Al­bany Ju­nior Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion un­der-12 lead­ers Gram­mar Blue when they played St Joseph’s Light­ning who had a mixed sea­son up un­til last Satur­day.

St Joseph’s came out with more in­ten­sity and got onto the score sheet early with a strike from Santino Pi­etropaolo. And it was soon 2-0 when Ri­ley Ni­cholas calmly slot­ted home.

Yakamia man­aged to pull one back through Ri­ley Bar­rett who then had an op­por­tu­nity for a sec­ond when a St Joseph’s player han­dled out­side the area but the re­sult­ing free kick hit the post and was even­tu­ally cleared.

An­other op­por­tu­nity came with an­other in­di­rect free kick

that went straight into the back of the net but was dis­al­lowed, be­cause an­other player had not touched the ball first.

Yakamia were frus­trated in the sec­ond half as St Joseph’s took ev­ery op­por­tu­nity and had the higher-placed Yakamia search­ing for goals the

more open it be­came at the back.

Yakamia added two more goals but St Joseph’s proved too strong with three of their own, to take the win 5-3.

The Aus­tralian Chris­tian Col­lege were able to record their sec­ond vic­tory of the sea­son when they played Al­bany United in a tight con­test, ACC pre­vail­ing 4-2.

Mt Locker thrashed St Joseph Thun­der 18-0 and Gram­mar Blue beat Gram­mar Red 10-0.

Den­mark and John Calvin could not be sep­a­rated in a matched that ended 5-5 and an up­per-end-of-the-ta­ble clash fin­ished 6-2 in favour of Bethel when they played Mt Barker.

Polo­nia met Stir­ling Rangers for the sec­ond time this sea­son in the un­der-14s and it was Polo­nia, who got the up­per hand with an early goal.

An­other three Polo­nia goals had them well on top by half time and they fin­ished 5-1 win­ner.

John Calvin and Gram­mar drew 2-2 and Rovers were too strong for Den­mark beat­ing them 5-1 in the other games.
