Olympic FC take mi­nor premier­ship

Geraldton Guardian - - Sport - Justin Fris

Olympic FC ended the penul­ti­mate round of the Mid West Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion’s se­nior men’s com­pe­ti­tion as mi­nor pre­miers, af­ter their 8-1 lash­ing of base­ment-bound Rovers White last Satur­day af­ter­noon at Sal­va­tore Sci­uto Sta­dium.

Cou­pled with Chap­man Tigers be­ing held to a 2-2 draw against La Fi­amma on Sun­day, the six-point mar­gin means Olympic can­not be caught — even with the bye this week­end.

Rovers Black caused the up­set of the round, end­ing their six-game los­ing streak in style af­ter ham­mer­ing Chap­man Black 5-2.

Matches were lop­sided in round 14 of se­nior women’s com­pe­ti­tion, with all beaten sides (Ger­ald­ton Rovers, Batavia United and Mar­coni) un­able to find the goal.

The fi­nal reg­u­lar sea­son round of the se­nior men’s com­pe­ti­tion will be held this week­end, with se­nior women hav­ing a break un­til the open­ing round of fi­nals matches on Mon­day, Septem­ber 4.
