Strong winds can’t stop Bus­sel­ton

South Western Times - - Sport -

BUS­SEL­TON are the 2017 South West Soccer As­so­ci­a­tion Cup cham­pi­ons after de­feat­ing Dy­namos 2-0 in Leschenault on Sun­day.

De­spite a howl­ing wind, Bus­sel­ton man­aged to score an amaz­ing goal when Mike Newell headed the ball into the back of the net after a cross which was caught in the strong breeze.

From here Bus­sel­ton kept their struc­ture and com­po­sure with their de­fend­ers clear­ing with a num­ber of long kicks up the field, be­fore tak­ing ad­van­tage with the breeze at their backs dur­ing the se­cond half.

Dy­namos young­ster Josh Cruik­shank and team­mate Greg Hayes worked tire­lessly to keep Bus­sel­ton’s at­tacks at bay but with the breeze at their backs the vic­tors kept up a re­lent­less as­sault on the Dy­namos.

This was even­tu­ally re­warded when Martin Ryan got a head to the ball in the six-yard box to beat goal­keeper Jor­dan Bar­clay and dou­ble their lead.

From here both teams de­fended well, with Bus­sel­ton hold­ing on to win the cham­pi­onship.
