The Gold Fields State Under 15s signed off at the Bali International Football Championships with a 2-0 win over Filipno team Apuesto Bueno United on Friday night.
After a goalless first half, the WA side went ahead through a penalty from Hamish Van Dieken after Freeman Nyatsambo was upended following a penetrating run.
Striker Jamie Swan made the victory secure with a neat finish as the Gold Fields State Team ended the tournament with three victories from four. They also won a warm up match on the eve of the competition.
Van Dieken was involved throughout and linked up well with Nyatsambo. Daniel Faichney was a regular threat, too, while at the back Jake Shaked and Callum Piper kept the Filipino attacking ambitions to a minimum, ably supported by keeper Sam Reilly sweeping up at the edge of the area.
Coach Brad Hassell said: “They didn’t really put any pressure on our defence. We just had to have a word at haf time about trying to find the space that (would) pull their players wide for us to play through, and that worked quite well.”
Looking at the whole week in Indonesia, Hassell added: “I think some of the better performances were actually against the tougher opposition, so that was pleasing.”
The closing ceremony for the championships is on Sunday.
