Kwinana extend title race

Football West News

North Perth United’s coronation as Belt Up Amateur Premier champions was delayed for at least a week after Kwinana United scored three times in the final seven minutes of their match to mathematically stay in the hunt.

While North Perth were overcoming South West Phoenix 2-0 at Woodville Reserve, Kwinana were staring down the barrel as they fell behind 2-1 against UWA Nedlands with eight minutes to go.

But 60 seconds later David Clark equalised to set up a thrilling finish in which Lee Bates scored twice.

Kwinana’s 4-2 win keeps them seven points behind North Perth with three matches remaining. The leaders had a relatively comfortable afternoon against Phoenix thanks to second-half goals from Joel Jebaratnam and Lucas-Joel Munoz-Despierre.

Leeming Strikers jumped from sixth to third after a 2-0 home win over Wembley Downs, Tom Grant and Kieran Witt getting the goals before half-time.

Jaguar’s home clash with Maddington White City exploded into life with four goals in the last 10 minutes in a 3-3 draw.

With the game tied at 1-1, 10-man Jaguar grasped control through quickfire goals from Gojam Nyuon and Akuei Guot. A minute from time Chris Sparks threw Maddington a lifeline and two minutes into stoppage time they grabbed it via Cesar Orozco’s penalty.

A hat-trick from Ryan McCready helped Quinns to an eye-catching 5-2 victory at Hamersley Rovers, while Gareth Davies and Ryan Pellow scored two goals in four first-half minutes to give Joondalup United a 2-0 win over Queens Park.
