FFA Cup: Azzurri to face Bayswater

Football West News

UPDATE: Perth SC will host Bayswater City in the pick of the Round Six ties in the FFA Cup.

The regional quarter-finals have thrown together the two clubs who have dominated the National Premier Leagues era of football in WA.

Reigning champions Perth are currently top of the table and unbeaten this season. They thrashed Second Division Balga 7-0 last Saturday to book their place in the last eight.

In contrast Bayswater were staring down the barrel when 2-0 down early in the second half at home to Cockburn City. But three goals in 12 minutes rescued Bayswater’s cup run and they can now look forward to a trip to Dorrien Gardens.

Balcatta left it late when overcoming lowly Canning City last weekend and they have landed another home tie against fellow NPL side Floreat Athena, who were impressive in beating first division Olympic Kingsway 3-0.

UWA Nedlands caused the upset of Round Five by knocking out Stirling Lions and they have been rewarded with a clash against Rockingham City at UWA Sports Park.

The final game sees Sorrento travel to Fremantle City, who defetaed Warnbro Strikers 6-0 in their rescheduled Round Five tie.

The matches will be played on Monday, June 3 (WA Day).
