FFA Cup: Joondalup United through
Football West News
State League Division One side Joondalup United advanced to the fourth round of the FFA Cup after overcoming Belt Up Amateur champions North Perth United 2-0 at Forrest Park.
North Perth did well to hold out until the 87th minute, even if they struggled to create chances.
But they eventually cracked when James Oldroyd headed home to put Joondalup 1-0 in front.
United were running out of answers and just a minute later a defensive error allowed Scott Hoyle to sew up the game.
United coach Nick Jenninngs was glad to get the job done.
“I thought it was a standard cup game. We knew it would be a hard, physical game. It wasn’t pretty but all that matters is winning,” he said.
“I think especially our captain Tony Taylor came on and made a positive impact. The work rate went up when he came on.
“We lost a few to injuries but our subs worked hard and everyone in the end it was a team effort.”
North Perth coach Alex Carter was dissapointed with the way his team lost the game.
“I think especially first 45 minutes we controlled the build-up play really well,” he said.
“We said at half time we just need to be a little bit more patient, probably in the last 20 yards around the box or have the ability to get one on one with a direct opponent.
“We became too direct in the second half and that opened the game up a bit too much when had control of it and left them in.”
Elsewhere in the FFA Cup, Ellis Healing and Danny Hodgson scored four apiece as Gwelup Croatia beat Alabany side Polonia 12-0 on the south coast.
Albany Caledonia went down 7-0 at Morley-Windmills while Olympic Kingsway won 3-1 at Quinns FC.
