Subiaco came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory, their first of the season, against Armadale at Rosalie Park on Saturday.

Barker brilliance keeps scores tied

Cockburn City’s goalkeeper Ryan Barker ensured Floreat Athena would settle for a 1-1 draw in his debut appearance at E&D Litis Stadium on Saturday.

Barker’s acrobatics late in the second period prevented his opponents from finding a winner.

Floreat created the first opportunity when Andrew Scaldaferro squared it across to Phillip Arnold whose shot dribbled past a post and out of play.

Cockburn took the lead on the brink of half time, partly thanks to a free-kick from Cameron Edwards. Edwards whipped the ball into the box spurring a punch from Floreat’s Dejan Aleksic which found its way to Julian Teles who made no mistake.

Bayswater top of the heap with win over Balcatta

Bayswater City became outright league leaders of the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues WA after grinding out a 1-0 win over Balcatta at Grindleford Reserve on Saturday.

A solid performance in the first half was followed by some spirited defending in the second, against a Balcatta attack that had scored sixteen goals in their previous four league outings.

The intensity of the match was established early when Balcatta’s Kieron Stallard was booked for a rash challenge on Brian Farrell.

Both sides had plenty of chances in the box during the first half hour, with Todd Howarth’s pin point crosses featuring heavily in the visiting attack.

The home side started proceeding stronger, dominating possession and creating several chances in the opening 15 minutes. 

Glory had their first real chance in the 16th minute as Stirling failed to clear their lines, although Cal Whitney's effort on goal sailed over the bar.

Subiaco secure first win of the season

The win sees Subiaco move within two points of Armadale on the ladder, with both teams now occupying the bottom two spots in the league.

Armadale hit the lead a quarter of the way through the game, with a high lobbed ball into the box falling to striker Alex Castiello's feet, who was able to time a well-struck half-volley into the back of the net.

The goal came against the run of play, with Subiaco the ones spending most of the game to that point attempting to create opportunities in their forward half.
