PS4 NPL WA Round 7 Review

Balcatta continued their unbeaten run after a stunning 6-2 win against ECU Joondalup at the ECU Football Stadium on Saturday.

The win, their third on the bounce, was a great display of attacking football that left the hosts floundering in their wake. 

The visitors raced to a two-goal lead through Conor Kavanagh and Feisal Zaw, before Steven McGarry pulled one back for the hosts. But Allan Carroll gave Balcatta a 3-1 lead at the break.

Further second half goals to Zaw, Anthony Bafabusha and Cameron Teece was just rewards for the rampant Balcatta, while McGarry bagged his second for the host.

Balcatta’s Marc Anthony said his side has improved, after a shaky start to the season, and he said some of the football they played was exciting to watch.

“We’re dangerous going forward, and we hope the penny has finally dropped, as a lot of people wrote us off after the Night Series,” he said.

“But the boys are starting to respond to what we’ve asked of them, and the attitude and work rate today was fantastic.”
