BAYSWATER City Soccer Club has continued its surge up the ladder with its fifth straight win on the trot.

The club beat Floreat 3-2 in their round 10 clash at home.

Bayswater is sitting equal first with Inglewood on points and second on goal difference.

Coach Chris Coyne said he was very pleased with the team’s performance on Saturday.

“The first 35 minutes they stuck to our team tasks and Floreat had no idea how to cope with our system and how quickly we moved the ball,” Coyne said.

“We were 2-0 up after 30 minutes and should have been 4 or 5.

“In the second half Floreat had nothing to lose and threw everything at us but we were extremely resolute; 3-2 reflected better for Floreat as we had a lot of chances and missed a penalty as well.”

With an 8-2 win-loss record, Coyne said his players came out unscathed and were ready for Saturday’s away clash against Balcatta.

“We haven’t changed a lot with the formation and the boys are really looking forward to playing some free-flowing exciting football this week which is how we have set them up,” he said.

Coyne said Balcatta had recovered from a slightly slow start to the season and a change of managers.

“They are the in-form team at the moment with the amount of goals they are scoring and will be very difficult opposition this weekend on home turf,” he said.

He said defender Devon Gibson was a good chance of being available the following week after having missed the previous games with a thigh strain.
