Soccer: Peel United has mixed weekend of results

IT was another mixed weekend for Peel United, with the amateur reserves and Under-15s side both posting wins, the amateur first team sharing the spoils while the socials and women’s teams suffered defeats.

The firsts remain winless after three rounds having scraped a 1-1 draw away at UWA.

Students took the lead with a well-rehearsed corner routine and nearly went up 2-0 if not for a fantastic save by goalkeeper Daryl Wilmott.

Peel continued to press hard, missing chances until, with two minutes to go, captain Daniel Prince fired home from six yards out to even things up to help his side earn a point.

The reserves were somewhat more impressive, continuing their undefeated run after a comfortable 7-3 victory against UWA; Billy Waterman was the star, firing home a hat trick.

Peel dominated large passages of the game, complete with composed finishing, fantastic dribbling and even cheeky nutmegs.

Three wins from three matches has the reserves firmly placed to retain its division four title.

Meanwhile both social teams tasted defeat, with division two suffering its first loss of the season at the hands of an experienced Gosnells side.

They went down 2-0 in what was an even encounter that saw Gosnells score from a penalty and a corner.

Division four fell to Kwinana United 7-1.

The women’s game was one of two halves but it was not to be for Peel, falling at home in a high scoring encounter 5-4 to Joondalup City

United went into the sheds with a 3-2 lead but Joondalup came out all guns firing and buried a few cracking goals to take the win.

The Under-15s kicked off their season with a win, beating Westside 4-2.

Ben Brock put in two goals while Luke Hobson and Matthew Wainwright both grabbed one each.

Next week, the amateur sides will travel to Victoria Park to take on Emerald FC, the social division two team will travel to Sutherlands Park while division four will host East Fremantle.

The women face a road trip to Brooklands FC while the Under-15s will clash with rivals Rockingham City.
