Soccer: Peel United still out to break winless streak after another loss

PEEL United endured another week of mixed results as its amateur first team failed to find its first win, suffering a 2-1 loss to Melville, while the reserves continued their spectacular start with a 3-2 win.

The first team was 1-0 up, but conceded either side of the halftime break to fall behind in the hotly contested encounter.

In the dying seconds, Peel was unable to convert a glorious chance, the ball striking the post before rolling off the pitch.

The reserves played out a scintillating encounter and extended their unbeaten streak to five league games in a row.

Next up, both sides will travel to Bentley to take on Curtin Uni.

The women’s division two side bounced back with a dominant 6-2 win over Woodvale, with Mel Paschkewitz and Rochelle Healy both bagging two goals each.

They were well supported by Tina Glasson and Jacome Willemse, who rounded out the score sheet ahead of their visit to North Beach next week.

Meanwhile, the women’s division 6 side got their second win on the trot, notching up a 3-0 win at home against Armadale.

The girls will look to continue their good form against Wanneroo next weekend.

The under-15s had a tough weekend with a cup fixture away to Dianella on Saturday and then a league match against Noranda City at home on Sunday morning.

With the squad ravaged by injuries, the side went down 4-1 away from home in the cup fixture, before succumbing to a physical Noranda City 5-2 at home on Sunday.

Social division two were off their game at home, beaten by a strong and fast Melville side 4-2.

The side fought hard all day long, but got caught on the break a few times to see Melville take the three points.

Social division four played away against Fremantle United and started poorly, going down by a couple of goals inside the first 20 minutes.

From there, they started to steady the ship and stop the onslaught until late with the game, ending in a 6-0 defeat.
