Ballandean scores win
Ballandean 4 df Warwick 2
THE Warwick Wolves suffered their first loss of the season, going down 4-2 to a determined Ballandean.
Ballandean spokesman Neil Newman said it was player composure and commitment that saw the players "produce their best football of the season to date".
Warwick coach Peter Osborn commended the victors on their constant pressure and positive play.
He said the result put pressure on the Warwick team to regain their early form, which had put it at the top of the ladder.
John Spiller and Ashley Fleming led the charge for Ballandean, supported by returning player Greg Dachs.
Joseph Marstella continues to improve for Warwick, while Josh Jordan has been proving his worth, backing up from Colts each week.
Carlton 2 d Inter 2
Carlton looked to have the upper hand in its match against Inter, until midway through the second half, when Inter rallied to level the score at 2-2.
Both teams had plenty of chances to seal the game, but some fine keeping at both ends kept the score locked, as Inter struggled against a plague of injuries.
Inter spokesman James Lawrie said the team was looking forward to a return to strength in the coming weeks.
Carlton spokesman Ian Dopson said the result was fitting. Best for Carlton was Michael Torrisi and Luke Sulzberger, while Sandro Stefanon and Dave Patison were standouts for Inter.
United 3 df City 1
United pushed ahead to a 3-1 victory over City in an entertaining match.
The score was locked at 1-1 for much of the game, until United got the upper hand over a tiring City.
United coach Steve McEvoy said the win came off the back of good passing, with players pushing the ball around to create opportunities.
City coach Graham Minifie said improved fitness could bring a different result.
"We need to increase our fitness levels, especially at colt level, as so many are stepping up to A-grade."
Both keepers did well, while Brett McEvoy, Rylan Jurd and first-time A-grader Josh Mouws had great games.
