Major Win For The Homeside

Margaret River is continuing on from their wonderful start to the soccer season with a 6-0 win over the visiting Collie team over the weekend.

The news article “Massive win for hosting team” has full details on this story. It says the following: “In blustery conditions, Collie team kicked off with a stiff wind at their backs and put Margaret River under pressure with the constant long ball. However, this was managed well by Margaret River defence and they opened the scoring in the 15th minute with Alex Costa kicking a well-struck shot into the bottom corner. His South-American counterpart Tiago added to the tally with a clinical finish 10 minutes later.”

The Margaret River team appeared to be in full control as they treated the enthusiastic spectators to an amazing show of attacking moves and crisp passing. Collie fought very hard and played some high quality soccer; including some incredible individual efforts in defence. However, they were completely over-powered by Margaret River.

Around five minutes prior to the half time a well-planned move allowed Kade Bougoure of the senior club to score his first goal thanks to a superbly-placed header.

The weather became more of a factor in the second half and the Margaret River team used it to gain dominance and put Collie under pressure.

There were instances where the focus of the Margaret River team was tested but they did not let Collie to come back in the game, though it took them until halfway through the second half to expand their lead thanks to birthday boy Garry Holmes.

Tiago beautifully played the role of the striker with some excellent touches and a goal.

The game was all over by then as Collie just placed players behind the ball for stopping the flow of goals; however, there was not much they could do as Kade managed to score his second goal of the day.

He beautifully curled the ball into the top corner with the outer part of his right foot.

This was yet another spectacular display of soccer and the Margaret River team truly deserved their win.

The team will play two matches next week with a visit to Dardanup over the weekend to play the League tournament and to Capel for Anzac Day’s South West Pioneer Cup.
