Sunday Wrap: Round 6

28 May 2014 Written by HRSC

A form reversing win for the Premier First Team and two huge wins for the Ladies stood out amongst a sea of losses for Hamersley teams on Sunday.

First up the Premier team looked to be heading for more pain when they went two goals down to Whitfords City. A Dan Fowler goal before half-time had Rovers going into the break with a bit of hope of turning things around. The turning point came when Whitfords had a man sent off. Shaun Gibbons scored soon after and Dan Fowler put the Hammers in front. Fowler and Gibbons then traded goals to both complete their hat-tricks and seal an emphatic win that lifts us off the bottom of the league into 8th place.

The Premier Reserves game had a little less action on the scoresheet with a very rare 0-0 draw against Whitfords Reserves.

Division 4 were home to Melville City who got on the score sheet against the run of play to a goal worth more than a hint of offside. Rovers kept up the pressure but couldn’t find the finishing touch, hitting the post twice. Melville broke away to extend their lead which was cut by a Sam Love 30 yeard screamer into the top corner. The game finishing 2-1 to the opposition. The boys put in a terrific effort and a breakthrough win is surely just around the corner. Division 4 Reserves lost 5-1 with defender Daryl Malam with the goal.

Ladies I made it two wins on the bounce with a resounding 8-0 win over Lynwood United. Michelle Oveinikovas scored a hat-trick, Lorena Hauri (2), Dorte McGillivray (2) and Eimear Roantree finished the scoring. Ladies II made it six wins out of six with a solid 4-0 win over UWA-Nedlands to stay top of the league.

Social I lost 4-0 to UWA-Nedlands, Social II went down 4-1 to Alexander Florina while Social III were unlucky to be on the end of a 2-0 defeat to Chindits United.

Masters II had a bye while Masters I had a top of the table clash with Spearwood Dalmatinac. Some familiar faces in the opposition with former Socceroo goalkeeper Michael Petkovic (playing up front) and former Perth Glory midfielder Gary Faria in the line-up. Despite matching them for long periods, Petkovic made the difference, scoring three and setting up one in a 4-1 win for Spearwood. Simon Edwards scored the Hammers goal.

Its cup time next week with the Premiers making the trip up to play Yanchep United from Division 5. Ladies I, Masters I and Masters II all play at home as everyone else has a the long weekend off. Good luck to all teams in the cup.
