Balga took the lead with just 6 minutes on the clock. Balga defender Anton DeFrancesch was well placed to slot the ball into the net from a corner. Nahom Michael extended their lead in the 34th minute with a well taken shot from outside the box. Morley pulled one back just before the half time whistle to stay in the game and put pressure on Balga.

Their hopes for an equaliser were dashed on the hour mark, Vladimir Naumovski was fauled just outside the box and expertly finishing the resulting free kick.
“Our backline had a very good game” said Naumovski. “They were under pressure for long periods of time and were able to prevent goal scoring opportunities”.
Balga SC travel to Edinburgh Oval to take on Curtin University FC on Saturday 30 April 2016 in round 4 of the Football West All Flags State League Division 2. Curtis University sit third on the ladder with 7 points and remain undefeated from 3 games.
“I’m looking forward to another tough game this weekend against Curtin.

There’s a lot of competition for spots at the moment and if we play the football we are capable of, for the better part of the game, we should come away with the points” he continued.
