Balga continued their good form with a 5-3 win against Gosnells City at Princess Road Reserve. City arrived without a coach with Alan Dunlop resigning in the week, and Jamie Burn and Dion Selby took control of the team. There was a somber start to the game with a minutes silence was held for Balga committee member and Footballwa’s Jacob Aufdemkampe, whose father passed away earlier that morning, and the Balga players wore black armbands as a mark of respect. The home side were ahead when Daniel Moss broke through down the wing and his flew in low at the near post.

But Gosnells hit back and scored twice to take the lead, but Balga leveled before the break with Jake Verini was brought down in the box and Vlad Naumovski scored from the spot. Naumovski added another penalty after half time, and Moss added his second to make it 4-2, before Naumovski completed his hat-trick with the fifth. Gosnells pulled one back late, but it was too little too late. “I thought is a great footballing exhibition, but there were poor lapses of concentration on the goals conceded,” Balga coach Aleks Vrteski said. “But I thought there were some fantastic build up play for goals scored.”
