Balga SC Reserves shared the spoils with Wanneroo on what were testing weather conditions.
“The Wanneroo game was a fairly frustrating one from my point of view” commented Juma Awaka. “We played well when attacking but we just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net”.
In what proved to be testing weather conditions Balga SC entered the match full of confidence having beaten Swan United 4 goals to 1 in their last outing, but they fell behind on the half hour mark after a long ball eluded the defensive lineup and was converted by the hosts.
Balga pilled on the pressure and were quickly rewarded shortly after with an equaliser. Juma Awaka finishing a move that he started to earn a share of the spoils for his team. Balga continued to threaten but were unable to breach the Wanneroo goal line. “We had a lot of chances to get ahead, especially in the second half” said Awaka. “It’s a learning process and we will learn from our mistakes. Overall we played well and I believe we deserved the win”.
In their next match Balga take on second placed Joondalup City at Iluka Sports Complex (Miami Beach Promenade Iluka 6028). Awaka is confident that his team can do the job and bring back the points to Balga. “Joondalup is going to be a tough game for us. They are sitting second on the ladder for a reason” he said. “If we play like we did on the weekend and give them everything we got then there’s no doubt we will leave with the 3 points”.
