A week in football from the Campus

A week in football from the Campus

Posted on July 24, 2021 in 'News'

It looks like another exciting weekend of football at the ECU Campus, and it was another busy week at the club.

Our NPLWA first team were in the Belt-Up Cup Final against Floreat Athena at Inglewood Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but a goal from Kyle Murray gave Floreat a 0-1 win, but the lads played well and were unlucky in the game.

Our 18s and 20s were in action in midweek against Inglewood United at the ECU Football Stadium in catch up games. First on Monday the 18s were beaten 1-4, with Jay Patel making it 1-1 on the half hour, but Inglewood restored their lead just before half time and added two more after the break.

Then on Wednesday the 20s fought out an entertaining 3-3 draw. The visitors raced to a two-goal lead early, but Daniel Dos Santos De Souza pulled one back just before half time. De Souza levelled on the hour but Inglewood regained the lead. But Jason Petrie levelled on 78 minutes, and both sides pressed for the winner but it ended 3-3.

This week we make the trip to SafeRad Stadium to take on Rockingham City in Week 16 0f the NPLWA. 18s kick off at 11.00am, 20s at 1.00pm and the first team at 3.00pm.

Last week our Women’s State League Division One side bounced back to beat Gwelup Croatia at Wishart Street. Amy Buchanan gave Toby Wright’s side the lead early, and late first half goal from Frankie Murray and Nadia Godley put them in control. A second goal to Buchanan in the second half secured the win.
They are back in action on Sunday when they host Mandurah City at the ECU Football Stadium – kick off 3.00pm.

Our Amateur women’s side were also winners last week, with a 3-0 win against Balga at Prendiville Catholic College. Arwen Deans gave them the lead early, before a brace from Royan Norman sealed the win.
They are back in action on Sunday when they host UWA Nedlands at the Campus – kick off 1.00pm.

In other Womens program games – The 12s girls’ played Woodvale in a game that started in torrential rain.
