Subiaco 0 v Bayswater 3
Women’s Div 4
Rosalie Park 1pm KO
The Bayswater ladies continued on their winning run with a 3-0 win away to Subiaco under gloomy conditions at Rosalie Park on Sunday afternoon.
Bayswater started the game slowly missing countless opportunities, but managed to score late in first half thought a nice counter attack down the right hand side by vice captain Amy Cameron whose cross was too powerful for the Subiaco goalkeeper to hold, and midfielder Melissa Pellicciotti took the opportunity to pounce onto the dropped ball and strike it into the back of the net.

Erin Hetherington then made it three for the visitors when she went on a delightful run from midfield, which culminated when she was fouled just outside the edge of the 18-yard box.
The Referee had no choice but to award a free kick. Hetherington stepped up and powered it home to give Bayswater a very satisfying scoreline.
There is a old adage that says that the best defence comes from a strong offence. Generally, the idea is that strong offensive action will preoccupy the opposition and ultimately hinder its ability to mount an opposing counter attack, leading to a strategic advantage.
In saying that, credit must be given to the Bayswater’s defence in Sheena Malcolm, Kerrie Corbett, Zoe Griffith, and Libby Clements who again proved they can perform when required and were too strong for the Subiaco forwards who found it difficult to create any clear cut chances.
Bayswater City is now in second spot with a game in hand.
