Men’s Soccer

Collie Power entertained Manjimup at Roche Park on Sunday for a 1st vs 2nd clash.

A win for Collie would see them go 6 points clear and with just 7 games remaining, the title would be theirs to lose.

Manjimup would take an early lead after a well hit effort from outside the penalty area, evaded the outstretched Rhett Sutherland in goals.

Collie was to respond not long after when Jeremy Mandry scored an absolute belter from distance to make it 1-1, which was the score line at half time.

The second half was dominated by the hosts, but as it had been so in the two previous meetings against their biggest threat to title success, Manjimup’s well drilled defensive setup held firm.

Collie did have their chances to go ahead but it seemed the big occasion and massive opportunity weighed heavily on them in at least a mental sense.

Collie held the large majority of possession for the entire half but ultimately, could not find a way to the full three points.

In the end, the two powerhouses had to settle for a point each.

Manjimup would have been the more frustrated of the two as Collie still has a 3 point gap and a largely superior goal difference.

The race for title winning glory could come down to the very last match day.

Women’s Soccer

The women’s side hosted a depleted Australind contingency in wet, cold and windy conditions.

After an early arm wrestle, Jayme Lee Smith was able to get a first half hat trick including a brilliant chipped effort over a helpless goalkeeper.

Australind were able to score a consolidation.

But for the rest of the game, the hosts were on hand to keep their opponents at bay to record their first win since the association split the women’s division into two.

Collie Women’s have a bye this coming weekend.
