Ballajura 3 – Kelmscott Roos 1
Match Report by Michael Hoy
Ballajura are still undefeated after they beat Kelmscott Roos on Sunday at Frye Park. Chris Tripoli made his first team debut while Ben Hasler and Michael Hoy returned to the squad as Captain Brendan Divilly, Phil Haddock and Jake Cosenza were all unavailable for the match.
Kelmscott almost opened the scoring soon after the start of the game when a cross from the Kelmscott winger was turned wide by the Roos striker when he really should have finished.
Ballajura almost sneakily went ahead when Ciaran Rogers quick free kick forced the Roos keeper to make a great save as he was busying setting up his wall.
Ballajura woke up and Liam Divilly decided he’d like to cause some trouble for Kelmscott with his mazy runs down the left. One of his runs soon resulted in a goal for Ballajura but not before Toni Sips was deemed to have fouled the Roos striker in the box although replays suggest that there was simulation. Kelmscott didn’t miss from the spot and went 1-0 up.
Divilly soon set up the equaliser when his driving run down the wing resulted in getting to the byline and being able to cut it back for Ben Hasler to score his 2nd in two games.
Divilly soon caused more headaches for Kelmscott when his in swinging corner swung right around and into the back of the net and into the top corner.
Ballajura sealed the game though when a perfect corner from Callum Stuart found the head of Michael Hoy, who bulleted his header into the top corner of the near post to score his first Ballajura goal of his career.
A scintillating run from Toni Sips almost resulted in goal of the season when he broke through the Kelmscott midfield at pace and into the box. He managed to cut the ball back for Daniel Clarkson but he couldn’t finish off the move.
There were some tense moments towards the end of the game when Steve Mammoliti chased down a Kelmscott attacker on the break and fouled him but the referee didn’t award any coloured card and the resulting free kick didn’t trouble Ryan Moss.
Ballajura shored things up and walked away with a massive three points that continues to see them sit on top of the table.

Ballajura Reserves 3 – Kelmscott Roos 2
Match Report by Michael Hoy
Reds Roo-volution Continues!!
A depleted Ballajura Reserves made it three from three with a tight 3-2 win against Kelmscott Roos on Sunday at Frye Park.
Ballajura had a couple of chances early on when Emmanuel Mammoliti was unleashed with his pace but his efforts on goal didn’t really test the keeper. Jayden Vespescu scored his first of the season when He received the ball after some short passing and opened his body and then pulled it back near post from just inside the box.
Kelmscott equalised immediately however when straight from the kickoff they managed to get in behind the Ballajura defence and the Roos shot was saved by Ryan Moss but it was parried into the path of another striker, who couldn’t miss from 6 yards.
Ballajura soon went ahead when Rasheed Shariff used his pace to get in behind the defence and cut back the ball to Vespescu who finished neatly.
Ballajura soon had a penalty when the referee deemed the Kelmscott defender to have fouled Adam Di Rosso in the box. Tomas Divilly took penalty kick duties again but this time failed to convert.
Ballajura put a third into the back of the net when Pete Karreman took advantage of a loose ball in a goalmouth scramble and poked home the winning goal.
Ballajura could have buried the game though when some great work by substitute DJ Kim allowed him to cut the ball back for fellow sub, Paul Le, who blazed over the bar.
Kelmscott pulled a goal back when the Roos attacker managed to latch onto a cross and finish with a diving header but it all proved to be too much for them to halt the Ballajura Reserves.
