SOCCER: A battle royale saw Bunbury Catholic College take on Manea Senior College at Bunbury’s Soccerdrome. 

Bunbury Catholic College started strongly and could easily have been two goals up in the first ten minutes. 

Relying on long-ball clearances and dropping long-balls into forward areas, Bunbury Catholic College took a  1-0 lead into half time. 

But the second half bought a rally from Manea who passed well out of defence to create scoring opportunities. 

They began to dominate possession in the second half and leveled the score. 

A late penalty gave Manea a 2-1 victory.
