Four teams are level on nine points at the top of the Belt Up Amateur Premier Division after Maddington White City’s 100% start was ended by Kwinana United.
Maddington remain top on goal difference from Kwinana, but they were second best at Nikola Tesla Reserve.
It was all square at the break, Jose Zuniga’s penalty for the hosts cancelling out Sean Troup’s opener. But United stepped it up and Troup re-established the lead before Jake Daley made it 3-1. Daley was later red-carded in a match which also had nine bookings but Kwinana saw the game out to take home the points.
UWA Nedlands are third after they won 3-0 at Leeming Strikers. Manuel Dominguez Piccinini, Abel Thomas-Hy and Rodrigo Cabezas Navarro were the goalscorers.
In fourth are Quinns, who confirmed it was a good day to be on the road with a 3-1 victory at Jaguar FC. An early flurry of goals had Quinns 2-1 up after only 13 minutes – Jack Knowles and Liam Hunt for Quinns coming either side of Cyrille Isambert’s effort for Jaguar. Perhaps the only surprise after that was the next goal didn’t arrive until the final minute when Wayne Carter sealed the points for the visitors.
The bottom two sides met at Carine Open Space as Hamersley Rovers and Queens Park went in search of their first points of the season. And, of course, the result went in the way of the away side as Queens Park won 3-2 thanks to two second-half goals from Justine Kaupa.
South West Phoenix slipped to fifth spot, two points behind the leading pack, after a 3-3 draw away to North Perth United. Lydon Hodgkiss hit two for Phoenix, while Javier Pineres Mestre saved a point for United with his side’s third on 75 minutes.
The one home team to win this week were Wembley Downs, who moved to sixth with a 2-0 win over Joondalup United. Diarmaid Ryng boxed off the victory with the clincher in stoppage time.
