Maddington down champions North Perth

Maddington White City started their 2021 Belt Up Amateur Premier Division season with an exciting 3-2 win over champions North Perth United on Sunday.

Andres Gonzalez gave City the lead inside two minutes, but Scott Wrightson quickly levelled for the visitors from the penalty spot.

Maddington retook control in the second half with two goals from Samir Ramos. And although Wrightson netted his second, United were unable to find the equaliser.
