Sorrento and Balcatta Showcase the Beautiful Game

Congratulations to both Sorrento and Balcatta for showcasing State League football in an epic State League Cup Final; Unfortunately we were unable to attend but have watched the highlights and it looked to be an absolute cracker of a game.

Both teams went out looking to play attacking football, and despite going 2-0 down Balcatta roared back and managed to pull level and force extra time at 3-3. Darryl Platton popped up with the winner from a Stuart Montgomery corner, meaning Sorrento had defended the trophy they won last year for the first time. Balcatta were that very sad thing in sport, gallant losers.

The Reserves Cup final which surprising went ahead with both sides wearing white shorts and white socks, saw first division Cockburn City beat Perth SC 2-1, proving that in cup finals there is no such ting as home-ground advantage; The finals all being played at Perth’s BGC stadium.

In the Under 18’s Floreat Athena made it a miserable day for Balcatta, Tommy Bramley’s goal being the one that took the cup to Litis Stadium.

Congratulation to all the winners and also those teams who made the final and made a game of it.
