Phoenix young guns go close
Junior soccer was on display at the weekend when two of the South West Phoenix’s younger teams hit the pitch.
The under-13 side played at the WML Stadium against a strong Perth Glory team in the semi-final of the Football West Natioanl Premier Leagues Cup competition.
After conceding two goals in the first half, the young Phoenix battled well in the second to score a late goal, but despite a strong effort late in the game, they fell short losing 2-1.
Wesley Jodrell scored the Phoenix’s only goal from a penalty in the one-goal loss.
It was heartbreak for the under-14 team, who finished 1-1 with ECU Joondalup at the end of regulation time.
The game went to penalties, which was won by Joondalup 4-2.
