Bunbury sees red after 3-0 loss to Armadale
Armadale continued their solid form with a 3-0 victory of Bunbury Forum Force at Payne Park on Saturday.
Just seven days after a shock 2-0 victory over Sorrento, the Reds were at it again with another impressive display.
Bunbury was the better side in the first half but were unable to capitalise on their opportunities with scores deadlocked at 0-0 at half-time.
Jon Brooks, Martin Ryan and Aidan Downs were all culprits late in the first half, getting themselves in the right position before failing to find the back of the net.
The best chance of the half fell to Ryan whose blistering right-foot strike was met by a sensational outstretched save by Armadale keeper Cyril Sharrock just moments before the break.
In a bizarre half-time incident, Armadale's Jack Bamber was given a yellow card. Bamber, who was an unused substitute for the Reds, got carded for abuse towards match referee Hugh Best.
The Force continued to press in the second half, with Kane again having a chance but this time it was wide of the goals.
It was the visitors who drew first blood in the 60th minute with Josh Maddison striking one of out Bunbury goalie Ryan Mongomery's reach against the run of play.
This brought the Reds to life as they began to dominate the possession against a lifeless Bunbury.
One shortly became two as Ravi Kuppusamy's pinpoint pass found Tom Biss who struck the ball sweetly into the back of the net.
Kuppusamy turned scorer in the 72nd minute after some brilliant run down the middle from Sam Loveless who was influential all afternoon.
Kuppusamy's strike put the match out of Bunbury's reached and lifted Armadale off the bottom of the ladder with their second consecutive win.
In a sour note for the Reds, Nick Viaggio suffered a leg injury midway through the first half and played no further part in the match.
