The result lifts City to seventh ahead of this weekend’s clash with neighbours Mandurah.Rockingham have accounted for Forrestfield, Ashfield and Fremantle in their last three outings and sit less than a game behind fifth-placed Shamrock Rovers. Rockingham’s reserves and U18s also enjoyed wins at the weekend by 6-1 and 3-2 scorelines respectively.
