Sydney FC dominates Sydney Olympic in crushing 3-0 win

·

Sydney FC continued its push for a first NPL NSW Men’s Premiership title defeating fellow high flyers Sydney Olympic 3-0 at Belmore Sports Ground on Saturday.

Sydney FC were justifiably proud of their win and the young players celebrated with some passion in the dressing rooms after the encounter. It was a much more sombre mood though in the Sydney Olympic room.

The first real chance of the encounter arrived in the 3rd minute when Adam Parkhouse fired over the crossbar for the home side from close range.

In the 41st minute Sydney FC had a half chance when a cross from left reached Oscar Priestman in the middle but he flicked the ball over the intended target. It was their first for the game.

After the game Sydney FC coach Jim Van Weeren was very happy to have secured all three points at Belmore against a tough Sydney Olympic side.

“Olympic is a good team and this is a very tough place to come, so I thought our boys showed maturity beyond their years tonight playing here,” Van Weeren said of his team.

His counterpart Ante Juric was clearly disappointed to have lost the game and a slight edge on the 2022 Premiership.

“Disappointing is the word especially at home where we dominated the first half and I don’t think they had a shot,” he said.

The weekend saw Northbridge Bulls star, Nathan Dimou score for his team securing a win against Leichhardt APIA at Lambert Park on Saturday night along with Mitch Stamatellis securing the win for Rockdale Ilinden at their home ground against the Sutherland Sharks on Sunday.
