Sydney Olympic FC equalise match against Mt Druitt Town Rangers


Sydney Olympic FC and Mt Druitt Town Rangers shared the points in a pulsating 3-3 draw Round 25 of the National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s competition played at Belmore Sports Ground on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts showed their fighting spirit to come back from two-goals down to level the game. Roy O’Donovan and Darcy Burgess scored in the 29th and 31st minute. 

Olympic started the second half energised and found a third equaliser through Fabio Ferreira in stoppage time to snatch a point in what was a high-octane game.

Mt Druitt Town Rangers were comfortable with a two-goal lead after Will Harvey and Solomon-John Monahan-Vaiika scored then new recruit Shunta Nakamura put them ahead again before Sydney Olympic’s late equalise broke their heart.

Speaking post-match, Sydney Olympic coach Labinot Haliti reflected on the fighting spirit of his side.

“We had so many chances in the game, hit the post and everything. Being two down, we showed character to come back into it twice,” Haliti said.

“This has been the way of our season thus far, we perform well but don’t turn them into results.”
