Back-to-back victories for South Melbourne FC

·

By Bill Roumeliotis.

South Melbourne FC claimed back-to-back victories in the Victorian National Premier Leagues (NPL) after defeating Moreland City 1-0 over the weekend.

South Melbourne claimed the win with some difficulty, as they scored with Harrison Sawyer in the fourth minute of stoppage time (90+4′) with a penalty.

The Greek team had the territorial advantage but their players lacked clarity in the final effort, and this continued when Moreland were reduced to 10 men due to Tzougidis being sent off for a ‘carat’ hit on Andy Brennan.

The suffocating superiority of South Melbourne bore fruit at the end of the match by a penalty that came from an opponent’s hand in the large area and was successfully executed by Sawyer.
