Floreat Athena crowned NPL WA Men’s Champions 2022

·

Floreat Athena have secured the National Premier Leagues Western Australia Men’s Premiership with a sensational 3-2 defeat of Armadale SC on Saturday.

Athena took a two-nil lead, thanks to goals from Bayley Brown-Montgomery (7′) and Robert Petkov (21′ pen.).

Armadale came back fighting but Brown-Montgomery was the hero on the day, scoring an incredible stoppage-time winner to give Athena the victory.

Speaking to Perth Football Podcast, Brown-Montgomery said he knew the team would come away with a win.

“Not sounding cocky but I just knew that we would win. I knew that there was no way [we] would let that slip,” he said.

“I just knew that we would win today. Even though the 90th minute I just knew one of us would score.”

Athena captain, Jason Saldaris, said the team were in it to win it and “got the job done.”

Athena’s victory makes it the third Greek-owned football club across Australia to win an NPL Premiership this year after Sydney Olympic FC and South Melbourne FC.
