Floreat Athena FC claimed the 2020 NPLWA Men’s Final Series Cup after a convincing 4-0 win against Perth SC at Dorrien Gardens on Sunday night.  

The only major Greek football team in Western Australia, Floreat Athena have been crowned Western Australian State Champions a total of five times, along with claiming six State Cups.

“I’m happy for the everyone involved with our football club and a special mention to the younger players, who have all stepped up and played their part this season. I had every faith in each one of them and tonight was a great team performance.”

While two goals up at half time, Floreat grew worried after Marco Santalucia was sent off for a second yellow card, being down to 10 men. It turns out that 10 men was all they needed, as they scored another two goals after the break, keeping a clean sheet.

Floreat’s Nicholas Ambrogio bagged a brace during the match, with goals by Liam Murray and Ludovic Boi bringing a convincing victory for the squad.

Ambrogio won the Gary Marocchi Medal as the best player in the final.

“I thought dominated the game and soaked up their pressure especially after going down to 10 men,” Ambrogio said.

“It’s a shame we didn’t win the title, but we’ll celebrate tonight and set ourselves for a big season in 2021.”
