By Bill Roumeliotis

South Melbourne FC remain on top of the National Premier Leagues (NPL) Victoria scoreboard after securing a 1 – 0 victory over Hume City FC on Saturday, June 1.

Held away at Hume City Stadium in Broadmeadows, South Melbourne had few notable goal-scoring phases, but were dangerous in their attacks.

They secured victory in the 90th minute thanks to a close-range shot by Marco Jankovic. South Melbourne’s win sees them extend their lead on top of the NPL Victoria scoreboard to four points.

The Greek-heritage club will next play St Albans at Lakeside Stadium on Wednesday, June 12 for a spot in the round of 32 of the Australia Cup (Victoria Group) and to qualify for the semi-final stage of the Victoria ‘Dockerty Cup 2024.’
