Sydney Olympic FC defeated by Western Sydney Wanderers

·

Western Sydney Wanderers have claimed all three points in a blistering match against Sydney Olympic FC at Wanderers Football Park as the hosts ran out 3-2 winners.

The Wanderers opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a clever attacking move. George Antonis switched the play to find Jesse Cameron, who after combining with Marcus Younis crossed into the feet of Ariath Piol in the box.

The striker latched onto a bouncing ball, held off his defender well and laid the ball off to Jarrod Carluccio, who finished emphatically.

Piol doubled the Wanderers’ lead in the 31st minute, after being slid in by Younis off a clinical attacking transition.

However, Sydney Olympic fashioned a fantastic first half comeback, as Adam Parkhouse converted a good finish into the far bottom right corner off a loose ball, before setting up Roy O’Donovan to find the equaliser with a pinpoint cross to the back post.

At the end of the first half, Sydney Olympic’s continued comeback was stagnated, as they were reduced to ten men with no. 3 sent off after picking up a second yellow card.

The Wanderers capitalised and went ahead in the 70th minute as substitutes Zachary Sapsford and Nathanael Blair combined, with the latter finishing off a good cross at the back post.

Sydney Olympic had chances to find an equaliser, and the Wanderers could have extended their advantage, but neither found the back of the net and the home side picked up their second victory of the campaign.
