Sydney Olympic FC women’s defeat Sydney University

·

Sydney Olympic FC’s women’s team showed no signs of slowing down this campaign as they secured a 2-1 win over Sydney University at Peter Moore Field on Sunday evening.

Buoyed by the form of their impressive attack, and in particular the form of Golden Boot leader Demi Koulizakis, Olympic will have been determined to ensure the three points over Sydney Uni at home. However, Sydney Uni’s triumphant win over the Blacktown Spartans last weekend will no doubt have given the side the impetus needed to take on a top team in the form of Olympic.

Sydney Uni kicked-off the scoring on the day after Baylee Broomhead lofted a mammoth goal kick up the pitch that bested the Olympic defence and was embraced by Talia Kapetanellis, who did well to wriggle the ball away in a one-on-one with a Jets defender and finish into the bottom right corner. 1-0 to Sydney Uni in the 15th minute.

Olympic would not take long to respond as Ebony McCue-Shore buried a robust header into the back of the net in the 22nd minute, yet again showing she is an excellent threat at corners for the home side.

Rochelle Borromeo would deliver the winner for Olympic with an emphatic hit from distance that bested Broomhead and deflected past the goalkeeper and in for 2-1.
