Sydney Olympic suffer 2-0 defeat away from home against league leaders Marconi Stallions




Sydney Olympic FC suffer their third loss of the season to a strong Marconi Stallions side in a 2-0 loss at a soggy Marconi stadium on Saturday.

Much like last week against APIA Leichhardt, Olympic came out strong in the first 10 minutes against Marconi with a great attack opportunity from Ferreira on the right hand side, which was saved by the keeper.

New Sydney Olympic signing Go Hayama delivered an impressive performance in the first half, possessing a strong presence on the pitch and filling the small gap in Olympics midfield.

The attacking strength sadly didn’t hold out too long however as Marconi player Anthony Frangie bagged a first half brace to bring the Marconi side into the lead before the second half.

Majority of the match in the second half was played in the midfield, with not many opportunities given for either side.

A strong chance was given to Sydney Olympic in the second half as the ball fell to the feet of Nicola Kuleski inside the box, yet was hit it wide off a half volley.

Despite leading the match, Marconi Stallions delivered an aggressive style of play against Sydney Olympic, being dealt ten fouls and two yellow cards in the first half alone.

Sydney Olympic will face Mt Druitt Town Rangers at home this Sunday as the Belmore team will look to secure there first win of the season. The match will kick of at Belmore Sports Ground at 4pm Sunday.
