Sydney Olympic women’s team top the NPL standings


By Takis Triadafillou

Sydney Olympic women’s team climbed to the top of the National Premier League Women’s standings on Thursday night after defeating Macarthur Rams 2 – 1 at Peter Moore Field.

The match started aggressively from Macarthur’s side, closing down Sydney Olympic tightly and marking strongly.

Sydney Olympic gradually balanced the game, making the opposing team close its area. Their efforts paid off when in the 40th minute, the women’s team earned a corner which Koulizakis executed with mathematical precision and “hung” the ball over the opposing goalkeeper, making it 1-0 for Sydney Olympic.

Macarthur pushed back and began to pressure Sydney Olympic in their area, and just five minutes later in the 45th minute, Brown equalised, bringing the game level.

Sydney Olympic’s Peak put the Blue and Whites ahead again in the 47th minute with another goal.

In the second half, Macarthur played great football, closing down Sydney Olympic on half of the pitch. With the changes made by coach Geof Abrahams, he gave breath to the team until the end of the game, finding the women’s team victorious and first in the standings.

Sydney Olympic will next face the Newcastle Jets on Sunday, June 2 at 5 pm at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility.
