Conference League Southern Round 11 Review


The top of the table clash in the Southern Conference League on Sunday afternoon coughed up a real treat as Camden Tigers overcame White City by 3-2.
The match was scoreless at half time, but exploded in the second period with Bazdaric putting the Tigers in front with a goal on 57 minutes.
Smutek made it two on 71 minutes, and Green put Camden 3-0, up and in a seemingly unbeatable position with his goal in the 76th minute.
But White City kicked into gear, scoring twice late on via Kabbara in the 86th, and Alavanja in the 90th, to pull it back to 2-3.
But it was too little, too late, as White City relinquished their position at the top of the ladder for the first time in 2008, with Camden Tigers the new front runners.
Lilli Pilli took Greenisland apart at Knight Park, running out comprehensive 7-0 winners in a one-sided match.
Karim grabbed his second brace in recent weeks, scoring on 16 and 72 minutes, and team mate Beare did likewise with goals in the 53rd and 82nd minutes.
But Byrne went one better than his compatriots, scoring a hatrick with goals in the 33rd, 62nd and 68th to round off the day?s proceedings.
If you didn?t think lightning could strike twice in the same place, you better think again, as Hakoah disproved that theory with a 13-0 destruction of Fairfield Bulls, the second time this season they have beaten the hapless Bulls by the same scoreline.
Unfortunately the goalscorers were not provided, but I hope to supply these details at a later date when they come to hand.
Nevertheless, the win kept Hakoah in 3rd position on the ladder, with the best attack in the league with 45 goals in 9 matches, as they look forward next week to the visit of league leaders Camden Tigers to E.S. Marks Field.
The Sydney Cedars-Colo Colo Wanderers match at Parry Park was washed out, andwill be played at a venue and date yet to be decided.
Gazy Lansvale had the bye this week.
