Inter Lions 2 v Sydney Juniors 0 
Inter Lions played the near perfect second-half to claim the Under-10 Boys Champion of Champions title for 2010 against Sydney Juniors. Patrick Scibilio and Liam Ivancic scored once each in the second period, wrapping up a very impressive run for the Canterbury Association side that scored thirty-two goals (conceding one) en-route to the grand final.
Played in wet conditions, both sides exchanged a good share of possession with Mohamed Najjar and Branden Meyer impressive for Sydney Juniors.
Inter Lions playmaker Ramy Najjarine saw his left-footed inswinger ricochet off the crossbar in the 5? minute, before forcing the Reds goalkeeper into a good save moments later with a shot from a metre inside the penalty-area.
Lions goalkeeper Daniel Di Stefano was quick to come off his line and make a goal saving clearance in the closing stages of the first-half, much to the despair of the Reds supporters.
After the break, following some initial pressure from Sydney Juniors, Inter Lions took control with a fine passing game. Patrick Scibilio found the opening goal with a fine turn and shot on the edge of the penalty-area, out of the reach of the goalkeeper.
Inter put the result beyond doubt in the final minutes of the match as Liam Ivancic picked up a loose ball inside the penalty-area before driving the effort into the back of the net for the 2-0 win.
In trying conditions for all players with the constant downpour, both sides certainly did show skill and maturity beyond their young years, signalling a bright future for football in this country.

West Pennant Hills 2 v Forest Killarney 3
Forest Killarney produced a mammoth comeback to overturn a two-goal deficit and defeat West Pennant Hills to win the Under-11 Champion of Champions title.
Trailing 2-0 with less than 10? minutes, the Manly Warringah side scored two late goals to send the match into extra-time, before Ben Koop sealed the win with a memorable golden goal in the very damp conditions at Valentine Sports Park.
Mitchell Blow remained composed to send West Pennant Hills into the lead when one-on-one with the goalkeeper on 7? minutes as both sides battled the wet conditions for the remainder of the half.
Forest Killarney should have found an equaliser with the last chance of the half, though Ben Koop failed to convert Sam Hawkins? assist, volleying his effort wide of goal.
After the break, Ryan Frank played an exceptional floated effort over the Forest defence to send Peter West on goal. West?s diagonal effort with his left peg finished inside the right-hand post, the ball finding its way underneath the goalkeeper?s outstretched arms.
With victory almost certain, Forest Killarney came to life pulling a goal back via Ben Koop. The Forest number 10 hit a powerful free-kick from the edge of the penalty-area into the back of the net, all too hot to handle for the West Pennant Hills goalkeeper who did get a hand to the ball.
In almost the last play of regular time, Emerson Brown sent Ryan Cullam through on goal. The latter, with the cheers of the supporters behind him, hit a sensational effort across the face of goal and into the bottom corner to send the match into extra-time.
Ben Koop wrapped up proceedings in the 3? minute of extra-time with a neat turn and shot inside the penalty-area to score his side?s third.

Balgownie 1 v Rockdale City Suns  0
Illawarra Champions Balgownie provided their fans with a resolute team performance as they outlasted Rockdale City Suns to win the 2010 U12 boys McDonald?s Champion of Champions.
Midfielder Matthew Galanti bundled in the only goal of the match in the 40th minute after a well delivered corner was not cleared by the Rockdale City Suns defence.
St. George based side Rockdale had the early momentum in the match with Aleksandar Najdovski and Jake Borromeo proving to be a dangerous combination up front for the Suns.
Moderate rain restricted both sides, nevertheless Rockdale continued to try and break down Balgownie by passing their way through the Balgownie midfield and defence.
Balgownie enjoyed some success on the counter attack and began to grow in confidence the longer they were able to keep the Suns at bay.
Whilst the first half failed to yield any clear cut chances it was Balgownie who started the brighter in the second, with forward Tory Musumeci pushing his shot wide after a fantastic turn of pace down the right hand flank.
Balgownie began to dominate proceedings and looked extremely dangerous on the counter attack and off set pieces.
Balgownie were rewarded for their relentless pressure in the 40th minute when Matthew Galanti scram led home the winner from inside the six yard box.
Rockdale became increasingly frustrated at how Balgownie were able to restrict their game across the park and that frustration boiled over with two red cards in the closing moments of the match.

Gladesville Ravens 3 v AC United 1
Gladesville Ravens defeated AC United 3-1 in the Under-13 Champion of Champions grand-final in dramatic scenes.
With the constant rain throughout the encounter, and with the scores locked at 1-1 with only a few minutes remaining, the Ravens scored two late goals in quick succession to seal the 3-1 win.
Adam Barbaro blasted the Ravens ahead in the 13? minute with a fabulous free-kick from the edge of the penalty-area finding its way into the bottom right-hand corner.
The lead was certainly deserved for the Gladesville Hornsby Association side who settled best into the match despite the conditions.
AC United did finish the first-half strongly with Daniel Jabou squandering a golden chance with the goal at his mercy. Following a fumble by the Ravens goalkeeper from a routine cross, Jabou hit his shot on the turn inches wide of an empty goal.
Lucas Ruzic nearly found the equaliser in the last minute of the half when the tall defender rose highest to head a corner from the right-flank inches wide of the target.
AC United didn?t have to wait long to draw level as Justin Bertovic was handed penalty-kick duties after the referee awarded the side a penalty for a clumsy Ravens challenge inside the penalty-area. Bertovic remained composed and finished with some power, driving his effort down the middle of the goal.
With less than 2? minutes of normal time remaining, Jackson Warwick scored the match-winner with a fine finish on the edge of the penalty-area. Warwick picked up a loose ball following a loose clearance and found the back of the net, much to the delight of the Ravens supporters.
Ethan Awad added further cheers to the supporters, and Ravens players, with a third goal 1? minute later. Awad was played one-on-one with the oncoming goalkeeper, and despite a heavy deflection by the AC United goalkeeper Chris Yako, the ball finished underneath the crossbar.

Burwood 1 v North Sydney Bears 2
North Sydney Bears claimed the 2010 U14 boy?s McDonald?s Champion of Champions title after a thrilling extra-time victory over Canterbury Association outfit Burwood.
Goals from Burwood?s Adem Keskin and North Sydney Bears? Giuseppe Costa either side of the break ended regular time with the match deadlocked at 1-1.
North Sydney Bears midfielder Alfred Tagliaferro sent the vocal crowd into raptures late in extra time golden goal after slotting home after an excellent team move to win the game 2-1.
The match began with both sides exchanging long range efforts in what was a fast paced opening.
North Sydney Bears began to dominate proceedings with wingers Christian Calderan and Lorenzo Icardi causing the Burwood defence all sorts of problems.
Burwood defender Diren Reddy was outstanding in thwarting many of the North Sydney attacks in what was an inspirational display in the first half.
Against the run of play, Burwood had a goal to Joshua Nohra disallowed in the 29th minute for offside.
The shift in momentum seemed to lift Burwood and they capitalised in the 32nd minute.
Burwood midfielder Adem Keskin found himself in the right place at the right time when a Burwood corner was headed back into the mixer towards Keskin whose mistimed shot lobbed the outstretched keeper to give Burwood the lead.
The second half break seemed to work wonders for North Sydney who came out all guns blazing in the second half.
Bears midfielder Alfred Tagliaferro had the first chance in the second half after weaving through three Burwood defenders only the push his shot across goal.
In the 51st minute, North Sydney midfielder Jack Osborn was denied by a fantastic save from Robert Pollicina. Burwood failed to properly clear a corner which fell invitingly for Osborn to volley home, however Pollicina stood strong and denied the midfielder with an excellent diving save.
North Sydney became increasingly frustrated with the resolute Burwood defence and it seemed something special was going to be needed to level the scores.
In stepped up midfielder Giuseppe Costa. The Bears number 10 struck home a wonderful driving free kick from 30 yards out into the top right hand corner to level the scores.
North Sydney buoyed by the equaliser dominated the remainder of the second half with chances falling to both Tagliaferro and Costa ? the match ended in regular time 1-1.
Extra time ensued, and it was Burwood who missed the first real opportunity in the 14th minute of extra time, Henry Xu delivered and inch perfect cross for Ben Cortese who put his shot wide.
As the game appeared to head into towards penalties midfielder Christian Calderan played a wonderfully timed through ball for Tagliaferro who cut inside from the left to beat the keeper and complete an excellent comeback.

Figtree 2 v Wakehurst 1
Illawarra Junior Football Champions Figtree reigned supreme in the U15 boys McDonald?s Champion of Champions final after 2-1 win over Manly-Warringah Association outfit Wakehurst.
Figtree started the brighter with Jack Reay stinging the hands of Wakehurst keeper Michael Domjen in the 7th minute with a thunderous drive from the right hand corner of the 18 yard box.
Wakehurst were slow to shake off the nerves of the occasion but sprung into action thanks to forward Andrew Green whose superb solo run to beat three players ended with his shot being well saved by keeper Scott Borst.
Figtree then spurned a number of good chances to Danny Lazarevski and Bradley Acev.
Wakehurst then began to dominate the match with Cameron Ambrose missing an excellent opportunity in the 20th minute to put his side ahead after his one-on-one chance was saved by the outstretched leg of Scott Borst.
A minute later, James Williamson dragged his shot wide after being put through from a ball over the top from midfield.
In the 28th minute, Figtree responded with a chance to Jack Reay saved by Michael Domjen. Bradley Acev broke down the right hand flank and crossed in for Jack Reay to head home. Reay was denied from inside the six yard box thanks to a spectacular save.
The second half resumed with Figtree dominating the midfield battle and began asserting their authority on the match.
The pressure finally told on the Wakehurst defence after a shot from Danny Lararevski in the 40th minute was not cleared by the defence with the ball falling to lanky forward Darren Buckley. Buckly bundled the ball home from inside the six yard box to put Figtree ahead, 1-0.
As the rain began to pour, it was Figtree who took advantage of conditions a defensive error allowed Acev to tap in a poor back pass to double Figtree?s lead in the 51st minute and all but seal the match.
Wakehurst through the kitchen sink at the Figtree defence in the final 10 minutes only to be denied by some excellent goalkeeping and defence.
The pressure finally told with Matthew Varjavandi pulling one back for Wakehurst deep into injury time after a defensive mistake.

Queens Park 0 v Brookvale 3
Manly Association?s Brookvale were crowned NSW Champions of Champions in the Under 16 Boys category on Sunday morning with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Queens Park, hailing from the Eastern Suburbs Association.
Mother Nature produced very wintry conditions for this season decider at Valentine Sports Park, with rain falling intermittently throughout, amidst a cross field breeze that could not have made the setting any more uncomfortable for the brave spectators.
Brookvale took to the conditions early on, holding possession impressively as they searched for openings in the Queens Park rearguard.
The game?s opening goal came via an likely avenue on 13 minutes, when Daniel Kastropil?s left footed, in-swinging corner eluded a defender at the near post to sneak into the net, putting Brookvale 1-0 up and sending their fans into a frenzy.
Queens Park had a great opportunity to equalize just five minutes later, when James Simonetta intercepted a throw out by Brookvale?s goalkeeper, Morgan McCarthy, out wide, and immediately sent in a low cross towards goal.
David Newhouse met the ball on the edge of the six yard box, and cracked a shot first time`, only for McCarthy to make amends with a brilliant save, getting down low to smother the ball in the slippery conditions.
In the tense environment of a Champions of Champions final, it was refreshing to see an act of sportsmanship, when Brookvale?s keeper, McCarthy, went down on 23 minutes, following a heavy collision in the penalty box.
There was concern for the Brookvale youngster as he lay on the turf, and to see Queens Park coach, Mark Bryant, race onto the park with genuine concern and to add his assistance, it provided the players with an example of true sportsmanship and how the game should be played. 
Three minutes later and Queens Park threatened again, and once more it was Newhouse, his header at the end of a Benjamin Bryant free kick being well saved by McCarthy in the Brookvale goal.
Brookvale responded in the 27th minute when Kastropil?s mazy run took him past a number of defenders, his cut back being deflected wide by a stray foot of a Queens Park defender.
The half time whistle brought a little respite for all concerned, none more than the freezing spectators, all eager for what promised to be an enthralling second period.
Both teams came out after the rest jostling for possession, both looking to take control of the game and make a real go at it, the rain not letting up for a second.
Kastropil hit a pearler of a free kick in the 47th minute from fully 25 yards, with Queens Park goal keeper, Yossi Segal, doing ever so well to hold onto the leather in difficult conditions.
Queens Park replied when substitute, Louis Gasparinatos, stole possession outside the penalty box, his resultant chipped effort just going wide of the mark.
Then came a decisive moment in the match, with Brookvale grabbing a second goal in the 51st minute, and virtually sealing the result.
Brookvale?s Dane Cox won possession with a fierce tackle in the middle of the park, immediately playing a short pass to his striker, Jordan Hema, who received the ball some 25 yards out and with his back to goal.
Hema used his robust frame to turn his marker, and let fly with a 20 yard grass cutter that skidded off surface and flew into the bottom corner of the net.
Brookvale raised the intensity from this point on, remaining well structured and focused, refusing to be outdone by a Queens Park side who relentlessly tried to get back into the match.
The side from the Manly Association had time for some icing on the cake, when Kastropil was at it again in the 67th minute, beating three defenders in a dribbling run that took him into the Queens Park penalty area.
Kastropil had the presence of mind to cut the ball back, and midfielder, John Stambolieff, hit it first time from the penalty spot, his shot hitting the top corner of the net to seal a fantastic victory.
For Queens Park, best on the day were left winger, Harry Mahoney, whose brilliant ball control and wizardry on the left flank left many of Brookvale?s players helpless in their attempts to stop him. Centre forward Michael Linn, worked tirelessly all day and was a nuisance for the Brookvale defence as he chased any loose ball up front. Midfielder and captain Benjamin Bryant, kept working and running as he tried valiantly to lift his team?s intensity.
For the Champions, Brookvale, best on a memorable day were left footed Daniel Kastropil, who started the game as left back and then pushed forward into a left flank role, and was influential every time he handled the ball, beating players at will, scoring one goal and setting up another. Central defender and captain Matt Ryder had a real skipper?s knock, strong in the air, read the play well, and marshalled his troops as they continually kept Queens Park out. Centre midfielder, Dane Cox, was solid in the tackle all day, winning possession many a time, and often the initiator of many of his team?s raids at the Queens Park goal.

Bass Hill 0 v Sylvania Heights 1
Sutherland Association side Sylvania Heights has won the 2010 U17 boy?s McDonald?s Champion of Champions after defeating Bankstown based side Bass Hill, 1-0.
In what was a tight affair yielding few chances, Sylvania took home the trophy thanks to a converted penalty by Matthew Koelma.
Bass Hill started the match the brighter, with Abdul Kara-Ali testing Mitchell Foster twice from distance inside the first 10 minutes.
As the rain began to get heavier, the match turned into a war of attrition with a midfield arm wrestle the feature of most of the first half.
Sylvania tested the Bass Hill defence off a number of set pieces which Bass Hill seemed to have no answer for in defence.
The first clear cut opportunity of the match fell to Koelma in the 35th minute who missed from inside the 18 yard box after Lucas Taylor skinned three Bass Hill defenders down the right hand touch line to lay the ball back, only for Koelma to push it wide.
The second half was very much following the script of the first with limited chances created by either side.
It was only until the 65th minute when Taylor and Koelma missed excellent chances to put Sylvania ahead that saw the match go up a few gears with Sylvania putting Bass Hill under enormous pressure.
The pressure final told on Bass Hill with a clumsy foul handing Sylvania a penalty on the 72nd minute. Koelma made no mistake form the spot with a fierce effort. Michael Hudson did well to get a hand to the shot but it was too hot to handle.
Bass Hill pressed for an equaliser for the remainder of the match, but were too anxious to deliver the final ball in the attacking third.
Sylvania Heights held on and claimed the title 1-0.

Hills Hawks 4 v Lilli Pilli 3 
Hills Hawks from the Gladesville-Hornsby Association has won the 2010 U18 men?s McDonald?s Champion of Champions after an entertaining 4-3 victory over Sutherland based side Lilli Pilli.
The match started with both sides full of running with Hills Hawks enjoying the dominance of possession.
Lilli Pilli seemed happy to catch the Hawks on the counter and almost capitalised early on with efforts to Christopher Boland and Luke Wethered going wide.
Hills Hawks however took the lead in the 11th minute after Dookee Chung received a square ball five metres outside the penalty area, took one touch and buried a drive into the top right hand corner leaving no chance for Nathan Storey.
Lilli Pilli soon equalised in the 17th minute after Ned Stelzer delivered an inch perfect cross for Christopher Boland to tap in at the back post.
Hills Hawks began to dominate proceedings and capitalised on the pressure with Vincent Gulisano coolly slotting home a cross past the oncoming keeper in the 36th minute, 2-1 to Hills Hawks.
Moments before the half time whistle Redah Hassan rattled the cross bar for Lilli Pilli from a 25 yard free kick which would have levelled the scores.
It was Hills Hawks who consolidated their lead before half time with a well drilled low free kick by Matthew Brown from outside the penalty beating the keeper making it 3-1 just before the half time whistle.
The second half resumed with Lilli Pilli dominating proceedings, and their pressure paid off with Boland scoring his second goal of the afternoon after tapping in from a defensive mistake, 3-2.
Lilli Pilli continued to press in search of an equaliser and it was Boland again who stepped up for the Sutherland Champions. And inch perfect cross reached Boland just inside the penalty area and the Lilli Pilli forward made no mistake slotting home to complete his hatrick, 3-3.
Lilli Pilli missed several opportunities and were dominating the match, but the tide turned after Jay Woods received his marching orders following a second bookable offence in the 66th minute.
It was heartbreak for Lilli Pilli as Hills Hawks regained the lead in the 82nd minute courtesy of an own goal from Elias Kheir. Matthew Brown?s volley from a poorly cleared corner took a significant deflection off the midfielder and trickled over the line to make it 4-3.
Just when the drama appeared to be over, Hawks defender Toby Reading received his marching orders for a clumsy challenge inside the penalty area gifting Lilli Pilli an opportunity to once again level the scores.
Ned Stelzer?s penalty was wonderfully saved by Hawks keeper Nick Starr who guessed correctly and parried Stelzers penalty out for a corner.
Lilli Pilli forward Christopher Boland would again be denied in the final stages following a great save by Starr.
Hawks held on for the win 4-3.

Roselea 3 v Kemps Creek United 2
In a highly entertaining U21 final, Gladesville Hornsby outfit Roselea defeated Southern Districts Champions Kemps Creek United to win the 2010 U21 men?s McDonald?s Champion of Champions 3-2.
Roselea opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 8th minute courtesy of midfielder Morteza Hossieny.
Roselea soon doubled their advantage after goal scorer Morteza Hossieny turned provider, delivering an inch perfect cross for Kyle Rosewell to slot home in the 15th minute.
Kemps Creek United began to find their feet in the match and pulled one back against the run of play in the 27th minute courtesy of forward Mohamed Bangao who headed home a well delivered cross from the left hand flank.
The remainder of the first half played out with both sides enjoying spells of pressure yielding a number of chances.
Soon after the break, Roselea re-established their two-goal buffer courtesy of Rosewell who drilled home from inside the 18 yard box.
Kemps Creek United would go on to pressure Roselea throughout the second half in search of a way back into the match.

Over 35 Men 
Seven Hills United 1 v Brookvale 2 
Manly Association?s Brookvale were crowned NSW Champions of Champions in the Over 35s Mens category on Sunday afternoon, snatching a 2-1 victory over Seven Hills United from the jaws of defeat.
Mother Nature continued to produce intermittent rain throughout as it had done all day, with both teams trying valiantly to stay on their feet and keep possession away from their opponents early on.
Brookvale?s industrious midfielder, Wayne Pierce, almost gave his side an early lead in the 12th minute, his grass cutter from 20 yards gobbled up by Seven Hills keeper, Cosimo Bartone, at the second attempt, after the ball had skidded on the wet surface before bobbling up and hitting the custodian on the melon.
Ricky Mancini responded for Seven Hills in the 21st minute, looping his header over after reaching a long free kick played in from the halfway box.
The match was fairly even in the first half, with neither side able to take the ascendancy, but Dean Harding spurned a great chance to put Brookvale in front on 36 minutes.
A defence splitting pass found Harding in acres of space, and the striker controlled the ball as he entered the penalty area, shooting low, but Bartone in the Seven Hills goal kept his eye on the ball to keep Brookvale at bay.
The second half looked like it may drift towards a stalemate, and desperately needed a goal to shake things up.
On 53 minutes, a goal bound shot following a Seven Hills corner was handled on the line by Brookvale?s Damian Clarke-Bruce, who was promptly shown the red card by the referee.
Brookvale?s keeper, Domenic Szambowski, danced along his goal line in a vain attempt to put the kicker off, but Ricky Mancini expertly sent him the wrong way to give Seven Hills a 1-0 lead.
As often is the case, the team with ten men start to dominate proceedings somewhat, as they show a little desperation to get back in the match, and this was the case here as Brookvale lifted their intensity.
Brookvale?s Wayne Pierce started his personal assault on the Seven Hills goal in the 58th minute, his downward header from a few yards hitting a defender?s legs and somehow staying out.
Skipper Simon Euers replicated that effort for Brookvale in the 72nd minute, his text book header bouncing down, up, onto the crossbar and away to safety.
A nasty incident in the 84th minute resulted in a red card to Riccardo Porreca, the Seven Hills left winger, restoring parity in terms of numbers, but probably giving the Brookvale side that last little push to show a bit more urgency.
On 88 minutes it was Pierce again who got on the end of a long cross, his chest and half volley hit too sweet and ending up in the arms of the Seven Hills keeper, Bartone.
Just when the clock ticked over the ninety minute mark, and the match seemed done and dusted, Brookvale conjured up an equalizer when it had looked as if luck had deserted them on the day.
Wayne Pierce half hit a shot across the face of the goal, the ball taking a wicked deflection as it spun mid air, and striker, Stuart Cleary, nudged it over the line from a yard as he outmuscled Bartone in the Seven Hills goal.
Seven Hills were shell shocked, and within sixty seconds had seen the Champions of Champions trophy snatched from their grasp.
Straight from the start of extra time, Brookvale?s Cleary won his team a corner kick, and Wayne Pierce ? who else?! ? produced a dramatic golden goal winner, curling the ball in direct to grab the winning goal.
You just had to feel for the Seven Hills side, who had done well to soak up the Brookvale pressure at times within the first hour, scoring seemingly against the run of play, holding on until injury time, before suffering the agony of two goals within minutes at the death.
Cosimo Bartone kept his side in the match with some telling saves at crucial times of the match, Ricky Mancini was classy up front holding the ball up well for his onrushing team mates, whilst Filippo Romano cleaned up well defensively with some timely tackles.
Credit to the Champions, Brookvale, who just never gave up. All attempts on goal seemed to bounce over or wide on a day that looked as if the spoils were not going to go their way, but they kept at it until they received their just rewards.
Wayne Pierce was best on field on a memorable day, with the midfielder displaying a high work rate, fierce tackling defensively, and always looked most likely to score, whilst skipper Simon Euers held the team together in the middle of the park, and kept his troopers going forward when all seemed lost.

Over 45 Men
Redfern 1 v Southern Districts 5
Southern Districts claimed the 2010 Over 45 Champion of Champions title after a resounding 5-1 victory over Redfern in rain swept conditions at Valentine Sports Park on Saturday.
Sam Lentini?s men were far more superior for their counterparts as the goals commenced from the 14th minute when a delightful corner from Vince Lentini was met by a thunderous header from former Sydney United Legend Velimir Kupresak that gave Southern Districts the early lead.
It was two-nil in the 19th minute when Lentini produced an inch perfect pass to John Amoroso who beat the offside trap and tapped in Southern Districts second of the game.
It was all Southern Districts as they continued to pile on the pressure and a third goal was seen in the 30th minute as Amoroso again proved his ability as he calmly slotted the ball beyond Redfern keeper W. Holzer.
Redfern to their credit continued to battle and got their just reward in the 41st minute when R.Allen notched up from close range to put the match 3-1 at the half-time break.
Southern Districts? dominance though continued to shine in the second half and Amoroso was the man that stole all the headlines with a great individual goal which saw him dazzle inside the box which he tucked in for his hat-trick and made it 4-1 in the 73rd minute.
Things got even harder for Redfern as in the 75th minute P. Bayas was given his marching orders from referee Adam Weir for what appeared to be for unsportsmanlike behaviour.
The game was all but sown up as right on ninety minutes as George Georgiou slotted home the simplest of goals as the crown went to the Southern Districts side who were just too good on the day.

All Age Men
Yagoona Lions 3 v North Sydney 6
North Sydney played a near perfect 90? minutes of football to secure the Mens All Age Champion of Champions title for 2010 against Yagoona Lions. The Ku-ring-gai District side managed to master the wet conditions quickest, and ran out comfortable 6-3 winners, with the Lions finishing the match with nine men following the dismissal of two players in the second-half for double cautions.
A timid opening to the match was brought to life in the 8? minute as James Kenney sent in a cross for North Sydney from the right. The whipped in effort picked out Mouheiz Sakouhi, who anticipated the goalkeeper, though failed to direct his header on target.
At the other end, Oliver Veljanovski hit the Lions ahead with a tremendous shot from distance. Veljanovski?s shot packed power and precision, with the ball finishing in the top left-hand corner and leaving North Sydney goalkeeper David Sharp with no chance.
Yagoona nearly doubled their lead via Tom Markovski moments later, though despite the midfielder?s strength and persistence to turn his marker could only send his shot directly at Sharp.
North Sydney found their equaliser in the 15? minute as Benjamin Cook was on hand to divert the ball home. Lions goalkeeper Goran Jovanovski failed to deal with a Daniel Boys corner from the right, leaving Cook with an easy finish to draw the side level.
With the momentum swinging completely in favour of North Sydney, Gary Parker stepped up to drive home Kenney?s low-driven cross from the right into the back of the net for a 2-1 lead.
Cook should have made it 3-1 moments later, though Jovanovski in the Lions goal spread himself well to close the angle and send the ball behind the goal line for a goal kick.
North Sydney did get their third goal before the break courtesy of Daniel Talbot. The striker?s initial shot on goal was well saved by Jovanovski, though the rebound fell into the path of Kenney who was again the provider, setting up Talbot who finished with aplomb.
Yagoona Lions started the second-half on the right foot with Chris Risteski and Vlado Kiparizov creating the chances. The latter forced Sharp into a fine reflex save with a powerful volley, before hitting his second attempt wide of the target moments later following a neat display of skill on the edge of the penalty-area.
Vlado Kiparizov was denied again by the goalkeeper in the 51? minute when his left-footed inswinger from the right-flank was tipped onto the crossbar by the North Sydney shot-stopper.
Despite all the running surrounding Yagoona, North Sydney made a swift counter-attack up field with Sakouhi making it 4-1 at his second attempt.
Tom Markovski, arguably the Lions best player on a difficult afternoon, tried to spur his side on, using his strength and skill to create a yard to drive an effort only inches wide of the mark.
Markovski did get his name on the score sheet in the 63? minute, combining with Steve Nadenovski to reduce the deficit to two.
Yagoona?s afternoon took a bad turn when Veljanovski was shown his second yellow card for a foul on the North Sydney goalkeeper, leaving the Bankstown District side with ten-men.
North Sydney made the most of the numerical advantage in the 73? minute as Sakouhi grabbed his brace following a fine exchange of passes to make it 5-2.
The Lions were reduced to nine-men 10? minutes from time as Bale Giorgioski was also given an early shower for a second yellow card offence, leaving the Lions with an impossible task ahead of them.
Daniel Talbot added a sixth for North Sydney following another fine build between three players. Even with the wet conditions, North Sydney managed to move the ball nicely across the park, and Talbot?s second for the afternoon was real testament to the side?s achievement.
Despite the numerical disadvantage Tom Markovski grabbed a third goal for the Lions, driving a fierce diagonal effort through the goalkeeper?s legs and into the back of the net.
