After winning the Premiership title, Eagles Sydney (FC Eagles) had in front of them the fourth-placed Murbank team as the last obstacle on the way to the Grand Final of the Southern Districts Premier League.
However, they did not manage to overcome the same rival for the second time in just a week, with the fact that this time the draw was much more painful than the one from the last round of the league, when they already had the title of premier in their pocket.
A week earlier it was 2:2, and now 1:1 after the regular course of the game. After great drama and extra time, where the golden goal was applied (it is still only used in the Southern District to finish the day’s program on time?!), the penalty shootout began.
Because of just one mistake, our team was severely punished and eliminated with a total score of 6:5.
Thus, after a phenomenal season and the league title, there was a regret because the Eagles could certainly have won more than one trophy. Nevertheless, the boys deserve all the praise for the success they achieved.
The Eagles now have to receive recognition from the District in the coming weeks and to strengthen the ranks even more in the coming months before the 2023 season.
In the second semi-final of the first teams of the Premier League, Sydney United Juniors eliminated Condors 2:1, so Juniors and Murbank will fight for the title.
The same result was in the semi-finals of the reserve teams, in both semi-final matches – Kemps Creek beat the Juniors, while Liverpool Olympic won against Murbank with an identical score.
The Premier League finals are scheduled for Sunday, September 11.
Veterans of Belgrade in the final
The veterans of FK Beograd recorded a good success – placing in two finals. Namely, this year the Sydney club is playing in both divisions of the league for players over 35 years of age, in the Southern Districts league.
In the first division, they achieved a feat, defeating Sydney Juniors (red team) 4:2, with goals from Željković (2), Šušek and Tai.
In the second semi-final, the blue team of Juniors also eliminated AC United with 4:2, so in the final, on Saturday at 17.10, the Serbian and Croatian teams will compete. The match is played at Ernie Smith Reserve in Murbank.
In the second division, Belgrade outclassed AC United by as much as 16:1. Everything is clearer when you know that it is about the composition of football masters who have won everything that could be won in the First Division of the veteran league in the last eight years.
In the final, Belgrade will compete with another of our clubs, FK Boniriga, who this season plays with a team that moved from Freeman Sport. The final is also on Saturday (15:00) at Ireland Park in Liverpool.
