Hills outplays White Eagles – News Online


In the current, as well as in the past few seasons, the Eagles are playing with great result oscillations.

They are able to win the best in the league, such as a couple of weeks ago when they declared the Tigers, and they also often fail against weaker teams in the league.
Unfortunately, the visit to the last placed team, Hills at Blacktown Football Park, last Saturday confirmed another rule.

The very beginning of the match was promising. Already in the 5th minute, Amuri Gojtje shot weakly with his head from five, out of a good opportunity, depriving the Eagles fans of the early celebration.
Shortly afterwards, the same player, with a solo breakthrough, walked through the defense of Hills, but out of the crowd at the end of the action and at the end of his strength, he only managed to send the ball slightly next to Hills’ goal.
This action in a way describes the course of events in the first part, where the focus of the action went through Gojtja, but without a specific ending.

Along with Bonirig’s “ten”, we should also point out the robust striker Aaron Petersin, who once again bounced on the field, because he won almost all the duels in the middle of the field, played and was an enigma for the home players.
However, Petersin’s successful duels were not rewarded, because there was no connection between the Eagles in front of Hills’ goal.

The dominance of our team continued during most of the first half. The hosts sent the first shot towards the Eagles’ goal only in the 35th minute.
Like a thunderbolt from the clear sky, it hit the Eagles’ camp, when Zack Sfiglio knocked down the Hills player in the penalty area, after which a penalty was awarded. Bonirig’s goalkeeper, Michael Figueira, defended the shot from the penalty spot, but the blocked ball fell in front of Jordan Parfeta, who easily pushed it into the net for 1: 0.

At the beginning of the second part of the game, Amuri Gojtje sent a strong half-volley shot from the edge of the penalty area, but the ball went over the goal. In the 52nd minute, Bonirig was lucky when the ball bounced past the post of our goalkeeper Figueira.

After ten minutes of continuation, Maksim Jež replaced Sean Yves. In the 60th minute, the most probable chance in the game was seen. Gojtje went one-on-one with the opposing goalkeeper, Ricardo Rick, but the shot was too weak.
Petersin’s headbutt soon followed, but he was not up to the task either.
Bonirig’s more open game provided more space for the home players. Thus, from one counterattack, a breakthrough on the right side and a shot by Glen Kelso followed, and Jordan Parfete scored his second goal of the game from close range.
In the following minutes, Radovan Pavićević entered the game, replacing Petersen, and ten minutes before the end, the young Andrija Mandić entered instead of the returnee to the team, Brady Smith. In the 87th minute, after a corner kick, Joshua Karanz was the most agile, so he knocked his head for 2: 1 and gave hope to Bonirig.

However, there was nothing from the equalizer in the last eight minutes, as much as the referee’s decision. The end of the match will be remembered for the exclusion of Andrija Mandić, who, in a great desire to change something with an unsupervised start, fouled the Hills player and earned a direct red card.
In the next 16th round, the Eagles will host the Spirit team at home and try to return to the path of victory, hoping to at least mathematically stay in the game and take one of the first four places, which would provide them with promotion to the Premier League.

Football in the foreground

After a marathon victory through penalties of 11-10, last week over Hakum, the White Eagles advanced to the semifinals of the Varata Cup for 2022, where their opponent will be the old rival, the Croatian team Sydney United. In the second semifinal, NWS Spirit will meet Vulongong United.

Marconi is the last champion of the Varata Cup in 2019, because the cup was not played in 2020 and 2021 due to the Kovid pandemic. With Marko Jesic’s goals, Marconi celebrated against Bonirig’s rival, Sydney United, three years ago in the last final.
By the decision of the draw, the White Eagles will host this historic match with United. Details of the upcoming first meeting between the Serbian and Croatian teams will be announced later.
Namely, having in mind the turbulent history of this duel, it is not in anyone’s interest for the match to bring unwanted consequences, but for football to be in the foreground.
