REVIEW: NNSW NPL Round 16


EDGEWORTH F.C 2 def. South Cardiff 0

Edgeworth hosted South Cardiff on Friday night and two late goals to Bren Hammel and Dylan Holz were enough to give the high-flying Eagles a crucial victory as they look to seal the NPL minor premiership. The two-nil loss sees South Cardiff needing at least a win from their last two games, maybe even more considering their horrific goal differential.

Edgeworth will host A-League side Melbourne City on Tuesday night on what is arguably the biggest night in the club's history and to go into it with a win is the best preparation. In the 22's, Edgeworth claimed the minor premiership with a tight 2-1 win and the 19's match ended 1-1. Both lower grade matches were played on Sunday.

*Venue: Adamstown Oval (not Jack McLaughlan Oval!)

Adamstown Rosebud 0 def by. LAMBTON JAFFAS 6

Now not being at games always affects my ability to judge what happened but I saw the highlights of this one on NBN News and the word embarrassing doesn't sum it up for a woeful Adamstown side. They gave away a couple of goals and were just horrendous on a day that saw their season hit a low-point.

Credit to Lambton who were supreme. The match was on edge until Riley McNaughton's opener in the 39th minute. Jobe Wheelhouse added a second just moments later and the Jaffas took a 2-0 lead into the break. The second half was similar as the Buds held out Lambton for a good 15 minutes or so.

Routine goalscorer John Majorovski added a couple and Alex Palozzi put the icing on the cake late on. A perfect day at the office for the Lambton Jaffas and a day to forget for the Buds. Adamstown got something out of the day though with a 3-1 win in the 22's and a 2-1 win in the 19's.

HAMILTON OLYMPIC 5 def. Weston Workers 1

It's never good to be harsh but only one team showed up today at Darling St. Weston were on the back foot from the get go as an early Pat Brown goal put the home side ahead. Mat Swan added a second not long after and then Kane Goodchild put his name on the scoresheet. It was 3-0 after the first half hour.

The second half started better for Weston but a quick fire Pat Brown double gave the upcoming striker a hat-trick and gave Hamilton a 5-0 lead. Weston got one back through Gary McDermott but it wouldn't blemish what was a horror day for the Weston Bears. Broadmeadow are coming to Rockwell Automation Park next week for what could be a do or die game for both sides.

Hamilton will look to keep pressure on Edgeworth at the top of the table as they seek the minor premiership. In the 22's and 19's, Hamilton were supreme with a 4-1 and 2-1 win respectively.

Charlestown City 1 drew. Maitland F.C 1

This wasn't the result either side wanted as they look to move well ahead of bottom-placed South Cardiff but it was a Joel Wood goal in the 86th minute that rescued a point for the visiting Magpies and put them three points ahead of the Gunners in the race to avoid relegation. Charlestown have a game in hand against the Jets Youth and will probably consider themselves a good chance of safety.

In the 22's, neither side could find the net in a 0-0 draw whilst the Under 19's finished 2-1.

BROADMEADOW MAGIC 5 def. Newcastle Jets Youth 2

I haven't been messaged goalscorers yet for this one but it was a much, much-needed win for Broadmeadow Magic as they look to sneak into the playoffs with some late season form. The Jets Youth scored twice but were still outclassed at the end of the day by a desperate Magic outfit.

The Under 18 Emerging Jets were classy in their 3-0 win over Magic's 22's whilst the home side got the better of the visitors in the Under 19's and moved into top spot on the table in the process.
