SENIOR CUP REVIEW - APRIL 18th


MEN'S FFA CUP vs. Goulburn Valley Suns 

A calm night greeted Goulburn Valley Suns as they made the trip to Comets Stadium on Thursday evening. It wasn’t long into the game before the NPL2 side took the lead. Midway through the half, against the run of play GV Suns were awarded a penalty and finished it tidily. The second half started with a bang after just a minute and a half when Dejan Radojicic scored for the home side, and 5 minutes later he was in again for a double to bring the scores level. The Comets were done yet, and in the 56th minute Deaken Napier tucked one away for the home side to take the lead. For the remainder of the second half the game became more open and the Comets let a little control slip, however remained resolute thanks to some fine saves from goal keeper, Michael Sivulja. In the 2nd minute of added time, GV Suns made the most of the numerous set piece opportunities they had in the second half and buried a free header to take the game to Extra Time. Throughout Extra Time, GV Suns looked more threatening but could not convert their chances as the Comets defense held strong backed up by Sivulja in net. Into penalties it went and after the Suns took an early lead, a big miss and a great save by Sivulja gave the Comets the chance for victory, which Brendan Richardson dispatched into the roof of the net as the and the celebrations began.

It was a great night for the team, club and fans who stayed through the whole match. History was made for the club as this is the furthest we have progressed in the FFA Cup. We await the draw for the next round.

SENIOR WEEKEND REVIEW - APRIL 13/14th

State League 1 Men’s Vs. Eltham Redbacks FC

 

It was a tight contest between the two sides with not much between the two teams. Opportunities were few and far between for both in the first half, entering half time at 0-0. As the second half went on, the game opened up a little bit. A whipped in cross by Eltham took a tough deflection off Casey’s Darcy Pawlik for the decisive goal. Casey went in search of a late equalizer forcing a couple fantastic saves from the Eltham keeper. The game finished 1-0.

The loss leaves Casey sitting 5th with two wins and two losses after four rounds.
