South Coast Taipans remain unbeaten after two matches whilst Sutherland began their campaign with a bang.
Taipans came to Ryde Community Indoor Sports Centre hoping to build upon their Round 1 draw with Kingz Rangers and came away with an emphatic 6-0 victory over Phoenix FC. One goal each to Nathan Whalen and Patrick Mitchell complemented an incredible four goal haul to Z. Jones.
Sutherland were welcomed to Kevin Betts Stadium for their first game of the competition against Kingz Rangers where they made a sizzling start to their season, scoring 9 goals to Rangers 2. Brad was top scorer for Sutherland with 4 goals to his name and Casey, Craig and Raquel each bagging a brace. Jason grabbed one goal to finish off the scoring for Sutherland, whilst Simon Grounds and Cameron put away one each for Rangers.
Game Development Officer David Plowright has been extremely impressed with the quality of play on show from the first two rounds of the competition.
“Players and coaches from both Premier League and State League teams have given plaudits for the excellent standard in which the AWD games have been played. The high number of goals been scored has certainly made the AWD matches one of the highlights of the match days this season.”
