MWFA Premier League Men’s Round 11 Review

MPL StAg v Mosman 10Aug2019-8629 www

There was movement on top of the table and late drama aplenty in an action-packed round 11 of the MWFA Premier League men’s competition.

At Narrabeen Sports High, Mosman struck twice in the final ten minutes to deny Narrabeen in a dramatic 2-2 draw.

The hosts opened the scoring early through a deflected Daniel Flew effort and doubled their lead as their skipper Andy Higginson tucked home a cross.

However Mosman continued to fight to the end and pulled one back on the 80th minute.

A stunning strike from their skipper Jordan Perkins crashed off the woodwork and eventually found the back of the net.

Mattias Zervas then stood up in the dying embers of the contest to finish off the equaliser and salvage the Whales a point.

For Narrabeen captain Higginson, the stalemate felt more like a defeat.

“Both teams played with a lot of energy but it wasn’t a very clean game,” he said.

“Being 2-0 up with ten minutes to go we should not be letting that happen.

“We had another couple of chances to score but on the day if you don’t take your chances that’s what happens.

“I guess with a young squad under a bit of pressure in the last 10 minutes we crumbled. We were looking for a bit of leadership and someone to stand up but today no one did.”

In other results, Pittwater suffered their second defeat of the campaign as an 85th minute winner from Aaron Peters saw Saints emerge 1-0 victors at Grahams.

The result allowed Brookvale to leapfrog Pitts into top spot after a late effort of their own saw them scrape past Curl Curl 1-0 over at Abbott Road.

In other results, Wakehurst overcame Harbord 3-1, Strikers defeated Seaforth 2-1 and Belrose-Terry Hills enjoyed a 4-1 victory over Manly Vale.

The final four rounds of the competition are sure to be toughly fought out with only two points separating third and eighth position.
