Final Score : Green Gully SC 2 : 1 Avondale FC
Match Report by Assistant Coach Stevie Laurie
On a miserable day weather wise our best performance of the season came to fruition; a total professional performance was going to be needed and that's what the group produced.
We, as a unit, spoke about going that extra yard mentally and physically to beat a team that has only been beaten once this season. Even when they took the lead early, I knew we were going to come out on top at the end of the game.
Pure passion and togetherness got us back in the game through a nice Andy Brennan finish. We didn't take the foot off the gas all the way till the end and we got our reward late in the game. We created numerous chances in the second half and I definitely know we deserved the 3 points.
Our group is full of belief ATM as we have beaten the team that sit third and we were one minute away from beating Bentleigh who sit 2nd and this week we won against the team that sits top. If anything, our group has trained harder than ever over the past few weeks and we are more focused than ever. The group are certainly closer than ever and I feel it was there for all to see on the weekend.
The gaffer is consistently getting 100% effort every week, and, as staff, we are certainly doing our homework every week, combine that with the effort on game day, we have the talent and togetherness to beat anyone on our day. It's an exciting time around the club and I'm proud to be a part of the journey with our group of honest young athletes.
