FYL: Wanderers continue undefeated run in Canberra

FYL: Wanderers continue undefeated run in Canberra

The Western Sydney Wanderers have continued their undefeated run in the Foxtel Y-League after defeating Canberra United 6-3 on Saturday afternoon. 

A double by both Abraham Majok and Kosta Grozos as well as goals from Lachlan Scott and Marc Tokich cemented a win for an in-form Red & Black outfit. 

The Wanderers took the lead within the first fifteen minutes after Majok slotted home a loose ball in the box. 

This followed with a powerful strike by Tokich who was unlucky to see his shot smash into the crossbar. 

The Red & Black continued piling the pressure onto Canberra and Scott doubled the Wanderers’ lead after a clever play from Majok saw him finish past the keeper. 

There was no stopping the Wanderers now with Tokich’s persistence in the match finally paying off for a goal of his own. 

Canberra’s keeper Finn Jurak did well to stop an initial shot by Grozos but he was unable to save an incredible chip from Tokich. 

The Wanderers smashed in their fourth goal before the end of the first half.

Grozos expertly split Canberra’s defence and slotted his shot into the bottom corner of the goal. 

Daniel Axford was finally called into action in the opening minutes of the second half and denied a strike by Josh Gulevski.

Canberra’s Mikey Katsoulis was brought down in the box and the home side was handed a spot-kick that Roko Strika converted.  

Mate Barisic then cut the goal deficit down to two goals for United after an incredible strike that evaded Axford. 

Yet, it wasn’t over for the Wanderers with Majok scoring his second goal of the match finishing a pinpoint cross from close range. 

Grozos also grabbed his second, dancing through Canberra’s defence sending Jurak the opposite way. 

United’s substitute Ben Obst scored the final goal of the match in the 91st minute after racing onto a through ball. 

The score settled at 6-3 in the AIS Sport Fields with the Wanderers cementing their place at the top of the Foxtel Y-League Conference B table. 

The Red & Black will next play on Saturday 6 January against Central Coast Mariners at Popondetta Park.
