Player Watch | International Duty


We have a number of players on international duty this week as well as those in state league.

The weekly segment which takes you through what our players are doing during the Hyundai A-League, Westfield W-League and Foxtel National Youth League off-season.

The South Coast Wolves had their first win of the season with James Baldacchino starring in a 6-1 romp over Manly United. Baldacchino-s fine performance was matched by his teammates with their efforts reflected on the scoreboard.

Sean Symons continued his brilliant season individually scoring in the opening three minutes for Rockdale City Suns. Unfortunately for Symons the Suns- keeper got sent off two minutes later with Blacktown City running out 4-2 winners. Shayne D-Cunha came off the bench for Blacktown City.

Mark Cindric was the star for Sydney United 58 as they fell to Marconi Stallions 3-2. Cindric set-up one goal and was involved in the other as he did very well to hold the ball up; creating multiple chances for his side. Recently crowned NYL Player of the Year Jake McGing was on the pitch for the victorious Stallions.

It was a return from injury for Brendan Hooper as he played 90 minutes for Sydney Olympic. It was a solid performance by the defender in an evenly-contested game but Sutherland were the victors in a 3-2 win.

Matthew Stewart had a busy weekend for Blacktown City with a 3-2 win over Rockdale City Suns in the U18s before joining up with Blake Tuxford in the U20s for a 0-0 draw again against Rockdale City.

The North West Sydney Koalas defeated Marconi Stallions 2-0 with Jessica Seaman lining-up at centre back and Servet Uzunlar in midfield. Helen Petinos played 90 minutes for the Stallions.

Jordan Baker, Michelle Carney and Caitlin Cooper had a game to forget as Illawarra Stingrays lost 5-1 to table-toppers Macarthur Rams while Rachael Soutar played the full 90 minutes in Sydney Uni-s 2-1 loss to Manly United.

Jenna Kingsley scored in only her second game back from injury for the Blacktown Spartans as they defeated FNSW Institute NSW 2-0 while also defeating Northbridge 2-1 on Sunday.

Emily van Egmond, Alanna Kennedy and Teigen Allen have all travelled to Vietnam for the Asian Cup as the Matildas as they attempt retain the trophy they won in 2011 and qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
