Canberra Olympic claimed a second consecutive Playstation 4 NPL Capital Football Grand Final win with a 3-0 victory over Canberra FC on Sunday.
Goals from Daniel Colbertaldo and Robbie Cattanach, as well as an own goal, proved more than enough for Olympic on a perfect afternoon at Deakin Stadium in front of 2,782 people.
Canberra FC came out of the blocks well as they looked to make home advantage count, but neither side could forge a clear-cut chance at goal in the opening stanza. Izach Clements did brilliantly to block a Cattanach shot after he stole the ball from Michael Mensah as Canberra FC defended their line brilliantly.
Tempers flared throughout a physical first half as Nathan Megic was the first to be booked after just 19 minutes. A scuffle in the middle of the park demonstrated the passion on display five minutes before the break as a number of players came together.
Thomas James had a good chance for Canberra FC around the half-hour mark of the match but his rasping drive curled over the crossbar of Jack Petit’s goal.
Ian Graham had the first chance of the second half as both sides looked for the goal that would break open the game. However his volley went narrowly wide after a great setup with Canberra FC looking dangerous out of the sheds.
It was Olympic’s turn to attack minutes later as Philippe Bernabo-Madrid was sent through on goal, however a fantastic tackle denied him from behind before he could shoot.
