Two quality goals, including a 30-yard wonder strike, were just some of Choi’s highlights while super-sub Patrick Antelmi also found the net with a strong solo effort.
While the scoreline suggests ferocious attack from Blacktown, it was their dogged defence which won the match for the team that calls Lilly’s Football Stadium home.

It was a courageous performance from Mark Crittenden’s team and one the Blacktown faithful won’t forget anytime soon.
