PS4 NPL NSW Round 6 Review

Hakoah Sydney City East has staged the upset of the PlayStation®4 NPL NSW season so far as Round 6 action kicked up a swag of big results.

Blacktown City’s five game winning run to open the season has finally come to an end as bottom of the table Hakoah proved too good at home against a misfiring Seven Hills outfit.

Parramatta found itself in the win column with a strong showing against Sydney Olympic while a last gasp goal clinched a point for APIA against Rockdale City Suns.

A dominant 3-0 win from Sydney United 58 against Blacktown Spartans catapulted Mark Rudan’s side into top spot on the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s ladder for the first time this season as Blacktown City drop to second.


Match of the Round

Hakoah Sydney City East 3 - Blacktown City FC 1 at Hensley Athletic Field.

Fairy tales do come true and it is exactly what happened on Saturday night for Hakoah Sydney City East as they claimed a shock 3-1 win against Blacktown City FC during the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s clash at Hensley Athletic Field.

David overcame Goliath as the bottom of the table Hakoah put on a well-rounded performance against the previously unbeaten and top of the table Blacktown.

An early screamer to Hussein Akil as well as second half goals to Neil Jablonski and Jordan Mundell helped Sydney City East to only its second win of the season.

Blacktown’s usually free scoring forward line was missing its shooting boots as missed opportunities came back to cost Mark Crittenden’s side dearly

Blacktown Spartans 0 - Sydney United 58 3 at Blacktown Football Park

Sydney United’s incredible run continues as Mark Rudan’s side nabbed top spot on the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s ladder with a dominant 3-0 drubbing of Blacktown Spartans

A barrage of second half goals from Panni Nikas, Chris Payne and new recruit Thomas Uskok were the difference as United 58 cruised to victory.

Nikas made the breakthrough shortly after half-time with his third goal in two weeks before Payne added a killer second on the break.

Uskok added a third late on after bundling home from a corner to round off a dominant evening for the visitors.

The Spartans rallied for large periods of the second half and were unlucky not to have pulled a goal back on several occasions with Sydney United 58 custodian Thomas Manos, aided in small part by the woodwork, enjoying another fine evening between the sticks.
