PS4 NPL Tasmania Round 8 Review

South Hobart scored three times in the final 15 minutes as they produced a stirring comeback to defeat Hobart Zebras 3-2 at Darcy Street.

South rally to stun Zebras

Trailing 2-0 after 76 minutes Zebras looked in complete control before South Hobart rallied late to produce a stunning victory.

It was a cagey opening to the game with few chances early on, with the first meaningful opening falling to Adam Mckeown who got the better of Gorrie before firing his shot straight at the keeper. AlexWalter had the first for South when he played a tidy one-two with Sculthorpe before firing tamely at Mercuri.

City romp to first league victory

Launceston City registered their first league win of the season in the most emphatic of style as they put Clarence to the sword in a 5-0 thumping. City picked up right where they left off in the Lakoseljac Cup and they appear to have turned a corner, as led by fine attacking displays from Williams, Compagne and Kamano they dominated the contest.

The first half hour of the game was a dour affair, bogged down in midfield with neither side able to get much penetration or create chances of note.

Strikers breeze past Lions

The Devonport Strikers comfortably accounted for the Kingborough Lions 3-0 as they stayed within goal difference of the Warriors at the top of the table. In a game they controlled from the opening moments, the Strikers were never seriously troubled as they cruised to another three points.

They were off and running from the early going as Brayden Mann put them ahead inside the opening ten minutes. Millington played a long range diagonal over the top which the Strikers hot shot raced onto and volleyed home at the back post.

Sklenar’s day out fires Warriors past Rangers

The Olympia Warriors consolidated their top of the table position with a comfortable 4-1 win over the fifth-placed Northern Rangers. There was plenty of intrigue around this game following the decision to sack former Kingborough Lions coach Ian Shaw and replace him with Kenny Weston.

Football can be a cruel game and Queenslander Shaw found himself on a plane home whilst still having the Warrior in the Lakoseljac cup and sitting pretty on top of the 2017 PS4 National premier league. It meant the pressure was on Weston to get a debut victory and despite an early set back, his side went on to do just that.
