The Greek Community Cup Off to a Great Start

The Inaugural Greek Community Cup got off to a great start today at the Partridge Street Reserve in Lalor as the first games of the tournament were held in a competitive atmosphere.

In perfect conditions following yesterday’s heatwave, the tournament kicked off with Group Two competitors Heidelberg United FC and West Preston SC facing off. The entertaining game ebbed and flowed and ultimately ended in a 1-1 draw. Jonathon Tsangas opened the scoring for the Cup for West Preston and Tadiwanashe Hove equalised for the Bergers.

The second match kicked off at 3pm and featured the home club Mill Park SC facing their Group 3 rivals Oakleigh Cannons.

In what was an entertaining and competitive game, Mill Park came out on top in a 2-1 victory.

Matthew Oghanna opened the scoring for Mill Park in the 12th minute only to have Oakleigh’s Roy Gregory equalise in the 26th minute.

Mill Park however thrived on their home ground and got back out in front 6 minutes later when Dean Joncevski scored and managed to hold of Oakleigh to claim the points.

The Cup continues this week on Tuesday 17 January at 7PM when Altona East face East Kew and Heidelberg look to claim their first win against tournament debutants Malvern City.
