Olympic’s cup run continues this Saturday night at Goodwin Park against Brisbane Premier League club Centenary Stormers.
Olympic ran out 7-1 winners in their FFA Cup opener against St. George Willawong in early April and come into Saturday’s Round 5 clash off the back of a 5-0 win over Sunshine Coast Fire.
The Stormers currently occupy fifth position on the Brisbane Premier League ladder having lost 2-1 to Brisbane Knights in their last outing.
The Stormers notched up wins against Oxley United and Holland Park to reach this stage of the competition.
What was said – Olympic FC Kristen Waters centre back
“I haven’t played these guys but we know what they’re about and, if we stick to our processes, we believe that will get us the win,” he said.
“At the back we’ve got to keep it clean and stay organised. We’re feeling strong as a group, but we’ve got to capitalise on the opportunities that we get.”
“The season’s been really good. Playing under Ben Cahn is great and really refreshing. The boys who have joined the team have been real assets.”
“Everyone’s contributing and bringing their own flavour. It’s competitive and it’s a great environment to be in.”
-Olympic have previously faced Centenary Stormers once in the FFA Cup preliminary rounds back in 2014. Olympic ran out 6-0 winners that day with Danny Byrne, Matt Mundy & James Cuminao all playing in the game.
-Centenary Stormers have never made it past the fifth round of the FFA Cup qualifying.
-Adam Edgar’s hat trick against St. George Willawong leaves him as the equal highest goal scorer from teams that are still alive in the FQ Metro Zone FFA Cup qualifying path.
