Under 16’s

Lions FC – 3 (Jeandamour MANIRAMBONA 6’ 76’ Jack STARR 62’)

Olympic FC – 1 (Janao PHILIP 16’)

The under 16’s slipped to a 3-1 defeat the hands of Lions on Sunday afternoon.

Despite falling behind early to a Jeandamour Manirambona goal Olympic hit back minutes later through Janao Philip who opened his account for the season with a 16th minute strike.

Lions took the lead through Jack Starr mid way through the second half before Manirambona grabbed his second of the afternoon to seal a 3-1 victory for the hosts in the 76th minute.

16’s head coach Fernando Cruz said his side must improve defensively.

“There are players making mistakes they shouldn’t be making and unfortunately at the moment it’s a reflection on the whole team and defensively they’ve got to be better and start pulling their weight.”

“Offensively we use the ball very well, don’t get me wrong but we need to start taking our chances, as a coach the buck ends with me so I’ll be making some tougher decisions.”

The 16’s next match is away to league leaders Brisbane City next Wednesday.

Olympic FC – 3 (Manni FINDLAY 55’, Jack SCOTT 57’, Christopher SLATER 65’)

The under 13’s stormed to a comprehensive 3-0 victory over the previously undefeated Lions FC on Sunday morning.

Three second half goals in the space of 10 minutes from Manni Findlay, Jack Scott and Christopher Slater secured a third win on the trot for Olympic.

After a goal-less first half Findlay opened the scoring in the 55th minute with a neat finish after being picked out by Slater.

Two-minutes later Scott doubled the lead when he knocked home the rebound after Lions goalkeeper Makoto Goodwin could only parry Anthony Saridakis’ free kick.

Slater rounded out the 3-0 win in the 65th minute when he finished Saridakis’ cross to cap off a team goal that started deep in Olympic’s own half.

13’s head coach Jae Son said his side were rewarded for their hard work in training.

“There were some good moments today when the team played the type of football we have been working on in training.”

The win lifts Olympic to 5th on the league table ahead of next week’s trip to Brisbane City.
