Saturday at Hawker Oval.

Canberra knocked by Tigers' roar
COOMA Tigers twice fought back
from being a goal behind to inflict a
second league defeat in succession on
the previously invincible Canberra FC
with a 3-2 victory at Nijong Oval in
Round 14 of the Capital Football
The home team was forced to
showcase its powers of recovery after
falling behind to a stunning 17th-
minute opener to Josip Jadric. The
winger struck a powerful shot that flew
into the Cooma net leaving the home
goalkeeper helpless -- that proved to be
the only goal of the first half. Any
thoughts that the visitors might be back
to winning ways after their home loss
to Canberra Olympic seven days prior
were brought crashing back to earth
when Iain Elliott fired a rasping drive
into the net to level the match at 1-1
13 minutes into the second half.
The champions regained the initiat-
ive barely six minutes later though,
when Ian Graham was on hand to
notch his sixth league goal of the
season and seemingly restored nor-
mality. However, the Tigers roared
again and Serdan Bircan bravely
hurtled into a 50-50 with Ben Klug in
the Canberra FC goal, getting to the
ball first to make the score 2-2 in the
72nd minute. Two minutes later the
home team was in front. Elliott swung
over a cross and Alex Castro, once of
Canberra FC, connected to power a
diving header into the net and secure a
The defeat allowed Canberra FC's
nearest title rival Canberra Olympic to
move five points clear at the top of the
table after it proved too strong for
Monaro Panthers in a one-sided con-
test at O'Connor Enclosed, winning
4-0. After an unfortunate own goal
gave Olympic the lead early on, when
James McLachlan got the unlucky
final touch to a defensive melee, the
home team was always in control of
the outcome. After the break Mohsen
Ravanparsa, in the 66th minute, and
Robbie Shroder, seven minutes later,
scored their eighth goals of the season
to secure the win. Milan Popovich then
troubled the scorers for the first time
this season to round off the scoring
nine minutes from the final whistle.
Belconnen United got back to
winning ways on Sunday afternoon as
it disposed of Tuggeranong United 4-0
at McKellar Park. Dustin Wells proved
once again to be the king of the dead-
ball, netting a hat-trick of set-piece
efforts including a brace of penalties in
the first half. Danny Macor had the
Blue Devils in front in the 21st minute
with his seventh goal of the season
before Tuggeranong goalkeeper Alex
Connell was adjudged to have fouled a
Belconnen attacker in the penalty area.
Wells made no mistake from the spot-
kick and repeated the feat in the 34th
minute after a penalty was again
awarded, this time for handball. In the
second half, Tuggeranong was given a
penalty of its own but skipper Tim
Ireson saw his shot saved by Rowan
Sheppard. Wells added the coup de
grace for the home team two minutes
from time with a belting free-kick from
distance to register a treble and his
24th goal of the season.
At Hawker Football Centre on
Saturday evening Canberra City and
Woden Valley played out a goalless
draw with chances few and far
between. Alex Oloriegbe missed the
best opportunities for the visiting side,
firstly firing wide when one-on-one
early on and secondly following a Ben
Pagett cross. Nikola Taneski tested the
reflexes of Woden shot-stopper Jack
Pettit, who also did well to save a well-
struck free-kick from Misko
Naumoski. City looked for all the
world as if it had won the match when
a shot was goal bound with Pettit
beaten, however, Hector Alamos saved
the day with a magnificent stooping
clearance off the goal line.
