Late, late, late show from Monash

Posted: 01-Jun-2011 by Maccabi NSW

Northside Monash won a heart stopper on Saturday, thanks to a last minute Dylan Tooch goal 5 minutes into injury time.

After going up 1-0 in the first half thanks to Captain Josh Frank's first goal in almost two years, the Sky Blues lost their way after halftime and soon found themselves on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline, conceding two soft goals from a corner and a throw in.

Frank gave his side a lifeline by curling a left footed shot into the top corner with 20 minutes to go for his second goal, and then Monash pulled off their great escape when Tooch ran onto a through ball and chipped the ball over the keeper and into the back of the net to give Monash the win. Monash now sit in 6th position on 11 points with just 2 points separating the top 6.

The Reserves had a more comfortable victory, although they also left it a bit too late for the coach's liking. Goals from Shaun Lurie, Cam Will and David Leiboff lead to a 4-2 victory for Monash. While coach Steve Edelmuth was happy with both results, he is hoping to suffer less heart failure next week.

In the girl’s competition, the Under 14 and Under 16 teams played at their new home ground of College Crescent in front of a very vocal crowd. In a top of the table clash, the Under 16’s came from 2 goals down to draw with competition leaders Wahroonga 2-2 thanks to a brace from Beth Israelson who took her goal tally for the season to 7.

The under 14’s lost 1-0 to Lindfield in a nail biter. The girls, playing up an age group with many still eligible for the under 12 level, punched above their weight in a see-sawing affair. Monash produced a number of goal scoring opportunities but were unable to convert, before Lindfield drew on their superior physical strength to squeeze one in midway through the second half. After losing their last two games 6-0 and 9-0 it was a tremendous effort from the girls.
