Hakoah FC v Mounties Wanderers FC; Sunday 9th May; 3pm @ Hensley Athletic Field
Finally, Hakoah FC will return to home comforts welcoming Mounties Wanderers, Sunday afternoon.
Hakoah FC will be hoping that last weekend is a minor blip in the season ahead. Against Western Sydney Wanderers, they started off in positive fashion opening the score through Luiz Lobo before seeing their lead slip away against a strong Western Sydney outfit. They did eventually find an equalizer through Marco Arambasic who scored his first of the season but went on to concede afterwards. These two have only met once in recent history, Hakoah FC prevailing in a 2018 cup match.
This isn’t the Mounties Wanderers you’re looking for *waves hand. Sorry I had to get a Star Wars reference somewhere. Anyway, the Mounties had a new look about them in round nine. With no less than five new starters and others on the bench. They went down to SD Raiders at Wanderers Football Park. But if it weren’t for some Mario Aleksik heroics in the Raiders net, they would’ve had their first point since round one. As the new arrivals start to settle in, we can expect this Mounties Wanderers outfit to improve as the season goes on.
