Dream run in Team App Cup comes to an end

Dream run in Team App Cup comes to an end

 

The Zebras womens’ dream run in the quarter final of the Team App Cup ended on Wednesday night with a 2-0 loss to reigning champions Boroondara Eagles.

The Zebras started off well keeping tight and defensive against a highly skilled opposition minimising their chances to long range shots. The team organisation & discipline was excellent holding out against the wind and settling for 0-0 at half time.

 

In the second half the Zebras now believed they were a real chance and began well with several half chances in attack. Shortly after a scramble in our defensive area with keeper Julia Mezzatesta making a parrying save which led to a simple tap in making it 1-0 to Boroondara. Shortly after a questionable penalty was given against the Zebras to make it 2-0. To the Zebras credit they kept pressing and fought until the end. Coach Stephan Achilleos said ‘We go away proud of our effort and how far we have come learning so much and in my book each one of our girls is a champion. Also a massive thank you to everyone that came and supported the team on the night, it was fantastic and provided a great atmosphere’.
