Southern United suffer a tough road game loss

By

All tied at half, two second half goals secured Team Wellington a 3-1 win

It was always bound to be a tough game away to reigning OFC champions Team Wellington, as Southern United lost 3-1 to a strong home side at David Farrington Park.

The Jose Figueira-coached team opened the scoring in spectacular style when Mario Ilich hit a long range shot from the halfway line which went over the head of Southern United keeper Liam Little in the 29th minute.

However, Southern United responded well from their slow start to the game, and were close to equalizing immediately as Garbhan Coughlan made an excellent run into the box and had his close range shot saved. On the subsequent rebound, Omar Guardiola's volley went just wide.

Paul O’Reilly’s team, who are looking to improve on their fifth-place finish from last season, bounced back when Abdulla Al-Kalisy scored on the end of a long throw-in 10 minutes later. Southern had had a good run of play and chances up until that point.

The game was evenly poised at 1-1 at halftime, but the hosts found another gear in the second half with goals from Jack-Henry Sinclair and Nathanael Hailemariam putting the result to bed.

Fifteen minutes before fulltime, Markus Fjørtoft received his second yellow of the game and Southern played the remaining game with 10 men.

Next game for Southern United is the broadcasted matchup against Waitakere United away the upcoming Sunday.
