Tow­ers pow­ers Olympic to up­set

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

OLYMPIC Kingsway de­feated Curtin Univer­sity soc­cer club 2-1 on Fri­day night.

Goals to Oliver Hil­ton and J.P. Mills ei­ther side of Rory Bin­nie’s equaliser were enough to force a ma­jor up­set as eighth-placed Kingsway beat fourth-placed Curtin.

Curtin started poorly and were a goal be­hind after 20 min­utes when they failed to clear their lines and Hil­ton fired into the roof of the net to make it 1-0.

From there the home team started to build and were re­warded when Fraser Grant broke through on goal and earned a penalty as he was brought down by Ben Tow­ers as he went around him.

Tow­ers saved Bin­nie’s ef­fort from the spot but the re­bound fell kindly and Bin­nie was able to tap home.

Curtin almost took the lead min­utes later as Bin­nie put the ball into Ed­die Tikoft’s path but the mid­fielder’s vol­ley went wide.

The teams went into the break at 1-1 and after the break it was all Curtin.

Tow­ers pulled off save after save to keep Olympic Kingsway in the game and against the run of play they took the lead as Mills fired home from 18 yards.

Rory Bin­nie’s equaliser wasn’t enough for Curtin to get the points.
