CURTIN Univer­sity Football Club de­feated El­len­brook United 1-0 on Satur­day with Ed­die Tikoft get­ting the only goal of the match for the home side.

Tikoft was well sup­ported by the re­turn­ing Antony Russo, the tire­less Khaled Sal­hah and makeshift cen­tre back Jon Krawec.

In an ex­cit­ing first half it was all Curtin as Rory Bin­nie caused trou­ble for the visi­tors along with Russo who was in­flu­en­tial in the mid­dle of the park.

Curtin hit the front when Dilip Thapa sent a long throw into the box. El­len­brook failed to clear their lines and Tikoft was able to head home to give his side a de­served lead.

Both Bin­nie and Thapa had chances to ex­tend the lead but were un­able to fin­ish and the teams went into the break with only one goal scored.

Curtin again had the lion’s share of pos­ses­sion in the sec­ond half but strug­gled to hit the tar­get at times with Bin­nie head­ing wide early on and Tikoft also putting his header wide late in the half.

On Satur­day Curtin travel to take on fourth-placed Fre­man­tle City.
