Cock­burn lucky to draw with Subi

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

COCK­BURN City was not good enough to stop a win­less Su­bi­aco from snatch­ing its first point of the sea­son over the week­end.

Cock­burn was star­ing down the bar­rel of its sixth loss of the sea­son af­ter Su­bi­aco opened the scor­ing with a penalty in the 9th minute.

It was only an An­gel An­dres spe­cial that saw the home team avoid de­feat, in­stead fin­ish­ing out the game with a 1-1 draw.

Cock­burn coach Scott Mil­lar said he was not happy with what he saw on the pitch.

“It was a hor­ri­ble game to be hon­est, we were not at the races to­day,” he said.

“We had the worst thing hap­pen to us when we gave them an early goal and then they just sat back and de­fended.

“I think we were good un­til we got into the fi­nal area, but they de­fended with 10 play­ers so we had to de­liver a good ball. But un­for­tu­nately our cross­ing, fi­nal pass and fin­ish­ing wasn’t where we wanted it to be but at least we got away with­out a loss.”
