Cock­burn back in form

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

COCK­BURN City’s 1-1 draw against lad­der-lead­ers Floreat Athena sig­nals a re­turn to form af­ter a mid-sea­son slump that saw them strug­gle to match their op­po­nents on the field.

It could have been a win for Cock­burn, but they squan­dered a chance in the first 10 min­utes af­ter Gian Al­bano hit the post with his shot, and Reuben Tris­tao missed an iden­ti­cal chance shortly af­ter.

Floreat scored via a de­flec­tion from a free kick at the 37th minute mark, but Cock­burn equalised nine min­utes into the sec­ond half through Al­bano af­ter he was brought down in the box and awarded a penalty.

Cock­burn coach Scott Miller said he was pleased with the per­for­mance, but dis­ap­pointed they couldn’t se­cure the win.

“We were fan­tas­tic, the work rate was great and the team em­braced the chal­lenge against the best team in the league,” he said.

Cock­burn will play Ar­madale at Dal­matinac Park from 3pm on June 24.
