Melbourne City FC move to the top of the Foxtel National Youth League ladder after defeating the Brisbane Roar 0-3 on Sunday afternoon.Young Roar’s unbeaten start to the Foxtel National Youth League season has ended, losing 3-0 to Melbourne City at Goodwin Park today.
After a fairly even start to the contest, Andy Kecojevic opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time before Stefan Mauk and Andrew Mullett added goals in the second half.
Benjamin Garuccio had the first clear chance of the match, shooting just high from a free kick on the edge of the area, before Devante Clut tested Tando Velaphi in the City goal with a shot from range on the 15 minute mark.
The Melbourne club broke the deadlock a minute before the break, Kecojevic netting the rebound after goalkeeper Matt Acton pulled off a makeshift save with his shin.
Early in the second half, Young Roar’s Shelford Dais had a promising shot blocked before he teed up Clut for another effort on goal – the City defence keeping tight to deny the home side any sniff at goal.
Acton was busy at the other end of the pitch, pulling off a great save to deny Matthew Millar before goals from Mauk in the 67th and Mullett in 74th minutes secured the three points for the away side.
Melbourne City FC's next Foxtel National Youth League match is against Melbourne Victory Youth on Saturday 15 November at Lakeside Stadium.
