Round Seven of the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s 2016 season saw some surprising results.

There were some big upsets and incredible goals but Round Seven went a bit like this:

Sutherland Sharks FC 1

Hakoah Sydney City East FC 3

Seymour Shaw

Hakoah has kicked into gear with back to back wins to show they’re real competition in the league. Three goals in the second half sealed the win for Hakoah who now move up to seventh spot while Sutherland sit in ninth.

 

Sydney Olympic FC 0

Bonnyrigg White Eagles FC 0

Belmore Sports Ground

Sydney Olympic shared points with Bonnyrigg in a scoreless draw leaving Bonnyrigg in fifth and Olympic in 11th spot on the ladder. Both teams struggled to capitalise on their many opportunities with an inability to finish being key to the deadlock.

 

Manly United FC 1

Rockdale City Suns FC 1

Cromer Park

Manly couldn’t make it work, sharing points with Rockdale despite looking convincing in attack. Rockdale took the lead early but a 45th minute equaliser saved Manly from defeat. Rockdale sit in third while Manly trail closely behind in fourth on the ladder.

 

Blacktown City FC 3

Wollongong Wolves FC 0

Lilys Football Centre

Blacktown City have proved yet again that they’re serious contenders this season with a convincing win over Wollongong to add to their campaign. With only one loss to their name they sit in second spot, fighting for first with Sydney United. Wollongong put up a good fight but weren’t enough to beat the strength of Blacktown.

 

Sydney United 58 FC 5

Parramatta FC 1

Sydney United Sports Centre

Sydney United are making themselves comfortable at the top of the table with a 5-1 win over Parramatta FC keeping them in first place and adding to their impressive goal difference. Three penalties played in United’s favour and kept Parramatta well out of the race as they sit in eighth spot.

 

APIA Leichhardt Tigers 5

Blacktown Spartans 3

Lambert Park

An early goal couldn’t seal the deal for Spartans as they went from a goal within the first minute to 4-1 down at the half. Blacktown looked dangerous in the second half but it wasn’t enough to make a comeback with APIA proving too much.
