Unstoppable Hamilton Olympic beat Broadmeadow Magic 2-0

IMG_6780 (2)

Hamilton Olympic cemented their 1st place on the NPL ladder on Sunday afternoon at Darling Street oval with an emphatic 2-0 victory over Broadmeadow Magic.

In perfect weather conditions and before a huge crowd at Darling St Oval, Olympic began the onslaught in the 2’ with a flick on by Kane Goodchild which found unmarked Andrew Swan, who shot wide of the mark.

By the 12’ sustained pressure by the home side resulted in a free kick just outside the Magic area. Simon Mooney lined up his shot, and while the Magic defence was napping, he opened the account for Olympic 1-0.

In the 24’ the same player from another free kick saw his shot curl just above the crossbar.

The rest of the half continued with Olympic comfortably controlling the midfield and Magic unable to create any clear cut chances for an equaliser.

The second half began with Magic trying to get around the Olympic defence from the flanks but despite numerous crosses, Danny Ireland’s goal was un-penetrable.

As Magic chased the game for the equaliser, Olympic looked very dangerous on the break. During one of these counter attacks, a cross from the left found Andrew Swan inside the area, who did not hesitate in sending the ball at the back of the net and the Olympic supporters in the seventh heaven!

Magic continued to attack with Kale Bradbury firing into the arms of Danny Ireland and Josh Cox forcing the Olympic goalie to curl it over for a corner.

Olympic continued to counter attack with the best opportunity falling to Andrew Swan, seconds before the final whistle, who blasted over the top!

Despite the pressure from Magic, Olympic were able to hold on the 2-0 score line until the final whistle.

Next round Hamilton Olympic host Adamstown Rosebuds at Darling Street Oval at 2.30.
