LIONS DEFEAT HEIDELBERG
Macedonian Australian football club, Preston Lions extended their unbeaten run to nine straight games by defeating rivals Heidelberg (Greek community). In an intense struggle, a Johnny Sapazovski strike on the hour was the difference between the two sides.
With the game coming to a close, a goalmouth scramble in the Preston penalty area resulted in a red card to Michael Miskas and a penalty awarded to Heidelberg in the 88th minute. Miskas was shown the door by referee Perry Mur for a deliberate handball on the goal line. Nick Marinos stepped up for the Bergers but his shot smashed against the crossbar, into the back of keeper Aceski and out for a corner.
Next week the Preston Lions Football Club meet its other and, probably biggest arch rival, South Melbourne (Another Greek based club) in round twelve of the Foxtel Cup (VPL) on Sunday 27th of May at 4.30pm at Bob Jane Stadium. The match is only open to Southern Melbourne fans though.
MD: Wonderfull! On to the 10th victory in a row and let them smash the South melbourne Greeks too!
