The Marconi Stallions have secured a point, away to the high-flying Sutherland Sharks at Seymour Shaw Park on Saturday night.

In front of another big and vocal home crowd, the match came to life in the final 25’ minutes, although in the end, the defence from both sides proved too good.  

The opening stages of the match provided some promising signs for the Stallions who found themselves with a good share of possession.

Jason Trifiro unleashed a long-range snap-shot inside of the 1’ minute, who was nearly in on goals a few minutes later, but for a timely intervention by Sharks' keeper Phillip Zabaks.

Sutherland’s first goal scoring attempt fell to Nick Stavroulakis, who picked up a poorly cleared free-kick by the Stallions defence, though the hardworking midfielder’s shot-turn-pass amounted to nothing.

The half played out to be a scrappy affair, with many poor first touches – from both sides – summing up the first 45’ minutes.

Sutherland took control in the closing stages of the first period with one of the better chances falling to the Sharks top-scorer, Brad Boardman.

The tall striker latched onto an exquisite through ball from Ben Spruce – sending the striker one-on-one with James Chronopoulos – though the Stallions’ defence was very quick to react and thwart Boardman’s chance.

The second forty-five minutes continued with the same speed that the first period ended, and again the Stallions created the first chance of the half.

Vuko Tomasevic’s long-range free-kick was driven hard and low into the penalty-area, though amidst the crowded bodies, the chance went begging for Marconi.

The half came alive in the 72’ minute when Sutherland Sharks’ goalkeeper Phillip Zabaks received a straight red card for foul language.

The referee had no hesitation to brandish the Sharks shot-stopper the red card, sparking scenes of discontent from both the Sharks bench and the supporters – following Tallan Martin’s yellow card moments earlier for dissent..

Reserve goalkeeper Michael Brandalise, who kept goal for the Sharks’ Under 20 side earlier in the evening, entered the fray – Jim Bakis the unlucky player making way for his entrance.

The Stallions’ introduction of Tolgay Ozbey did provide David Barrett’s men with some additional strength up-front, and Ozbey made his presence felt immediately. 

The visitor's best chance came in the 81st minute when a long searching ball from midfield was misjudged by Michael Katz, allowing Matthew Gordon a look-in on goal from the left side of the penalty-area – Gordon’s rushed snap-shot effort though failed to force Brandalise to make a save.

Brandalise was called upon moments later as Gordon found himself with the ball at his feet on the edge of the area. The Stallions’ midfielder hit a low-driven effort, though the Sharks’ reserve shot-stopper was up to the task, and he produced a world class save down to his right.

The final chance of the match fell to the home-side as a lively Matthew Hall, who had replaced Nick Stavroulakis earlier, found some space after rounding two players on the right flank.
