Alloway lands 'big scalp'
ARCHEM Premier League battlers Alloway thrilled crowds at Martens Oval with a 2-1 defeat of Moore Park.
The upset win is a coup for new coach Elio Marcon who took the reins of the struggling team two months ago.
“It’s a pretty big scalp for us and I hope it’s a sign of things to come,” he said.
Craig Brown was a dominant force for Alloway and proved his worth in the midfield with some inspired breaks.
Brown found the back of the net early in the second half from a free kick from 25m out.
Striker Riccardo Monegado scored the winning goal with 15 minutes left in the second-half.
Marcon said the win was proof his side had what it takes to mix with the leading teams of the competition.
“I think this is evidence we’ve turned a bit of a corner,” he said.
“It’s been a tough season, but the guys are starting to work together and play good football.”
