The Sirens preseason kicked up a gear this weekend despite a 5-4 loss to Keilor Park as the focus turns towards round 2 of the Nike FC Cup.
The 2019 Mens season started positively with a 5-0 victory over Old Marcellin in the first round of the FFA Cup. Despite a number of key players sidelined with injury, the OXSC ran out convincing winners on a warm Sunday night in February. Alex Liberto scored two goals with Chris Moloney, Marco Stella and Sean Ellicott also on the scoresheet.
In round two, the OXSC travelled to Ballarat and despite being well in the game, lost 1-0. Our final practice match was played away to Baxter SC with Ed Doolan in goal and George La Rosa on the scoresheet as we lost 3-1.
We now focus on our round one encounter against Old Marcellin on Saturday 23 March at Clifton Park in Brunswick.
