Solstice Photography

GK- Niko Giantsopoulos (Launceston City)

Made some enormous stops to give his side a fighting chance, and saved his second penalty in as many weeks.

RB- Pat Lanau-Atkinson (Northern Rangers)

Offered plenty going forwards as he scored a wonderful goal as he tore up the middle of the ground and helped play in his brother for the opening goal.

CB- Lucas Hill (Olympia)

Hill’s pace was crucial in trying to shut down Tyler Fischer and he made a series of important full stretch challenges to deny good scoring chances.

CB- Jan Charuza (Hobart Zebras) 

A towering presence in defence, Charuza was an immovable object for the Zebras shutting down any attack that came his way.

LB- Joel Sammut (Olympia)

Sammut is in a nice patch of form at the moment and his combination play with Griffiths down the left gave City a torrid time of it, a good two way display.

CM- Harry Thannhauser- (Northern Rangers)

Rangers midfield star had a big impact on the contest and got his reward with the final goal of the game to cap his performance.

CM- Kobe Kemp (South Hobart)

Played a gem of a through ball to set up Jack Turner’s first goal before he crashed home a goal of his own in emphatic fashion.

CM- Eduardo Castaneda (Olympia)

Is starting to take hold of games and play with confidence. His set-piece delivery was top drawer, creating some good scoring chances whilst bagging a quality goal of his own.

CF- Jack Turner (South Hobart)

Thrust into attack, Turner was involved in all three of his side’s goals. He scored the first with an emphatic finish, set up the second with a backheel and then impacted the contest that led to Walter’s tap in.

ST- Mathew Sanders (Hobart Zebras) 

The Colonel kept up his fine form with a goal and then paved the assist for Sklenar, as he continued to play the link man role to great effect.

ST- Brayden Mann (Devonport)

Barely had a touch in the first half before making his presence felt with a brace of the highest quality to lead the fightback. Both goals showed stunning technique with his scissor kick first a contender for GOTY.

Coach- Ken Morton (South Hobart)

Needed his side to win to keep themselves in the title race and an explosive first half delivered just that, the move of Turner to the target man role proved a masterstroke.
