Full Time: Kingborough 2-1 South Hobart

90′ Morton with a shot from a good 40 yards that just holds up completely in the wind.

84′ RED CARD! And now he is off, a second yellow for a late foul on Lakoseljac. Two bookings in a minute for Schuth and he is off.

83′ Schuth enters the book for bringing down Morton to stop a potential counter.

80′ Downes with a sweet left footed volley from the right that draws a good save at full extension from Brown.

78′ Dominic Easton with a block on Leszczynski to deny a close range shot.

77′ South win 3 corners as they push for a goal to ice the game, Lions holding on.

70′ A rampaging run from Turner leads to a chipped Morton effort that Stalker punches clear.

69′ SAVE! Brown comes up big to deny Gutierrez from point blank range, very similar to his save on Nkoso last week. Shifting across, makes himself big and the attacker picks him out.

62′ GOAL! 2-1! South take the lead! Berezensky’s shot is pushed back centrally by the leg of Stalker, Turner first times a shot that deflects off Schuth into Stalker and then pops back up for Turner who prods home.

57′ Kantzos can’t pick out a teammate in the middle of the box, with Brown stranded off his line. Big chance there.

56′ Leszczynski on the turn fires over the bar, it came following another marauding run in behind from Gorrie but was stopped by some good defence from Zammit.

55′ A wonderful through ball for Gorrie springs him and his cross from the by-line can’t pick out Morton in the middle.

50′ Berezensky receives at the top of the box, takes a touch then drives a shot that Stalker gets down to and gathers.

46′ Back underway at the Den, Berezensky replaced an injured Herweynen.

HALF TIME

41′ Desouza fires across the face of goal, driving it just wide of the mark.

37′ SUB- Calvert pulls the trigger early and replaces Hall with Davis

35′ SAVE!!! Gorrie is denied by Stalker who dives to his right and keeps it out comfortably.

35′ Penalty! Desouza hacked down in the box after Easton coughed it up to Morton at the top of the box, clear pen that!

33′ Feral makes a ghosting run into the box and then heads over the bar from 10 yards out from an Adam Gorrie cross.

31′ Turner plays it to Leszczysnki, slightly behind him and it causes a weak shot straight at the keeper. Turner has been immense in attack so far, really running the show.

27′ Shot on! Leszczynski curls an effort from 30 yards that Stalker catches.

25′ A second good piece of defending from Zammit to break up an attack, strong start from him.

22′ Desouza tugs a shot wide from a similar range to where he scored from the other night.

18′ Superb piece of defending from Phil Kantzos to charge back and get a block on Morton’s shot after he had been played through 1 v 1 by Turner.

10′ GOAL! 1-1! South respond immediately, Gorrie crosses and Stalker gets a hand on it, it falls to Morton who strokes home with the left. 

7′ GOAL! 1-0 Lions! Downes has taken advantage of a misplaced pass at the back, with Brown way off his line he chips it home from 40 yards. 

4′ Downes curls in a great free kick that ends up at the back post where a stretching Schutch can’t quite direct his effort on target.

1′ Underway at the Den.

Welcome to the Den for the first of the mid week fixtures we will see trialled in season 2019. After the weather intervened on Saturday, the Lions now get to start their season at home against a South Hobart side looking to bounce back after a disappointing opening night defeat to Olympia. Its our first look at the Lions under new boss Greg Calvert and it should be an interesting game. Of course it was early in the 2018 season the Lions claimed a draw against South as they stumbled out of the blocks and the visitors will be desperate to avoid a repeat this year.
