FFA Cup Dream Ends for Athena

Floreat Athena are out of the FFA Cup after a promising start at Velo Park against Adelaide Olympic.

After going 2 - 0 up courtesy of Ludovic Boi and then a brilliantly taken free kick by Dean Evans Athena looked to be cruising, however a flurry of goals by the home side after half time saw our boys behind 3 -2.

Incredibly the scorer of their 3rd goal, Fausto Erba, took off his shirt in celebration and was awarded his second yellow card taking him out of the action.

This somewhat deflated the home side and Athena took advantage leveling the scores as Dean Evans doubled his tally.

However a dubious penalty decision saw Olympic regain the lead as the game finished 4 -3.

Despite losing out the boys should be proud to have been part of one of the entertaining games ever witnessed in the FFA Cup.
