On Saturday afternoon, while it wasn’t Sydney FC Academy’s best overall performance of the season, they showcased their dominance in creating chances against fellow Academy outfit, Macarthur Bulls. Ultimately, the game could have swung either way, keeping spectators on the edge of their seats until the final whistle.
One of the standout moments of the match came from Oscar Fryer, a talented U17 player making his second start for Sydney FC. Fryer managed to find the back of the net, scoring his first NPL goal. Fryer backs up his goal following last week’s performance which earned him a spot in the Team of the Week.
Another notable highlight was Joey Calusic, who made his first NPL appearance of the current season. Calusic stepped in for Nathan Paull and his inclusion provided a fresh perspective to the team, injecting energy and determination into their play.
Throughout the match, Adam Pavlesic, Sydney FC’s goalkeeper, proved to be a crucial presence. He made a series of impressive saves in both halves, demonstrating his agility and shot-stopping abilities. Pavlesic’s performance was vital in keeping the opposition at bay and preserving his team’s chances of securing a positive result.
Earlier in the day the U20’s had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Two standout performers were Tyler Williams and Noah Mathie, both U16 players who showcased their potential as young talents within the team.
While the overall performance may not have lived up to Sydney FC Academy’s high standards, there were certainly positive aspects to take away from the match. Sydney FC Academy will undoubtedly use this match as a learning experience and strive to improve their performance in future games.
