ECU 1 v1  PERTH    9/6/11

This game was always going to be a test for the boys as Perth are a quality side. It was a good game to watch by all accounts between two of the top sides in the league.

Perth dominated through the midfield in the first half but ECU got on the scoreboard first.  A few minutes later Perth responded with a great header from Luke Vittiglia to make it 1 all.  Luke then scored another goal late in the first half to put his team in front.

ECU came out from the half time break with a better attitude and had many chances but couldn’t seem to capitalize on them.  Halfway through the second half however Sheldon Nunes managed to get a 1 on 1 and round the keeper to level the score.

In the dying minutes it looked like Perth may strike back but ECU had luck on their side and the game ended in a draw.  A fitting result to a well contested game!
