Croatia wins thriller
Croatia is now undefeated from three games so far
Friday, 8 April 2005
Croatia scored a thrilling a four-three victory over a gallant Westlands United at Croatia park on Sunday that moves them closer to a league cup final berth.
Croatia were first to score after 10 minutes when John Morris was pulled down in the box and Robert Rendulic converted the spot kick for a one nil lead.
Croatia made it two nil five minutes later as Morris slotted in one of his own and Croatia looked to be coasting. Westlands though are showing good signs already this year and they pulled a goal back through the nippy Peter Rincon and just before half-time a header from Tallen Kilpatrick made it two-two. Westlands then got off to a perfect start in the second half as Matt Ellis latched onto a square ball to give his club a three-two lead. With 20 minutes to go Rendulic got his second as he rounded the keeper to make it three-three. With the game up for grabs, veteran Theo Stamoulis won the match with five minutes to go as his header found the net from a Nicolas Todd cross. Croatia is now undefeated from three games so far, while Westlands are showing they'll also be hard to beat this season.
