NPL TAS : Olympia keep title hopes alive

Olympia have pulled off one of the comebacks of the season, defeating Kingborough Lions 3-2 in the NPL TAS at Lightwood Park.

Chris Downes scored the first past Warrior’s keeper Kyle McDonald.

Olympia’s Lucas Hill and Lion’s Jack Turner both earned themselves a yellow card for reacting on bad challenges.

Jack Turner was given a red card early before the break.

James Hall and US import Cameron Steele combined to give the Lions a second goal.

The comeback began when Jordan Scott scored a quick brace late before stoppage time.

Lions defender Keenan Douce gave away a penalty for a handball in the box. A red card booking followed which left the home side down to 9 men.

Jack Ryan calmly finished his penalty and secured all 3 points.

Olympia’s win keeps the pressure on the Devonport Strikers and brings their lead on top down to just two points.

What an incredible game of football.
