An injury time goal sees Sydney Olympic win 1-0 against Sydney FC Youth at Belmore Sports Ground in the 16th round of NPL NSW.

The victory means Olympic maintain fifth position on 24 points, equal with fourth placed Rockdale who have a game in hand.

The match seemed destined for a draw until the 93rd minute when a long ball from Olympic left back Michael Glassock found Yu Hasegawa in the box, who headed it in off the crossbar to give his side a late lead.

The match began favourably for the away side, with a fifth minute shot from midfielder Clayton Taylor saved by Olympic goalkeeper Nicholas Sorras.

Olympic settled into the match and responded in the 22nd, when striker Mohamed Adam had his shot cleared off the line by Sydney captain Aaron Gurd.

Both teams defended well for the rest of the half, keeping it scoreless going into the break.

The second period began much as the first had ended, with both teams defending strongly. Goalkeeper Sorras pulled off a fantastic double save in the 67th minute, first parrying a long shot from Taylor and then knocking clear the softly hit rebound from forward Adrian Segecic.

The visitors threatened the Olympic goal again four minutes later, when substitute Jaiden Kucharski dribbled into the box and passed to teammate Oscar Priestman, whose shot was saved again by Sorras.

In the 76th minute Priestman delivered a long ball to Kucharski whose shot was deflected wide by the advancing Blues’ keeper.

A flurry of substitutions from the home side saw a lift in energy in the dying minutes.

In the 81st minute, Olympic winger Oliver Puflett delivered a cross into the box for substitute Yu Hasegawa, whose tame shot was comfortably saved by goalkeeper Levi Kaye.

Olympic held on after Hasegawa’s goal to record their second consecutive league victory, keeping pressure on the top four.

The Blues’ next league fixture is on Sunday 20 June against MT Druitt Town Rangers at Belmore Sports Ground.
