Weather cannot stop Omonia Youth FC teams recording important wins

January 19, 2017


Last Sunday, community football club Omonia Youth FC, sponsored by P&M Construction Ltd, again had cause to celebrate. Even though many fixtures had to succumb to poor weather conditions, there were nonetheless many superb team and individual performances.

Nick Zimaras’ Under 16 White won 5-3 away having had to come from 2-0 down at half time and again being 3-2 down. It was a thoroughly deserved win as the team created many chances. Goals were scored by Aaron Arnold (2), Cem, Joe Cannon and Rosley. Aaron Arnold was awarded Man of the Match.

Elia Constanti’s Under 16 Green drew 2-2 in difficult conditions. The stark emotions in football were never more exemplified as the U16 Green could have won the game with a few minutes to go but hit the post and then conceded a penalty only for a wonder save from Nikolas Matjilla kept the scores level. Goal scorers were Kobi Brown and Christian Medina. Man of the Match was Lotjan Breganaku

Nick Lingis and Mario Christoforou Under 12 Green suffered their first defeat of the season losing 2-0. Even so, the team put in their best performance of the season with both Nick and Mario proud of their team. As a result the whole team were awarded as Man of the Match.

In the Mid-Herts Premier League the Under 14 Green of Varney Michael, Dean Dionisiou, Neo Petrides and Mario Kleoppa saw their team stay top of the league with a stunning performance in tough conditions. The U14 Green won 3-1 with George Stasi, Toby Abanna and Clinton Beokojie getting the goals. Shaun Sadegian was Man of the Match.

Andy Charalambous’ Under 14 White surprisingly lost to 2-0 even though they created many goalscoring opportunities.

Mike Petrou and Kyri Haili’s Under 13 White put on an fantastic performances with Hoa-Xin O’Sullivan singled out for particular praise who scored four goals in a 5-3 win. David Preece got the other goal.

Another Omonia Youth player who scored four goals was Chris Yiannitsarou for Chris Gregoriou’s Under 15 White.
