Goulburn Valley Suns have met their match as they aim to progress in this year’s FFA Cup competition.
Yesterday the Suns drew the Northern Falcons in what shapes as another tantalising encounter across the Easter long weekend.
With football leagues across the region beginning their season, soccer’s turn will come on Saturday, March 31 when the Suns host the Falcons in an afternoon meeting at McEwen Reserve.
Northern Falcons have defeated Kings Domain, North Melbourne Athletic and Harrisfield Hurricanes in the lead-up to this point.
The State League division four side has not been going about its business quietly either, crushing North Melbourne 6-1 as well as retaining a clean sheet against the Hurricanes.
But the Suns will take some solid form into the clash if the Craig Carley-led side continues the purple-patch it is enjoying.
The National Premier League division two side was forced to produce an A-grade performance to defeat Eastern Lions at the weekend, backing up a victory against Nunawading City.
Import Jordan Barrow should provide the spark Goulburn Valley needs as it aims to progress further than last year when it was defeated 0-1 in its first match of the FFA Cup.
After a fairytale run, Tatura had its outstanding cup run ended when it drew State League One side Manningham United Blues, going down 13-0.
