Look out Sydney FC! Avondale issue Cup warning

HOCKEY has the “Miracle on Ice”.Avondale FC conjured the “Comeback at Kingston” on Friday night to earn their maiden NPL Victoria grand final appearance with a remarkable 4-3 extra-time victory over Bentleigh Greens.The semi-final went into extra time at 1-1 and when Chris Lucas completed his hat-trick to put Bentleigh 3-1 in front at the 115-minute mark it appeared the Greens were on course to join Heidelberg United in the NPL decider.But the script writer was just warming up.Own goals in the 118th and 120th minutes levelled the game at 3-3 before former Melbourne Heart midfielder Jonatan Germano buried a free kick in the back of the net in the 121st minute to give Avondale a 4-3 advantage.“It was the most outrageous game I have ever been a part of,” Avondale captain Phil Riccobene said.The victory starts a massive week for Avondale.On Wednesday night they take on Sydney FC in a classic “David and Goliath” battle in an FFA Cup quarter-final in Broadmeadows.Then the Avengers face Heidelberg United in the NPL grand final on Sunday from 6.30pm at AAMI Park.
