Match Report:

SD Raiders came and conquered at Magdala Park on Sunday afternoon, beating Gladesville Ryde Magic 3-1 to take home all the spoils.

After a closely fought first period, the action exploded in a five-minute spell just after the hour mark.

It was the Raiders who took the lead in the 67th minute when Daniel Bittar received a pass from Dylan Stivala before slotting past Magic custodian, Kyriakos Tohouroglou.

But Gladesville restored parity within a couple of minutes, Yorgi Mavrou knocking in a rebound after Raiders’ keeper, Tomi Romic, parried a Peter Voukidis free kick.

The Raiders however themselves responded within sixty seconds, when cries for a penalty appeal fell on deaf ears. Players from both sides seemed to stop, all except Daniel Bittar, who picked up the loose ball to strike it home and edge the visitors in front.

SD Raiders put the game out of reach in the 88th minute, when that man, Bittar, this time played provider. Bittar made a run down the right flank, cut inside before drawing Gladesville keeper, Tohouroglou, and squaring the ball for Daniel Martinez to score Raiders’ third and final goal.

The loss leaves Gladesville Ryde Magic languishing on 9 points in 12th spot on the ladder, but SD Raiders move in to 4th position on 16 points courtesy of their win.
