It was a nice weekend for football, and Albert Park did not disappoint.
Our Reserves faced off against Middle Park FC and were unlucky to walk away with a 0-1 defeat, despite some amazing defending.
The Seniors took to the park without suspended captain John Carroll, but with the season coming to an end and the top two team gaining promotion, we were in no place to drop any points.
Middle Park came out scrappy, more keen to foul and foul mouth than play the ball. An early goal from Matt Richardson gave us a first half boost before Pat Makris took a long range gamble that went through the unfortunate legs of the Middle Park keeper for our second.
Makris got his brace in the second half as the Parkers lost their centre back to a second yellow, and we took home three goals and three points.
The Golds took on Watsonia Heights at home with Dean Leigh getting a brace, lifting him higher and higher away from the pack for the Golden Boot. Morrison Mai grabed one to make it a 3-1 scoreline.
The Silvers had a bye.
