Fairytale FFA Cup spot comes true for Hakoah

State League 1 side Hakoah Sydney City East’s dream of Westfield FFA Cup glory became a reality after they defeated SUPA IGA Mens 2 outfit Northern Tigers FC 5-1 at a wet Hensley Athletic Field.

Hakoah Sydney City East-s dream of Westfield FFA Cup glory became a reality after clinching the sixth qualifying spot defeating SUPA IGA Mens 2 outfit Northern Tigers FC 5-1 at a wet Hensley Athletic Field on Thursday evening.

On a memorable night for the State League 1 side, all five of Hakoah-s goals came from different sources as they booked their place in the Westfield FFA Cup.

With Hakoah leading 2-nil at the break, Neil Jablonski-s 56th minute penalty effectively sealed the result as they were never headed despite an 82nd minute Northern Tigers consolation goal from Daniel Cunningham.

While Hakoah now look ahead to the Round of 32 Draw which will be held on June 27, the Northern Tigers must pick themselves up for a second and final shot at qualifying for the Westfield FFA Cup against fellow Mens 2 side Parramatta FC at Mills Park on Wednesday 11th of June.
