Sitting in the Top 4 and having picked up strong wins against big clubs and with a host of players none bigger then Rob Armeleni
and arguably one of the leagues best in Remo Capatani, Longobarda were always going to be a difficult task for Perth AFC. With some names of their own and some of the new lads to the league finding there feet, it was early MVP candidate Andrija Jukic sparking a resounding 7-4 win who has now scored 11 goals in his past three games.
It was a woeful start to the game for Perth AFC who conceded in the first 10 seconds of the game to find themselves 1-0 down but determined to keep their three game unbeaten streak alive they hit back hard with some timely finishes from none other then Andrija Jukic who seems to have the boys feeding off him at present and playing some good team futsal.
Steven Forbes the man who loves a celebration or two linked up once again with Daniele D’Ulisse to extend the lead to 3-1 at half time.
Pretty quickly Longobarda resorted to 5th man which seems to have worried the Perth AFC defence this season and once again it proved to be a problem where Longobarda managed to pull a couple of goals back and it was game on. After two weeks of dropping points to late equalisers the lads held their nerve and ran away with the game with Jukic not only completing yet another hat trick this season but making it five goals on the night.
After a frustrating night by his own personal high standards Nathan Thorp finished the game off with a well taken half volley passing the helpless keeper.
Making it 2W 2D in the last month has seen AFC go on a nice little run of form and finally be rewarded for the hard work there putting in each week.
