Jake MacConnechy fires in our second and winning goal against Vines Cross.

Brook Street left it late, but Jake MacConnechy’s strike three minutes from time saw us take maximum points against a side that we’d failed to pick up a single point from in six previous meetings.

“My lads were magnificent today”, said Marcus at the post-match press conference. “Everyone played their part in, what for me, was our best result of the season to date. Credit must go to our front line who pulled their defence all over the place, and created the gaps from which our goals were created”.

He continued, “We’ve now played the top four sides and defeated them all. This game was a severe test and my players, to a man, rose to the occasion.

The coach however admitted that the results so far had been better than we could have hoped.

“From our first four games, I think I would have been satisfied with nine points. To have maximum points is excellent”. He continued, “There’s a long way to go, but we’ve made a great start”.

Vines opened the scoring through Nuccio Genco’s fourteenth minute free kick and that remained the only goal of the game until Andy Harte broke through to equalise with twelve minutes left.

Both sides had rattled the woodwork, but it was Brook Street who scored the decisive goal with only three minutes remaining.

Nemanja Janković broke forward and dragged one of the central defenders out towards the wing. He then cut the ball back to the unmarked Jake MacConnechy who struck the ball first time to bury the it in the net and win the game for Brook Street.
