MetroStars Seal 2023 Premiership!

Written by Antonis Pangonis

Barring a catastrophe that would see MetroStars drop three points against Modbury Jets, and Campbelltown pick up a win and make up a 10-goal difference, Danny Graystone’s side would finish Round 22 as Premiers.

Despite that, the visitors decided not to leave their aspirations to fate and started strongly, after a string of corners culminated with Fabian Barbiero’s header meeting captain Anthony Solagna on the goalline who opened the scoring for his side.

The festive atmosphere amongst the away fans at Smith Partners Stadium was dampened when referee Andrew Kite judged that Austin Ayoubi had impeded Liam McCabe on the last line of defence, sending off the midfielder half an hour into the match. After Metro went a man down, the Jets had their first real opportunities of the game, but the league leaders went into the break ahead on the scoreboard.

Just after the hour mark Paul Wilson brought James Temeklovski in the box, but Hamish Gow’s effort from the penalty spot was met by Ryan Neild to keep MetroStars lead to a single goal.

Both sides had chances but the score did not change, MetroStars celebrated its first Premiership since 2014 and even joined Modbury after the game to help raise money to fight MND, in support of Jets’ club legend Ray Coull who is currently fighting the rare condition.
