Blacktown City 3
Antelmi (22’, 66’) Gibbs (56’)
Bonnyrigg White Eagles 0
On a wet and wild night in Seven Hills, Blacktown stormed home in the western Sydney derby to progress to the quarter-finals in style.
The attacking duo of Danny Choi and Patrick Antelmi caused all the damage at Lily’s Football Centre as City dominated this clash.
After his hat-trick against Sydney United 58 in the Round of 32, Antelmi was on hand to meet Choi’s ball across the goal before guiding it back across and past Eagles keeper James Chronopoulos on 22 minutes.
Choi, the hero of the Round of 32 for City with his wonder-goal, was a constant danger but City were unable to add to their score by the break.
But add to it they did with former Western Sydney Wanderer Joey Gibbs bending his set-piece home to double the lead.
Eagles hit back immediately almost dragging a goal back but Aaron Peterson’s shot hit the bar.
Choi continued to threaten for City as the game entered its final 30 minutes and it was his partnership with Antelmi which reaped a third. A perfect curling cross from the left found his strike partner and it was guided home to all but seal the win.

Are Choi, Antelmi A-League bound?
All the talk after another dazzling performance by dynamic duo Danny Choi and Patrick Antelmi was of a move up to the Hyundai A-League - though their coach at PS4 NPL club Blacktown has stressed their supersonic rise is thanks largely to a well-structured City unit.
