We’re down to the last four teams in Tasmania as the race for a spot in this year’s FFA Cup Round of 32 heats up.
The draw for the semi-final stage of the Lakoseljac Cup – which also mirrors as the qualifying process for the FFA Cup – was held on Monday throwing up two interesting clashes.
In the standout fixture, South Hobart and Olympia will renew their rivalry as they meet at Darcy Street in an all NPL Tasmania affair.
Olympia won the season-opening game 2-1 to break a winless run of 12 games against South, before the pair played out a wildly entertaining 3-3 draw in their most recent clash.
In the second encounter, Championship side University’s hopes of extending their underdog run have been given a boost by being drawn at home, but they will have to overcome the current holders in Devonport.
The Strikers booked their place with a thrilling penalty shoot-out win over the Hobart Zebras whilst University thumped Somerset 5-0.
The winner of the Lakoseljac Cup will be Tasmania’s representative in this year’s FFA Cup.
The games will be played on the weekend of May 25-26.
- South Hobart v Olympia
- University v Devonport
