REPORT: Adelaide United rout Melbourne City 4-0 for third FFA Cup win
'DESTINED FOR REALLY BIG THINGS'Incredible story behind Toure's remarkable rise

Preliminary Rounds

Paul Zimarino (Perth SC)

The Western Australian NPL champions might have just missed out on a spot in the Round of 32 but they provided one of the goals of the competition.

It was scored by Zimarino with this sublime volley that scorched into the top corner of the net against Balga.


Andy Jerez (Berwick City)

Playing against North Caulfield, Jerez burst forward from midfield before unleashing an unstoppable drive from more than 25 metres out which ended where the spider’s live.

Round of 32

Dean Evans (Floreat Athena)

Is there anything better than a sweetly-hit free-kick?

While it didn’t get his team the result, Floreat skipper Dean Evans produced one for the highlights reel that the Adelaide Olympic keeper could only watch in admiration as it flew into the net.


Dimi Petratos (Newcastle Jets)

There’s arguably no better exponent of a long-distance howitzer than Jets whiz Petratos.

And the three-cap Caltex Socceroo added another stunner to his already impressive catalogue to inspire his side’s come-from-behind win over Melbourne Victory.


Aden Gardner (Edgeworth FC)

This goal was all about precision. Receiving the ball just outside Darwin Olympic’s box, there seemed little danger to the home side’s goal.

But Gardner showed great awareness to spot the keeper slightly off his line before producing an inch-perfect chip to double his side’s lead in the Top End.

Round of 16

Liam Cannell (Moreland Zebras)

The team from Victoria’s NPL2 cruised into the last eight with a 4-0 win over Magpies Crusaders, with Cannell’s goal the best of the bunch.

He played a clever one-two with a teammate on the edge of the box before letting fly with a first-time strike that nestled in the bottom corner of the net.


Martin Fernandez (Marconi Stallions)

His side may have been on the wrong end of the result but Fernandez provided an unforgettable highlight in the 2-1 defeat to Melbourne City.

Picking up possession just outside the box, Fernandez dribbled past one defender before executing a precise chip over the 'keeper and into the top corner.

Quarter Finals

Craig Noone (Melbourne City)

Noone scored his second in City’s 3-0 defeat of Wanderers late in the game, and what a sumptuous finish it was.

Connecting with a long ball from Josh Brillante, Noone gathered on the left-corner of the Wanderers box and shaped up against Tate Russell.

Feinting to shift the ball right with a step-over Noone then committed to the cut inside, and while falling to the floor Noone carved a curling effort on goal which swung past Daniel Lopar, nicked off the right-hand goalpost and dropped into the net.

Semi Finals

Scott Galloway (Melbourne City)

The industrious defender doesn’t score many goals but when he does they are often crackers.

And that was the case with the final goal of the night against the Strikers, Galloway hitting a vicious swerving strike that was hit too sweetly for keeper Bon Scott to keep out.

Final

Al Hassan Toure (Adelaide United)

The classy teenager was sent clear but a precise through-ball by right-back Ryan Strain.

Toure showed great awareness to spot City goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis leave too much space at his near post, arrowing in a low shot to give the Reds the lead.
