FFA Cup kicks off
By Jevan Collins
The FFA cup made a return last night when the Brisbane Roar took on NPL QLD outfit Peninsula Power at Moreton Daily Stadium after a years high attest due to Covid that canceled the cup last year.
Last night we got to see the magic of the FFA cup return for Peninsula Power and the Brisbane Roar as well as see it on the new home of football channel 10, who won the rights to the A-league and the FFA cup from Fox Sports, at a half sold out Morton Daily Stadium.
The Brisbane Roar really flexed their A-League status as they went on to win the game 3-0 thanks to 2 goals in the first half one from Matti Steinmann and new signing from Sydney FC Luke Ivanovic to lead 2-0 going into halftime.
The Roar didn’t stop there as they scored one more goal in the 87 minutes from Juan Eduardo Lescano to extend their lead to 3-0 and that’s how the game finished, The Roar move onto the next round of the cup, and Peninsula Power could have dreamed of what could have been taking down an A-League powerhouse.
The next game in the cup is tonight as Edge Hill United plays Gold Coast FC in an all NPL affair you can catch that game live and free on channel 10.
