South Melbourne FC’s Hellenic Cup title defence is still on track, after progressing through to the semi-finals of the 2012 Hellenic Cup.
New recruit Glen Trifiro scored a brace, including an unstoppable free kick, while Joe Keenan also got onto the score sheet, to see off a dogged Malvern side in a match played in pouring rain. Having topped the group, South was due to play Altona East Phoenix yesterday in the quarter finals – however Altona East forfeited the match due to the lack of playing stocks.
Thus, South Melbourne FC has progressed to the semi-final against Western Suburbs, who have already defeated South in 2012, in a friendly match played in February. The semi-final will be played at Kingston City’s The Grange Reserve on Wednesday 7th March. The winner of that match will play the winner of the other semi-final, between Heidelberg and Northcote.
