South extend unbeaten run to 6 matches with win at Altona

South Melbourne came into the match against Altona Magic with Emile Peios and Cooper Halfpenny starting, two young players eager to make an impact. The match started with South Melbourne displaying their attacking power early on.

The breakthrough came when Max Mikkola capitalised on a loose ball from the Altona defence, confidently slotting it past goalkeeper Rossi to give South Melbourne a 1-0 lead. Despite dominating possession for the remainder of the first half, South Melbourne couldn’t extend their lead further, with some missed chances and impressive saves from the Altona goalkeeper keeping the score at 1-0 going into halftime.

After the break, South Melbourne continued to assert their dominance on the game. Nahuel Bonada doubled their lead with a beautifully taken finish from just inside the area. The momentum was firmly with South Melbourne as they pressed forward.

Harrison Sawyer further extended South Melbourne’s lead by converting a penalty, before Ross Archibald added his name to the scoresheet by capitalising on a loose ball following his initial header hitting the bar.

Altona Magic managed to pull one back in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to halt South Melbourne’s charge. With this victory, South Melbourne extended their unbeaten run to six games and cemented their position at the top of the table.

The next fixture promises to be a thrilling encounter as South Melbourne faces Oakleigh away on Friday night in a clash between two undefeated teams. Both sides will be eager to maintain their impressive form and secure another important victory.
