The Goulburn Valley Suns hosted Kingston City on Sunday and it was the visitors who stole the show.

Across the five junior matches played at McEwen Reserve, the young Suns only secured one point out of a possible 15.

The under-13s, 14s, 15s, 16s and 18s all squared off against the south-east-based club and Suns technical director Shaban Mehmet was pleased with the weekend.

‘‘To be honest points only matter once we get to the senior end of the spectrum, at the moment it is about improving the kids and teaching them a brand of football we like to play at the Suns,’’ Mehmet said.

‘‘Don’t get me wrong, we still want to win games and hopefully we can continue to do that as the season progresses.’’

The under-14s were the only side to secure a point in their one-all draw with Kingston and it was Brandon Giaccherini who scored the equalising goal.

Thomas Raditsas and Zach Hutchinson scored a goal each for the under-18s in the 3-2 loss, while Garang Kuol also scored for the under-13s.
