One Kuol customer seals win

June 27, 2017

Winger Fabrice Ebe is hoping for a recall to the senior squad after regaining some much-needed form.

Cometh the moment, cometh the man.

Two goals in four minutes from Alou Kuol ensured the Goulburn Valley Suns under-20s left Albury-Wodonga with all three points on Saturday.

Fred Zito’s charges were made to fight for the their 2-0 victory against rivals Murray United, but the buoyant coach was pleased with his side’s performance.

‘‘We were very good on Saturday, it was a disciplined performance and when things did not go our way, we continued to fight,’’ Zito said.

‘‘We held our structures and I do not think we could have asked for much more.’’

Kuol, 15, broke through in the 68th minute to coolly slot past the keeper in a one-on-one situation, before doing much the same only four minutes later to double his side’s lead.

The explosive talent, who featured for the seniors against Werribee, has scored 12 goals this season and sits third in the league’s goal-scoring tally.

‘‘He is a good player, he is quick and he can score goals,’’ Zito said.

Coincidentally, the Suns under-20s also sit on 27 points this season, having won, drawn and lost the same amount of games as the senior side after 20 games.

Fabrice Ebe, who is pushing for a return to the seniors, played himself into form last weekend, while Mohammed Al-Gazaly and Cooper Gosstray were also impressive.

Emre Cilik also made his return following his suspension last week, while Makuac Makuac made way for Fraser Gosstray with 20 minutes to spare.

The fledgling Suns are in a decent run of form, losing one out of the past five games, with three wins and a draw.

Zito’s side sits seventh on the table ahead of facing west division top side Northcote next week.
