Vance boys take a tough stance

February 20, 2018

Goulburn Valley Suns' under-20 coach Stuart Vance.

The Goulburn Valley Suns’ under-20s gave their new coach the perfect welcome present with a confident 3-2 win in the first round of the NPL2 season.

In Stuart Vance’s first game in charge of the GV youngsters, the Suns had no trouble playing free-flowing football and took their chances to grab a first-up win.

Brenton Urbaniak, Zac Hutchinson and Fraser Gosstray got on the scoresheet for the Suns as they avenged a final round defeat from last year.

Both sides scored early in the game with the score 1-1 25 minutes in.

From there, Goulburn Valley took control of the game, winning a penalty and having it duly converted for a 2-1 lead.

The Suns pushed on looking to do even more damage, but could not find a crucial third goal before the half, the scores unchanged as the teams hit the sheds.

But early in the second the Suns broke through for the crucial two-goal cushion 56 minutes in.

City pulled a goal back for 3-2 with 10 minutes left, but the Suns had enough to hang on and claim the three points.

The season rolls on for the GV with a round two game against Langwarrin on Saturday.
