In a massive Westfield FFA Cup match on Tuesday night 26 May 2015, it was Tuggies that emerged victorious! The hard fought match kept the vocal crowd on the edge of their seats, as the Monaro Panthers and our Tuggies lads battled to continue their Cup journey.
The Panthers struck first with a neat chip, and TUFC took a little while to settle down, but once they did the pressure started to build on the Monaro defence, with Zac Munster equalising from a penetrating through ball. It was Munster again that sent Tuggies into the lead after some trickery from Tomas Ruiz created a chance for Zac to complete his brace.
Both team turned it up a notch in the second half with a blistering pace – they both knew what was at stake – and it was Mark Shields for Monaro that brought them back into the game with a headed goal.
Ethan Munster was the hero of the night though, when he smashed his free kick past the wall and into the top corner. The Monaro ‘keeper got a hand to it but had no chance of stopping the winner.
Tuggies now advance to the local semi finals, alongside Belconnen United, Tigers FC and Gungahlin United. The draw will be completed on Thursday.
