Sorrento FC maintained their 3rd place position with a hard-fought 1-1 draw on a difficult surface at Gwelup’s Croatian Sporting Complex.
Sorrento started strongly and took the lead on 6 minutes. A forward pass by Tim Hill was struck powerfully by Chris Jackson and the Gwelup keeper could only parry it out to Billy Quinncroft who gratefully smashed the ball in from 3 yards.
The Gulls held the lead until half-time but conceded a penalty early on in the 2nd half when Alex Morgan impeded Sam Mitchinson. Gustavo Marulanda converted the spot-kick to make it 1-1.
The Gulls had a few chances to win the game but it remained 1-1 at the final whistle.
Best wishes to striker Billy Quinncroft who was substituted in the first half with what looked like a bad ankle injury. We wish him all the best for a quick recovery.
If the covid lockdown is not extended, the Gulls will face Armadale at Percy Doyle Reserve in Round 14.
