The Western Sydney Wanderers maintained their position at the top of the PS4 NPL2 ladder when they defeated Macarthur Rams 4-0.The dominant victory was set-up in the first half when a double to Jordan Morfitis as well as strikes to Cameron Devlin and Kyle Cimenti meant the second half was simply a formality.
With Sydney FC only one point behind the Red & Black, the Wanderers could not afford a slip-up and they got off to the perfect start when Devlin slotted one from outside the box in only the fifth minute.
It was a strike to be proud of and the lead was doubled midway through the half when Morfitis got his first of the afternoon with a curling shot from the outside of the area.
Momentum was certainly going the way of the Wanderers and they put the match beyond reach shortly afterwards when Morfitis scored his second to make it 3-0!
Just when it looked like it couldn’t get any worse for the Rams, Cimenti tapped-in a Morfitis cross after the winger was fed by a nice Tariq Maia run.
4-0 at half time and the match was as good as over.
Wanderers’ keeper Matt Symes was forced into action early in the second half, making a terrific save, and Cimenti almost got his second with a snap shot on the turn but that was all the action in the second stanza.
A very solid win that keeps the Red & Black one point ahead of Sydney FC on the NPL2 ladder.
This Saturday the Wanderers take on Bankstown Berries at the Crest Athletic Centre with kick-off at 7pm.
