Macedonian Australian football club, Preston Lions played the Fawkner Blues, which ended in a 1-1 draw this weekend. Next Sunday the Lions will take on fellow Macedonians, Altona Magic FC in round 18 of the Foxtel Cup. With this draw, the Lions have kept the unbeaten run and the lead.
Preston had taken the lead in only the 2nd minute of the match as veteran striker Johnny Sapazovski’s strike from just outside the area rocketed into the bottom corner of the Blues goal. With the half drawing to a close, Carl Recchia – who is currently trialling with Adelaide United in the A-League – struck just wide after some neat build up work by Robert Bresciano in the Blues midfield. With only stoppage time remaining Tilovski saved the day for Fawkner as Arsovski cut in from the right wing and his strike was goal bound but Tilovski denied the Lions playmaker and ensured his side got a well earned draw.
