Another trophy for the cabinet

Amongst all the news about the Asian Cup, the news that the Victory won the Lord Mayors’ Cup on Saturday night slipped under the radar. They were successful with a 6-5 win on penalties against sister-city rivals Tianjin Teda in Beijing on Saturday tonight, after the full-time scores were locked at a goal apiece. The Lord Mayor's Cup now joins the Premiership Plate and Championship Trophy in our rapidly expanding trophy case. Heroes for the Victory were the ever reliable Danny Allsop who scored in the 32nd minute, and Eugene Galekovic who was instrumental in the penalty shootout by pulling off two saves.
