AFTER three disallowed goals, Sebastopol Vikings eventually broke through for a 1-0 win over Truganina Hornets on Saturday.

A 78-minute winner to Alex Antonelli proved the difference, ending a curse that saw three earlier goals flagged down with offside calls.

Vikingscoach Michael Busija felt his sidedominated the match at St George’s Reserve but simply could not convert on the scoreboard.

“It was probably the best full 90 minutes we’ve played all year,” he said.

“I thought it might have been one of those days where you just can’t find a goal but we finally converted.”

Having conceded six goals last week, Busija said it was especially pleasing to keep a clean sheet and actually leave little work for keeper Nick Dean.

“To turn it around after last week was really pleasing,” Busija said.

The Vikings remain in sixth sport on the FFV state league four table, but are only two wins away from top side Maribyrnong Greens.
