Victory falls to Jets in E-League


Melbourne Victory suffered a 2-1 aggregate loss to Newcastle Jets in Round 4 of the E-League on Thursday night. 

PS4: Bohdan ‘BLfifa’ Ling 1-1 Mouad ‘MuadZwed’ Zwed

A fast-finishing Bohdan Ling struck late to deny Mouad Zwed in a nail-biting 1-1 draw.

Following a scoreless first half, Zwed looked to have done enough when he broke the deadlock courtesy of a cool finish from his E-League team-mate and real-life Victory forward Mitch Austin.

But Ling dramatically equalised late in normal time and almost stole it at the death, a well-worked move coming back off the base of the post as the pair finished level.

Dane Crow clinched Newcastle’s first aggregate triumph by edging out Victory’s Mitch Austin 1-0.

With scores level after the PS4 leg, Crow rifled in what proved to be the winner in the 14th minute.

Austin pressed for an equaliser but wasn’t unable to find the goal that would have given Victory a much-needed needed result.
