Cobram Victory travelled to Shepparton to take on the undefeated Shepparton South in what was set to be a tough match for an under-strength Victory outfit.
Michael Startari and Nicholas Cox were called into the line-up to fill the gaps of its injured regulars but Victory was still confident of causing an upset.
South started the better side and was controlling possession as Victory held tight and slowly worked its way into the match.

Victory continued to push and had a handful of corners and it was Miles again who struck a perfect half volley off a corner only for his goal-bound effort to force the South keeper into a great save and keep a one-goal lead into the break.

South was now on the back foot as Victory continued to push and pressure the South defence and could have easily taken the lead when a long range effort by Marc Startari came back off the cross bar and a scramble in the box just missed that final touch.
But against the run of play South pounced again with a great cross picking out a player to restore the lead.
Victory continued to push forward leaving it vulnerable in defence as South piled on two more goals in the final five minutes to give the score line an unrealistic look at how tight the match really was.
Final score: 1-4.
This Sunday, Victory is back at home for the first time since March and will be hoping to get back on the winner’s list.
Victory was dealt a major blow in the warm-ups when star striker Mantovani went down with an injury.

Final score: 1-1.
In the second half both sides managed a goal each with Sauro scoring as Victory eventually went down 4-1 with first gamer Neil playing a great game as goalkeeper.
