Northern Tigers produced the upset of the weekend when they defeated previously unbeaten league leaders Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 in Round 7 of the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues' 2 NSW Men's competition.
The Tigers have this season gone about their business with little fanfare but their place in the top four sees them well positioned as the 2017 campaign reaches a critical stage.
In other matches, a brilliant hat-trick by Mason Versi led Macarthur Rams to a surprise 4-2 victory over Central Coast Mariners in an entertaining match of the round; Marconi scraped home 1-0 over bottom-placed Bankstown City Lions; North Shore Mariners and Hills Brumbies shared the spoils in a feisty one-all draw at Northbridge; St George travelled to The Crest Athletic Centre and in a good old fashioned slog fest, beat the Bankstown Berries 2-1; while Mt Druitt Town Rangers and Blacktown Spartans drew one-all at Popondetta Park.
In the only Sunday fixture, Mounties finally found their goal-scoring touch to beat Spirit FC 5-2 in a come-from-behind thriller at Valentine Sports Park.
Match of the Round
Macarthur Rams 4 Central Coast Mariners 2, Lynwood Park
Macarthur Rams grabbed their second successive win of the season when they surprised Central Coast Mariners 4-2 in the PS4 NPL 2 NSW Men's match of the round at Lynwood Park on Saturday night.
Mason Versi turned on the brilliance with a magnificent hat-trick, and caused the young Mariners plenty of grief with his skill and composure on the ball. Kurdvan Abduljabbar scored the other Rams goal, while Duncan Stewart and Yerasimakis Petratos scored one each for the Mariners.
Playing with their usual blend of skill, width and mobility, Central Coast dominated the early stages of the match. The first shot on target came in the second minute, when the Mariners' Reece Papas hit a rasping free kick from 25 yards. Rams' stand-in goalkeeper Ben Needham had trouble with the force of the shot and spilled the ball, but managed to recover just as the Mariners surged forward, hoping to tap home the rebound.
The Mariners were at it again in the 14th minute, when Steve Whyte tried his luck from long range; before Needham tipped over the bar another long-distance effort by Thomas Lyons.
With Central Coast playing with such verve and panache, a goal seemed inevitable and it took something special in the 16th minute to crack open the Macarthur defence. Some brilliant interplay between James Enticknap, Yerasimakis Petratos and Brenton Fox created a gilt-edged opportunity for striker Duncan Stewart, who tapped home the opener from close range.
Macarthur held back and absorbed the pressure, but just when it looked like Central Coast were cruising, Macarthur struck against the run of play when in the 25th minute Mason Versi bent a brilliant left-footed free kick past Mariners' keeper Adam Pearce to equalise.
The brilliant strike was Versi's appetizer, the main course would follow later.
Such was the helter skelter nature of the game that Petratos restored the Mariners' lead in the 27th minute, slotting home from inside the box.
Despite being 2-1 down, the Rams had their moments, with Frank Martey, Versi and central defender Matthew Trotter on song for the home side.
Macarthur's diligence paid off in the 33rd minute when Kurdvan Abduljabbar fired the equaliser past a despairing Mariners goalkeeper Adam Pearce.
After an entertaining first half, the two sides went to the break level at two-all. Macarthur were happy to still be in the hunt, while the Mariners were probably disappointed that they weren't able to convert a number of opportunities created.
The second half started in much the same way as the first half ended. Petratos turned his man brilliantly a few minutes into the second spell, only to be denied by a great save by Rams keeper Ben Needham.
Meanwhile, Mason Versi ramped up the heat and proved to be a menace to the young Mariners, holding possession and passing with composure and accuracy. And as Versi turned on his virtuoso performance, so too did his teammates' confidence grow. Their energy increased. Their physicality increased. Their focus intensified.
Even when Mariners livewire Peter Kekeris went off on a brilliant solo run just on the hour, bouncing his shot of the post, Macarthur simply rolled up their sleeves and redoubled their efforts.
A few minutes later that renewed focus paid dividends as Versi struck again. Causing panic in the Mariners' defence, the talented No. 15 controlled the ball with his head and ghosted past two defenders before unleashing a rasping shot past Pearce to give his side the lead for the first time.
Lynwood Park erupted and suddenly the unlikely appeared to be a possibility.
But the ding dong battle continued and no sooner had the home side gone ahead, two minutes later they lost focus on defence and conceded a penalty. Rams supporters groaned in disbelief as coach Eddie Briscoe lamented his side's immaturity. But in the end, it didn't matter as Needham pulled off a brilliant save to deny Mariners' forward Brenton Fox from grabbing the equaliser.
Needham's heroics were a game saver and not only did his save change the complexion of the game, it also reinforced the Rams' confidence and slapped the hapless Mariners stone cold across the face.
Versi took advantage and put the final nail in the coffin in the 65th minute when he launched himself into a superb acrobatic volley that gave Pearce no chance. Perfect technique. Perfect execution. The Lynwood Park faithful couldn't have asked for more.
Central Coast continued to press and went on an all-out offensive. But as hard as the young men tried, and as many opportunities as they created, they just couldn't convert the half-chances that came their way.
In the end, Macarthur secured a well-deserved victory; while the Mariners were again forced to ponder the unpredictable nature of developing young men in a league so competitive and relentless.
As expected, Macarthur Rams coach Eddie Briscoe was delighted with his side's performance.
"It was a great team effort," Briscoe told Football NSW. "Obviously Mason Versi took his chances and played a good game. I thought Damian Travis and Frank Martey were also really good; and the defence worked hard. It's hard to single out players after a performance like that, everyone did really well."
Briscoe added that his team has improved over the past seven weeks, with their understanding of tactics and structure becoming clearer.
"We're trying to play football and we're creating a few more chances and getting into positions to score. That's given us opportunities to get results."
Meanwhile, Central Coast assistant coach Will Vasquez was disappointed with his side's defensive lapses and inability to convert chances.
"I'm extremely disappointed in the way the game played out," Vasquez told Football NSW. "We created chances but at the end of the day you cannot defend like that. Conceding four goals we're not even going to be close. So (it was) very disappointing.
"They're just young boys and they're learning massively a very, very hard way. It's not easy for them to be losing these kind of games. There was still some good football. Some players did some really good things in attack but there were some big lessons for them (as well)."

North Shore Mariners 1 Hills Brumbies 1, Northbridge Oval
North Shore Mariners and Hills Brumbies played a feisty and physical one-all draw at Northbridge Oval on Saturday night but for the second week in a row, the visitors had a man sent off, with Matthew Viera receiving his marching orders on the hour.
Tadg Purcell opened the scoring for the home side in the 37th minute and just when it looked like the Mariners had done enough to claim the spoils, Greg Giovenali popped up to equalise two minutes shy of fulltime.
After last week's one-all draw with Blacktown Spartans, Mariners coach Joe Haywood was disappointed that his young side allowed a win to slip through their fingers for the second time in six days.
But one consolation for the Englishman is the fact that his side has now gone six matches unbeaten; including a 4-0 thumping of competition heavyweights Marconi in Round 5.
Meanwhile, Hills coach Dan Sheppard was pleased his side took a point out of a road trip that is fast becoming one of the most challenging, not to mention, least desirable, in the league.
To compound matters, the red carding of Viera upset the visitors, who used their anger over the decision as extra motivation to chase an equaliser. Instead of a negative reaction, the Brumbies pushed hard and ultimately, managed to steal a point when Giovenali volleyed home in the 88th minute; his second goal in as many games.
"It was a frustrating day but at least we got something out of it," Sheppard said. "It was very physical and very messy, a day we'd all rather forget."

Marconi Stallions 1
Bankstown City Lions 0, Marconi Stadium
Marko Jesic scored in the third minute to lead Marconi Stallions to a narrow 1-0 victory over bottom-placed Bankstown City Lions at Marconi Stadium on Saturday night, a result that sees the Stallions return to first place on the ladder.
Marconi last week bounced back from a goal down at halftime to humble Mt Druitt Town Rangers 5-1 but there were no signs of that second half edge against the Lions, who, despite the gulf in quality between the two sides, showed tremendous courage and character for the remaining 87 minutes.
"I am very pleased with the boys," Lions coach Mile Todoroski told Football NSW. "We fight hard and we play very well against a team that has more quality than us and that is better than us. But I don't think Marconi deserved to win, I think a draw would have been a more fair result."
Despite their precarious position in the league, Bankstown has in recent weeks showed that they're not easy beats. Last week they beat Spirit FC 2-0 and the week before they held Mounties Wanderers to a one-all draw. But this performance against top dogs Marconi, whose roster is far superior and far more experienced than any other squad in the league, was probably even better.
"We still have a long way to go," Todoroski added. "Marconi deserve to be on top of (the) league because they (have) got the results. I'm happy with (our) performance (against Marconi) but we deserve to be last because of our results. That's football."
Meanwhile, Marconi coach Tony Candy was happy to get the spoils but conceded that their goal might have come a bit too early.
"I'm happy we kept a clean sheet and to come away with the three points," Candy told Football NSW. "But we had chances to score more than one (goal) and didn't put them away. Our goal might have even come too early in the game, but credit to Bankstown, they played well and gave us a really hard game."

Mt Druitt Town Rangers 1
Blacktown Spartans 1, Popondetta Park
Mt Druitt Town Rangers and Blacktown Spartans shared the spoils in an intense one-all draw at Popondetta Park on Saturday night.
Gun striker Alex Boyadjian gave the Spartans a 1-0 lead right on the cusp of halftime; before David Mavisa equalised for the Rangers just shy of the hour mark.
"The Spartans sat and defended and they got a cheap goal and just tried to counter-attack," Mt Druitt coach Aidan Desmond told Football NSW. "It was a game we probably should have won. We had a lot of possession and a lot of chances but we just couldn't put them away. In the second half Spartans rarely had the ball. All credit to our boys, they worked really hard."
Desmond said his side turned on a good collective performance but he made special mention of the front four, including "Jamie Dib, who started in the unfamiliar position of Number 9, and goal-scorer David Mavisa.
"Spartans are organised," Desmond added. "They sit compact and they try to catch you on the counter. If you give them space to play they can hurt you. They don't create a lot, they're not a team that breaks you down. But they work hard, they're well organised and they run."
Meanwhile, Spartans coach Luis Contigiani said he thought his side was quite dominant, especially in the first half.
"We hit the crossbar and had some clear-cut chances but we couldn't put the game to bed," the Spartans coach told Football NSW. "I was very happy with our first half performance, we were able to stop their attack. We were able to create some very clear-cut chances. That was the first half. Then in the second half Mt Druitt got on top of us, especially towards the end when the game became open and end-to-end.
"To play a team like them away from home and to get a draw you've got to be happy. But I feel that early in the game if we'd put our chances away that game should've been ours.
"We're creating chances but we just don't have the composure to put them away. In defence we held strong and (apart from one goal) we were able to stop them.
"I've got young boys and Mt Druitt have got some experienced players so to be able to hold them out and create so many problems for them is pleasing. We lack maturity and composure and experience good enough to put a game away but again these are boys who want to give 100 per cent. I'm very proud of them and we've just got to keep going forward."

Western Sydney Wanderers 1 Northern Tigers 2,
Sydney United Sports Centre
Northern Tigers produced the upset of the round when they defeated previously unbeaten league leaders Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 at Sydney United Sports Centre on Saturday night.
Jordan Smylie and Liam Mcconaghy gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead, while Cameron Devlin pulled one back for the Wanderers just before halftime.
Tigers' coach Mark McCormick said he was pleased with his side's discipline and praised his charges for taking the game to the Wanderers, instead of sitting back.
"They were fantastic from the first minute," McCormick said of his team. "We set out to play in a specific way and we had a go at them. Most teams sit back and drop off and we wanted to express ourselves and we did that last night."
McCormick was also happy with his side's courage, discipline and willingness to create chances.
"We took a 2-0 lead and hit the post twice," he said. "We were defensively disciplined in the second half and well organised. Technically the Wanderers are fantastic and they have some brilliant players that I'd pay money to watch, they're that good. They're the best team we've played by miles."
When asked if there has been a secret to his side's success this season, the Tigers' mentor replied: "There's no secret. I think it's our attitude and effort, with effort being the key word. We're a really young squad, we know we're going to make mistakes. But it's our attitude towards making those mistakes that have made a difference. We've always known that we're a good team and we proved it last night. I told the boys before the game that 'you don't win a championship today and you don't get relegated today. Today's just an opportunity to go out and express yourself'."

Bankstown Berries 1 - St George 2
The Crest Athletic Centre
St George journeyed to The Crest Athletic Centre and came away with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Bankstown Berries on Saturday night.
Saints scored two late first half goals through Juan Carlos Romero and Daniel Mitwali to lead 2-0 at the break, while the Berries pulled one back through Vais in the 76th minute.
Saints' coach Terry Palapanis was delighted his side came away with the win.
"I'm thrilled we got three points to be honest," Palapanis told Football NSW. "It was a hard game, they're a decent side."
Palapanis added that the game was a tale of two halves, with Saints dominating the first 45 minutes and Berries controlling the second.
"We were just lucky to hang in there I suppose. I was a little bit disappointed in the second half because we let them come to us and we were a bit negative in our execution."
When asked what he thought of the Berries, Palapanis replied: "They're a good side. They're very well coached by Perry (Moustakas), who has been around the traps. They're very compact and hard to break down. They're extremely dangerous in set-pieces, which was a problem for us. They'll be very competitive in every match they play this year.
"I thought we pressed quite well and moved the ball quite well. It was just a good old fashioned slog. Nobody excelled and nobody was poor. The players just got stuck in and gave it their all. It was a contest right through."
Meanwhile, the loss was Bankstown Berries' first in four outings, putting an end to player coach Perry Moustakas’ three-match unbeaten streak in the competition.

Mounties Wanderers 5 Spirit FC 2, Valentine Sports Park
Mounties Wanderers came from behind to beat Spirit FC 5-2 in a high-scoring clash at Valentine Sports Park on Sunday.
Spirit opened the scoring after eight minutes but it was Mounties that led 2-1 at halftime before skipping away to a conclusive victory.
Mounties coach Lee Sterrey was thankful that his side finally found a way to score goals but he still lamented a few missed opportunities.
"To come from a goal down showed some character on our part," Sterrey told Football NSW. "We went on with it in the second half but we still had three one-on-ones that we missed. So we really could've torched them in front of goal.
"But overall the performance was good. Our quality of football was good, and we're getting there. We're still missing some chances but to finally score five in one game is very good. To get a result today was crucial because the pack at the top of the table will break away in the next two or three games, and I believe we're playing good enough football to be in the top four or top five. It's just a matter of converting opportunities."
When asked what impressed him the most about his side's performance, Sterrey replied: "The way we came back from one-nil down after eight minutes impressed me. Our usage of the football was good. We started to get in behind them, our pace of the pass was better, and we opened them up at times.
"Our front third started dominating pace a bit so I was pretty happy. We had the gilt-edged goal chances overall and a few of them. I thought we could dominate the second half if we just kept playing to our structures and we did. We played some good football and always looked like hurting them in transition. Had we taken our chances we could've really hurt them on the scoreboard."
