Coach aims serve at 'naive' Olympic

Back in the winners' circle and top of the table, but Olympic coach Simon George left Newtown Park far from satisfied yesterday.

The 3-2 win over Palmerston North Marist leaves Olympic joint top of the Central League with Miramar Rangers and Marist, but George was unhappy his men had conceded two late goals to give the visitors a sniff.

"I thought we dominated the whole game and they didn't really create anything," George said.

"I was very disappointed in the last goal because with two minutes to go, you get a corner, you're up 3-1, just take the ball into the corner, hold on to it and wind down the clock. I thought that was pretty naive from us."

George said his side had been complacent before last week's loss to Miramar and was always going to bounce back yesterday.

"It was probably a wake-up call because we've had an unbeaten streak which lasted quite a while. I think we've got a huge amount of room to improve. We're creating a massive number of chances that we're not converting "

Hicham Kamri grabbed a brace and Mickey Malivuk notched the other goal for Olympic. George also had pats on the back for skipper Mikey Halikias and Brazilian left back Diego Carvalho.

In other games, Wairarapa beat Napier City Rovers 2-1, Miramar beat Tawa 2-1, Western Suburbs beat Lower Hutt City 3-2 and Petone thrashed Team Taranaki 4-0.
