Hamilton Olympic were held to a 0-0 draw by Lambton Jaffas in Round 13 of the NPL at Arthur Edden Oval.
Despite the 0-0 scoreline and a match in which both sides cancelled each other out, both teams had opportunities to score, particularly Olympic!
After 11 minutes of play Alex Palozzi crossed into the Olympic area, John Majurovski brought the ball down and forced a corner from Danny Ireland.
On the half hour mark Reece Cooper served a delightful ball to Simon Mooney on the left who raced down the line and hammered a shot past Brad Swancott, only for the ball to rebound off the post!
After the break, the first goal scoring opportunity fell to Olympic when Reece Cooper put Kane Goodchild through, only for Brad Swancott to save with his feet!
A little later Reece Cooper tested the Jaffas goalie with a long range shot from outside the box while Michael Bridges did the same with Danny Ireland from a well taken free kick.
Minutes before the end Mason Campbell fired a shot from a good position only for the ball to be deflected for a corner by the Jaffas defence. From the corner Reece Cooper found himself with only the keeper to beat, but his shot sailed over the crossbar.
This draw keeps Olympic in second spot, 4 points behind Edgeworth Eagles who won away at Maitland.
