An unbeaten start to the season for Gold Coast’s VFL side, heading home two-point winners over the Sydney Swans in Friday night football at Blacktown International Sportspark.

The SUNS  first goal of the night came from an unlikely source when Connor Budarick was awarded a 50m penalty, he went back and slotted the ensuing set shot from 20m out.

After the half time break Sam Day showed all of his skill and experience as he continues his return back to full fitness with three goals in the quarter.

The third was an unbelievable end to end 37-minute contest with Sydney edging in front at the final change with a six goal seven quarter to lead by 17 points.

A tight battle ensued in the final quarter with both sides going goalless in the first 20 minutes, before the floodgates opened with four goals in the next six minutes to bring the SUNS back into the contest.

Tsitas kicked the first for the quarter after getting a free kick 35m out directly in front for head high contact, keeping the SUNS head above water with just over ten minutes left in the game.
