Olympia Warriors made it third time lucky tonight when they beat Glenorchy Knights 3-1 at home in their third outing at Warrior Park, their new ground with the artificial pitch.

But, it came at a price.  Young defender Jayden Hey was taken off on a stretcher after suffering a broken ankle.

Hey had gone into the game after receiving physiotherapy on Friday because of a leg injury.

The Knights’ Corey Smith was also substituted after suffering a knee injury.  He had an ice pack strapped to his knee and was back on his feet after the match.
