Blacktown City FC came to Crehan Park yesterday with heavy hearts but left with three competition points after an emotional 2-1 win over the South Coast Wolves.The young Blacktown side was left reeling after the shock death during the week of 25-year-old team member Tyler Simpson, a former A-League player.Both sides wore black armbands and a minute's silence was observed for the former Perth Glory midfielder, the twin brother of fellow A-League and Blacktown player Jordan.Blacktown showed courage to surge from behind after John Martinoski's opening goal, with the winner coming from the boot of outstanding youngster Mitchell Duke in the 70th minute."To come to Wollongong today and get the three points was a good effort from the lads, you've got no idea how tough it's been on them," Blacktown coach Mark Crittenden said."Even in the room before the game, a few of the younger boys, it's really affected them a lot."We did it for Tyler. We didn't try and over-do that factor, we didn't try and get too emotional about it."We just tried to come here and play and do the best we could."The Wollongong guys and club were great, they were fantastic. They offered anything to help us as a club."Wolves coach Trevor Morgan said the emotional impact could have worked one of two ways. "They could have come out and been completely flat and they could have come out and showed plenty of fight," he said.In the end, it was a bit of both. A slow start, followed by an inspired finish by the 2010 grand final winners.Not surprisingly, Blacktown did seem out of sorts early and it only took one opportunity for the Wolves to strike first.City defender Zac Cairncross slipped while in possession, Mark Picciolini swooped, found Martinoski unmarked in the box and he calmly netted the opener.The first half developed into an entertaining end-to-end affair, with the visitors' midfield duo of Travis Major and Duke proving incisive.Duke forced a fine save from Brady Crane and a minute later Petrovski launched an ambitious long-range effort which flashed just wide and high of the goal.The Demons' first chance was in the 24th minute when Milorad Simonovic was released, dribbled around Crane and launched an off-balance shot which was cleared off the line by the ever-present Jacob Timpano.Mitch Long nearly equalised with a sneaky header for City, which hit the post, but it wasn't until the final moments of the first half that they got on level terms.The Wolves finally cracked after sustained pressure, defender Dave Abel skewing an attempted clearance into his own net.The flowing play of the first half gave way to a intriguing midfield struggle in the second.It was a touch of class from Duke which broke the match open, the teenager hitting a Luke Austin cross under pressure from the edge of the box into the bottom corner of the goal.
