State League Division One leaders Murdoch University Melville’s fantastic start to 2024 continued as two goals from Iljas Ahmedov helped them to a 3-1 win away to Cockburn City.

It was a fourth win in four games for Marc Anthony’s side who open up a two-point lead on the chasing pack, with three other sides also still unbeaten.

Ahmedov’s two goals in a minute sparked the game into life, with the forward heading in Brodie Langan’s cross before cleverly deflecting home Godfrey Asimwe’s low effort to take his tally to four goals in four matches.

Cockburn pulled one back 10 minutes after the interval when Ivan Skorich lofted Oliver Palmer’s cross into the net. But a comeback wouldn’t eventuate and Murdoch’s third came late in the piece when Michael Craggs’ clearance went straight to Edward Wynne-Willson who lifted home stylishly from all over 35 yards.

The result sees the MUMFC team head to Dianella White Eagles SC this weekend to continue their winning ways.
