Sam Hall passed away on March 31 2013. We were all shocked and saddened to hear of Sam’s passing. Sam was truly an integral part of the Olympic State League 2 team and the Olympic Club, both on and off the field.
He will always be a great team-mate, school mate and most of all a great friend.
The most enjoyable thing about playing with a team of mates is the great energy and spirit that you feel with every game.  Sam was at the centre of this morale.  We will be sure to keep him in our hearts and minds every time we set foot on a field.
Words cannot express our deepest sympathy to his family at this time.
He will stay in the hearts and mind of all the Olympic boys now and forever, and send our prayers to him and his family

11.04.13 – Olympic too classy for stubborn Auburn FC

Waratah Cup Round 2
Canberra Olympic 5 (Robbie Deeley (pen) 31’, 59’, Oliver Wiederkehr 46’, Robbie Schroder 53’, Matt Cachia 89’) Auburn FC 0
Canberra Olympic made light work of Auburn FC at Hawker Football Centre to progress to the third round of the Waratah Cup at the expense of their Granville & District Premier League opponents, winning 5-0 in an ultimately dominant display.
It took just over half an hour for the ACT team to make the breakthrough and when they did it was from the penalty spot. Robbie Deeley beat his man on the right flank and crossed deep where Oliver Wiederkehr collected and chipped into Robbie Schroder bursting into the box. Schroder got his header away, on target, but was cleaned out in the air in the process and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Deeley took the responsibility and sent the ‘keeper the wrong way with a confident strike.
Auburn were providing stubborn resistance and in target man Taslak had a willing, and tireless, front runner, whom they looked to hit with every opportunity sending raking long balls towards the number nine. And with a midfield that was biting into every challenge and not giving an inch, it was obvious that Olympic would have to battle hard to progress. As it was Deeley’s strike separated the teams at the interval.
Whatever words Head Coach Leo Exarhos had for his team at the break obviously struck a chord as Olympic doubled their advantage 39 seconds after the restart. Oliver Wiederkehr latched onto the ball and from fully 25 metres sent a superb lob over the head of the Auburn shot-stopper for a quite brilliant goal that gave his team the breathing space required. And from that point on they never looked back.
Schroder, celebrating his 38th birthday, got in on the act by meeting a cross with a bullet header from 8 metres that fairly flew into the net to make it 3-0 in the 53rd minute and six minutes later it was four. Olympic stretched the Auburn defence again and Deeley burst clear to finish with the outside of his left foot into the far corner from the angle, a confident finish from a player who seems to have rediscovered his form.
By now Auburn FC was a beaten team but, to their credit, they kept battling away and refused to give in, defending desperately and attacking on the counter. In truth they simply couldn’t handle the pace of the hosts who looked threatening with every attack, with Wiederkehr in particular leading the Auburn defence a merry dance.
The only question was whether Olympic could add to their tally in the time remaining as Auburn FC tired. Joshua Gaspari looked dangerous on the left flank and there were lively cameos from substitutes Jeremy Habtemariam and Nick Mihailakis. Mihailakis could have made it five in the 83rd minute, after being brought down in the area, but his penalty struck the post and rebounded off the ‘keeper’s head and just failed to cross the line.
It mattered little though as Matt Cachia bundled in a fifth in the last minute to complete a resounding victory. Olympic will now meet Western NSW Football away on Wednesday 24th April.
Canberra Olympic: 1. Angelo Konstantinou, 5. Josh Gaspari, 8. Chris Nikitas, 10. Robbie Deeley, 11. Nathan Tidmarsh, 13. Robbie Schroder, 14. Oliver Wiederkehr, 15. Daniel Fulton, 17. Trent Flanigan, 18. Nick Bobolas, 56. Matt Cachia
