Saturday was a day to savour for SSC’s Golden Goal Petratos family, with Dimi, Kosta and Panagiota all playing in winning football sides in Newcastle.
The trio all joined the Newcastle Jets this season and with both outfits making unbeaten starts to their respective seasons it’s proved to be a great move!
Dimi, who has enjoyed a blistering start to the A-League season, was named man of the match in the Jets’ 3-0 home win over Wellington Phoenix.
The 24-year-old helped set up a couple of his side’s goals and as always looked lethal on set-piece duties.
The clash also saw younger brother Kosta make his Jets debut when he came on as a second-half substitute and looked lively on the ball during his brief cameo.
Speaking to Fox Sports after the match Dimi spoke of how much he is enjoying being at his new club.
“It was a great night. We worked hard all week, stayed focused and we came out and did the job today,” said Dimi.
“It was great to be out here with my brother, I was very excited.
“It’s good to get another win today for the home crowd – our first home win of the season!”
Earlier in the day, Panagiota (who made her W-League debut last weekend) came off the bench for the Jets for the second week in a row as her side claimed a well-deserved 2-0 win over Sydney FC.
While we were cheering them all on in the clubhouse there was a band of Petratos’ in the crowd at Hunter Stadium (including proud Mum and Dad – Chris and Angelo) showing their support.
