City win Waratah Cup

Blacktown City blitzed Manly United in the second half to win its third Waratah Cup title at Lambert Park at the weekend.

Blacktown fired in four second-half goals after a tough opening 45 minutes as Japanese player Ryuji Miyazawa starred for the Blacktown side.

Blacktown won 6-2, much to the surprise of club director Ken Schembri.

"We're a pretty attacking side but you don't expect to score six goals in a final," he said.

"It's pleasing to win because it's a prestigious and tough tournament.

"Now we've got six weeks left to concentrate on the title race."

Blacktown won the Waratah Cup in 2007 and 1993.
