A ROBBIE Younis master class kept Bonnyrigg's premiership hopes alive and pretty much ended Marconi's finals dream with a come from behind 2-1 win on Saturday night.

Younis scored two goals — his second in the 97th minute — in the second half to net the third placed White Eagles a vital three points to keep pace with the National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 1 leaders. Bonnyrigg coach Brian Brown was full of praise for his ace marksman.

"Robbie Younis scores two goals in classic Younis style and you would go anywhere to see finishes like that," Brown said.

"We needed the win and you could see the reaction from the players at the end."

Earlier Jared Lum put the home team in the lead just after half-time courtesy of a powerful free kick.

Unfortunately, the Stallions couldn't hold on and slip to seventh place on the ladder on 21 points — seven behind the fifth-placed Rockdale. Saturday night's loss means they have only registered one point from their last four games.

This week the Stallions host local rivals Sydney United 58 FC who got back in the winner's circle with a 2-1 win against St George FC.

First-half goals to Mirjan Pavlovic and Ante Tomic were enough to see the home team take all three points.

The Reds' fifth win of the year moves them to 18 points.
