COCKBURN City’s FFA Cup dream is over.

Taking on Melbourne Knights in the Cup’s round of 32, Cockburn started the big match shakily, conceding a goal to Jacob Colosimo in the 21st minute before midfielder David Araya poked home an equaliser just before half time courtesy of an Angel Andres interception.

There was an arm-wrestle in the first 25 minutes of the second half before Melbourne’s Stipo Andrijasevic sealed the win for the home team with a goal in the 70th minute.
