CSUFC got their Challenge Cup campaign off to a dream start with a victory in their opening match against Dubbo Macquarie United.

Dubbo opened the scoring early before CSU equalised off the boot of Ollie Briggs – Talan Myers providing the assist.

The Stags soon hit the front, as Semon Rakiwskyj delivered a quality free kick which was nodded home by Briggs – who notched his second of the afternoon.

The scores were soon level once again however as Dubbo found the net, seeing the score locked at 2-2 at the break.

However, CSU weren’t done yet and managed to snatch a winner through Callum Weafer who headed home from a Rakiwskyj corner in his first match as a Stag!

Man of the match honours went the way of Semon Rakiwskyj who’s two set piece assists proved crucial as CSU got off to a much needed winning start.
