Comment News (Gosnells) - - Sport -

AR­MADALE slumped to a 5-1 loss against Sor­rento in round 4 of the NPLWA.

Braces to Jack Sal­ter and Billy Quin­ncroft saw off the hosts in a phys­i­cal en­counter.

Sor­rento took the lead in­side 20 min­utes when Sal­ter re­acted quick­est to a loose ball in the box.

They dou­bled their lead soon af­ter when a de­flected Scott Witschge shot fell to Quin­ncroft, who made no mis­take.

Quin­ncroft added a third for Sor­rento in the 35th minute as tem­pers be­gan to flare be­tween both teams.

Ar­madale’s Kyle King pulled one back just be­fore the break when he latched on to a free kick.

Sal­ter al­most put the re­sult be­yond doubt af­ter half-time when he rounded goal­keeper Michael Craggs, only to have his shot blocked by the Ar­madale de­fence.

How­ever, they did not have to wait long to make it 4-1, when Scott Bul­loch con­verted af­ter Craggs could only parry a shot into his path.

Craggs was forced into an ex­cel­lent close-range save by Reece Vit­tiglia soon af­ter, but could do lit­tle to pre­vent Sal­ter from round­ing him to score Sor­rento’s fifth with just over 10 min­utes to play.

The re­sult means Sor­rento kept hold of top spot, while Ar­madale sit third-bot­tom with just one win in four games.
