Dragons con­tinue to de­mol­ish op­po­si­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

The Dou­glas United Dragons had a dom­i­nant win over the Le­ichardt Lions last Fri­day night.

The Le­ichardt side was no match for the Dragons foot­ballers, who crushed the home side 9-0.

Striker Sean Brown got the boys off to a pow­er­ful start with a dou­ble strike in the 12th and 13th min­utes.

He scored six goals in to­tal and now is the League’s top goal scorer.

Af­ter Brown got United on the board, the goals kept on com­ing and they went to the in­ter­val hold­ing a 5-0 lead.

Dou­glas side took awhile to re-es­tab­lish their struc­ture in a slow start to the sec­ond half, be­fore go­ing on to score four more unan­swered goals.

The stel­lar per­for­mance came de­spite a reshuf­fle to ac­com­mo­date the ab­sence of key play­ers from the line-up.

Gra­ham Gaugh­ran stepped in for ab­sent cen­tral de­fender Nick Tither and re­ceived a Man of the Match award for his ef­forts.

Scott Gilchrist as­sumed the role of Cap­tain in in Tither’ ab­sence and mus­tered the troops well.

Also on the scor­ers’ sheet were Gilchrist, Matt Smith and Joe Abe­dini.

A solid win at home this Fri­day against Strat­ford will give United an unas­sail­able lead in the premier­ship race.
