Dou­glas Dragons down the Mar­lins

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

MAR­LIN Coast Rangers were on the agenda again on Fri­day night, as Dou­glas United re­turned to Trin­ity Park to play their sec­ond team.

The Dragons set­tled in a bit too com­fort­ably this time round, as the kick off proved.

Dou­glas United keep­ing them­selves un­der pres­sure, fail­ing to clear their lines early in the match.

The game needed some pre­ci­sion pass­ing.

And it de­liv­ered from the most un­likely of sources in a blis­ter­ing counter attack, up­stepped Union con­vert, Pete Gil­mour, pass­ing an inch per­fect pass, past Matty Smith’s de­coy… run, and onto ‘the tip toe of the Ital­ian Mae­stro’ Adri­ano Guiltieri’s run at the back post who slot­ted in the Dragons first of the night. 1-0.

The Dragons had awo­ken, and a great run by Matty Smith set up Kaleb Smith, who turned to pass back to Ni­cholas Tither who blasted in from short range. 2-0.

Matty Smith re­set­ting at half time, and blast­ing in a sec­ond half hat-trick, as our Goal­keeper Gaz had his sig­na­ture one eye open, try­ing to stay awake in the sec­ond half.

Full Time 5-0 to the Dragons. Up next, our firsts home game of the sea­son, Dou­glas United FC vs Ma­reeba Bulls FC.

Round 8 will see two of the ta­ble heavy­weights bat­tle it out, both sides un­de­feated.

We call all our lo­cals to come and sup­port us please! This Fri­day, 7:30pm, at Raider Park, Port Dou­glas Sports Com­plex!
