Douglas Dragons down the Marlins
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!
