Curtin fall against lad­der-lead­ers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport - David Can­toni

BEN Rogers had a night to re­mem­ber when he scored four of his side’s five goals to give lad­der­top­ping For­rest­field United a 5-2 win over a 10-man Curtin Uni­ver­sity on Satur­day night.

Carlo Chiellini and Dilip Thapa scored ei­ther side of the break for the vis­i­tors, but Curtin were over­run by a ram­pant Rogers while Jor­dan Hart also got on the score sheet for the home side.

Hart scored first for For­rest­field as he put the ball into Ran­jeet Sekhon’s net and only min­utes later it was time for the Rogers show to start as he dou­bled the home side’s lead.

As Rory Bin­nie played the ball out for Curtin, it was in­ter­rupted by the ref­eree who could not ma­noeu­vre out of the way.

Next it was Curtin that scored as Chiellini pulled one back with a pow­er­ful, long-range free kick that left For­rest­field cus­to­dian Brad Eiffe with no chance.

Rogers then ex­tended For­rest­field’s lead again when he scored the side’s third to give them a twogoal buf­fer head­ing into the half­time in­ter­val.

It was then Curtin that found the goal.

Curtin were al­lowed to play ad- van­tage af­ter Ed­die Tikoft was chopped down in mid­field and Jon Krawec found Thapa, whose lofted fin­ish left Eiffe stranded.

With 20 min­utes to play, Chiellini was sent from the field af­ter re­ceiv­ing his sec­ond yel­low card. For­rest­field drew away with two late goals to Rogers.

There is a bye round next week be­fore Curtin play host to El­len­brook United at Curtin Sta­dium on June 27.
