Uni pro­duce a study in at­tack­ing soc­cer

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

CURTIN Univer­sity Football Club de­feated Melville City 4-0, with the re­turn­ing Ed­die Tikoft and Carlo Chiellini scor­ing along with Nathan Smith and Dilip Thapa.

Man of the match Khaled Salah was the stand­out for the Uni side along with cap­tain Kye Mid­dle­ton and Do­minic Jak­szuk at cen­tre back.

The visi­tors looked dan­ger­ous on the break but Jak­szuk, Al­bert Bucchino and Lewis Har­vey dealt with all City through at them.

The teams went into the half-time break locked at nil-all, but in an ex­plo­sive 20 minute pe­riod the dam­age was done for Curtin.

Sal­hah show­boated his way past some hap­less Melville de­fend­ing be­fore feed­ing Smith who teed up Tikoft to fire home and give the home side the lead. Next it was Smith who would get on the score sheet with a pow­er­ful header that left Gr­guri­novic with no chance.

It got worse for the visi­tors when Chiellini made it 3-0. As the ball sat up for the play maker he struck a vi­cious, dip­ping volley from 25 yards that showed why he is rated one of the best in the league. The im­pres­sive Thapa then found him­self some space on the edge of the box to round out the scor­ing with a fine fin­ish to make it 4-0.
