Jack­son hat-trick seals win

Comment News (Armadale) - - Wafl -

A HAT-TRICK from an in-form Chris Jack­son helped Armadale to a 3-1 win over Joon­dalup United on a wet Satur­day af­ter­noon.

It took just eight min­utes for Jack­son to find the back of the net on the back of a big save from Joon­dalup keeper James Bos­det, who mo­men­tar­ily stopped the ball go­ing past him be­fore the Armadale striker nudged an easy tap-in.

A header in the 18th minute made it 2-0 be­fore a de­fen­sive mis­take in the 59th minute gifted Jack­son num­ber three.

Joon­dalup man­aged to pull one back in the 78th minute with a back-heel goal from Jamie Gib­son.

Jack­son now has 12 goals from 12 games and has only fin­ished score­less in two games.

Armadale coach John O’Reilly said the team could have done bet­ter, but he was pleased with the win.

“It’s a good re­sult. I would have loved a more pol­ished per­for­mance but I’ll take that re­sult,” he said.

“It’s al­ways go­ing to be a scrappy game against Joon­dalup. They put up a fight right till the end.”

Af­ter 14 rounds, Armadale sits eighth on the lad­der with five wins and four draws.

It next hosts 11th-placed For­rest­field United from 7pm on June 2 at Al­fred Skeet Re­serve.
