BOOM Savoy pair Matthew Park and Tom Youngs have combined to deliver Myrtleford a crucial 3-0 win away to Albury City on the weekend.
The former professionals both scored for the Savoys in round 18 as the visitors flexed their muscle to retain top spot on the league table.
Park who had not started for four weeks due to a shoulder complaint opened the scoring in the 36th minute with a headed effort courtesy of a Daniel Kioses cross and the lead was doubled with Youngs’ strike in the 51st.
The Englishman then put the result beyond doubt with 10 minutes to play, expertly converting a penalty after being taken down in the box.
Youngs has been in scintillating form since his return game against Boomers on July 8, where despite not scoring it was evident he was keen to make up for lost time.
The showman has scored eight goals from his past three outings to head the leagues goal scoring and put Myrtleford in the box seat for a second consecutive league title.
The race is seemingly down to three with Myrtleford (43 points) and arch-rivals Wangaratta (42) sitting ahead of Boomers (39) with four games remaining.
Myrtleford meet Albury United at Jelbart Park this week while down the road Boomers host the Red Devils in a contest with equally huge ramifications for the Savoys.
In the reserve ladies Myrtleford claimed back-to-back victories with a 5-2 victory over Albury City.
Louise Smith was the star with a first half hat-trick while Kayla Kneebone and Paige Smith also found the back of the net.
