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.
