Brockie breaks drought

Taranaki Daily News - - Sport -

A ‘‘re­lieved’’ Jeremy Brockie is hop­ing to re­dis­cover his goal-scor­ing form af­ter scor­ing his first goal in 378 days. The 31-year-old All Whites striker fi­nally scored for Mamelodi Sun­downs in a 3-1 win over Free State Stars in South Africa yes­ter­day. It was a typ­i­cal Brockie fin­ish – drilling a spec­tac­u­lar left-footed vol­ley past the goal­keeper in the 11th minute. ‘‘It’s a mas­sive weight off my shoul­ders,’’ Brockie told Stuff. ‘‘The longer you go with­out scor­ing es­pe­cially when you’re at a new club it makes life dif­fi­cult but now I can look for­ward.’’
