FALCONS 2000 continued its relentless attack on the Gippsland Soccer League championship with a 5-0 win over Traralgon City at Latrobe City Sports Stadium on Sunday.
League leading goal scorer Jesse Kennedy led the way with a hat-trick, taking his season tally to an astonishing 38 from 16 matches, and preserved his remarkable record of scoring in every appearance this season.
After a tough win against Newborough Yallourn United last week, the Birds took a while to get going, but when they did it was to devastating effect as Kennedy opened the scoring from close range.
Kennedy scored his second after great link up play with player coach Nick D’Alessandro, and he completed his hat-trick before half-time.
After the break Falcons continued to dominate the match and added two more goals through D’Alessandro and Isaac Abas to run out 5-0 winners, keeping their four-point buffer at the top of the table in tact.
This week is Derby Day away to Fortuna in a match that Falcons will look to amend their only blemish this year, a 2-2 draw at home with the Orangemen in April.
OLYMPIANS snatched an important 2-1 victory on the road to Monash, preserving fifth place on the competition ladder.
The visitor led 1-0 at the break and claimed all three points despite Ty Christy getting one back for the Wolves.
A hat-trick from winger Brandon Scott helped Newborough Yallourn United demolish East Gippsland United 7-0 at Burrage Reserve.
Scott relegated regular spearhead Dylan Fairbrother to a deputy role, with the latter netting a brace.
Adam and Andrew Batt added the icing with a goal each.
