OLYMPIA 0

FULL TIME: South Hobart 7-0 Olympia

90+1′ GOAL! 7-0! Hamlett! He has been outstanding off the bench today and he gets his reward with a late goal. A short corner is taken, Kass crosses deep, it bounces around and falls to Hamlett who buries it.

81′ GOAL! 6-0! Jack Turner gets in on the act, Quaile bombs on and drives one which Cole parries, the rebound falls to Turner who deposits home from close range.

70′ Subs for both sides as Kass comes on for Hall and Hickey replaces Wadawu with Ortmann shifting to full back

67′ GOAL! 5-0! Hall again, given space from 25 yards he unleashes a bullet that flies past the bodies in the box and beats a diving Cole.

64′ GOAL! 4-0! Darcy Hall gets in on the act, controls it nicely after some lovely build up and fires it home. South running rampant!

SUB- Dan Brown replaced by Loic Feral, put in cotton wool ahead of next week’s NPL finals series game. Kemp slides into the centre back spot with Feral taking up the defensive midfi

62′ Shot off! Hamlett turns sharply and surges past Vandermey before smashing a shot just past the post.

55′ Shot off! Walter with some nice skill and cuts onto his right before unleashing a ferocious effort that flies narrowly over the bar.

53′ GOAL! 3-0! Game over? Morton again, he completes his hat-trick, rolls his foot over it, cuts onto his left and curls into the corner of the net!

52′ Sub- Vincent on for Nkoso.

51′ GOAL! 2-0! A lovely ball from Kemp releases Hamlett who guides an effort onto the post, Hill looks to clear but he smashes it into the leg of Morton and it deflects into the back of the net!

46′ Play back underway for the second half. Hamlett has replaced Leszczynski.

45′ Half Time! South head into the sheds a goal to the good and on the balance of play are probably good value for the lead. They’ve been playing into a pretty stiff breeze that has aided the Warriors, particularly on their two best chances that came from long bombs down the field. Pretty even affair for the most part though and still all to play for heading into the second half.

43′ Shot on! Undy with a volley from range, a long ball over the top saw the ball sit for him and he made sweet contact, drawing a fine save from Brown.

28′ Shot off! Leszczynski given some room at the top of the box and he smashes one just wide of the near post with Cole rooted to the spot.

22′ GOAL!! 1-0 South! Walter releases Quaile with a perfect ball, his cross into the six yard box picks out Morton who taps home from close range!

18′ The game settling into a bit of a holding pattern now with no real chances for either side after a frenetic first five minutes.

5′ Shot off! A long ball over the top sees Sklenar with a 1v1 chance but he volleys wide of the mark  from the top of the box, great chances for both sides in the space of 30 seconds.

4′ Shot on! Walter with a tame hit after he snuck in behind Hill and raced in on goal.

1′ Shot off! Morton is played in behind but he blazes over the top.

1′ Kick off, we’re underway
