Leoš Loos scores his second goal of the game just after the break.

Brook Street wrapped up the first half of the league campaign unbeaten with an emphatic 8-0 win over Marcascotties at New Home Park this afternoon. Coach Leoš Loos hit a hat-trick and Sam Ferretto a brace with our other goals coming from Emanuel Bohucký, Lope Cabrio and Andrew Cleary as the home team ran riot.

“We’ve done well in the first half of the season and given ourselves a real shot at the title”, claimed Leoš at the post-match press conference. “We’re three points clear and our goal difference means we’re effectively four points ahead, a terrific platform to build upon”, he added.

“We bossed the game from start to finish and indeed, Marcascotties didn’t even have a single shot on goal, such was our dominance”. He continued, “Yes, we were red hot favourites to win today, but it was more important for us to maintain momentum. I think we certainly did that today”.

“Now is not the time to rest on our laurels though, and there is still a lot of work to do between now and the end of the season”, he warned. “We’ve got to remain focussed and see the job through”.

Leoš opened the scoring in the fourteenth minute and Emanuel Bohucký doubled the lead from the penalty spot six minutes later.

Despite being in complete control, Brook Street could only add one more goal before the break, Lope Cabrio putting the ball away after a fine solo run in the thirty-ninth minute. The home fans didn’t however have long to wait for a fourth goal after the break, as Leoš put the game beyond the visitors with his second goal two minutes into the second half.

Sam Ferretto powered a header home on the hour mark to make it 5-0 as the pace of the game dropped off, but three late goals from Sam in eighty-six minutes, Leoš from a header two minutes later, before Andrew Cleary wrapped up the win in the final minute.
