South Hobart have secured the PlayStation 4 NPL Tasmania 2017 League Title with a 5-0 win over the Kingborough Lions at Darcy Street.
South Hobart secure 2017 league title
The win puts South Hobart 12 points clear on top of the table with just 3 rounds remaining. It was also the club’s 12th consecutive league victory this season, a streak that dates all the way back to Round 7 and is a league record for the longest streak in NPL history, eclipsing Devonport’s mark of 11 consecutive wins achieved in 2016.
Today’s result was never in doubt as they completely dominated the Lions from start to finish in what was an absolute clinic. Nick Morton scored twice in the opening 20 minutes as the Champions put on a show for their home crowd. Their passing and slick ball movement was a cut above as they dismantled the Lions in emphatic fashion. Adam Gorrie was a star down the right whilst Kobe Kemp bossed the midfield.
It didn’t take long for South to get started, Morton getting on the end of an intelligent back heel from Darcy Hall and firing home to make it 1-0 before doubling the lead five minutes later when he volleyed home from an inch perfect Adam Gorrie cross.
The Gorrie and Kemp combination down the right was absolutely unstoppable, two hands woulnd’t have been enough to count the amount of times Kemp released him and the overlapping Gorrie got on the end of a pass to send in a cross as the Lions were completely under siege.
