Phillips destroys Tigers



A HAT-TRICK from Gary Phillips in the first 15 minutes set the scene in Sawtell Scorpions home game against Westlawn Tigers in Sunday's North Coast Football League.

The Grafton newcomers can thank themselves lucky that the ex- National League player and coach left the field midway through the second half.

Phillips' hamstring injury prevented the Scorpions reaching double figures.

As it was they came away with a convincing 9-1 victory.

The Westlawn side must have thought Anzac day had come a day early as their players were well and truly slaughtered by a Sawtell team that hardly got out of first gear.

The only credit the Westlawn coach can take from the game was that his players did not give up the fight.

However, they will have to improve if they are going to get much from their first season in the newly formed competition.

Indeed after drawing with their fellow Grafton neighbours, Mojos 3-3 last week, it looks like competition from the North is paper thin.

The Sawtell reserves emulated their first grade with a stunning 10-0 victory.
