Kennedy’s big 10 sets new mark
NORTHERN Storm striker Jamie Kennedy is the toast of local football after notching an astonishing 10 goals in the 13-1 dismissal of Woolgoolga.
Jamie's performance is likely to have his name placed in the record books as the best of all time unless evidence emerges from the dim, dark past that another player has done better.
Coach Richard Evans saw Luke France pick up seven goals in 2014 at his former club Sawtell but says this latest achievement has a sting in the tail.
"I was still tidying up as the team took the field and seconds later heard this loud cheering," he said.
"When I got to my chair, they told me Woolgoolga had scored in the first few seconds and I'm starting to think we could be in for one of those days.
"What happened next, nobody could have expected and I just sat there watching goal after goal going in for us with Jamie going on the attack."
Ironically, Woopi's regular goalkeeper Cadan Glattback had opted for a run in the outfield and had been the one to raise the cheers of Wolves supporters with the opening strike.
Watching later developments, perhaps Cadan felt it was his lucky day that he had not been chosen to face the thundering feet of the Thunder coming at him from all points of the compass.
