THE Northern Storm put on a master-class at Plantain road on Sunday to charge their way towards a 5-0 win against Orara Valley.

There were three goals in the first 20 minutes which had the Dingoes on the back foot early on.

While Orara attempted to look more threatening at the start of the second half, two Korora goals later on brought the curtain down on a miserable afternoon for the Orara team.

Orara Coach, Adam Wood conceded that the title race was over and was focusing on rebuilding the team after an ordinary showing this year.

"The last two games for us are pretty important. I think ill rest or drop a few players in the next two weeks to somewhat get ready for next year," Woods said.

"We're no chance of making the four. So I've basically got to try to rebuild for next year, if it means bringing in young blokes, well…so be it," he said.

Woods admitted that his side had been let down by consistent defensive concerns throughout the campaign.

"The first half killed us I think. I was doing stats the other day and noticed that in the last seven games, we've conceded goals in the first five minutes," he said.

"I don't have any clear-cut defenders and I'm bringing in blokes from reserve grade. It's no excuse, but I've got defenders out left right and centre".

Storm coach, Jade Porter was happy with his team's performance and suggested that 2013 will be his last year at the helm of Korora and downplayed who would be taking over come next year.

"That's what we are going for (the minor premiership). That's what the top three are going for be a big battle for it," Porter said.

"We've got Coffs United in the final game, so we are ready for the challenge and it'll be a great one to watch," he said.

"I'm leaving at the end of the year. It's a pretty demanding position and I'd like to spend time with the family.

"I don't know at the moment who'll be taking over," he said.
