Storm blows past Orara

THE Northern Storm have bagged their first points of the season thanks to a 2-0 victory over Orara Valley.

The scoreline could've been even greater if it wasn't for the Korora team wasting opportunities in front of goal and more importantly a sterling performance in front of goals by Dingoes' goalkeeper Josh Harrigan.

Storm forwards Luke Venn and Jamie Kennedy were causing chaos as the Moss brothers and 16-year-old Frank La Spada dominated the midfield to supply the front pair with plenty of possession.

For all the good work that they did, it still took the Korora crew half an hour to see their labour rewarded on the scoreboard after Paul Moss finally managed to get one past Harrigan.

The score remained 1-0 at the break but it could very easily have been different had a thunderbolt from Orara's Dylan Louden found the target.

At the break Orara coach Jason Snell pleaded for more commitment from his players and Storm coach Rob Harbour begged for more accuracy at half-time.

The second half was a carbon copy of the first with all the play at the Orara end and Harrigan earning his money.

With so many chances going begging the Storm faithful were on edge and simply couldn't believe the missed opportunities.

Harbour brought on Brett Lacey and within minutes he had Harrigan tipping a very good volley over the bar.

It didn't take long after that though before a second goal was scored as Lacey squeezed one past Harrigan to put the game out of the Dingoes' reach.

Snell was thankful at the small scoreline and admitted it could have been anything. He was quick to add though that he can't wait to have a full Orara squad to choose from.
