Clinton trounces Nerimbera 8-1 CQPL Division One competition

SOCCER: Clinton FC put on a dominant goal-scoring display 8-1 against northern rival Nerimbera in the Central Queensland Premier League Division One competition.

Clinton striker Mitch Innocend delivered a hat-trick of goals to set up a good win.

Clinton assistant coach Dan Horton was satisfied with the win but saw there was still some work to do.

"The win could have a been a bit better with a good pass mark,” Horton said.

"(I'm) really happy with the chances created by the team.”

Clinton came out strong from the start and kept up the pressure on the Nerimbera defenders.

Captain Chris Hill scored two and was unlucky not to nail a hat-trick.

"A win's a win and the team also worked on a couple of things,” Horton said.

"Josh Noonan was man of the match and helped to set the game up for the side.

"A score like that is a good indicator from the top sides.”

There was a lapse in defence when Nerimbera scored its only goal, sneaking past the Clinton defenders to score.

Clinton's next game is at home, a top-of-the-table clash against Frenchville FC to be played at Clinton Park, 7pm.

The CQPL minor premiership will be on the line in what will be an exciting match.

Central FC was defeated away against Capricorn Coast FC 2-0 at Apex Park.

The next game for Central FC is against Nerimbera at Sun Valley Oval at 7pm and a good win will help it secure fourth position on the ladder.
