Goats just get better with flawless performance

GLADSTONE Goats continued their rich vein of form on Saturday with a flawless performance against the Capricorn Coast Crocs.

Goats' five-eighth David West dominated the match against an undermanned Caps at Meteors Park, with the Goats winning 62-0.

West's lines, agility and speed with the ball would have been the highlights of the match, if they weren't overshadowed by his passing.

Halfway through the second half, West received the ball and fired a 35m pass onto the chest of a charging Sione Tongia.

Outside-centre, Tongia had a day out himself, running in four tries.

The five-eighth was permitted time and space off the back of great work from the Goats' forward pack.

Open-side flanker Leon Gray terrorised the Crocs at the breakdowns and with forward Ants Patali, continued to pilfer the ball.

Crocs' captain Jason Solis was stoic under the constant pressure, a great example of when to seize an opportunity to win the ball back.

Crocs' coach Glen Dodds said the performance from his team was more than respectable.

"Against the top-of-the-table team we knew it was going to be tough," he said.

"The score didn't reflect the effort."

Goats coach Kenny Dobson said it was a great result and now his side sits 15 points clear on top of the ladder.

"We continued to improve the whole match and finished really strong," he said.

"The clear outs got a lot cleaner and then there was a bit of class at the end."
