Scorpions beat Storm 3-1 in mid-week catch up game

The Sawtell Scorpions have earnt a much-needed win in their mid-week catch up game against the Northern Storm at Toormina Oval.
The Scorpions produced their best performance of the season so far, snapping a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 win against the Storm.

The Storm opened the scoring early on a wet Tuesday night in the fourth minute of their Coastal Premier League match.

Conceding an early goal seemed to spark the Scorpions into action, as they started to gain the ascendancy creating numerous chances by solid through balls and their pure pace.

The Scorpions struggled to find the equaliser despite constant shots on goal, before their weight of chances paid dividends with former A-League player Troy Hearfield scoring just before half-time after tapping in a cross from a corner kick.

Most of the match was played in the Scorpions forward half as their crisp passing and speed towards goal had the Storm on the back foot.

The Scorpions continued their relentless attack into the second half, with Hugo Alderman giving his side the lead shortly after half-time following up on a Storm save.

There were some nervous moments for Sawtell as the Storm pressed hard for an equaliser.

But it would be the Scorpions night as Duncan Couper sealed the match late in the second half drilling in a beautiful through ball for the 3-1 win.
