Cobram Soccer Club claims a historic 7-2 win in local derby against Cobram Victory.April 30, 2014 3:17am
Cobram faced Victory at the weekend at Central Park in Shepparton — and what was billed as a close encounter turned into a 7-2 training session for the Tigers.
Cobram started slowly as Victory applied early pressure and to the 15-minute mark the match looked as though it would be close.
Victory had first dibs as Clark found room and fired wide.
Cobram managed to find some rhythm and a quick move along the left was crossed in low for Raco to get first touch and slot in for a lead at the 20-minute mark.
From Raco’s goal Cobram found the spark needed and took complete control.
Soon after Raco made a run along the right and poor defending left Slater free in the middle for the easiest of tap ins.
Cobram’s third saw Gatcum create room to have a strike from 25. Gatcum’s shot was poorly judged by the Victory keeper and the game was done in a 10-minute burst.
Victory managed a consolation through a corner, but Cobram continued its bombardment as Vourgalis found room and slammed another one for a 4-1 lead.
Slater then left Victory’s defenders embarrassed by slotting Cobram’s fifth in 30 minutes.
At the break some tactical changes were spoken about with discipline a key.
The second half again saw Cobram dominate as Sean Ellis was fed by Vourgalis to slot past for Cobram’s sixth.
One minute later it was Ellis who gave Gatcum his second with a sublime ball.
Cobram then rolled the changes with Raco, Vourgalis and Ellis earning a rest.
Victory managed another consolation late after a mix-up in defence but Cobram had done enough to ensure all three points were in the bag.
