MANDURAH City extended their lead at the top of the WA State League with an 11-1 thrashing of Swan Utd at Hyundai Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
City outclassed their opponents in every facet of the game but Swan we’re forced to play much of the tie with 10 men after their keeper was harshly sent off after ten minutes.
Jordan Rhodes grabbed two, as did Craig Tone as City went into the break leading 5-0, with the other coming from Abi Tcuono.
Rhodes completed his hat trick soon after the interval and Tone did likewise when he was brought down in the penalty area and duly converted the spot kick.
Three penalties were awarded in all to the home side, who dominated the game and extended their lead at the top to four points over rivals Ashfield and Joondalup.
Coach Doug Hesketh brought both Rhodes and Tone off after their three-goal performances but the goals kept coming.
An own goal added another before defender Simon Bell, in for the suspended Ollie Mcghee, scored a brace and Luke Johnstone came off the bench to round off some super approach play from John Brookes.
New Brazilian signing Santos also made a good impression from the bench as City added much needed goals to their stats, something that could stand them in good stead come the end of the season.
“This side has goals galore in it and we knew one day we would hit someone for six,” said a delighted president Pete Rowe.
“We now go to Bunbury on Saturday full of confidence hoping to pick up another three points.”
