SUPER SUB DUKE HITS ALL FOUR FOR DOLLYBIRDS
Aaron Duke came off the bench to score all four goals in Dollingstown's crushing defeat of Moyola Park at Mill Meadow.
The former Portadown man came on for the injured Richard Thompson midway through the first half and within a minute had opened the scoring with his first touch of the ball, a tap in, after keeper Dwayne Nelson had dropped Glen Hand's cross.
Not content with that, Duke duly doubled Dollingstown's lead around the half-hour mark. On this occasion he was teed up by Keith Johnston to beat Nelson to the ball and tuck it home from an acute angle.
That was how it stayed until just after the hour when Christopher Dowie pulled one back for Moyola, his 15th goal of the season, but two further finishes from Duke late in the game made sure of the points for the visitors.
First, on 82 minutes, he bagged his hat-trick with a rifled drive into the roof of the net from Nathan McConnell's run before, a couple of minutes later, he added number four with a header after Johnston's nitial effort came back off the bar.
