Hume City powered to its third win in a row, with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Port Melbourne at ABD Stadium on Saturday night.
Tom Cahill would finally get his first start in a Hume City shirt, after receiving his Australian residency midweek.
The game started in an entertaining fashion, with both sides holding good spells of possession in an effort to create an early chance on goal.
It would be Hume who would take the early lead in the 29th minute, with Kym Harris netting his fourth goal in three games.
Harris muscled his way to meet a Theo Markelis corner kick, heading home emphatically to give the home side an early lead.
One became two soon shortly after when Nick Hegarty’s corner evaded everyone and found its way into the back of the net to double Hume’s advantage.
Port would push for a way back into the contest and were rewarded for its efforts in the 58th minute when Jamie De Abreu’s well hit strike bounced off the post and in, to peg Hume’s lead back to just the one goal.
However Hume would virtually put the game to bed in the 74th minute when Kofi Danning bursted down the right and unselfishly laid the ball back to Theo Markelis who finished into an empty net.
Hume would score its fourth goal and round of the scoring in the 87th minute, Tom Cahill beating his defender, striding into the penalty area and squaring the ball back to Nick Hegarty who finished expertly to seal his brace, and a big win for Hume City.
Hume City: 4 (Harris 29, Hegarty 34′, 87′, Markelis 74′) defeated Port Melbourne: 1 (Abreu 58′) at ABD Stadium.
