A capacity crowd had the car park overflowing at Monbulk Rangers Soccer Club on Friday night to see the home team demolish Mooroolbark FC and hold its position at the top of the table in FV State League 2 South East.
An opening goal to MRSC’s Alex Brooke was answered by the Barkers with the teams going into the half time break 1-1.
In the second half, Monbulk striker Steve McRae ran onto a cross from Geordie Scott to put the ball into the net and himself into the goal post.
McRae rounded his evening off with a second goal from outside the penalty box to make it a 3-1 victory to the home side.
McRae is leading Monbulk’s goal scorers on seven for the season, with the club locked level with Boroondara FC on top of the ladder.
It was a similar story in the men’s reserves with Monbulk taking the honours 3-0 against Mooroolbark, with goals to Paton Filardi, Jamie Oxley and Keenan McClean.
