Devils in top four

Wangaratta City thrashes Boomers 5-1 to climb up to association’s upper echelon

AGILE: Stefan Joseph heads home a cross against Boomers.

WANGARATTA City returned to the winner’s list on Sunday, eclipsing fellow finals aspirant Boomers FC 5-1 at South Wangaratta and moving into the top four for the first time in a number of years.

In the final round of action before the Albury/Wodonga Football Association breaks for the Queen’s Birthday, the Red Devils were determined to get three points.

And with Stefan Joseph scoring a double in the second half, Wangaratta City was able to see off every Boomers’ challenge.

Wangaratta co-coach Mario Antonello said the win was crucial for his side and added they could move higher after the break.

“Definitely very happy to get the win we were,” he said.

“Both us and Boomers were on the same points heading into the game so to get the win was probably worth two.

“We skip clear of them now and we’re in equal fourth.

“If results go our way after the bye we could slot into third.”
