RAFF Molinaro has given Wangaratta City selectors plenty of reasons why he should remain in the senior team after slotting a stunning hat-trick in the Red Devils’ 5-2 win against Wodonga Diamonds on Sunday.
The talented youngster played the first two games of the season in the reserves before strong form and a couple of injuries opened the door for him to play seniors.
And he didn’t take long to show his ability, slotting the first goal of the game after just three minutes before completing his hat-trick with the final two goals in the second half.
“It’s exactly what you want from our players,” he said.
“Raff got his chance and certainly made the most of his opportunities.
“We had a couple of injuries and Raff has been best on for the ressies in the first couple of games so he was always going to get his chance this week and we started him up front.
