Forfar Boys ran out 10-2 winners in the Diamond Jubilee Cup final against Ferry Athletic. Striker Dominik Naglik found the net four times in what was a rampant display from a Forfar side that has now completed the first part of a potential quadruple this season.
Forfar got the game off to the perfect start, opening the scoring after just two minutes. Dagan Bell’s corner kick was headed home by Kieran Kelly from close range.
Ferry were shell-shocked by the early goal, and fell further behind two minutes later. Dominik Naglik’s free kick from the left wing flew into the top corner of the Ferry goal.
A Naglik free kick brought about Forfar’s third goal of the match after just eight minutes. The striker’s effort brought a save out of Daniel Clark in the Ferry goal, but the ball fell for Ethan Murray, who volleyed the ball past the helpless keeper from close range.
Ferry’s first effort came courtesy of Harrison Taylor, who volleyed over from a corner. Despite trailing 3-0, Ferry hadn’t done much wrong and were rewarded for their efforts after 14 minutes.
Owen Boath picked out Taylor following a surging run, and his shot deflected into the path of Jay Lawson, who turned the ball home from close range.
Ferry had played their way back into the game and nearly added a second goal after 18 minutes. Boath managed to race away from the Forfar defence, but saw his effort pushed away by goalkeeper Kyle Shand. The Forfar keeper hadn’t had much to do, but this was a fine save.
There was nothing the keeper could do two minutes later, as Boath grabbed Ferry’s second goal. Lawson with the clever flick to release his strike partner, who made no mistake as he slotted the ball into the net.
Despite their slow start, Ferry were now back in the match, and just seconds after their second goal, the sixth goal of the game was scored, but it was scored by Forfar. Bell’s cross catching out the Ferry keeper Clark, as the ball flew into the net.
This was a tough one to take for Ferry, who conceded a fifth five minutes later. Naglik getting his second of the match with a low drive from the top of the box that nestled in the bottom corner of the net.
