Sharks rediscover bite against Wolves

SUTHERLAND Sharks finally overturned its rotten run of results with an emphatic 4-0 defeat of South Coast Wolves at home on Saturday evening.

The Sharks put together its best showing of the season to seal the points, and keep track with the top-five in a morale-boosting performance in chilly conditions at Seymour Shaw Park, Miranda.

The Sharks produced their most impressive display of the season in putting four unanswered goals past a luckless, undermanned South Coast Wolves.

Matt Bailey opened the scoring for the hosts in the first-half before Panni Nikas doubled their advantage shortly after the restart.

Mark Picciolini's dismissal along with Cam Littler's injury with no remaining substitutes available meant Wolves were forced to finish with nine men, extinguishing any chance of a comeback before late goals to Bailey and captain Nick Stavroulakis put the icing on the cake for Sutherland.

It was Bailey who produced a well-taken looping header early in the game, before Panni Nikas produced a powerful drive into the back of the net after turning Jacob Timpano.

Picciolini's dismissal for the Wolves came at an awful time with coach Trevor Morgan already having used all three substitutions at his disposal.

Bailey claimed his double with an easy finish following Nikas' impressive build-up play, before Stavroulakis rounded out the result with a fine finish from the edge of the penalty-area, in injury-time.

¦ Round 11 saw the Rockdale City Suns' match against Parramatta FC postponed to a later date.
