Red Devils advance to next round after defeating Bayside Argonauts

BALLARAT Red Devils have advanced to the next round of the Football Federation Victoria Dockerty Cup after demolishing Bayside Argonauts 5-0 at Truganina on Tuesday night.

In their first official match after Saturday’s NPLV season opener was abandoned, the Reds came out firing to dispatch their lower ranked opponents in convincing fashion.

With goals to Liam Harding, Steve Thomson, Bolish Salvatore, Pat Karras and Harley Bosher, the Reds were never in trouble in the dominant display.

The next match for Ballarat will prove much harder however, coming up against fellow NPLV competitors Green Gully, which includes former Red Devils import Sean Harding, brother of current player Liam Harding.

It will be played at Knights Stadium on Saturday at 3.30pm.
