Fulluck strikes again to have Fire glowing

At just 17, you could understand why Jacob Fulluck is being utilised mainly off the bench at the Sunshine Coast Fire but such is the excitement surrounding the striker, he is all but commanding a starting berth.

Fulluck was at it again at Bokarina yesterday, scoring his fifth goal in the Fire's sixth game of this National Premier Leagues Queensland season.

Barely minutes after coming on in the second half, he raced towards the box and shot past strewn Sharks custodian Ryan Meskell to seal a significant 3-1 triumph over last year's champions.

"He must wonder what he's got to do to get a start but if he keeps doing that when he comes on he won't be too far off," player/coach Paul Arnison said.

"I had him last year (in the Fire's youth side) and I know what he can do. I know he can score goals so if we can give him the service, the boy will do that.

"His chances are coming. He's only young, he's learning and he's being patient.

"He's one for the future definitely."

Fulluck's goal was impressive, but it was somewhat outshone by two pieces of brilliance yesterday, when the Fire snared its third win, which should have it move to within the top six of the 12-team competition.

The first was a startling opening goal from captain Reyze Kelly, who beat two close defenders before firing past the keeper, following a precise through-ball from Arnison.

The second was a stirring save from Fire keeper Dale Hill.

With the hosts leading 2-1 in the second half - following goals to Sharks Josh Riis and a second goal to Kelly - Hill denied key man Justin McKay from the spot, following a handball from defender Rhys Roberts.

The save brought cheers from the crowd.

Then Fulluck confirmed the result with his swift goal.

Japanese recruits Takuma Kinoshita and Kenya Takahashi were particularly strong for the Fire, which will meet Redlands in Brisbane next weekend.

OLYMPIC Women fought from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw against Sunshine Coast Women at Sunshine Coast Stadium yesterday.

The hosts were on track for their third win of the season before two quick-fire goals in the second half extended Olympic's unbeaten run to three matches.
