Forfar Boys found the net six times as they blew away Duloch Juniors in the final of the inaugural East Region Cup. First half goals from Dominik Naglik and Liam Ballie put Forfar in control of the tie, with Jack Muir adding a third just after the restart. Christopher Clifton found the net for Duloch, but a quickfire double from substitute Jack Soutar ended any chance of a comeback, with Dagan Bell adding a sixth goal late on.
It was Forfar that started the game on the front foot. Both Dominik Naglik and Jack Muir brought saves out of Duloch goalkeeper Gordon Crawford McNicol Saulnier.
Naglik’s blistering pace in behind was causing problems for Duloch, and the Forfar forward would have opened the scoring after 11 minutes if not for a fine piece of defending from Scott Hadden. Naglik managed to round Saulnier, but his touch let him down and Hadden managed to blast the ball away to safety.
With 18 minutes gone, Forfar’s pressure told as Naglik opened the scoring. A long ball sent the striker in behind the Duloch defence, and he drilled a low shot from a tight angle past Saulnier.
Forfar wouldn’t have to wait long for a second goal, as Naglik turned provider for Liam Baillie after 21 minutes. Naglik slipped the ball through for Baillie, who saw his powerful effort saved by Saulnier, but the ball rolled over the line, doubling Forfar’s advantage.
Duloch were struggling to get a foothold in the game, while Forfar were making it clear why they are still unbeaten this season. Dagan Bell, nearly added a third after 31 minutes as his low corner kick came back off the post. Bell nearly set up a third goal moments before the break, but Naglik turned his cross over the bar from three yards out.
