South Hobart easily accounted for Beachside at Olinda Grove yesterday, beating the Premier League newcomers 6-0.

Beachside may have been somewhat unfortunate in not earning a penalty, and the final goal looked off-side, but they were well beaten by the league champions.

Jonathon Lo continued his impressive pre-season form by scoring twice.

Korean import Kwon Jun played in central midfield and scored one goal, with the others coming from Andy Brennan, Kostas Kanakaris and Shae Hickey.

Brennan opened the scoring early when he picked up a wayward pass from David Abbott and fired past Michael Soszynski.
