South Hobart did the double over New Town Eagles in two friendlies at Wellesley Park this afternoon.

In the reserves, South Hobart beat Eagles 6-0.

Jim Pennicott netted twice, as did Felix, while Andy King and Jai David grabbed a goal apiece.

In the seniors, South Hobart won 7-0 after leading 5-0 at the break.

Jonathon Lo scored twice and David Abbott, Kostas Kanakaris, Hugh Ludford, Colin Wain and Andy King once each.

New Town Eagles coach George Krambousanos said he had several key players missing, including Nathan Pitchford, Nick Ferrall and Jacob Malakoff.

But, Krambousanos was making no excuses.

“At least we played another Premier League side and the champions at that,” said Krambousanos.

“It was a good learning experience for us and South fielded virtually their strongest side.”

South Hobart coach, Ken Morton, said he was pleased with his team’s performance.

“Eagles had 30 players and they showed potential and I think they’ll improve on last season,” Morton said.
