The third match of the night saw a revitalized Fitzroy side come up against an Ashburton outfit looking to bounce back from their loss to Pascoe Vale last week. Fitzroy’s Scott Rogan has been in incredible form of late and he was the one to open the scoring for his side as he scored from the edge of the area to put Fitzroy in front. Rogan soon doubled Fitzroy’s lead as he finished from inside the area, before Ahmad Hassani got Ashburton on the score board with a well taken finish from close range. Hassani then scored his second in as many minutes as Behrad Behzadpour teed him up to finish from the edge of the area. A handball inside from Amir Behroozi inside the the Ashburton area saw Fitzroy awarded a penalty in the last minute of the half, which Rogan put away to wrap up his first half hatrick going into the break.
The second half saw Fitzroy find another gear to pull away from Ashburton, and it started with Matthew Vragovski being teed up for a tap in for his first goal in the senior Fitzroy side. Scott Rogan then won the ball in the Ashburton half before Finding Cosimo Russo for a tap in to extend their lead to 5-2. Behzadpour pegged on back for Ashburton, but it would do little to stop Fitzroy’s momentum as Llewelyn Stone was found at the top of the area to finish a cut back to restore the lead to three goals once more. Rogan then played a ball to the back post where Alistair Dunlop slid in top poke the ball home to all but wrap up the points. To cap off a brilliant individual performance, Scott Rgoan added his fourth in some style, as he collected the ball in the left corner of the Ashburotn half before chipping the ball over Azami and in. Ahmad Hassani Would complete his hatrick in the last minute as a consolation butFitzroy would come away thoroughly deserving winners.
