FOOTBALL - Five-goal Dallas helps Moors ease past Dover

ANDREW DALLAS scored five goals in an extraordinary individual display to help Solihull Moors ease to a 5-0 win against Dover Athletic.


Dallas struck twice in the opening 10 minutes before completing his second treble in as many games on 35 minutes at the ARMCO Arena.


And the in-form striker scored again four minutes later before adding his fifth goal of the afternoon early in the second half.


The result means Solihull are now ninth in the National League table, two points outside of the play-off places.


Moors took the lead on seven minutes when Dallas nodded the ball over the line from Adam Rooney’s header back across goal.


And Dallas had his second of the game on 10 minutes when he finished past Dover goalkeeper Adam Parkes from Joe Sbarra’s delicate backheel.


The visitors had a chance to halve the deficit when Alfie Pavey’s shot was smothered by Moors keeper Ryan Boot.


Dallas completed his hat-trick on 35 minutes when he finished between the legs of Parkes after being played in-behind the Dover defence by Callum Maycock.


The day became even better for Dallas on 39 minutes when he netted his fourth of the game with a cool finish at Parkes’ near post.


And the home side picked up where they left off after the break when Dallas scored his fifth on 54 minutes when he cut inside of his man and the keeper before finishing into an empty net.


The Moors striker was replaced shortly after as Neal Ardley’s men romped to a comfortable win to reignite their play-off hopes.


Solihull are next in action against Torquay United tonight (Tuesday, January 25) with kick-off at 7.45pm at Plainmoor.
