A great through ball from Ethan Drew two minutes before half time gave Pete Black a chance and a minute later Greg provided another assist for Ferg Wilson to grab his second of the game and give Harris a 4-0 half-time lead.
Five minutes into the second half Ferg Wilson robbed the last University defender and completed his hat-trick.Grant McInroy scored in the 44th minute when he slid in to put the ball past the keeper from a Kerno through ball. In the 48th minute it was 7-0 with Greg getting his second from a short corner drag flick high into the net.
