The Tasmanian Institute of Sport beat Glenorchy Knights reserves 4-0 at Prince of Wales Bay this afternoon.
Jesse Curran hit a hat-trick, including a penalty, while Hugh Foley grabbed the fourth goal.
Foley also hit the bar, while Harrison Thomas put a clear chance over the bar as the TIS - also known as the National Training centre Tasmania - dominated the match.
Knights’ senior team assistant coach, Anthony Grundy, played as a defender.
A select XI will be chosen from both sides in this match to play against the visiting Melbourne Knights senior side at KGV Park tomorrow [Sunday] at 4pm.
Players who stood out from the TIS included hat-trick man Curran, the Foley brothers, Hugh and Declan, and left-winger Alex Nandan.
Nandan created one of the goals for Curran and caused the Knights endless problems down the left flank
The game had originally been scheduled as the curtain-raiser to the Melbourne Knights versus Glenorchy Knights match at KGV Park today [that game kicks off at 6pm], but the Glenorchy City Council only allowed one game at KGV park today so it was switched to Prince of Wales Bay at 2pm.
