Beachside moved back into third place on the Division One ladder when they scored a comfortable 4-0 home win over fifth-placed Northern Suburbs DOSA at Sandown Park today.

DOSA, who trailed 3-0 at the interval, fought hard and restricted the home side to just one goal in the second half.

Jayden Hey, a 15-year-old defender, had a fine senior debut for DOSA and he almost scored with an excellent shot in the second half that was turned wide for a corner.

Andrew Douglas opened Beachside’s account when he got the last touch to a cross in the 14th minute.

Bernhard Klasen made it 2-0 on the half-hour with a penalty, awarded for a push by a defender inside the box after a corner.

Klasen added the third in the 39th minute with a fierce shot that went in off the far post.

Klasen completed his hat-trick from close range 12 minutes from the end when Patrick Bigg’s shot struck the crossbar and the DOSA defence failed to clear.

Klasen, Bigg, Nathan Robinson and Colin Wain all had good chances in the second half as DOSA refused to buckle under intense pressure.

Is Jayden Hey the son of Chris Hey most recently former coach of the Knights?
