Hamilton Olympic reached the top of the ladder after an emphatic win at Weston Workers this afternoon by 3-1.
Olympic hit the lead after 20 minutes of play through Jacob Bailey but just as they threatened to make it 2-0, Weston Workers managed to equalise just before the break.
Early in the second half Olympic won a penalty but Kane Goodchild was unable to convert the spot kick.
Olympic then piled on the pressure to score two wonderful headers through Kane Goodchild. Despite sustained pressure from Weston towards the later part of the game, Olympic were able to hold on to the score comfortably.
The win is the second away victory of the season and brings the club 1st spot on the table with 15 points.
Hamilton Olympic host bottom of the table Charlestown City next Sunday at Darling St Oval.
