Molloy hat-trick seals Madrid Cup for Spurs

Molloy’s trio of goals were all superb individual efforts and his performance was the difference between the two sides.

The Lerwick side dominated the first half and were deservedly 2-0 ahead at the break. 

But Scalloway rallied in the second half and carried more threat in front of goal. They were also disappointed not to be awarded a penalty despite having a couple of decent appeals.

Molloy’s third goal, the best of the bunch, was enough to seal the win for Spurs.
