EASTERN'S Ross Greer was the master of the skies at Mongkok Stadium yesterday as he led his side to a 3-0 demolition of Kitchee in the Viceroy Cup quarter-finals. The 26-year-old Australian not only scored twice, including a superb, soaring header to break the deadlock, but also cut off Kitchee's supply line to their six-foot five-inch striker Damian Webber at set-pieces. Webber, signed on loan from English minor league club Crawley, towered above everyone on the field but the six-foot one-inch Greer was head and shoulders above everyone when and where it mattered. As Greer took his season's goal tally to 10, Eastern extended their unbeaten run to 18 games, 17 of which have been won. There was never any doubt Eastern would win yesterday once Greer had opened the scoring in the 33rd minute. When right-winger Lee Kin-wo's corner was not cleared and the ball ballooned into the air, the athletic Greer rose above the crowd to head home. Furious Kitchee players chased after the Scottish referee, Alistair Knox, claiming goalkeeper Chung Ho-yin had been impeded. One of them, sweeper Yau Kin-wai, went too far, grabbing the referee and spinning him round - and Knox had no option but to send him off. A goal down, Kitchee were now a man down, too, and there was no way back against an Eastern side who had looked distinctly anxious in the opening exchanges. But it still took Eastern until the 71st minute to finish off Kitchee, Greer pouncing from close range to knock in his second when goalkeeper Chung deflected a shot into his path after a sweeping break. Paul Nixon, scorer of a hat-trick in Eastern's 5-0 win over British Forces in the first round, added the third in injury time to take his season's tally to 15, two behind strike-partner Dale Tempest. Speaking about his first goal, Greer said: ''I did not touch the goalkeeper; I was nowhere near him. If the Kitchee players thought someone else had impeded him, that was for the referee to decide. ''We were well worth our win. They resorted to hitting the big man up front and we tried to play football.'' Kitchee's other debutant, Mark Barham, showed enough on the left side of midfield to earn the offer of a contract to the end of the season. Sing Tao, meanwhile, are to give a month's trial to teenage central defender Craig Rorke, from Perth. Rorke is taking a month's unpaid leave from his job with a shipping agency to try and win a contract as a professional and is expected to arrive in Hongkong today.
