Loza hits five in resounding victoryJAMAR Loza scored five goals in a clinical display of finishing to help Norwich City's Under-21s to a superb 7-2 win over Southampton.
Dmitri Halajko reflected on a convincing victory that saw City win back-to-back games for the first time this season, as Cameron King bagged a brace in an emphatic victory.
"The finishing was very enjoyable. We were very clinical tonight, we put together some outstanding goals," he told Norwich City TV.
"Sometimes when you have young players on the pitch, you get games like that where the momentum sways and you get goals in quick succession.
"In the second half we had a lot more control of the game, and had that cutting edge to go with it."
Ryan Seager put the visitors ahead early on as he beat Russell Martin to the ball before firing past Kean, but a remarkable first half spell yielded four goals in fifteen minutes for the young Canaries.
King met Arinse Uade's cross to nod home the equaliser, before a stunning second from midfielder put the Canaries in front as he hit a powerful effort beyond Harry Isted.
Loza then netted twice in quick succession, linking up well with frontman Kyle Lafferty, as a clinical City side put Southampton to the sword.
An error from Jake Kean allowed Seager to roll the ball into an empty net with 65 minutes gone, but it would be Loza who stole the show as he netted a further three times in the last 10 minutes to secure a memorable victory.
