Captain Phillip Randal scored a hat-trick as the Redbacks downed Italian Generation Calcio 4-1 at Brisbane's Perry Park.

Randal broke the deadlock after a tight opening 25 minutes, sliding in at the back post to tuck away a looping Richie Stockman header.

The Redbacks skipper nodded home his second a short time later before Redland tripled their lead from a pin-point Matt Lyell corner.

It was Stockman who rose above the pack to produce a powerful header, giving the Redbacks a 3-0 advantage.

The Italians found the back of the net from a free kick just before the break, reducing the half-time margin to two goals.

They missed a crucial second-half penalty before Randal stepped up again to put the result beyond doubt with a scrappy goal off a Nathan Davis free kick.

Redland controlled the remainder of the game, thwarting any opposition raids.

It was sweet redemption for the Redbacks, who went down in last year's grand final.
