The star striker's class shone through in what was the Lino show. Olympic's defenders will have nightmares for weeks, knowing they have to deal with his raw speed and technical ability throughout the season.
Hellenic pounced before Olympic could blink. The opener came from Lino in the second minute. The lanky forward brought the ball down with his chest and beat Olympic's defence with his strength. With a delicate touch, he gave himself room to strike it with his left foot, past Hellenic goalkeeper Kane Mcadam.
With the Olympic defence in shambles, Lino made two busts down the left flank in the space of as many minutes. The first he cut inside, but his shot was saved by Olympic keeper Kane Mcadam. The second, Lino found himself in even more space. He passed the ball back into the box, landing it perfectly at Paddy Mcguire's feet, but from point blank range he was unable to convert. The ball shot over the crossbar.
Hellenic's attack would not relent inside the opening 20 minutes. Jesse Pinto found possession in the box. He was brought down by Alexander Turner and referee Ryan Prescott had no hesitation in awarding the penalty.
Lino stepped up and sent Mcadam the wrong way, coolly slotting in the right hand corner. Olympic showed heart to keep themselves in the match. They made it 2-1 after Foday Mansaray found the ball with miles of room on the left hand side. The winger had too much pace for the Hellenic defence and took goalkeeper Nicholas Boubaris on, one on one.
He dummied to shoot; making Boubaris fall to the ground, and then calmly chipped it over him in a classy finish.
The goal brought life back into Olympic's play. For the next five minutes they held possession inside the blue and white's half.
However, the pressure didn't amount on the scoreboard and Lino punished up the other end. He scored his third on the break on 35 minutes.
Olympic's Dane Turner stuck home from distance when the red and white's won possession in a good area. However, his sweet strike was covered by an outstretched hand of Boubaris.
Lino's pace continued to catch Olympic out. This time he whizzed down the right flank, past Daniel Bulman. Another cool finish saw his fourth net in the left corner.
Only a minute later skipper Jesse Pinto laid a ball beautifully to Lino who again netted on the stroke of half time.
Olympic held their opposition for most of the second half. That was until the ball was crossed into the box to substitute Manoli Maragos who whizzed it into the net to make it six.
