After an eventful start to round three last week, this week threw up some equally intriguing encounters.

The tie of the round came to an early end when the floodlights failed just ten minutes in to the eagerly awaited Holland Park v Lions clash.

Lions had gone into an early lead within the first minute when Andre Bonotto let fly from a good thirty yards into the left hand corner but unfortunately for him and his team, the goal won’t officially count as the game will have to be replayed.

After a six goal thriller at the Bellbowrie Sports Ground on Sunday which saw Moggill surrender a three goal lead with just minutes remaining, Cup action saw the amber and black celebrating as they came from behind to defeat Premier League side Logan.

Logan got out to a two goal lead after ten minutes against their Capital One opponents but Moggill pegged one back just four minutes later to leave the game in the balance going into half time.

The home side came out strong and levelled proceedings just minutes into the second half. The home crowd were sent into raptures midway through the second period when Moggill took the lead for the first time in the match and to complete the cup upset rounded off a fourth deep into stoppage time to dump Logan out of the cup at the third round stage.

Mitchelton demolished Capital Two Souths to follow up on their 3-1 win over the Wolves in the league at the weekend. The Mustangs started out slowly but did find themselves 2-0 up at halftime and in the second half went into overdrive scoring a further five goals to round out a score of 7-1.

Brighton Bulldogs will be the lowest ranked side in the round four draw, from Capital Four and made it there with a 4-1 convincing home win over fellow Cap 4 side Bardon Latrobe which saw them score two goals either side of the break.

Mount Gravatt saw off Capital Three outfit, New Farm at Dittmer Park but were made to work when Paul Pienbanco put the inner city club in front just two minutes into the affair. The Hawks battled back, Liam Hussey grabbing a 19th minute equaliser before Jeremy Gamez put the Hawks into the lead which they held on to until full-time to book their place in round four.

Ipswich Knights had a tricky away trip up to Progress Park to take on Capital Two’s Redcliffe PCYC and avoided a potential banana skin, romping home to a 5-2 win to progress into the next round.

Pine Rivers travelled to Capital Three Samford looking to put behind them their loss at the weekend away at Mount Gravatt and they did just that destroying the Rangers 8-0 at the Parklands in a game that saw them race to a 4-0 halftime lead.

Peninsula Power managed to get over the line when they saw off Brisbane Force by three goals to one at CJ Greenfield Reserve but the Capital One outfit pushed them all the way.

Power found themselves one goal to the good when Steven Cleary grabbed his first FFA Cup goal of the season but in the 20th minute Force were awarded a penalty, Adamson stepped up and missed but converted the rebound.

The game stayed one-all until the 81st minute when Dane Forsyth put the Kippa-Ring based club in the lead and that lead was extended in the 90th minute to round out a 3-1 win.

Rochedale saw off Grange Thistle at Lanham Park to book their place in round four, winning 3-0. Rovers went in at the break on level terms after an even first half but they ran out in the second period notching up three goals to claim back to back wins after a league win over Easts at the weekend.

Park Ridge travelled North for the second round running but they had a much tougher task this time taking on the current Capital League One leaders in North Pine. North Pine jumped into a two goal lead after ten minutes on the clock and as the game evened out a goalkeeping error let Park Ridge in to make the game 2-1. The Gorilla’s raced up the other end and were 3-1 up soon after.

Park Ridge gave themselves some hope just before halftime when they converted a header from a corner but Pine restored their two goal lead just after the break after a defensive mix up.

North Pine went 5-2 up midway through the second half and continued to create chances but it was the Panthers who scored the eighth and final goal in the 85th minute as the Capital One outfit came away 5-3 winners.
