With everyone refreshed from the Easter break, football returned to Brisbane as the Capital Leagues stepped up for their next round of action in what was an action packed weekend, from surprises to arm wrestles, it had it all.


North Pine top Capital One after a narrow win over Moggill at Bob Brock Park on Saturday night. The Gorillas opened the scoring in the second period via Samuel Heaney and despite a late Moggill surge it wasn’t enough and Pine now have five wins out of six and have impressively only conceded one goal all season.

Bayside headed to Rocklea as favourites for their clash with the Brisbane Knights but the Rocklea based club defied all odds to run out emphatic 6-1 winners to record one of the shocks of the Capital League One season so far. Knights were in dreamland as they raced into a four goal first half lead and they didn’t take their foot of the gas inflicting more distress on their Bayside opponents sticking in another two in the second period as they move up to ninth.

Grange Thistle and Mount Gravatt took a point each as they drew out a keenly contested battle at Dittmer Park. Grange Thistle found themselves in front when Mitchell Robinson put home midway through the first half. Mount Gravatt pressed for the equaliser and got it in the 66th minute when Brett Hay scored for the second game running to ensure the Hawks took a point.

Holland Park took Brisbane Force to the cleaners on their visit to CJ Greenfield Reserve on Friday night running out impressive 7-0 winners over a side that haven’t got a point to their name and a minus twenty goal difference. Holland Park were intent on getting the opener as the peppered early shots but the deadlock was broken on the 13th minute before adding another three before the halftime whistle. Hawks found the net three more times in the second half to record a 7-0 win in a game that saw Matthew McNab score a hat trick.

Pine Rivers edged out North Star at Wendy Allison Park on Saturday evening in an action packed first half. Rivers took the lead after ten minutes but North Star made sure they were in the contest levelling not long after. Rivers managed to find the net on the half an hour mark and held on until the end to move themselves up the ladder to sixth.

Annerley scored late to rescue a point on Friday night at Elder Oval where Southside Eagles were the visitors. The Eagles grabbed the lead in the fifth minute through a deflected effort from Gabirel Garate Zea. Annerley dominated for large parts of the match and Russell Mapri’s side were rewarded for their efforts in the 77th minute when Jaymes O’Brien struck to level the proceedings as both teams take a point each.
