Brisbane Capital Leagues Wrap – 17-19 April

The Capital Leagues were up to their old tricks again this weekend, throwing up seven goal thrillers, arm wrestles and outstanding strikes, here’s our look back at all the action.

CAPITAL LEAGUE 1

North Pine continue their fine form, really stamping their authority on the division as they claim their fourth straight win and stretch their lead to four points at the top of the table after a 3-1 win at Holland Park on Saturday. The Gorillas fired themselves into an early lead when Samuel Heaney put home in the sixth minute and went into the break with that advantage. Holland Park came out fighting in the second half and found the net through Dean Le Petit but that joy was short lived when Heaney added his and North Pine’s second and then just five minutes later Wayne Heath rounded out the win to ensure the Gorillas make it six out of seven.

 

Mount Gravatt recorded a 2-0 victory over strugglers Brisbane Force at CJ Greenfield Reserve on Friday night, both goals coming in the second half courtesy of Brett Hay and Daniel Morcus as the Hawks move up to fourth and put the midweek cup defeat quickly behind them. As for Force they languish at the foot of the table and will need a miracle to avoid relegation for the second successive season.

 

Bayside got back to winning ways after last week’s horror show at Rocklea, seeing off Grange Thistle by just the one goal. Bayside opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Lee Parker found the net as they keep the pressure up on table topping North Pine.

 

Pine Rivers won the tussle at Memorial Park seeing off Southside Eagles by the odd goal in a 2-1 victory. Rivers broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute through Martyn Freestone before Stephen Cannon doubled the advantage twenty minutes later. Southside didn’t throw in the towel and grabbed one back in stoppage time through former Brisbane Force midfielder Ethan McCoy but it turned out to be all too late.

 

Goals from Lukas Kljajic and Alexander Hairsine either side of halftime were enough for Brisbane Knights to see off a struggling North Star outfit who seem to be finding life hard after their drop down into Brisbane’s second tier. The win for the Knights is their second on the spin and the momentum continued after the 6-1 thumping of promotion contenders Bayside last week.

 

Moggill and Annerley played out an absolute arm wrestle in a Sunday night blockbuster out at the Bellbowrie Sports Ground with Moggill emerging as 4-3 victors. Moggill took the lead in the third minute to the delight of the home crowd but Annerley hit back with a double and found themselves in front in the 38th minute. The home side managed to grab one back before the break to go into oranges at 2-2. Moggill went back in front in the 56th minute but just 13 minutes later the visitors levelled setting up a grandstand finish. Both teams gave it their all throughout but it was to be Moggill who secured all three scoring in the 77th minute in a game that saw Callan Spence score a hat trick.
