Saturday scoreboard – 22 August 2015

Plenty on the line with Premierships being decided as well as finals and promotion spots up for grabs. Here’s a recap of what’s taken place.

NPL QUEENSLAND

Seven second-half goals provided Brisbane City players with a perfect audition in front of incoming coach John Kosmina, inflicting SWQ Thunder’s heaviest loss this season with City coming away 9-0 winners.

All the goals came in the first half as Moreton Bay extended their advantage in the Premiership race while ending the Nortern Fury’s finals hope in a 4-0 win at Wolter Park. A hat-trick to Stephen Green and Matt Capelo goal making up the Jets’ tally.

It wouldn’t be a FNQ Heat home game if there wasn’t a late resurgence from the hosts. Palm Beach had two goals inside the first ten minutes to Jack Boxell and Justyn McKay for a 2-0 halftime lead. David DeLucchio pulled one back for the Heat midway through the second half with Jamie Gosling converting a penalty to bring the match back on level terms but the Sharks kept their finals hopes alive when Nik Mirkovic struck home in the 87th minute. Final result, FNQ Heat 2 v Palm Beach 3

So those matches have the following ramifications:

  • Moreton Bay move three points clear of the Strikers on the top of the table with the Strikers to play Sunshine Coast Fire tomorrow.
  • Redlands look likely to finish third.
  • If Olympic defeat Western Pride tomorrow, they will claim more than likely finish fourth. Otherwise Palm Beach are the only other side that can claim a place in the finals.
  • After their loss, Northern Fury depart the finals race.

BRISBANE PREMIER LEAGUE

Wolves with a 96th minute penalty conversion have potentially staved off relegation in a 2-2 draw against Logan Lightning.

UQFC’s hopes to avoid relegation got off to a good start as they scored first against Peninsula Power but it didn’t work out in the end as Peninsula ended up 4-2 winners.

Mitchelton confirmed third position after a 0-0 draw with Albany Creek.

Rochedale ended their season on the best possible note after a 2-1 away defeat of Ipswich Knights.

Capalaba defeated the Premiers Lions 2-0 who rested players in anticipation of their FFA Cup clash on Wednesday night.

So that means the first week of finals in two weekends time will be:

Major semi-final (non-elimination – 1 v 2)

Lions v Easts

Minor semi-final (elimination – 3 v 4)

Mitchelton v Peninsula

The other thing to keep an eye out on is the Club Championship table which determines relegation. Coming into this round, UQFC had a ten point advantage on Wolves as those two clubs battle it out to avoid the second relegation spot.

UQFC won their reserves match this evening but lost their first team match. That takes them to 247 points with nine points on offer tomorrow in their under 16’s and under 18’s matches. Those are the last remaining matches for UQ to claim points for the Championship.

Wolves lost their under 16’s and under 18’s matches on Friday night, won their reserves match this afternoon and claimed a draw in their first team match. That takes them to 242 points. Wolves have 18 points on offer in under 16’s, 18’s and reserves catch-up matches next weekend against Rochedale so it looks like the race will come right down to the line.
