Thanks to our friends at Gorilla Sports, let’s catch you up on what’s taken place in an afternoon and evening that became a nightmare for tipsters.
Redlands have defied pre-season form to bag a 2-1 win away against Gold Coast City. Kai Halliday and Stephen Green scored for Redlands while Gold Coast City scored from an own goal. Gold Coast’s cause was not helped by the dismissal of Drew Jeskey.
SWQ Thunder have recorded their inaugural win after a 44 match run without a win. Goals midway through the first half to recruits Majok Piok and Mustafa Jafari for the Thunder. A anxious five last five minutes for Thunder supporters with Charles Staley scoring for the Fury to make life interesting. Match report – http://bit.ly/1n3ROhi
Jesse Daley’s goal for the Roar was quickly cancelled out by Rhys Meredith for the Strikers as the two Perry Park based sides fought out a 1-1 draw.
Moreton Bay have spoiled John Kosmina’s debut as Brisbane City coach with the reigning Premiers coming away 3-1 winners. Joi Masuda, Royce Brownlie and Alex Janovsky all the scoresheet for the Jets with City collected an own goal.
Western Pride and Sunshine Coast Fire played out a 1-1 draw. Koshimizu’s strike for the Fire was replied to by Lucas for the Pride from the penalty spot. Pride forced to play with ten men when defender Joel Haack was sent off ten minutes into the second half.
