Round three of the Brisbane Capital Leagues threw up plenty of goals, feisty encounters including one that saw five red cards dished out. Here’s some of the talking points out of the weekend.

CAPITAL ONE

Taringa Rovers top the table after a third successive win defeating Bayside 2-0 at Don Randall Oval. Rovers opened the scoring in the thirty-ninth minute via the penalty spot from Omar Hamid and the score was rounded out in the fifty-fourth as Jason Harrigan made sure Taringa move on to nine points and yet to concede this season in the process.

Wolves FC put their loss at Taringa last week behind them accounting for Mount Gravatt at Carmichael Park 4-1. In a tight first half, the Wolves led 1-0 but in the second stanza it was one way traffic as the Wynnum based club raced on to hand out Mount Gravatt’s third successive loss.

Moggill claimed their second league win in a row this time sprinting to a 4-2 home victory over Centenary Stormers. Moggill were 4-0 up at the break via a goal from Mark Robertson and a hat-trick from Charlie Spencer. The Stormers put on an early second half recovery pegging two back from Saviour Jansuk and Fedja Mehinagic but it wasn’t enough as they fall to their third defeat on the spin.

North Star came back from the dead to earn a vital draw at home to Brisbane Knights at O’Callaghan Park. A penalty from Jay Reid and an own goal ensured Knights went in at the break up 2-0. North Star put on a great second half effort pulling it back to 2-2. The draw earns Knights their first point of the year whilst Star move on to four points.

Grange Thistle and Pine Rivers’s encounter will have to wait after their match was postponed with the field at Lanham Park still under maintenance.
