The Capital Leagues threw up its usual servings of goals, goals, goals and lots of thrills and spills making for another entertaining weekend across the divisions. Here is how it all panned out.
Taringa Rovers top the tree in Capital One after claiming their fourth win on the bounce this time beating promotion hopefuls Grange Thistle 4-1 in Thistle’s first defeat of the season. In a tight first half Taringa edged it 2-1 at oranges and continued the scoring in the second period eventually running out victors.
Wolves FC and Souths United had a share of the spoils at Carmichael Park in an end to end frenzy. Souths dominated the early excursions and got their reward midway through the first stanza as Harun Omerovic fired home to give them the lead and not long after they had the ball in the net again but this time it was struck off for offside. Wolves came out fighting in the second half and bagged just three minutes into it as Ajdin Salihovic bundled the ball over the line and that was to be the end of the scoring as the game ended 1-1.
Bayside United grounded out a 2-1 away day success at lowly Mount Gravatt Hawks on Saturday evening at Dittmer Park. The Hawks were reduced to ten men in the third minute but that didn’t stop them taking the lead, Bradeck Jasch the scorer on eleven minutes. Bayside fought back and levelled on the half-hour mark through Marc Brocklehurst and in the second period Brocklehurst notched his and Bayside’s second to record a much needed win.
Pine Rivers United came from behind to steal all three points from Moggill at the Bellbowrie Sports Ground. Moggill took the lead right before half time via Thomas Webster but Cameron Scott levelled for the visitors just five minutes after the restart. Webster found his second in the fifty-seventh minute but that was cancelled out in the seventy-second by Scott as it was his turn to earn a brace but he went one better notching his third and Rivers third in the eighty-sixth minute to claim a 3-2 win.
