Week nine proved anything is possible as we saw shocks, routs and drama.

CAPITAL ONE

Souths United lead the way after week nine as they picked up their sixth win of the campaign seeing off Pine Rivers 1-0. Harun Omerovic scored the lone goal right before the break.

Bayside United were on the end of another defeat this time going down 2-0 at North Star. Two second half goals were enough for Star as Jordan Maxwell and Tom Laxton helped themselves to a goal apiece.

Taringa Rovers were shocked on their visit to Atthows Park as they lost 2-0 to Centenary Stormers which was the Stormers first win of the season. Two penalties from Fedja Mehinagic were enough to ensure the Darra based club took the points.

Southside Eagles left it late to record a 2-1 triumph over near neighbours Wolves at Memorial Park. Southside opened the scoring via the penalty spot from Josh Falco in the 34th minute but that was cancelled out in the 67th as Michael Bell converted a penalty for the visitors but it was to be Southside who took the three points when Gabriel Garate Zea stole the points in injury time.

Brisbane Knights made no mistake as they routed to a 3-0 drubbing of strugglers Mount Gravatt Hawks. Knights went into oranges one to the good and continued the scoring in the second half but the Hawks weren’t helped by the dismissal of Sam Sisco three minutes into the second stanza.

Moggill’s home encounter with Grange Thistle was postponed due to lighting issues.

CAPITAL TWO

The Gap Gators unbeaten run came to an abrupt end as they were taken to the cleaners by second place Acacia Ridge 5-1 at Ron Proud Field. The defeat leaves the Gators tied on points with Ridge.

Oxley United recorded a much needed victory as they grounded out a solid 4-1 away win at New Farm to move themselves up to fourth in the ladder.

Annerley and Brisbane Force played out a cracker at Elder Oval as they drew out a 3-3 draw to claim a point apiece.

Western Spirit move up to third after they put pay to Pine Hills 3-0 at James Drysdale Reserve leaving them tied on points with the top two as the season heats up.

Park Ridge stunned Ipswich City Bulls as they put on a perfect display running out 5-1 winners to move them above their opponents and could be the catalyst in sparking some momentum.

Redcliffe PCYC found their first win of the campaign as they defeated fellow relegation candidates Slacks Creek at Usher Park.

CAPITAL THREE

Virginia United remain top after they squeezed past nearby neighbours Ridge Hills United 4-3 at Stanley Day Park.

Toowong had the edge in their affair with Mooroondu coming away 2-1 victors to stay on Virginia’s tale.

Tarragindi Tigers stay third after accounting for Jimboomba United 1-0 at Esher Street on Saturday night.

Clairvaux and Newmarket played out a six-goal thriller at the Mackillop College but it was Clairvaux who came away smelling roses picking up a 4-2 win to move into the top four.

AC Carina suffered their fourth defeat of the season as they went down 2-1 to Narangba  on Saturday evening.

Westside made sure they claimed all three points as they claimed a 2-0 success over strugglers Bardon Latrobe.

CAPITAL FOUR

Bethania Rams continue their reign at the top of the table after edging their way to a 1-0 away win over Logan City Kings.

Samford Rangers romped to a 7-0 away win at Kangaroo Point Rovers to move up to fourth in the ladder.

Deception Bay weren’t messing around on their home date with North Brisbane cruising to a 4-0 home success.

Logan Metro grabbed the bragging rights defeating Logan Village Falcons 8-1 in the derby.

Many thought this was initially a mis-print but it’s true with Steven Cleary scoring seven goals as Caboolture annihilated Greenbank 20-0.
