Rain has interrupted the 5th week of the National Premier Leagues Queensland with only 3 games going ahead.

South East Queensland experienced torrential rain leading up to the weekend ruling out all Brisbane games.

FNQFC Heat took on the SWQ Thunder in sunny Toowoomba on Saturday afternoon. The Cairns outfit came away from the lengthy round trip with the three points and a huge boost to their goal difference with a 6-0 thumping.

The fledgling Thunder put up valiant resistance in the first half going to the break only a goal down. Unfortunately for the local fans the second half saw both Jamie Gosling and Christopher O-Hare securing braces for the Heat.

To add salt to the wounds Ajak Lueth saw red for his mistimed challenge late in the game.

Sunshine Coast Fire hosted the Roar Youth side at Kawana on Sunday afternoon. The second half saw the Fire rally to finally break down the youthful roar-s defence after a cagey first half.

Jayke Cuschieri and Futa Nakamura both contributed to the scoreboard; Nakamura bagging his second goal in as many games.

Sunshine Coast are building momentum as they climb the table after recording their third win in a row.

The Brisbane Strikers travelled to Townsville to take on the Northern Fury in the final game of the truncated round.

Townsville turned on the sunshine and the Fury turned on the goals, maintain their unbeaten home record dismantling the Strikers defence after just 17 minutes through James Brennan.

Braedyn Crowley added to the scoreboard after half an hour to take the fury to the break 2 goals up. Crowley converted a spot kick in the second half to raise his season tally to 6, while substitute Jani Peut got on the score sheet late on.

Strikers are sitting in 8th spot after suffering their second defeat of the campaign. Royce Brownlie is still clear atop the golden boot tally with 7 goals in 4 matches for Moreton Bay Jets.

The Malaysian Under 23-s, Harimau Muda ‘A- had the weekend off to relax with the newly implemented bye before they take on 7th place Olympic in Round 6.

Round 6 also sees The Brisbane Strikers take on Brisbane City in the Local Sunday afternoon derby, while second placed Redlands make the trek up to Cairns to take on the Heat.

Washed out games in the round have had to be rescheduled for later on in the season.
