PS4 NPL QLD Round 6 catch up

Round 6 of PlayStation 4 NPL has been completed following a host of catch up matches played midweek after being initially postponed because of storms.

Gold Coast City Stretch Unbeaten Run

Redlands United and Gold Coast City have played out a tense 1-1 draw at Cleveland Showgrounds on Tuesday night.

Following a goalless first half, the second opened up, with the first goal falling to Redlands’ Alex Warrilow who connected with a perfect Feli Sheriff cross.

City pressed hard soon after and were rewarded when Sam Smith netted the equaliser with a stunning volley from outside the box.

Neither side were able to break the deadlock in the remaining minutes, meaning City continue their unbeaten run since round two.

Redlands will play Moreton Bay away next weekend, while City travel to Townsville to play Northern Fury.

Strikers crush Fire

Brisbane Strikers fell just short of double digits against Sunshine Coast FC on Tuesday night, leaving Perry Park with an emphatic 9-0 win. 

Seven Strikers players got in on the goalscoring fun, with Michael Lee the lone player to score a double. 

Lee and Jake McLean were in lockstep all evening as the Strikers duo combined to tear the Fire defence apart. 

Strikers were up 3-0 inside 30 minutes and never looked back to pick up a third win of the season, as well as a healthy goal difference boost.

Strikers are at home again this weekend, hosting SWQ Thunder. Fire will attempt to pick up the pieces back on the Sunshine Coast, against Brisbane Roar Youth.

Brisbane City win thriller

A late winner from substitute Simon Biel gave Brisbane City a 3-2 victory over Brisbane Roar Youth in a hugely entertaining encounter at Corporate Travel Management Stadium on Tuesday night.

Young Roar took a first half lead through Emlyn Wellsmore who headed home from a corner, before handing the initiative straight back to their hosts with an own goal moments later.

But the Roar bounced back, taking a 2-1 lead into halftime thanks to a well worked goal from Oliver Duncan in the 32nd minute.

Both sides created plenty of opportunities in the second half but it was City who struck first when Sam Sibatuara created space for himself in the penalty area, firing home inside the far post.

City continued to press hard for a winner, with Carter Glockner and substitute Simon Biel spurning a number of chances before Biel’s late intervention and composed finish gave City all three points.

City now face a short turn around ahead of a Friday night derby with Olympic at Goodwin Park, while the Young Roar travel to the Sunshine Coast on Sunday afternoon.

Jets-Pride too close to call

Moreton Bay United and Western Pride cancelled each other out at Wolter Park on Tuesday night, with the two sides settling for a 0-0 draw. 

The home side came close to taking the lead inside 10 minutes but Jesse Rigby's excellent tackle denied Stephen Green and kept the scores level.

Moreton Bay would have moved second with a win but a second clean sheet is a decent consolation prize. 

Pride are now undefeated in three games as Graham Harvey's team look to improve on last season's 10th-placed finish.

Both teams will be at home this weekend, with Moreton Bay welcoming Redlands United and Western Pride hosting FNQ Heat.
