Two mid-week matches in PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland delivered a big impact on the race for the Premiership and the Finals Series.
Moreton Bay United FC 4 (Scott STEWART 35’, Charles MENDY 53’, Stephen GREEN 83’, Chom AROP ’86)
Brisbane Roar FC Youth 1 (Stephen O’NEILL 68’)
Moreton Bay United are once again front-runners for the Premiership after downing Brisbane Roar Youth 4-1 at Wolter Park on Wednesday night.
Defender Scott Stewart opened accounts for the hosts late in the opening stanza before second-half goals to Charles Mendy, Stephen Green and Cham Arop sealed the win for the Jets.
The result sees Jets edge ahead of PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland Premiership rivals Brisbane Strikers on goal difference, with two matches remaining for both sides in the home-and-away season.
Speaking post-match, Jets coach Adam Piddick explained that his side’s work-rate had pleased him as much as the three-goal margin.
“The last month or so we’ve been working up to that but things just haven’t gone our way. Today it all clicked for us and we’re probably a little bit unlucky not to get a couple more,” Piddick said.

Palm Beach SC 0
Western Pride FC 0
Palm Beach SC’s a top four finish suffered a severe blow after battling to a 0-0 draw with a wasteful Western Pride on Wednesday night at Mallawa Complex.
Despite Pride seeing the bulk of the chances throughout the contest, wayward finishing saw the visitors unable to put paid to a winless run that now extends to five matches.
The result marks a first ever PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland clean sheet for Pride goalkeeper Williams in only his third start, and a fifth clean sheet for Sharks’ gloveman Shane Viitakangas this season.
It also leaves Sharks’ PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland Finals Series hopes hanging by a thread and reliant on fourth-placed Olympic FC dropping points at home this weekend.Full match report from Football Queensland - http://bit.ly/1MCT3ip
