PS4 NPL Queensland Review: Round 22

The top four is confirmed but the PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland Premiership title will come down to the last game of the season.

Brisbane City FC  9 (Antonio MURRAY 35’ 61’, Mat BIGGINS 38’, Koh SATAKE 48’ 55’ 90’, Ryan RODERICK 69’, Kai SMITH 75’, Nicholas BUCKLEY 84’)
SWQ Thunder FC  0

Brisbane City delivered a club record PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland win on Saturday night, dismantling SWQ Thunder 9-0 at Corporate Travel Management Stadium.

Koh Satake struck his maiden PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland hat-trick in the second-half to complement a brace to Antonio Murray and further goals to Mat Biggins, Ryan Roderick, Kai Smith and Nicholas Buckley.

The result marks a fourth win in their past five outings for City and marks the club's first clean sheet of the 2015 campaign.

It also betters their previous record win of 7-1 against CQFC Energy in the competition’s inaugural season - also recorded at home.

Moreton Bay United FC  4 (Matthew CAPELLO 27’, Stephen GREEN 37’ 40’ 45+1’)
Northern Fury FC  0

A hat-trick from Stephen Green helped Moreton Bay United edge closer to a maiden league title following a 4-0 win over Northern Fury at Wolter Park on Saturday night.

Green delivered his haul in an extraordinary eight minute blitz to close the first half, adding to Matthew Capello’s earlier opener.

The win moves Jets three points clear of PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland Premiership rivals Brisbane Strikers, who play on Sunday, and expands their goal difference advantage to seven goals.

The result also officially ends Northern Fury’s faint hopes of a first-ever Finals Series appearance and extends the club’s record of never beating Jets in six PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland meetings.

FNQ FC Heat  2 (Alex SMITH 74’, Jamie GOSLING 81’p)
Palm Beach SC  3 (Jack BOXELL 6’, Justyn MCKAY 8’, Nikola MIRKOVIC 88’)

Nikola Mirkovic struck a dramatic late winner to secure a 3-2 result over FNQ Heat at Barlow Park on Saturday night.

Sharks took a two goal lead inside ten minutes courtesy of Jack Boxell and Justyn McKay before Heat stormed back late in the contest to level terms courtesy of Alex Smith and Jamie Gosling.

However, Mirkovic responded with his second league goal of 2015 just minutes from full-time to keep Sharks Finals Series hopes alive for a further 24 hours - later extinguished by Olympic FC’s win over Western Pride on Sunday.

Sunshine Coast FC  0
Brisbane Strikers FC  5 (Greg KING 28’ , Trent CLULOW 47’, Apai UKUNO 50’ 73’,Jesse WIEMERS 90’)

The Premiership race will come down to the wire after Brisbane Strikers defeated Sunshine Coast FC 5-0 at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Sunday.

Apai Ukuno delivered a second-half brace for Strikers against their former Queensland State League rivals, complementing further goals to Greg King, Trent Clulow and Jesse Weimers.

The result moves Strikers level on points with Moreton Bay United with one match remaining for both sides. However, Jets remain top of the table due to a superior goal difference.

The match also marks the end to a disappointing 2015 campaign for Fire that will result in their lowest finish in three seasons of PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland.

Brisbane Roar Youth 2 (Abraham YANGO 9', Nicholas D'AGOSTINO 48')
Redlands United FC 1 (Jayden PRASAD 49')

Brisbane Roar Youth are back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Redlands United FC at the Cleveland Showgrounds on Saturday afternoon.

Two early goals in each half saw Young Roar's Abraham Yango and Nicholas D'Agostino bag their seventh goals of the season and hand the Red Devils their first defeat in ten matches.

The result won't change the Finals Series picture however as the Red Devils booked their spot earlier in the week, while Young Roar move into fifth with a game still to play against Palm Beach SC next Wednesday.

Olympic FC  3 (Youeil SHOL 4’ 42’, Danny BYRNE 61’)
Western Pride FC  2 (Mitchel BIRD 5’ 81’)

Olympic FC are set for a third straight PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland Finals Series appearance after defeating Western Pride 3-2 at Goodwin Park on Sunday.

Skipper Danny Byrne’s goal on the hour ultimately proved decisive for the hosts with Olympic’s Youeil Shol and Pride’s Mitchell Bird both notched braces.

The win secures Olympic a fourth place finish in the standings, meaning they will face an away Semi Final in a fortnight against the eventual PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland 2015 Premiers.

For Pride, the match marked a sixth consecutive outing without a win to close their 2015 campaign.
