A resilient Brisbane City announced themselves as genuine finals contenders with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Redlands United at Cleveland Showgrounds.

Redlands dominated the chances throughout the match but ultimately it was a stunning performance from City goalkeeper and captain Timothy Allen that proved decisive as he made a raft of crucial saves to frustrate the hosts.

The win is City’s third in a four match league unbeaten run and first ever against Redlands at Cleveland Showgrounds.

The result ends an six match unbeaten run for Redlands in all competitions but the bayside club still retain their hold on second place in the standings.


Brisbane Roar FC Youth – 1 (Joseph CHAMPNESS 37’)
Gold Coast City FC – 1 (Rhys SAUNDERS 34’)

Gold Coast City extended their unbeaten league run to nine matches after holding off a fast-finishing Brisbane Roar Youth 1-1 at Cleveland Showgrounds.

City opened accounts through Rhys Saunders shortly after the half-hour but were immediately pulled back via Joseph Champness’ equaliser.

From thereon though defenders held sway despite Young Roar dominated the chances in the second stanza.

The result continues Young Roar's unbeaten home record in 2016, while City remain on the cusp of a return to the top four for another week.


FNQ FC Heat – 2 (Darcy MCCORMACK 18', Jamie CARROLL 38')
Moreton Bay United FC – 0

FNQ Heat have moved four points clear at the top of the table with a commanding 2-0 win over Moreton Bay United at Endeavour Park.

Heat raced to a two goal half-time advantage via Darcy McCormack and Jamie Carroll – the skipper’s seventh goal of the campaign.

However, it was the back four who proved indomitable throughout the contest as with centre-halves Shimon Watanabe and Charlie Beverley repeatedly stifled Jets’ attacking outlets.

The result marks a third straight win for Heat in all competitions while Jets have now collected just six points since the end of March.


SWQ Thunder FC – 1 (Majok PIOK 5’)
Western Pride FC – 5 (Will MCFARLANE 15’, Neilen BROWN 25’, Joseph DUCKWORTH 30’ 64’, Bonventure THOMAS-REMIJO 88’)

Western Pride put paid to a four match winless run with a stunning 5-1 win over SWQ Thunder at Clive Berghofer Stadium.

Pride fell behind early as Majok Piok opened accounts for Thunder, however the visitors then delivered five unanswered goals to claim their first three points since early April.

Joseph Duckworth did the bulk of a damage with a brace for Pride, while Will McFarlane, Nielen Brown and Bonventure Thomas-Rejilo each netted their maiden goals in the national second tier to round out the result.

The win lifts Pride ahead of Thunder in the league standings with Thunder now without a point in their past four league outings.


Brisbane Strikers FC -  3 (Luke Marsh 29’ 77’, Rhys Meredith 93’)
Northern Fury FC -  0

A double to Luke Marsh saw Brisbane Strikers account for a 10-man Northern Fury 3-0 in their clash at Perry Park.

The away side were able to stifle the Strikers’ attacking rhythm throughout the first half and looked to be in the game at halftime despite being a goal down.  

However, Fury’s’ hopes of a fightback were quashed when Joshua Eden was dismissed prior to the hour – Strikers capitalising via late goals to Marsh and club leading goalscorer Rhys Meredith.

The victory extends Strikers run of form to six wins in their last seven PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues outings while Fury further their club record losing streak extends to ten straight league matches.


Sunshine Coast FC – 0
Olympic FC – 1 (Kristen WATERS 43’)

Kristen Waters scored on debut to earn Olympic FC a much-needed 1-0 win over Sunshine Coast FC at Kawana Sports Precinct.

Waters poked Olympic into the lead just prior to half-time before forming part of the rearguard which held on for Terry Kirkham’s first victory in charge.

Fire enjoyed the better of the chances in the final half hour but failed to make the most of their opportunities in slipping to a fifth defeat of the season.

Olympic’s third victory of the season sees the Yeronga side close the gap on their ninth-placed hosts to just two points.
