PS4 NPL Queensland Round 4 Review

FNQ Heat remain the only undefeated club in the league in Queensland after Round 4, while the rest of the table remains congested.

Highlights -


SWQ Thunder FC  2 (Mustafa JAFARI 13’, Majok PIOK 90’p)
Redlands United FC  1 (Michael Lee 30’)

Match Report -

A dramatic late penalty from Majok Piok has seen SWQ Thunder edge Redlands United at Clive Berghofer Stadium.

The decisive strike sees Thunder's 2016 renaissance gather pace and lifts the Toowoomba-based club into third on the league table.

The result extends Thunder's best ever return in a PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues season - with 18 rounds still to be played.

It also marks a second straight defeat for Redlands, who drop out of the top four for the first time this season.


Moreton Bay United FC  1 (Scott STEWART 51’)
Brisbane Strikers FC  3 (Rhys MEREDITH 19’, own goal 40’, Shaun CARLOS 63’)

Match Report -

Brisbane Strikers ended Moreton Bay United’s 12-month unbeaten home record – and secured their first three points of 2016 - following their win at Wolter Park.

The win provides Strikers supporter’s some solace for last year’s Grand Final defeat at the same venue, but 

Despite the result Jets still remain second in the league standings heading into the Easter break, while Strikers move back into the top half of the table for the first time since the opening round.


Brisbane City FC  1 (Motoki KAKEHI 27’)
Sunshine Coast FC  0

Match Report -

A maiden PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues goal to Motoki Kakehi secured Brisbane City their third straight win – seeing off Sunshine Coast FC at Corporate Travel Management Stadium.

Left-sided attacker Kakehi threatened throughout the contest but delivered the decisive blow midway through the first half.

Fire’s night ended on a sour note when Kobe Fuller was sent off with five minutes remaining to put paid to hopes of salvaging a point late.

The result lifts City into third on the table - their highest position so far in 2016 - and also marks the side’s first clean sheet of the season.


Northern Fury FC  1 (Joseph THORNTON 58’)
Western Pride FC  3 (Corey LUCAS 32’, Joseph DUCKWORTH 52’, Geoffrey MACINTYRE 62’)

Match Report -

Western Pride recorded their first three points of 2016 after downing Northern Fury at Townsville Sports Reserve.

Corey Lucas added to his growing reputation as a set-piece specialist to give the visitors a single goal advantage at half-time, before Joseph Duckworth and Geoffrey MacIntyre sealed the win with further goals in the second stanza.

The result consigns Fury to a fourth straight defeat to open the 2016 season – their worst ever start to the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues.


FNQ FC Heat  1 (Jamie CARROLL 73’
Gold Coast City FC  1 (Jarrod KYLE 68’)

Match Report –

FNQ Heat remain top of the table heading into the Easter break despite being held to a draw by Gold Coast City at Barlow Park.

The result leaves Heat as the only undefeated side in the competition after four rounds and with a one point advantage atop the standings.

It also sees City retain their hold on fifth place and extends their unbeaten run to three games.\


Olympic FC  1 (Abel FESSEHA 90+1’)
Brisbane Roar FC Youth  4 (Nicholas D’AGOSTINO 32’ 52’ 63’, Joseph CHAMPNESS 78’)

Match Report –

Nicholas D’Agostino netted a hat-trick as Brisbane Roar Youth easily accounted for Olympic FC for their first win of the 2016 season.

There was only scant consolation for the hosts despite scoring late via Abel Fesseha – the result marking a second straight defeat and seeing the traditional league powerhouse languishing second from last on the table.

The result also sees Young Roar move to seventh in the table, sandwiched between Gold Coast City and Brisbane Strikers on goal difference.
