Bulls help Spirit maintain top 3 charge
THE Ipswich City Bulls helped themselves and city neighbours Western Spirit by upsetting the competition leaders in a dramatic weekend of regional football.
Battling to stay out of the relegation zone, the Bulls beat Centenary 1-0 at Sutton Park on the same night Spirit ground out a late 2-1 away victory over Park Ridge.
The important wins gave the Bulls some much needed impetus and kept Spirit in touch with the Capital League 2 top three.
Both victories came late in the games with the giant-killing Bulls only nudging ahead in the 94th minute when Ronan Geoghegan pounced on a goal mouth rebound to score.
Spirit's win came at the same stage of the match when Damien Andison scored from a corner. That followed a Park Ridge equaliser three minutes earlier after Jay Johnson had put Spirit up 1-0 heading towards injury time.
The lower division wins came as Western Pride lost 3-0 to Brisbane Strikers in Saturday night's National Premier Leagues match at Flinders View.
The Ipswich Knights tackle Albany Creek at Bundamba in this afternoon's Brisbane Premier League match.
