Bulls in finals mix after comfortable home victories

THE Ipswich City Bulls kept their finals hopes alive in Capital League 2 and Reserve grade after comfortable wins at Sutton Park on Saturday night.

The top side won 4-0, having must-win games against Newmarket and Kangaroo Point to have any chance of securing a top four spot for the finals.

The Bulls Reserves outclassed Oxley United 8-0 to strengthen their finals prospects.

"The Reggies are well and truly in it and we're still there," head coach Nev O'Sullivan said. "All we can do is win our last two games and see what pans out."

O'Sullivan was most impressed with City's fourth goal on Saturday night, a fine team effort finished off by captain Shaun Kitching.

Jamie Beahan scored a hat-trick for the Reserve grade side.

In other Capital League 2 games on Saturday night, Western Spirit's Reserves won 1-0 before the top side lost by the same margin.

Spirit's teams are left building for next season.

"We want to keep the young players engaged," co-coach Josh Walton said.

"We've got the squad there with the young boys. We'll need next year to get a bit more senior players in there just to get a bit more quality."

  • In yesterday's Brisbane Premier League match, the Lions overran Ipswich Knights 6-0. Knights captain Igor Sao Jose copped a nasty knock on his knee, adding to his team's misfortune.
