THE Ipswich City Bulls took a giant step to avoiding relegation by holding out Pine Hills 4-3 in their latest match.

A historic hat-trick by Bulls stalwart Mark Fancourt paved the way for a much-needed Bulls win away last night.

"I had to pinch myself,'' Fancourt said of his three-goal haul.

Matt Hilli also scored after his dad passed away. The club paid a special tribute to Ralph Hilli.

 

However, the Ipswich Knights were unable to score a goal this afternoon after Western Pride lost on Friday night.

The Knights were beaten 4-0 by Mitchelton in their Brisbane Premier League clash at Bundamba after Pride went down 6-1 to Redlands United in their latest National Premier Leagues clash at Cleveland.

The Knights were unable to find the net despite lifting their attack in the second half.

Pride players showed their community spirit by visiting sick kids in Ipswich Hospital yesterday morning.
