Bulls shine under Friday night grand final lights
THE City League 6 decider between Ipswich City and Moggill looked headed for extra time, before late drama engulfed Sutton Park.
With the two sides locked at 1-1 as the second half wound down, the Bulls were gifted an opportunity from the penalty spot.
Michael Jones stepped over the ball and flushed it past the Moggill goalkeeper, giving the hosts an 85th-minute lead.
Four minutes later, the Bulls were reduced to 10 men after Mark Fancourt was shown red.
It made for a nervy few minutes for the Bulls, but they managed to hold on to record the City 6 premiership-championship double.
Earlier, the Bulls entered half time 1-0 down, before Mitchell Brennan restored parity just prior to the hour mark.
At the same time on the other side of Ipswich, the Knights' City League 5 side fell 2-1 to Logan City at Eric Evans Oval.
Trailing 2-0 at half time, the hosts managed to pull within one but were unable to find the crucial second goal.
The dominant Knights City League 4 men led 2-0 at half time in their grand final, only to surrender two second-half goals to the Tarragindi Tigers and then lose on penalties.
It was an equally painful loss for the Bulls City League 1 Women, who conceded a late winner to UQFC in their 2-1 defeat.
That result reversed the semi final outcome between the two sides, and ended a run of three-successive seasons claiming the premiership-championship double for the Bulls ladies.
Our junior sides had better success at the weekend, with four of the five finalists recording wins.
The Knights u15 Division 5 boys were impressive in a comprehensive 5-2 result over premiers Logan City, but the spotlight should shine on Springfield's under 14 Division 5 side.
Against a Greenbank team that averaged nearly eight goals per game this season, the Springfield boys held their opponents scoreless in an upset 3-0 result.
