Bulls find some grunt to renew bid for top-four sport
THE Ipswich City Bulls breathed new life into their bid for a top- four spot by beating Park Ridge 6-3 on Saturday night.
However, the Capital League 2 team needed a backline reshuffle after the Fancourt brothers Mark and Richard withdrew due to illness. Chris Heidler and Luke Slater filled their roles with debutant Heidler scoring.
After leading 2-1 at the break, the Bulls played better football in the second half at Hubner Park.
Attacking midfielder Ben Robson and regular goalscorer Zygan Condie each netted a double.
"That was a pretty good performance,'' coach Nev O'Sullivan said.
However, the Bulls Reserves had an uncharacteristic poor showing in losing 3-0.
Western Spirit's Capital League 1 side lost 8-0 to Pine Rivers United.
Spirit's improving Reserve grade side lost 2-0 at Kippen Park.
The Reserves side has been bolstered by Ipswich Grammar trio Corey Lucas, Andrew Jarrett and Aaron Montoro.
