Bulls boost up on ladder
NOW sitting comfortably at second place on the FQPL men’s ladder, Mareeba United Football Club dominated against Edge Hill Tigers 3nil over the weekend, in what been described by their coach as their best game yet.
Keeping the momentum going after a 3nil win during a catch up game with Leichhardt on Wednesday, the Bulls were in the zone in the lead up to their game against the number one team this season.
The catch up game boosted the team up on the ladder, finally overtaking Leichhardt, who now sits at third place.
Coach Kane Alderson said he felt confident with their performance against Edge Hill, as the team went in with a top attitude.
“After having that momentum from our game Wednesday night, we spoke about how we are going up against the ones who have already won the premiership, they hadn’t lost a game,” he said.
“Our performance against them Saturday was the best 90 minute performance and not just football wise.
“Everyone played for each other and were willing to put themselves on the line to do whatever it took to get to the 90 minute mark.”
The team will be focusing on their next game against Marlin Coast at home this weekend, in their final game of the regular season.
