Bulls charge over league premiers
THE Mareeba Bulls premier men’s side have remained in place for finals contention after they won 2-1 against premiers Edge Hill in a do-or-die match on Saturday.
Coming up against the team to beat this season, Mareeba looked comfortable and slotted in two goals both sides of halftime before the visitors answered back with 25 minutes to go.
Mareeba’s defenders knuckled down to keep Edge Hill from breaking through again and secured Mareeba’s win.
Coach Kane Alderton was very proud of how the boys played but they cannot let up just yet as they edge closer to a final’s appearance.
“It was a do-or-die match for us, a win for them would have won them a premiership and a win for us keeps us in contention – it was a big game for both teams,” he said.
“Our boys stood up and dug deep, it should give the boys a confidence boost.
“This weekend’s game is another must win, we have to win to be in finals contention – we cannot take a backwards step.”
The premier men’s will be facing off against the Southside Comets away with only a handful of games left before the finals.
The premier ladies were not so lucky on Friday night when they hosted Edge Hill in Mareeba, going down 3-0.
Despite this the ladies remain solid in their third-place position and still in contention for the finals, they now have a bye this weekend before they host Innisfail United at home.
