First season loss for Bulls

THE Mareeba Bulls Division 1 Mens suffered a defeat at the end of Leichhardt for the first regular game of the season on Saturday Night, going down 4-1.

It was a one-sided game with the visitors keeping a stranglehold on the Bulls until after halftime, remaining 3-0 until the Bulls managed to fire one back. 

It was too little too late as Leichhardt slotted another goal and sealed the deal for the Bulls before the fulltime whistle. 

Coach Kane Alderton boiled the game down to a single difference, Leichhardt came to play while the Bulls didn’t. 

“Leichhardt turned up to play and we didn’t, they wanted it more,” he said. 

“Having beat them a couple of weeks previously they wanted revenge and they come up for the game, we just didn’t show up on the night. 

“They pretty much dominated the whole game, we found it pretty hard to get back into it. 

The men will now play off against Edge Hill tomorrow in the district final of the FFA Cup to decide who will play the winner of the Townsville competition.
