Last-second decider gives Bulls a draw
THE Mareeba Bulls premier men’s side managed to secure a last second draw against the Innisfail Cutters during their game over the weekend and keep a hold of their second-place spot.
It was a nail-biting finish for the Bulls after they started off rocky and let Innisfail break the ice first.
The Bulls headed into half-time with Innisfail leading 2-1 and the game looked to be falling the visitors way before a last second goal secured the tie.
Despite having nearly seven players out due to injury or other commitments, the Bulls have managed to hold onto their second-place spot and are just a few wins away from Edge Hill who reign in first.
“The draw wasn’t the best result for us in terms of the premiership race but we are still sitting second,” coach Kane Alderton said.
“Edge Hill are at least two or three wins away, we really need to rely on them losing games and us to keep winning games.”
The Bulls will now place host to Southside Comets on Sunday afternoon with the premier men’s set to kick off at 5pm.
