Coming in with strength and determination, the team dominated Redlynch in the first half, working with each other to ensure a strong win. 

Coach Kane Alderton said by half time, the Bulls were already up 3 nil, a testimony to their determination to work on their mentality during the game. 

“This week was definitely better… we didn’t start the best in the second half but we snapped out of it a little quicker and saw heaps of improvements,” he said. 

“We were close to that 90 minute performance and with a few big weeks up ahead we’re really going to make sure those performances are coming up.”

The Bulls already have a guaranteed spot in the semi-finals, however Alderton said the team have to give their all in the next two rounds to ensure their spot. 

Next week the Bulls will play Leichardt at home in the inaugural Moriconi Bomben Soccer Cup. 

The tournament was organised to honour the remarkable contributions of Alfio Moriconi and John Bomben, who are widely regarded as the “godfathers of football” in the Far North region and will be a celebration of their football legacy and an homage to their dedication to the sport. 

The event aims to ensure that the impact of these two passionate Italian immigrants on the football scene in Far North Queensland is never forgotten.
