Player Coach Dennis Allen rallied his troops before the match reminding them of the heartbreak from the previous week, something they didn’t want to feel again. 

The boys responded well with Steven Cater and Damien Wildman scoring a brace each with Wildman picking up this year’s top goal scorers award again, proving how valuable he is to the Bulls’ line up. 

Cater played to his usual high standard with his experience and contribution playing an important role in the overall makeup of the team. 

The Bulls celebrated well into the night and painted Townsville orange to mark their success. 

In other matches played in Townsville the Innisfail under 12’s went down 2-1 to Rebels, the under 13/14’s and Colts both lost 2-1 to Brothers. 

Leichardt Ladies premier reserves lost 1-0 to Ingham; men’s 3rd Division also lost 1-0 to Wulguru. Douglas Dragons lost 4-3 to Estates in the men’s 2nd Division while Marlin Coast Rangers went down 3-1 to Rebels.

In the Premier Ladies Edge Hill United defeated Brothers 5-4 while the Premier men’s Edge Hill United made History by defeating Saints Eagles Souths 2-1 after coming from a goal down.
