21 Aug 10 6:30PM Beenleigh v Redlands United (Chris Green Park)
It’s difficult to express in words the importance of Beenleigh’s vital win at Pine Rivers last weekend. That win saw the Lions move 2 points clear of Mt Gravatt for the final relegation place. JJ got back to the scorers sheet with one of the most crucial goals of the season. Beenleigh did ride their luck Ghana-style, when Greg Warden was sent off for a deliberate handball which stopped a certain Rivers goal. The penalty wasn’t converted and Beenleigh held on to the 3-points. Despite the victory, Beenleigh are not safe and will desperately want to repeat their victory over Redlands earlier in the season.
Redlands won a fantastic game of 2 halves against Peninsula Power where they were able to capitalise on their 2nd half performance to win (didgeridoo) 3-2. Haydn Eames and Danny Byrne have starred of late. Coach Peter Bannon will hope they can finish the year on a positive note and will hope the players stay focused after midweek exploits in the Canale Cup.
