Knights put out the Power as FFA Cup Round of 32 looms for Queensland clubs

Remaining clubs in Queensland are now just one more win away from the FFA Cup 2019 Round of 32 after the final Round 6 matches were completed over the last few days.

And the biggest shock came on Friday night as runaway NPL leaders Peninsula Power lost 4-2 after extra-time to the Gold Coast Knights.

In a classic Cup tie, the Power actually led 2-0 only to be pegged back in the second-half through a penalty from Sam Smith and Oskar Dillon’s bullet header.

The home side then made the most of their opportunities in extra-time with former Hyundai A-League star Mitch Nichols and defender Jaiden Walker finding the net to cap a memorable comeback from the Knights.


The Gold Coast outfit will now play Brisbane Strikers – who beat Eastern Suburbs 4-1 earlier this month - for a spot in the FFA Cup Round of 32.

Gold Coast Premier League side Surfers Paradise Apollo are also 90 minutes away from a berth on the national stage after pulling off a shock 3-1 win over NPL team Moreton Bay Jets.

Their reward for that win is a clash with another NPL heavyweight in Olympic FC.

Olympic advanced with a 4-1 drubbing of Palm Beach, with former Hyundai A-League midfielder Alex Smith as well as striker Chris Lucas amongst the scorers for the Red and Whites.


Logan Lightning and Coomera Colts will face each other in Queenslabd's final preliminary round after both winning their most recent ties 3-2.

The Lightning, who play in the Football Queensland Premier League, defeated Burleigh Heads, while the Colts edged past Holland Park Hawks.

Magpies Crusaders (4-0 over Bluebirds United) and Brothers Townsville (7-0 over Leichhardt FC) cruised to big wins to set up a winner-takes-all clash in early June.
