Strikers and Lions march on in Queensland

Two of Queensland's Round of 32 entrants from last year have set up a date to determine which one will qualify for the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 in 2016.

Strikers advance past plucky Eagles

Brisbane Strikers are within one match of a third straight Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 berth after ousting Southside Eagles 2-0 at Memorial Park.

Two goals at either end of the match bookended the victory and ensure a Preliminary Round 7 date with Lions FC.

Rhys Meredith gave the visitors the lead inside two minutes but Strikers struggled to put Eagles away despite a steady string of chances.

The deciding goal finally arrived in the 89th minute when first half substitute Felli Sheriff pounced on a deflected free kick from Jake Mclean to end the home side’s resistance.

Football the winner as Lions go through

The scoreline may not have been flattering for the home side but football was the big winner as Lions FC moved into the final game of the Westfield FFA Cup Brisbane Zone qualifiers with a 7-0 win over Moggill FC at Bellbowrie Sports Club on Wednesday evening.

Nathan Shepherd, Michael Butters and Kenya Takahashi all scored from close range in the first half as Lions asserted their dominance despite not having a full squad available.

After the break, Shoheel Khan and Tynan Diaz added to the visitors’ total but it was the performance of new signing Sekou Jomanday that caught the eye. A double on debut is a handy return but it was the second goal, a dribbling effort past the keeper and defender, which confirmed he will fit in nicely at Richlands.

A massive crowd turned out and ringed the fenceless ground. Every opportunity to score by the Geckos, particularly one chance from Sam Chesterfield which was spectacularly saved by Phil Zabaks, was greeted with a huge roar. It was a shame they never managed to find the net because it would have been deafening outcome.

Lions FC and Brisbane Strikers, who both reached the Round of 32 last year, will now meet for the chance to fill one of the Queensland's four slots and feature in the Final Rounds once again. Details of the match will be released in due course.
