Reserves step up to play finals
MAREEBA United Football Club’s pitch will heat up tonight as the Bulls second division men’s side host the Atherton Eagles in a FNQ Football semi-final knock out.
After finishing fourth in the league, the Mareeba Bulls second division Orange won the right to host the Tablelands Derby.
The Bulls and the Eagles both head into the match on the back of impressive wins, more notably the Atherton side who’s last start was a 3-0 win over the Bulls.
The winner of tonight’s match, kicking off at 7.30pm, will keep their season alive, with the other team being knocked out.
Bulls premier coach Alex Srhoj said he is looking forward to the game with quality sprinkled throughout on both sides.
He said the homeside will need to keep a close eye on Atherton trio Scott Rawlings, Frankie Gallo and youngster Dylan Cummings in what promises to be a frantic opening 15 minutes with both looking to get on top early.
“It’s one match I would not want to miss,” Srhoj said.
“Both sides are going to going for it, the season is on the line, there is no next week, it’s do or die.
Tonight’s match is the Mareeba club’s only home semifinal this weekend, with the Bulls reserve men’s travelling to Stratford on Sunday to take on the Leichhardt Lions in another elimination match.
