Late goal cruel blow for football team

WESTERN Spirit were unlucky to go down 3-2 to Moggill after the home side was awarded a free kick that produced a goal from the last play of the game.

"We didn't deserve to lose at all,'' Spirit assistant coach Chris Morrall said after the latest Capital League 1 football match at Bellbowrie.

Spirit led 2-1 after goals by striker Tom Webster before Moggill equalised and capitalised on their final chance.

Despite the disappointment, Morrall said Spirit were slowly getting their players back. Fred Kenyi and Shane Carr were among those returning on Saturday night.

"The positives were we actually played as a team,'' Morrall said. "Everyone supported everyone. We won our individual battles. It was great.

"Everyone had the confidence in each other.

"We just had bad luck on the bounce (of the ball).''

Ipswich City kept their top four hopes alive by beating New Farm United 1-0 at Sutton Park on Saturday night.

The Bulls have a catch-up match against Annerley at Sutton Park on Saturday night before playing the same team on June 15.

Spirit have this weekend off before tackling New Farm United at Kippen Park on Ipswich Cup eve.

CL1: Ipswich City 1 def New Farm United 0; Moggill 3 def Western Spirit 2 (Tom Webster).

Reserves: Western Spirit drew Moggill 2-2, New Farm def Ipswich City 3-1.
