Bill Turner Cup Final

BTC Qld final







Ipswich Grammar 4 (Zane Williams 4m; Guiliano Maraconato 22m; Harrison Maynard 50m; Murray Thistlethwaite 59m) beat Palm Beach Currumbin State High 1 (Jackson Bray 3m).

Four top shelf strikes, all from different players, secured Ipswich Grammar’s first tilt at the national finals – to be played in the City of Lake Macquarie on Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 September.

Palm Beach Currumbin struck in the third minute through Jackson Bray but Ipswich Grammar replied almost immediately to equalise and from there the goals were one sided.

The match, however, was far from a one sided affair although the score board says otherwise.

Ipswich Grammar’s Director of Football Mark Fancourt shared his thoughts after the game – here’s the interview – have a listen

Cavendish Road State High 2 (Carly Banks Munnings 28m; 33m) beat St Peter Claver College 0.

Cavendish Road are off to the national finals next month with their 2-0 win over St Peter Claver – Carly Banks Munnings double securing passage to the coveted Trophy finale.

Clinical goals either side of the break secured a well earned victory over a quality St Peter Claver outfit.

Cavendish Road coach Fatima Flores is the first to play and then later coach a team in the national finals – her post match interview – enjoy her thoughts

Chancellor College 3 (Terone Wattegedarac 4m; Taj Suffolk 25m, 34m) drew with Burdekin Catholic High 3 (Noah Licciardello 20m; Jesse Thomasson 28m; Keiran Ackerman 38m).

Both sides started the game with the intent to attack – end result six well constructed goals – the draw a fitting result.

Chancellor opened the scoring, Burdekin replied and so the scoring went as they traded goals and the entertainment for the spectators and officials alike.

BTT Qld 3rd







Kirwan State High 3 (Taniesha Weston 16m; India Kubin 19m; Emily Ohl 53m) beat Chancellor College 2 (Lily Peck 39m, 45m).

A match played in the true spirit of the game with Kirwan’s strength across the park overshadowing Chancellor’s never-die resolve.

Kirwan jumped out to a 2-0 first half lead before Chancellor fought back with two well deserved, and taken, second half replies by Lily Peck.

Diminutive Emily Ohl proved to be the difference taking the winner for Kirwan but take nothing away from Chancellor’s keeper Sorrell Phillips who kept her side in the game with several top class saves.

On Tuesday 4 August the top four boys and top four girls teams from Queensland played-off for the right to contest the Queensland Finals and ultimately earn passage to the National Bill Turner Cup and Bill Turner Trophy Finals Series to be staged in the City of Lake Macquarie in the first week of September.

All four matches were played in good spirit with some quality football on display.

In the Trophy St Peter Claver were well served by Camila Falaniko Ah Ki who scored in the third minute of the 2-0 win over Chancellor. Camila’s outstanding midfield efforts ensured the tempo of the game, along with direction, was maintained throughout.

Cavendish Road’s Carly Banks Munnings restored parity 18-minutes in after Kirwan took an early lead through Taniesha Weston. The score ended 3-2 to Cav Road.

In the Cup Ipswich Grammar and Palm Beach Currumbin won through on the back of some great finishes along with polished defending.

Unfortunately for Chancellor, beaten 1-0 by Ipswich, they had no bench and were forced to play the last eight minutes one man short after Callan Bowtell Harris rolled an ankle.

Guiliano Marconato scored the goal for Ipswich in the 37th minute.

Palm Beach Currumbin booked their Queensland Final with a 3-2 golden goal victory over Burdekin Catholic in extra-time.

Noah Licciardello scored for Burdekin as half-time approached only to see Joshua Luckie (50minute) and then Connor Pegg (54m) secure a 2-1 lead for Palm Beach.

Not to be outdone or give in Burdekin’s Jared Giardina equalised just before the regulation 60-minutes expired.

Ethan Cave found the net in the second minute of additional time to book Palm Beach Currumbin’s appointment with Ipswich Grammar in the Final.
