Brisbane Roar crush Central Coast Mariners in winning A-League Powerchair Championship crown

Australian Powerchair Football Association Inc.

With the A-League Powerchair Champions having wrapped up earlier today, the Brisbane Roar crushed Central Coast Mariners 8 – 0 to claim the inaugural title.  The final was played in Sydney at Sydney Olympic Park.



The Roar had cruised through group play, winning every match.  A few games were close with the Roar winning 1 – 0, but they were not given any serious challenge throughout the competition.  For players on the Roar, it gave them valuable experience ahead of the next national championships, where Queensland looks to be an easy medal favorite.


The competition was also a good experience for other teams in the competition. Melbourne City brought Craig Kilby, Luke David, Jules North-Coombes, James North-Coombes and Micheal Murdaca to New South Wales for the competition. It was Kilby’s debut with the team. Murdaca score Melbourne City’s only goal in the competition, one of the only goals allowed by Brisbane on their way to victory.  With a few Victorian players on the squad, it provided them with good interstate experience ahead of nationals.
