SUN VALLEY OVAL saw a close game on Saturday night when Central triumphed over Berserker in the CQ Premier League match.
Possession at the start of the game was fairly even with the score sheet nil-all at half-time.
In the second half, Central stepped up their performance to come away up 2-1.
Berserker coach Garth Rose noted that his team played better in the first half of the game.
"We started the game as we should have," he said.
Central coach Dave Longden said that nerves may have got to the players at the start. "They realised we were under pressure to win this game," he said.
Longden said Andrew Maynard's goal early in the second half relieved some of that pressure.
Garth Lawrie then secured the lead with a penalty shot. He said midfielder Grant Stokes played well as did Michael Heymer and Liam Kirk in the backs.
