Draw clinches CQPL minor premiership
SOCCER: It wasn't pretty by any stretch of the imagination but Clinton FC's 0-0 draw against Capricorn Coast was enough to secure them the CQ Premier League minor premiership.
Clinton, looking for revenge after losing out on top spot by one goal last season, knew that they only needed a point to claim regular season bragging rights.
In a game with little chances in front of goal, each side had an opportunity inside the final 10 minutes but couldn't break the deadlock.
Clinton assistant coach Dan Horton said his side was relieved to claim the minor premiership after finishing second in the previous two seasons.
"To wrap it up with two games to go is very good but, hopefully, we can win it by as many points as we can," he said.
"That definitely wasn't our best game, we didn't play very well and didn't create many chances, but neither did they.
"It was just a scrappy game. It would've been good to get the win but we'll still celebrate and then move on to next week."
The Grubs face Southside (home) and Central FC (away) in the final two rounds of the season.
Central managed a 2-2 home draw to Bluebirds at Sun Valley Oval.
The result keeps Central in fourth place with a finals position guaranteed.
Clinton FC 0 drew Cap Coast 0
Central FC 2 (Dawson Frost 30', Joel Frost 89') drew Bluebirds 2 (Liam McClean 40', Bradd Dillon 70').
