Brisbane Strikers has won the 2013 Brisbane Roar ONE GOAL Silver Boot competition following a 3-2 win over Olympic FC in last night-s decider at Luxury Paints Stadium.

After racing out to a 2-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes, Olympic pulled one back through Danny Byrne before Strikers captain Jonti Richter restored the two goal buffer.

A goal late in stoppage time saw the match end 3-2 with both sides reduced to ten men following a goal-mouth altercation late in the second half.

Jai Ingham (Olympic) and Nick Robinson (Strikers) were named joint recipients of Player of the Tournament.

Brisbane Roar ONE GOAL Manager Brendon Boss was thrilled by the standard of play on show from all sides throughout the pre-season competition.

“Brisbane Roar, and in particular our ONE GOAL program, is proud to be the sponsors of this tournament,” Boss said.

“Particular thanks to go Lions FC for hosting the event and special congratulations to Brisbane Strikers for their Grand Final win and their unbeaten run throughout the tournament.”

In the third-fourth place play-off, Peninsula Power beat Moreton Bay United 1-0 with a first-half penalty that was won by Michael Butters and converted by Richie Hurlin.
