Paul O’Healihy runs to celebrate with the fans after opening the scoring from the spot.

Three first-half goals were enough to see off West Brisbane and ensure that Brook Street would finish the season on a high in second place in the Division; our highest ever finish and ranking (72).

Paul O’Healihy set us on the road to victory from the penalty spot with eighteen minutes played after Onésimo Murube had been hauled back.

Seven minutes later, and the big Irishman was in the right place to finish off an excellent move on the left to double our lead.

Brook Street visibly lowered the tempo after this as the game was all but over as a contest, however Onésimo Murube was still alert enough to spot Kirk Walker dallying on the ball and dispossess him before slamming the ball into the net four minutes before the break.

“This has been a superb season for the club, and to finish in second place is far beyond even our wildest dreams”, said a delighted Arjen Bogaert after the match.

He continued, “We have shown a tactical maturity this season which has perhaps been lacking in the past, and that has shown in our results. The way we took West Brisbane apart this afternoon showed exactly this”.

“Now we can look forward to the close season break before winding things up ready for the new season”.
