Southport kicked the first goal of the game, but the remainder of the day belonged to Bond University.

After the game, Southport Coach Peter Doherty said, “Of course the result is disappointing, however, we will review it well, and learn a lot from it.”

“Bond University are a quality club and they showed on the weekend with a full team they are hard to beat.”
