Brothers defeated Goodna Eagles 37-18 in the Ipswich Rugby League Mayor Paul Pisasale A-Grade Cup preliminary final to qualify for the grand final.

Brothers' win means they will face Norths in the grand final for the second consecutive year.

When Brothers received a penalty in the 20th minute momentum shifted and William Oloitoa scored to get the Brethren back within four points of the lead.

A fantastic kick-off return earned the Brethren another penalty and Brothers now had the momentum going their way.

Four minutes before halftime Troy Sharpe powered his way over to score a great try extending Brothers' lead to 20-12.

Brothers' lead was extended to 13-points in the 51st minute when Caine Kaleopa charged his way over to score for the Brethren.

In the 70th minute Brothers' lead was reduced to seven points when Mitchell McNamee scored a try from a kick as Goodna attempted to stage a comeback.

Just five minutes later Brothers' lead was restored to 13-points when Nat Creedy scored a try.

With three minutes of the match remaining Beau Yates showed great effort in support and scored a try which gave Brothers a 37-18 lead.
