[quote]The Gold Coast Football Club has overcome a 30 point three-quarter-time deficit to defeat the Brisbane Lions Reserves side at the Gabba this afternoon.
A small but loyal band of GCFC fans saw an historic win for the Club in the first game of what is sure to be a fierce QLD rivalry with the Brisbane Lions.
While only a practice match, the win gives Guy McKenna's young side great confidence as it heads into the VFL season, when round one kicks off on April 10th.
Brisbane Lions Reserves
GCFC Best Players: Matera, McKenzie, Hine, Magin, Smith, Iles, Coad
