SOUTHPORT SHAKRS v SANDGATE
Sandgate wreaked havoc against the Southport Sharks on Sunday, securing a 2. 5 (17) – 17. 27 (129) overthrow.
Recent losses against Broadbeach and Wilston Grange seemed to be long forgotten by the Hawks.
The Sharks could only manage to put a point on the board for the first half of the match with the Hawks dominating the whole way through.
The Hawks’ Connor Stackelberg continued with his goal kicking superiority, seizing 9 goals in the game to bring his season total to 54.
MAROOCHYDORE v CALOUNDRA
Maroochydore could not and did not take bottom-ranked Caloundra lightly on the weekend, with a 16. 17 (113) – 1. 5 (11) win in the Roos’ favour at Yeronga.
The Roos bought a stellar team forward with the likes of Aiden Frankombe, Samuel Mckenzie and Brad Ilott dominating in the attack.
The Panthers have exhausted any hope of moving forward in the finals series.
MORNINGSIDE v BURLEIGH
In yet another sizeable victory for one of South East Queensland’s Colt sides, Morningside took on Burleigh and washed them away with a 17. 13 (115) – 3. 5 (23) win.
The Panthers were an ill-match for the Bombers, who unfortunately had the short end of the stick, sitting eleventh on the ladder.
Morningside’s mass of high calibre players had their names all over the final outcome.
MAYNE v WILSTON GRANGE
One of the more exciting games of Sunday was between Mayne and Wilston Grange, with Wilston Grange coming through to take away a 8. 5 (53) – 10. 17 (77) defeat.
With each side in hot form, no one could predict what would become of the game when the final siren blew.
The Gorillas were quick to secure the lead and they held it through to the end, with the Tigers almost catching up, but unable to follow through.
The Gorillas’ half forward Joshua Harvey earned best player, kicking 3 goals.
