Community Footy Finals: Week Three

QAFA (B) North Grand Final


Gympie vs. Maroochydore
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Pomona

The first grand final cab off the rank in 2015 is the QAFA (B) North, and it’s being played out between the two best teams all year. Gympie and Maroochydore finished one and two this year, and it was Gympie who controlled the contest in the first week of finals when they squared off.

Maroochydore will need to find another gear tomorrow, but found some form last week with their win over Bribie Island.


QFA North


Noosa vs. Caloundra
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Weyba Rd

These two teams finished third and forth on the ladder, but Noosa definitely have had the wood over Caloundra so far this year. They will be playing off to stay alive this year, with the winner taking on the loser of the Mayne vs. Maroochydore game next week.


Mayne vs. Maroochydore
Saturday August 29, 2:30pm – Mott St

A grand final berth is just 80 minutes of football away for one of these two teams, with the winner booking their ticket to the big dance in a fortnight’s time. Mayne may have finished on top, but Maroochydore have definitely been their bogey team this year, going down to them twice. Tomorrow will be an absolute cracker.



QFA South


Springwood vs. Kenmore
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Lowe Oval

It’s a bit of déjà vu for these two teams, having only played each other last week. It was Springwood who got the job done that day by 31 points, and earned themselves a home final this week.

Kenmore will have a bit of work to do to bridge the gap, but you would think they may have just kept a few cards up their sleeves to roll out this week. The winner of this game will go on to play Coorparoo next week for a grand final spot, and the loser will play the winner of Yeronga and Burleigh.


Yeronga South Brisbane vs. Burleigh
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Leyshon Park

It’s all on the line for Yeronga and Burleigh this week, as they clash in an elimination final. They have been hard to split this year, with the head to head at one all. Yeronga finished fourth on the ladder, which has given them home ground advantage this weekend, but it’s a real toss of the coin game.

The winner of this one will take on either Kenmore or Springwood next week, and the loser will have to pack their bags.




Griffith Moorooka vs. Southeast SUNS
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Alexander Park

These two teams, after finishing second and third respectively, will play off for a crack at Bond University next week, and more importantly, a chance to grab one of the grand finals spots.

There wasn’t much between these two all year. They sit at one all in the head to head, and there was just four points separating them on the ladder. Will be a very interesting couple of hours tomorrow.

Carrara vs. Victoria Point
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Kianawah Road

The first elimination final for the QAFA (A) this year, and, in what seems to be a trend in the finals this year, it is one all in the head to head. Carrara have had the more consistent year overall, but finals always throws a curve ball up. The winner of this game will progress through to next week, but it will be curtains for the loser in 2015.


QAFA (B) Central


Woodsmen vs. Zillmere
Friday August 28, 7:30pm, E.K. Anderson Oval

It’s really starting to heat up in the QAFA (B) Central, with just two weeks left. Woodsmen couldn’t knock over the undefeated Kedron last week, but had the luxury of a double chance. Zillmere got over the top of Jimboomba in absolute nail bitter, and don’t expect this week to be any different. You’d think Woodsmen will be just slightly too strong tonight.


QAFA (B) South

Tweed Coast Tigers vs. Ballina Bombers
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Fripp Oval

Tweed Coast were no match for Byron last week, who booked themselves a grand final berth with the win, but it’s not all over yet. The winner of this one will go on to try and be the first team to defeat the Magpies in 2015 on the biggest day. Tweed advanced through to this week with a hard fought win over Lismore, but are definitely a big chance of causing an upset tomorrow. This will be tight.


Colts North


Maroochydore vs. UQ
Saturday August 29, 2:00pm – Moreton Bay Oval 1

Maroochydore had a day to forget last week up against Aspley in the first qualifying final, but get another crack at it this week up against UQ, who, despite some inaccurate kicking, got the job done over Winston Grange by three goals.

The winner of this game will advance to the big dance next week against Aspley, where, as we all know, anything can happen.


Colts South


Mt Gravatt vs. Broadbeach
Saturday August 29, 9:00am – Cooke Murphy Oval

With Southport locking away one of the grand final spots with their win over Mt Gravatt last week, it’s do or die for these two teams tomorrow if they want a crack at the ultimate glory.

Broadbeach were too strong for Labrador last week, setting up a mouthwatering clash with the Vultures. You get the feeling that the first quarter will go a long way to determining who wins this one.
