Key clashes headline SEQ footy weekend

By Michelle Esperanza-Lee

QFA (North) Round 7

 Aspley vs. Noosa

Second-placed Noosa came close to dethroning leaders Mayne on the board up till the final quarter in their standoff in Round six and will be looking to rebound against Aspley. This weekend’s match against Aspley could aid in healing Noosa’s wounds.

Kedron vs. Caloundra

Kedron will be riding high from their victory last round. That big win, may just be what the doctor ordered and they’ll be hoping to continue that momentum this weekend.  However, Caloundra, off a win against the Hornets will prove to be quite a challenge.

Maroochydore vs. Caboolture

With no wins this season, Caboolture will try to come up on top this weekend after last round’s clash with Kendron. Meanwhile, Maroochydore had a comfortable lead over Nambour & Hinterland in the previous round, ending the night with a score of 126-41.

Mayne vs. Nambour and Hinterland

Four points clear on top of the board, Mayne look to extend their lead with their match against Nambour & Hinterland, who only have a win under their belts. It could be an easy win for the Tigers this weekend after their narrow escape of defeat in the previous round against Noosa.

QFA (South) Round 7

 Alexandra Hills vs. Coolangatta-Tweed

Alexandra Hills are looking to bounce back from the defeat handed to them by leaders Springwood last week. The match should provide them the thirst for a win. Bottom of the table Coolangatta-Tweed would be looking to notch another win under their belts as well- a win that could propel them up the ladder.

Robina vs. Burleigh

This will be a crucial match for both teams as a win could keep them in contention for top spot. The Bombers are fresh off a win over Coorparoo, while Robina triumphed over Coomera as well, with a victory of 166-54.

Springwood vs. Kenmore

Kenmore will go up against undefeated Springwood, as the Pumas prepare to stretch their lead ahead of the crucial Robina vs. Burleigh match. Kenmore had a nail-biting Round eight against Yeronga South Brisbane,eventually winning 125-78.

Yeronga South Brisbane vs. Coorparoo

Coorparoo held their own quite nicely in the first quarter from the last round against 3rd placed Burleigh but faded late. Yeronga South Brisbane suffered the same fate last week when they started off with a 12-point lead over Kenmore but eventually were overpowered.

QAFA (A) Round 9

Ipswich vs. Griffith-Moorooka

Ipswich dominated Beenleigh at every quarter last week, and will be hoping to continue that streak against the undefeated Griffith-Moorooka, who are sitting comfortably at the top of the table after their win against Pine Rivers.

Redcliffe vs. Pine Rivers

Second-placed Redcliffe had an easy win over Logan, extending their winning margin in the final quarter by 68 points last week. Third-placed Pine Rivers had a rollercoaster of a match last week against current leaders Griffith-Moorooka, starting strong with a lead in the first quarter but eventually losing with a score of 105-86. This match will be an exciting one for both teams who will claw for the 4 points on the leaderboard.

University of Queensland vs. Park Ridge

Park Ridge had their third win of the season last week against Carrara. They were in control of the game throughout and steadily increased their score to end the night with 155-88. Meanwhile, UQ will be gunning to stay in the ltop three.

Carrara vs. Beenleigh

Beenleigh should be itching for a win- the only team without one in the league, and this weekend’s match against second-to-last placed Carrara could mean their first four point. Carrara would be looking to cut their losses as well and gun for the win this weekend.
