NQ & Gold Coast through to U16 final

Brisbane South, North Queensland and the Gold Coast were the winners on day 2 of the Queensland U16 State Academy Championships at Burpengary.

In the match of the day, a blinding second half saw South Pacific come from behind to take the lead in the last quarter. Brisbane South rallied to boot a goal just seconds before the final siren to take the win by  three points.   

In game 2 North Queensland’s accuracy in front of goals was the telling factor in their win over Brisbane North. Despite 32-point margin, North Queensland had just two more shots on goal than their opponents.

The final match of the day saw a polished Gold Coast hit the gas in the second term to cruise to a comfortable victory over the Sunshine Coast
