QAFA (A) Finals Week One

Redcliffe wil have a double chance at a QAFA (A) grand final spot, after claiming a comfortable win over Pine Rivers in their qualifying final last weekend.

The Tigers led all day, keeping the Swans goalless in the opening term, as they ran out 17.22 (124) – 10.8 (68) winners.

Luke Hedger kicked four for Redcliffe in the victory, one of 10 individual goal kickers for the Tigers on the day.

Peter Furness was pivotal for Redcliffe in the match, while Ricky Milligan and Ben Foley were also solid.

Shayne Etherton booted three goals for Pine Rivers, with Michael Ayre important for the Swans.

Redcliffe now face minor premiers, Griffith Moorooka, for a spot in the grand final.

Ipswich survived a final term flurry to keep their 2014 campaign alive, with a 13.8 (86) – 12.10 (82) win over UQ on Saturday.

UQ took a narrow advantage early, leading by a goal at quarter time, before the Eagles hit back with a five-gaol to one second term, giving them an 18-poitn lead at the major break.

Extending that to 22 points at the final change, The Eagles narrowly weathered a UQ storm that saw the Red Lions ahead in the late stages.

Ipswich steeled themselves to return serve and snatch back the advantage, which ultimately ended up being a match-winning effort.

Luke Konstanciak was the focal point up forward for the Eagles in the dramatic victory, kicking six goals, while Keith Brick was their best.

UQ’s Aiden Ryan also kicked a bag, with six goals, while David Doherty finished with five.

Ipswich will play Pine Rivers for a spot in next weekend’s preliminary final, on Saturday.
