With the Lions going into the contest as minor premiers and filled with confidence; the Cats had to play at to their full potential.

Former Coolangatta Colts player Oliver Allingham returned to the team for the Lions while Gold Coast Academy product Cooper Hynes returned for the Cats.

The Lions roared away to a three-goal lead at quarter-time to lead by 18-points, 26 to 8.

Goals flowed for both sides in the second term; four goals apiece but the Lions still held the Cats at bay to lead by 16-points at the main break; 51 to 35.

The third term was a genuine arm-wrestle and the Lions had to work incredibly hard to keep the Cats from striking distance; holding on to an eight-point lead heading into the final term thanks to three goals from the Cats.

Broadbeach continued to press and delivered everything it could but could only kick truly on one occasion and PBC held on to win a thriller by four-points.

Goal kicking machine Luke Cahill kicked three goals for the winners while team mate Jack Stringer (two goals) and Tai Hayes impressed.

Broadbeach showed great courage with Will Cooperm Kyle Greenwood and Jack Jovanovic each kicking two goals.

Palm Beach Currumbin denied Broadbeach of the 2022 premiership in the Grand Final; and denied it of a place in the Grand Final 12-months later.

PBC will take on Maroochydore in the Colts Grand Final in the only battle between the Sunshine and Gold Coast on the day.
