Ruckman Daniel Flint led the way for Aspley, playing almost the entire game, while centre half-forward Scott Palmer laid the foundations for a strong forward-half performance.
What the coaches said:
Adam Holland (Aspley):
“I think it was just getting consistency across four quarters that got us over the line.
“That’s something we haven’t been able to string together too often this season.”
“Early, we forced them into a few stumbles and forced them into rushed possession, which set a bit of a tone for the rest of the day.”
“His (Palmer’s) defensive work, once the footy hit the ground, he was chasing, laying the tackles set the standard for defensive pressure in the forward line.”
“It was the second time this year that we’ve had no injuries in a game and coincidentally the second time we’ve won.”
“We’ve got opportunity to go back to back now and that’s something.”
Russell Evans (Caloundra):
“We played very poorly.”
“Aspley played pretty well but we made a lot of skill errors and those skill errors created turnovers, which became a big problem.”
“We’ve got to keep improving our skill level and our work rate’s got to go up.”
