A blistering first half set up a dominant win for Beenleigh over UQ on Saturday.

The Buffaloes almost took the game in the opening quarter, kicking six goals to none, before a nine goal second term put them 80 points in the red.

The Red Lions fought well in the second half but could not get back into the contest.

What the coaches said:

Jarad Evans (UQ):

“First half was a bit of a blowout but the second half was better.”

“Things are starting to work out . We’re always going t ocome up against very good sides.”

“Our strength is going to be our speed. We’re not a big side, but we’re a quick side.”

“We’ll be a lot more competitive at the bottom end of the table. The Coomeras and Beenleighs of the world going to do well, but to knock a couple of sides off in the in the bottom half, that’s our goal.”

Coomera vs. Griffith Moorooka

Coomera                                 6.3,  9.5,  12.10,  18.14  (122) 
Griffith Moorooka                       1.3,  1.3,  2.5,  2.5  (17)   

Twelve goals to Josh Murray set up another massive win for Coomera, this time over Griffith Moorooka.

The Magpies have established themselves as the benchmark of the competition and despite being challenged by the Roosters, did not really look like losing.

What the coaches said:

Stuart Vimpany (Coomera):

“It was a bit more intense. Now that we’re at the top, we’re going to be the hunted every week.”

“As much as they only scored 2.5, they really stuck it to us in the game and gave it a red hot crack.”

“It was a challenge for us. No side’s actually done that to us yet.”

Logan vs. Ipswich

Logan City Cobras           3.0,  5.1,  8.6,  12.9  (81)
Ipswich                                 6.2,  7.5,  8.6,  8.8  (56)  

Logan picked up its second win of the season, against Ipswich.

Despite starting on the back foot, the Cobras fought their way into the contest, drawing level at the final change.

A four-goal to none final term sealed the win for Logan, who are now sitting in fourth.

Carrara vs. Calamvale

 Carrara                                 34.12  (216) 
Calamvale                             14.12  (96)   

Carrara is more than proving it can mix it in Division three, with a big win on Saturday.

The Saints’ Jason McConchie kicked 12 in the dominant win, supported by captain Jason Winkler, who finished with six.

What the coaches said

Teddy Fenton (Carrara):

“The younger boys worked with older boys and the older boys worked with their younger boys and they were really gelling as a team.”

“Jason McConchie and captain Jason Winkler led the way with kicking the goals.

“The boys have just got to be focused and disciplined and have respect for each other.”

Brad Stephen (Calamvale):

“The first half was exactly how I wanted the boys to play and it showed.”

“Again we just got into a comfort zone and mentally switched off. But the boys showed true fight to the end.”

“It was good to see how they applied themselves to the style we wanted to play. If we can continue and aply for four quarters then a win’s not too far away from us.”

“Wade Hurst was very good in the centre for us, plays it he whole game, never gives in and a lot of guys could learn from him to keep persevering and doing the team things for the whole game.”
