By Beth Newman

Logan City Cobras                       2.1,  5.3,  10.9,  14.14  (98)
UQ Redlions                             4.0,  6.1,  9.1,  12.3  (75)

Logan notched up a solid win over UQ on Saturday, keeping them in touch with finals.

The Cobras were coming off the bye, and started slowly, but steadied in the second half to finish on top.

Brad Clark kicked four for the Red Lions, while Danny Maxwell was also solid for the uni side.

UQ now sits second last, with only two wins so far this season.

Coomera                                 4.3, 7.6,  14.7,  18.8  (116)
Ipswich                                 0.0,  2.0,  2.0,  6.0  (36)

Coomera’s clean sheet has survived another week, as the Gold Coast side notched up a big win over Ipswich.

The Magpies sit a game clear at the top of the table and asserted their authority early, keeping the Eagles scoreless in the opening term.

Coomera player-coach, Stuart Vimpany, had his strongest game of the season, while Luke Gornall was strong running off half-back.

For the Eagles, youngster Matthew Ueberang continued his strong season with a best-on performance for the side.

What the coaches said:
Stuart Vimpany ( Coomera):

“Our backline has been the best all year, they’re very frugal down there.”

“We need to work on our Forward 50 pressure, that was probably a disappointing part of the game.”

“We’ve got a full list now coming into the big game against the Swans, our biggest challenge, going up the highway.”

Pine Rivers                 24.12  (156)
Carrara                               9.8  (62)

Another nine-goal haul from Pine Rivers spearhead, Barry O’Brien, set the tone for a dominant win over Carrara on Saturday.

The Swans bounced back from a disappointing effort against the Eagles last week to notch up the win, their fourth of the season.

O’Brien and Cameron Colvin (eight goals) kicked 17 between them in a crushing forward display.

Pine Rivers now sits in third, behind Coomera and Beenleigh, setting up a massive match against the Magpies at home on Saturday.

What the coaches said:
Ben Long (Pine Rivers):

“It was nice to get back in the winner’s circle after a flogging last week and get a win.”

“We expected we were a good chance, but didn’t expect to win by that much.”  

“This week we can actually report no injuries, that’s probably the happiest thing to come out of the weekend.”

“Our defensive mindset was a lot better than last week. Our tackling was good and we created a lot of turnovers and that was probably the biggest change (this week).”

Beenleigh                               6.4,  16.9,  22.12,  32.16  (208)
Calamvale                               0.4,  3.5,  5.8,  5.10  (40)

Beenleigh bounced back from a loss to Coomera, to record a massive win voer Calamvale on Saturday.

Led by an eight goal haul from Ashley Templar, the Buffaloes reinforced their status as flag contenders.

Ten-goal second and final quarters sealed the win for Beenleigh against the Leopards.
The win keeps Calamvale winless and stuck to the bottom of the Division three ladder.

Tasmanian product Luke Donnelly was the best for Calamvale on the day.

What the coaches said:
Brad Steven (Calamvale):

“The score was disappointing obviously but what I asked of the players, I got from them on the day.”

“It was good in that sense, they took a lot of pride in the way they went about the game yesterday.”

“ I think the guys are pretty keen to get that consistency in their game and not play good one week and… put it out the window the following week .”

“As a whole, we’re improving in all areas week by week.”
