The game was Carrara’s first since their round one defeat of Logan, with a round two washout and round three bye.

What the coaches said

Stewart Vimpany (Coomera):

“It was tight, close. Our bigger bodies got us over the line. They had a couple of bigger bodies but a bit slower than us.”

“It was a real positive. It was a really good hit out and we’re getting better each week. We’re starting to bond and play some really good footy.”

“We’ve still got room to improve.”

“We probably only played a half. It’s still a positive that even when we are switching off we can still get the win.”

“A lot of confidence but that can go to your head a bit.”

“Three pretty big wins but we don’t want to start to get ahead of ourselves. The ultimate goal is to win the flag but we’re a long way away from that.”

Calamvale vs. Ipswich

Ipswich 4.1, 13.4, 18.6, 21.13 (139)
Calamvale 2.3, 4.3, 6.4, 7.9 (51)

Ipswich picked up a dominant win over Calamvale, on the back of a nine-goal second quarter, on Saturday.

Forward pocket, Adam Gillespie, kicked nine in the win, with four in the second term.

What the coaches said:

Brad Stephen ( Calamvale):

“Second quarters haven’t been good this year.”

“The team is capable of matching it with other teams, but can’t seem to put it together for four quarters.”

“It’s guys thinking that someone else is going to do the job and forgetting what they did in the first quarter.”

“The brand of football we’re going to play is good enough but the lapses in concentration are costing us dearly. Finished well again but unless we play four quarters we’re not going to be in a position to win games.

Michael Rush (Ipswich):

“That second quarter, I think it was accurate kicking. We made the most of our chances.”

“Our kicking efficiency was well up. We turned It over a lot the previous week – on Saturday we were able to control the ball a bit better.“

“To their credit, they (Calamvale) were there to play but 2nd quarter just got a way from them.”

Pine Rivers vs. Griffith Moorooka:

 Pine Rivers 5.4, 9.7, 15.11, 19.14 (128)
Griffith Moorooka 2.2, 4.3, 6.3, 8.6 (54)
