Alexandra Hills Vs Aspley
Last time they met – Alexandra Hills 16.14.110 def. Aspley 16.13.109
Alexandra Hills and Aspley will open round ten at Keith Surridge oval on Saturday. In round one the Bombers came away with the points in a thriller, but the two sides have taken different paths since then. With only percentage separating Alex Hills from first place, there will be plenty of motivation to make the most of Aspley’s recent poor form. Last week the Hornets were outclassed against Coorparoo and got thumped by 101 points. Chris Burdon was one of the only Aspley players to put his hand up, finishing with four goals to help make the scoreboard more respectable. David Wilson had his hands full but continued his solid form down back in what proved to be a busy day. The Aspley defence will need to pay close attention to Ash Templar who was amongst the goals again last week, booting seven in the Bombers 90 point thrashing of Wynnum.
Wynnum Vs Coorparoo
Last time they met – Coorparoo 13.13.91 def. Wynnum 8.9.57
Wynnum will be up against Coorparoo this weekend, with the Kings running red hot following solid performances over the last month. Big name recruits Ben Gibson and Shane Morrison are delivering as expected, with Gibson named amongst the best in their 101 point win against Aspley last week, and Morrison finishing with seven goals. Wynnum are coming off a 90 point loss and will need the likes of William Broome and Scott Gillett to really lift their game to help get their side over the line.
Yeronga Vs Kedron
Last time they met – Yeronga 16.11.107 def. 6.16.52
Yeronga will face off against Kedron at home this week after knocking off premiership favourites Caloundra in round nine. Matt Lockyer was in fine touch all day and contributed four goals in the 17 point victory. This win keeps them a game clear inside the top five, but in order to make a run at climbing the ladder, the Devils must now string some games together. Kedron were beaten by 29 points last week despite a seven goal last quarter. Ben Langham was best for the northside boys, finishing with five majors to his name, while Dan Duffield produced another consistent performance.
UQ Red Lions Vs Caloundra
Last time they met – Red Lions 15.6.96 def. Caloundra 12.21.93
Caloundra will travel to St Lucia to take on the Red Lions following a surprise loss to Yeronga last week. The defeat has brought them back to the pack in many regards, and they are now facing the Red Lions who got the better of them up the coast in round one. UQ has plenty of strike power up forward, with Hugh Millikan and Luke Wray bagging 66 goals between them so far this season. They were lucky to come away with the four points last week against Robina, as a goalless third quarter led to a Roo revival. Luckily Wray had his kicking boot on and UQ finished with a six point advantage. The big names from the Panthers camp will need to bounce back after last week as they should know by now what the UQ boys are capable of.
Kenmore Vs Robina
Last time they met – Kenmore 15.7.97 def. Robina 11.16.82
Kenmore and Robina will round up this week’s action at Western Districts Oval. Robina continued their poor recent form last round with a six point loss at the hands of the Red Lions. Kym Fraser was the standout on the day and also finished with four goals. Aaron Kidney also battled hard and was the other multiple goal scorer, finishing with two. Skipper Heath King continues to lead from the front and tried all day to get his team the win. They will be hungry for the long overdue four points and Kenmore will be well aware of their ability to test good sides. Last week Kenmore’s inspirational skipper Tim Plummer delivered a brilliant performance, with seven goals in yet another best on ground display. He now has 37 for the season and leads the competition. In their 29 point win against Kedron, Brendan Stirling was another who put in all day and also finished three goals.
