Aspley Vs Kedron

Round 14 will kick off at Graham Road on Saturday, with Aspley taking on Kedron in the second northside derby for the year. The Lions were too good at home in round 5 and were able to hold on to take the four points. The Hornets have been buzzing over the past month, with big wins over Alexandra Hills and Kenmore. The mid-season turnaround still hasn’t been enough to keep them off the bottom of the ladder, despite the best efforts of small forward Chris Burdon, skipper Steve Jackson and former Queensland junior Richard Harrison. Kedron will be buoyed by the return of forward Steve Rees who will reignite his partnership with Steve Jamieson at the front half of the ground. Last week Jamieson was able to put on five majors and help his team beat Alex Hills by eight goals. The Aspley backline has been impressive in recent weeks, and this form will need to continue in order to constrict the forwards that Kedron have at their disposal.

Kedron 11.13.70 def. Aspley 9.16.70

Wynnum Vs Kenmore

Wynnum will want to keep their winning feeling as they face a down and out Kenmore outfit at Kianawah Road this week. The Bears suffered a 16 point loss to Aspley in round 13 and now face the Vikings who have their 7th spot on the ladder in their sights. Brendan Stirling was again impressive, booting 5 goals and working hard all day. Although he was not at his best, Captain Tim Plummer was still a useful contributor, while Tom Baldwin turned in a fine performance in the loss. The Vikings were able to beat Robina by a goal in their last outing, with Will Broome’s four goals proving to be the difference. Trent Farrow and Rob Longland were also very handy in the win. The last time these two sides met Wynnum put in one of their best games for the year and came away with the victory. If Kenmore wants to play finals football this year, these are the games that they need to win.

Yeronga Vs Coorparoo

Yeronga are up against Coorparoo at Leyshon Park on Saturday, with a win needed to keep the buffer between them and the rest of the teams wanting a spot in the finals. The Devils had the tough task of facing ladder leaders UQ and went down by 28 points. Matt Lockyer was again the standout, kicking two goals and named his side’s best for the day. Matt Brown was the main target up forward, booting four goals, while skipper Alex Gregoriou was another solid contributor. Coorparoo have continued their climb up the ladder and now sit in 3rd position. In round 13 they were able to get the best of Caloundra in a replay of last year’s grand final. The 36 point victory was impressive to say the least, and this was largely due to the services of Alex Carty who was the clear best on ground. Adam Lewis and Tyson Spurling also presented well and finished with four goals each.  Coorparoo did enough to get over Yeronga in round five and have improved dramatically since then. The Devils will need to be at their very best to test the Coorparoo boys this week.

Coorparoo 13.15.93 def. Yeronga 12.8.80

Caloundra Vs Robina

Robina faces its biggest road trip of the year this week as they travel to North Street at Caloundra to take on the Panthers. Currently sitting second last on the ladder, the Roos lost a close one last week against Wynnum. James Palmer looked dangerous in patches up forward and finished with three goals for the game, while the Weterings brothers both had two apiece. Caloundra will need to respond in a big way after their loss to Coorparoo last week. Their season has been on the slide in recent weeks and it is evident they are missing Captain Matt Clarke. In his absence Jake Weller has stepped up and provided a quality target up forward. Mitch Hyde has also been good in the midfield and had three goals to his name last week. Caloundra held on to win by a point in their last outing, but the close score was largely due to 26 behinds they scored on what was a remarkably wayward day in front of goals. The Panthers need a win to keep their spot at the point end of the ladder and it would be expected that they should do it quite comfortably.

UQ Red Lions Vs Alexandra Hills

The UQ Red Lions will be looking to take advantage of Alexandra Hills’ poor form of late in their game at St Lucia on Saturday. The Red Lions have grown to be the most exciting team in the competition, with a deadly forward line and more than adequate midfield providing winning scores against quality opponents. Last week was no different, with UQ beating Yeronga by five goals. Blain Coates was superb and named best afield, while Brad Percy has been a welcome injection of class both in front of goal and around the ground. Luke Wray bagged five majors for the day with Hugh Millikan kicking three to take him to 52 for the year. The Bombers have continued their slide down the ladder after a loss to Kedron last week. The comprehensive eight goal loss has underlined their recent decline at the wrong time of the year. Key target Ash Templar has been quiet in recent weeks and will need to lift, while Dave Walters, Alex De Hayr and Captain Blake Joseph will need to continue their individual form if they are any hope of touching UQ.

Alexandra Hills 11.11.77 def. UQ 9.6.60
