Logan Vs Beenleigh

Beenleigh has the opportunity to beat the top side in the competition for the second time in three weeks as they take on Logan at Dauth Park. The Buffaloes handed Nambour their first loss of the year in round 12 and continued their brilliant form with a 98 point thumping of Calamvale. The Beenleigh back six were impressive, keeping dangerous Calamvale forward Alan Flower to only three goals. Matt Derrick did some damage up forward with three goals and was amongst the best, while Mitch Vasternick was clearlybest on ground. The Cobras will be keen to stay on top of the table, and if last week is anything to go by, Beenleigh will need to bring their A game. Logan hammered Coomera by 82 points, with Karl D’Orazio kicking five majors. Steve Collier was fantastic all day and skipper Dan Milligan was dominant.

Logan 18.13.121 def. Beenleigh 17.7.109

Caboolture Vs Calamvale

Calamvale will travel to Alexander Barr Oval on Saturday to face the Caboolture Lions in the opening game of round 14. The Lions were too good in their last meeting and held on to beat Calamvale by a goal. Caboolture have had a solid season so far and currently sit fourth on the ladder. They had a big 100 point victory against UQ last week, where Chris Allen was superb in his best on ground performance. Brad Peak was another standout for the day, booting five goals and being named in his side’s best. Calamvale didn’t have it so easy, however, and suffered a 15 goal demolition at the hands of Beenleigh. Alan Flower was only able to put on three goals but still leads the competition with 63 for the year. Ren Lovitt was good again last week and has continued to improve over the past month.

Caboolture 15.12.102 def. Calamvale 15.6.96

Coomera Vs Nambour

Nambour will face one of their biggest road trips of the year when they take on Coomera at the Coomera Sports Park this week. They bounced back from their first loss of the season two weeks ago to beat Ipswich by 79 points. Chris Abraham was the best for Nambour, closely followed by Glenn Bauer and Simon Pickering who also managed to finish with five goals. Coomera had the tough task of facing Logan in round 13, and they were comprehensively beaten. The 14 goal loss was a poor effort, with Matt Hofert the only multiple goal scorer and Matt Jones playing a lone hand in a tough outing.

Last time they met:
Nambour 19.19.133 def. Coomera 8.11.59

UQ Red Lions Vs Griffith Moorooka

The second university derby for the season will be happening at St Lucia on Saturday, as rivals UQ and Griffith face off for bragging rights. Griffith were able to get the job done in round five and it remains to be their only win for the year. UQ had a big 100 point defeat against Caboolture last week with only a few contributors stopping the margin from being more that what it was. Will Larkin battled hard all day, as did Zach Bell. Barry Watkins finished with three goals, while Bell had two of his own. Griffith Moorooka were unable to go with Redcliffe in the second half of their contest last week, and ended up losing by 8 goals. Damien Hughes was useful at times and was Griffith’s best for the day, while Nathan Hard made the most of limited opportunities and grabbed two goals.

Last time they met:
Griffith 19.19.133 def. UQ Red Lions 15.8.98

Redcliffe Vs Ipswich

The last game of the round will see Ipswich up against Redcliffe at Rothwell Park. The Tigers are clinging to their spot in the top five and were able to stay a game clear after their win over Griffith Moorooka last week. Skipper Brett Somers was brilliant in the 45 point win, as was Brett Rawlings who ended up with five goals. The Eagles didn’t get the result they were after in a tough 14 goal loss to Nambour. There wasn’t much to be said for the disappointing result, but Justin Cummings and Tyler Craven tried hard all day. Ipswich were able to convincingly beat Redcliffe at home in round five, but it would be tough to see that happening again. The Tigers have improved since the early stages of the year and with their sights set firmly on a finals berth.

Last time they met:
Ipswich 22.10.142 def. Redcliffe 10.5.65
