Caboolture Vs Griffith Moorooka

Caboolture will be at home to Griffith Moorooka this Saturday to open round 16 in the State Association Division two. The Lions put up a gallant effort last week, going down by 13 points to competition powerhouse Nambour. After losing the lead in the second quarter, the Lions were able to finish well in the last stanza, but it wasn’t enough. Bayden Wilson and Chris Allen were outstanding, while Josh Moyle, Brandon Ross and Brad Meek all had two goals and were equally influential. Griffith weren’t as impressive in their outing against Coomera as they lost by 104 points. Unable to put a goal on the scoreboard until the third quarter, the damage had already been done following a six goal opening term by Coomera. Captain Chris Lowe was best in the disappointing display, as were Glen Fury, Tom McDonald and Luke Stewart who also kicked two goals.

Last time they met:
3.14-32   Griffith Moorooka def. by Caboolture   23.16-154

Calamvale Vs Coomera

Coomera have a chance to climb into the top five with a win against Calamvale this week. Following their massive 104 point demolition last round, the Magpies superior percentage could see them climb into finals contention only three weeks from seasons end. Gary Smith was lively in the front half, booting four goals and creating plenty of chances for crumbing forwards. Jamie Cootes was again best on ground in another top showing. The Coomera defence will need to be weary of the competition’s leading goal scorer Alan Flower who has proven to be the difference on some occasions this year. He kicked four last week to take his season tally to 69, which is more impressive considering his side is sitting third from the bottom. Had it not been for errant kicking last week the Leopards may have improved on their 86 point win over the UQ Red Lions. Coomera were able to kick a big score against Calamvale in round seven, but if the Leopards forward line are on it could very well be a much closer contest this time.

Last time they met:
25.10-160   Coomera def. Calamvale   9.7-61

Ipswich Vs Beenleigh

Ipswich will have their work cut out for them at Limestone Park on Saturday as they face the red hot Beenleigh Buffaloes. Their last month has been impressive to say the least, but in round 15 the Buffaloes took it to another level in a 167 point thrashing against finals contenders Redcliffe. Andrew Graham had a 10 goal haul and was also named best on ground. Other goals were shared between Matt Derrick and Mitch Fryer who had four and three respectively, while also contributing to Graham’s haul with countless goal assists. Beenleigh had 13 individual goal scorers for the day in what could be seen as the season’s most dominant performance so far. Ipswich had the unfortunate task of travelling to Logan to face the ladder leaders, and the result wasn’t exactly favourable. The Eagles managed only two goals for the game, their first coming in the third quarter, to lose by 95 points. Travis Gordon and Matt Lincoln and tried hard in the lopsided match, as did Josh Gardner and Mark Kennedy. It is hard to see this week ending any differently for Ipswich this week, especially after Beenleigh’s remarkable effort in round 15.

Last time they met:
19.19-133   Beenleigh def. Ipswich   9.8-62

UQ Red Lions Vs Nambour and Hinterland

The UQ Red Lions will be taking the tough road trip up the coast to play Nambour at Palmwoods on Saturday. This game is made even tougher after their poor showing against Calamvale in round 15. The Red Lions were only able to get 13 scoring shots on the scoreboard, and had it not been for the wayward kicking of Calamvale, the result may have been much more grim. The UQ back six will need to be on if they are any chance of stopping the dangerous Nambour forward line. Their threat in the front half was underlined in last week’s 13 point victory against the highly rated Caboolture. The Nambour forwards were the difference in the match, as Jason Weckert booted seven majors in a best on ground effort, and Simon Pickering finished with four of his own. The Red Lions are sure to have their hands full and the long road trip won’t help their cause.

Last time they met:
6.8-44   UQ Redlions 2 def. by Nambour & Hinterland   24.14-158

Redcliffe Vs Logan

The Redcliffe Tigers have their back against the wall and will need a win against Logan at home this week to remain inside the top five. Their disastrous outing last week has reduced their percentage dramatically, and now the Tigers are fighting to remain in contention for finals. There were few shinning lights in the 27 goal romping at the hands of Beenleigh, although Richard Kernick and Michael Alkin did their best to weather the storm. The Redcliffe defenders cannot have a repeat performance of last week as Logan has a deadly arsenal in front of goal. In their 95 point win against Ipswich, Dylan Witney and Karl D’Orazio both kicked five goals and were lively in the first half in particular. Skipper Dan Milligan has continued to be influential for the Cobras, as has Matt Sinclair and Nathan Wellington who was named best on ground. Redcliffe have a lot to play for and have performed well at home in the past, but it will be a mighty effort to get over Logan who have the finals in their sights.
Last time they met:
11.16-82   Logan City def. Redcliffe   7.3-45
