Ipswich Vs Calamvale
Last time they met – Ipswich 25.10.160 def. Calamvale 12.9.81
Ipswich will be at home against Calamvale this week to kick off round eleven in State Association division two. The Eagles will want to create a buffer between themselves and Calamvale, with a win here certain to elevate them inside the top six. A disappointing loss to Coomera last week could prove to be costly once finals positions are sorted, although Tayne Pilsbury was again prominent in front of goals, finishing with six for the day. Tyler Craven and Michael Podolak also featured heavily in the 44 point loss. Calamvale were not able to keep up with Logan last round, going down by 79 points. Not even Alan Flower could prevent the drubbing although he still leads the competition in goals scored and will have a massive influence on this game.
Griffith Moorooka Vs Beenleigh
Last time they met – Beenleigh 15.12.102 def. Griffith Moorooka 10.5.65
The battered and bruised Griffith Moorooka team will take on Beenleigh at Moorooka on Saturday. The Griffith Moorooka boys were not the first team to feel the wrath of the powerful Nambour side, but so far this has been their most overwhelming display. The 187 point thumping showed the difference between first and last place on the ladder, with skipper Aaron Bigley trying his best and Rob Workman coming away with two goals. Beenleigh produced a dominating display against the other university side in the competition last week, beating UQ convincingly by 140 points. In that game Andrew Graham finished with eight goals and now has 37 for the season. Jordan Cowley was also useful with four goals, but Glen Van Breemen was the standout, taking best on ground honours.
Nambour Vs Redcliffe
Last time they met – Nambour 18.14.122 def. Redcliffe 8.10.58
It is Redcliffe’s turn to travel up to the Northshore Multisport Complex to face the imposing Nambour team who are coming off their biggest win of the year so far. The 30 goal victory was just as convincing as you will see anywhere, with the Nambour back six limiting Griffith to just 7 scoring shots, while Simon Pickering had a day out, botting 10 majors in a best on ground performance. The Tigers also had a solid win last week, getting over the Caboolture Lions by 22 points. The Lions were sitting inside the top three before that loss, so Nambour should know that the Tigers will be able to run with the best sides in the competition, despite the result the first time they met. Vice Captain Damien Lee has been consistent over the past month, while Scott Davis and Jason Apps have also had strong outings in recent weeks and will need to be on against Nambour this week.
Logan Vs Caboolture
Last time they met – Logan 13.6.84 def. Caboolture 11.4.70
Caboolture will travel to Logan on Saturday to face the Cobras and try climb back inside the top three. Their upset loss last week against Redcliffe was costly in many ways, with their percentage and position on the ladder suffering. Adam Wilkinson and Tony Ramsey tried their best over the four quarters, and Grant Wilkinson came away with two goals in a forgettable day for the club. Logan has continued to bounce back from their loss against Nambour a couple weeks ago, as they easily disposed of Calamvale by 89 points last round. Ash and Dylan Witney continue to be the danger men for the Cobras, while Daniel Milligan is sure to be a handful if the Lions don’t contain him early.
UQ Red Lions Vs Coomera
Last time they met – Coomera 18.11.119 def. UQ Red Lions 3.6.24
The last game of the round will see the Red Lions do battle against Coomera at Oakman Park. The last time these two sides met Coomera put on a clinic at finished with a 95 point win. Since then Coomera have had some notable performances, and last week was no exception. Their 44 point win over Ipswich was even more impressive considering they were down going into the main break and then piled on 12 second half goals to come away with the four points. The Red Lions were not so lucky last week, with the 140 point loss at the hands of Beenleigh one of the biggest seen in the competition so far this year. Dan Cohen and Kendall Jones had a good crack, but there weren’t enough contributors to force any real pressure. This will have to be reversed considerably if they want to get close to a Coomera side on the rise.
