Game two saw the Gold Coast cruise to a 53-point victory over the Sunshine Coast in a game with two distinctive halves.
The Gold Coaster mid-size players gave their forwards plenty of opportunities, setting up the victory with a dominant 12-goal-to-2 first half.
The Sunshine Coast defence was fantastic in the second half, with stand-out performances by their key defenders.
They outscored their opponents by three goals in the last two quarters but it was a case of too little, too late, going  down 7.6.48 to the Gold Coast 15.11.101.
