It was a sad week for the club with the passing of club legend – Pam Tobiasen, but it was very special to see our players at their various clubs wearing black armbands to honour and respect her. Many thanks to Victoria Point Sharks Football Club for conducting a very touching ceremony prior to their game against Bond Uni.
Over at Morningside there were 8- current Redland listed players with the Panthers taking on the Sherwood Magpies in a highly anticipated clash.
Morningside got the chocolates comfortably in the end winning by 33-points but got a scare in the second quarter when the Magpies kicked six goals to one to lead by 3-points at Half Time.
Jack “The Rolls-Royce” was very good again in the middle for Morningside and has taken the lead in the Cody Fullarton Cup for the Redland Bomber who has had the most votes in their club’s best players. It must be said though, that he was a bit quiet in the second and third quarter as Billy Johnson was given the tagging role on him and received four votes for his efforts.
Matt Hammelmann was again very handy providing a headache for Sherwood defenders, but unfortunately couldn’t kick straight kicking 2 goals 8 behinds.
It was great to see Moose McGannon and Reuben William playing their first game in the QAFL this year for Morningside, with Reuben unable to play for Port Melbourne this year due to cancellation of the VFL.
Caleb Franks was also solid in the middle for Sherwood but at the end of the day the bragging rights belonged to Morningside.
Over at Mt Gravatt, it was a thriller, with a goal after the siren by former Bomber Jonah Licht securing Mt Gravatt’s first win of the season defeating Maroochydore by a point.
Luke O’Sullivan and Tom Matthews were very good for Mt Gravatt while Harrison Gobbie continues to show promising signs. Jai Larkins played well for Maroochydore.
Down at the Gold Coast, Millsy’s Broadbeach was too good for Labrador, winning by 62-points at home. A Cats v Panthers Grand Final looms!!
In QFA Division 1, the Noosa boys beat Aspley by 3-points, after trailing at Half Time. Seb, Will, and Mav all kicked goals for Noosa.
Also, in QFA Division 1, Jack Wratten’s Coorparoo, aided by the handy inclusion of former NT Thunder Abraham Ankers, got back on the winner’s sheet defeating Beenleigh by 14-points. Wratten added to his solid performance last week with another goal.
In QFA Division 2 South, Victoria Point Sharks cemented themselves as premiership contenders defeating last years premiers Bond Uni by 69-points.
Adrian Williams cemented himself in the Deion Menzies Medal lead adding another bag of five to his total. Scott Miller and Harrison Hunkin were solid and the Sharks were best served by local juniors Cooper McGill, Matty Warren, and Ryan McCallum.
KJ and Huddy’s Kenmore rebounded from their one-point loss to Bond last week with a good 21-point win over the Carrara Saints.
Next week both Kenmore and Victoria Point are headed down the highway, with Kenmore taking on Coomera and the Sharks playing Burleigh.
In QFA Division 2 North Teejay’s Wynnum Vikings lost to Moreton Bay by 66-points and Post Malone’s Alex Hills defeated Redcliffe by 25-points.
There will be some Redland bragging rights up for grabs this week with Sherwood taking on Broadbeach in the QAFL and Noosa taking on Coorparoo in Division 1.
