Big Jimmy Ivers has shot up the Cody Fullarton Cup and Deion Menzies Medal Leader board after kicking seven goals for a best on ground performance in Mayne’s 40-point win over Coorparoo.
It was Jimmy’s biggest haul in a game with his previous best being six last year, and now sits fourth in the Cody Fullarton Medal with 17 goals.
After the game Ivers said, “It’s nice to be able to contribute and to hit some form coming into finals. We started very well and were able to hold them off. We played very well as a team, and to be able to finish the team’s hard work was very rewarding. I kicked five in the first half, and possibly could have had two goals in the last but couldn’t finish them. I was still a bit tired from filming that seat belt commercial during the week”
Mayne play Noosa next week in what will be an epic top-of-the-table clash between the two tiger outfits.
Noosa also came off a nice win on the weekend, beating Springwood by 78-points.
Seb Rogers kicked three goals and Will O’Dwyer kicked two.
In the QAFL, Hammer kicked another five goals for Morningside, meaning he now leads the QAFL Goalkicking by seven, in front of former Brisbane Lions teammate Liam Dawson.
Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds continued on his good form from last week named as one of Morningside’s best in their 52-point win over Palm Beach.
It sets up a thrilling top-of-the-table clash with Broadbeach this week, with both sides still undefeated.
Broadbeach was too good for Wilston Grange, defeating the North Brisbane club by 93-points.
Clay Cameron kicked four goals and surprisingly Stephen Mills kicked a goal from outside 20.
At Sherwood, it was a classic eight-point battle between Sherwood and Surfers Paradise with both teams playing for survival.
For Redland supporters, it was great to see Perry Lewis-Smith and Caleb Franks battling it out against each other.
Both players were named in the best players, but it was Franksy who walked away with the four-points, with Sherwood defeating Surfers by 28-points.
In QFA Division 2 South, Victoria Point Sharks have secured the minor premiership after defeating Carrara by 73-points.
Adrian Williams extended his lead in the Deion Menzies Medal kicking eight, and Scott Miller has overtaken Luke O’Sullivan in the Cody Fullarton Cup with four votes on Saturday. Chrisso and Thommo were also amongst the Sharks best.
Kenmore has finished second after they defeated Coolangatta by 11-points.
Kenmore and Victoria Point both have the week off this week before hosting Semi-Finals to see who will play in the Grand Final.
In Cairns, Peter Yagmoor played well for the Lions, but they were not good enough to beat Port Douglas, losing by 41-points.
