Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds and Matt Hammelmann starred in Morningside’s 80-point win over local rivals Mt Gravatt at the Vultures home ground – Dittmer Park, on Saturday.
Bertoli-Simmonds dominated on the half-back, and Hammelmann who now leads the QAFL Leading Goalkicking for the year, kicked eight.
He is not leading the prestigious Deion Menzies Medal though after Adrian Williams kicked nine-goals for the Victoria Point Sharks on the weekend and leads Hammer by three goals.
Reuben William kicked two goals and Matt McGannon also played very well for the Panthers.
Harrison Gobbie and Tom Matthews showed glimpses in what must be said was a tough day at the office for the Vultures.
Despite, the loss Luke O’Sullivan continued his great form for the Vultures and remains on top of the Cody Fullarton Cup after receiving 5-votes for his performance.
The Cody Fullarton Cup is not in the bag though for Luke, with Jack Rolls set to come back this week and Scott Miller breathing down his neck after a great game for Victoria Point on Saturday.
The Sharks led by Phil Carse, Scott Miller and Harrison Hunkin were way too strong for Coomera, winning by 181-points.
Adding to Willo’s nine, Harrison Kerr kicked six and Aaron Christensen kicked four goals.
The win sees them head back to second place with a road-trip to Carrara this week to finish the home-and-away season.
Kailem Baker is now equal second in the Cody Fullarton Cup after he was named as the Bears best in their 46-point victory over Burleigh, who before this week were on top of the QFA Division 2 South Laddder.
Jarrod Huddy played well for Kenmore as well.
Kenmore are now third, behind the Sharks on percentage and this week they travel to Coolangatta-Tweed who are currently on top of the ladder.
In the QAFL, Clay Cameron kicked three goals for Broadbeach in their big 94-point win over Maroochydore, and Perry Lewis-Smith who was named in Surfers Paradise best players kicked two goals in the Demons 3-point over Wilston Grange.
This week, Surfers will play the Magpies, at Sherwood which is a very important game for both sides if they want to play finals this year.
In QFA Division 1, Jamie Ivers kicked a goal for Mayne in their 149-point win over UQ.
This week Mayne play Jack Wratten’s Coorparoo who will be looking to rebound after their 2-point loss to Springwood.
Also, in QFA Division 1 over the weekend, Will O’Dwyer kicked four goals in Noosa’s 49-point win over Aspley, and Mav Pettigrove kicked one.
In QFA Division 2 Noth, Teejay kicked a goal for Wynnum in the Viking’s 26-point loss to Hinterland.
