After Week 8 was tumultuous with expected results not being in line with our predictions, it most definitely made our teams go out with a new found attitude to rectify their “off” week.
Q7’s gave it their all and their effort prevailed. Division 5 – Section 2 took on Hamilton for a second time during the competition and coincidently got the same overall rinks and score as last time, minus the shots. That puts our Division 5 just two points behind the competition leader in Section 2, Beenleigh. Who they will play this weekend at the Muddies home turf.
Division 6 – Section 4 went against Mt Gravatt and really went out to show the rest of the sections in Division 6 why they are capable of anything when they also got the same result as their Round 1 previous engagement – 10 to 0. Putting them 12 points ahead of the Magpies with only a couple of rounds to go.
Division 6 – Section 5 had a great game against Logan, in which they ALSO got the same result as their first round match up against the same team, 10 – 0. With only a single point between them and the top of the ladder Macleay Island, the last couple of weeks are imperative!
The Men’s Championship Pairs went through their Semi Final with a magnificent effort by all involved, especially those who backed up their Q7’s wins by playing the very next day!
The Grand Final will be a diamond in the rough! One of the clubs best leads – Graeme Geary partnered with one of our coaches – John McMahon VS a pair of tried and tested veterans; Ray Collins & Clint Sheldon it will shape up to be the be all and end all & a game you DO NOT want to miss! This game has been subject to change and will be played at 1:00PM Wednesday the 8th of March.
As far as some club news goes, we are still looking for some more entries to our inaugural St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th of March!
