Gold Coast Round 4 wrap up
Teams get a week off until Round 5 (May 15), as the Gold Coast Vikings take on Brisbane and Ipswich in a representative carnival at Brother Seery Oval in Ipswich. Last weekend’s game and score wraps are listed below.
Runaway Bay Seagulls 28 def Currumbin Eagles 24
A tight game for the match of the round clash between the Seagulls and Eagles. It was a great display of football as the teams were neck and neck 10-10 at halftime. After halftime, the Seagulls came out with three tries to take the lead and the Eagles had to play catch up for the rest of the game. Although narrowly missing out on a win in the end, the Eagles put up a fight to shorten the score gap, however time eventually ran out for the Eagles.
Runaway Bay 28 (Jarred Marina, Matthew Gandy, Falani Arkell, Ben Puia, Vili Tuli; Steve Tolo 4 goals) def Currumbin 24 (Ken Allison, Logan Geyer, Keda Molyan, James Griffiths, Jarrod Gill; Braiden Evans 2 goals) at Galleon Way.
Burleigh Bears 48 def Ormeau Shearers 14
With a significant lead at halftime, the Bears did not show any signs of slowing down during the second half. Great usage of the field and team work was exhibited by last year’s A Grade premiers. As usual, Ormeau showed great strength amongst the forwards and direction from hooker Ricardo Parata. As the game got heated, the Bears took a significant lead to then comfortably take another win.
Burleigh 48 (Jason Bradfield 2, Fred Kiel, Dylan Pelo, Chris Law, Kelly Tate, Anthony Gray, Daymeric Pelo, Harry Hughes; Daniel Schwass 5 goals, Carne Rhodes 1 goal) Def Ormeau 14 (Jade Gage-Nepia, Reece Janson, Ricardo Parata; Carlo Putaranui 1 goal) at Brien Harris Oval.
Tugun Seahawks 26 def Southport Tigers 22
Tugun Seahawks remain undefeated as they held off the Tigers. Minutes into the game, the Tigers scored and converted the first try, but this only forced Tugun to bring their “A” game right back with a try to put some points on the board.
An error by the Seahawks allowed Tigers centre Troy Leo to pick up a loose ball and score a length of the field try. A well-timed pass from Tu Whaktiki to centre Jabe Gamble saw another try. The teams went back-and-forth and exhibited some competitive football, with only one try separating them in the end as Tugun won 26-22.
Tugun 26 (Eden Hogg 2, Timi Matenga, Jabe Gamble, Joe Uteria; Reece Worboys 2 goals, Grayson Te Kiri) def Southport 22 (Kane Rudolph 2, Troy Leo, Regan Muir Ogle; Regan Muir Ogle 1 goal, Corey Griffiths 1 goal, Nathan Wilson 1 goal) at Boyd Street.
Tweed Head Seagulls 30 def Bilambil Jets 0
The Jets had a fight on their hands when they faced the undefeated Tweed Head Seagulls. The Seagulls showed their control for the majority of the game as they scored the first try minutes into the match. The Jets were given no opportunity as the Seagulls defensive line was strong and showing no signs of weakness. Honourable mention goes to Seagulls winger Nat Barnes who scored a hat-trick, contributing to the 30-0 win against the Jets.
Tweed Heads 30 (Nat Barnes 3, Tim Cassidy, Tevita Folau, James Woods, Jackson Clarke; Jacob Garland 1 goal) def Bilambil 0 at Bilambil Spots.
