Beaudesert Kingfishers match reports

Round 4 saw the Australian Modular Homes Reserve Grade play Ormeau on Sunday and take away a convincing win of 62 - 12.

It was a big day for the Kingfishers but also for the Gee family with all 3 Gee brothers taking the field together for the first time. Coached by their father Keith Gee - Charlie, Alex and Sam certainly didn't disappoint the crowd.

The Kingies were in form from the kick off. The first half started with Jayde Williams crossing over in the first 2 minutes.

Ormeau ran the ball up hard and put the Kingies defence on notice scoring a few minutes later. The Kingies lifted their intensity and maintained it for the rest of the game.

Beaudesert lead 22 -12 at half time. The second half didn't lose any intensity and the big hits kept coming. The Kingies managed to build pressure by hanging onto the ball despite showery weather and ran away to a 62 -12 win.

Try scorers for the day were Nick Harkin, Jayde Williams, Nathan MacKenzie. Brendan MacKenzie along with Sam, Alex & Charlie Gee all scored doubles. Nick Harkin kicked 9 conversions. Next Saturday the boys take on Runaway Bay at home.

Under 17s

The Wilburs's Carpentry sponsored under 17s Kingfishers team travelled to Southport on Friday night for a 8:30 PM kick-off.

Conditions were cold and wet with a depleted Kingfisher under 17s team battling against a full strength Southport side. The Kingfishers went down to Southport by 36 points to 6.

The Kingfishers only try was scored in the second half by Callum Grimes and it was converted by Elijah Walker.

Thank you to all players and parents who traveled to Southport for the game.

Under 16s

Beaudesert Gelita under 16's traveled to Helensvale Friday night. The first half was full of uncompleted sets allowing Helensvale to have a majority of ball possession.

They were able to race out to a 24 points to nil lead. With good lead up work just before half time Clinton Williams crashed over to score Beaudesert's first try, converted by Arran Davies.

The second half was again riddled with errors letting Helensvale improve their lead 42 points to 6 and just before full time Ben Smith scooted through a gap and reached out to score under the post, converted by Arran Davies. Final score Helensvale 42 Beaudesert 12.

The score doesn't reflect the effort all the players put in on the night and also a big thanks to the under 15's Jason, Lachie, Cooper and Ryan for backing up to help the Gelita under 16's.

Under 15s

Beaudesert Gelita under 15s won Friday night 22 to 20 in the last minute of the game at Helensvale.

The first half saw Jacob Currie score the first try for Beaudesert when he snuck in beside the post which made it easy for Jason Smith to convert.

Takashi (Tuck) Mears took a catch from a kick off and made a great 60 m dash down field, then off loaded to Jason then onto Lachlan Nugent who backed up brilliantly.

Half-time had Beaudesert trailing 16 to 6. A try by Cooper Garnett and converted by Jason started a second half fight back.

A set play from a penalty in front of the posts put Beau Best in for a try in the left corner. In the dying minutes a penalty to Beaudesert in front of the posts gave Faifili (Fili) Roberts the opportunity to make a huge push through the defence and score under the post to level the scores at 20-all.

This gave Jason the opportunity to convert and win the game 22 to 20 in the last minute.

Man of the match went to Lachlan Nugent for his powerful hit ups and relentless tackling.

Josh Hughes had a great night at full back taking a number of high balls under pressure in the slippery conditions.

Cooper Garnett, Lochie Green, Jason Smith and Ryan Archibald then backed and played up in the following match to support the under 16s to show the passion and team spirit they have for their club and sport.

Under 14s

The Learoyd Mini Diggers under 14s played Parkwood on the weekend.

After a slow start the boys got into the game and started playing some good footy.But our start and plenty of errors let us down.

It was a good effort by all boys well done, final score 16-34.

We are hoping Aaron is doing well and all is good

Under 13s

The Willis Cleaning Services under 13s hit the M1 for a top of the table clash against Currumbin.

With both teams having convincing wins in the first 3 rounds, this match was going to be a tough one.

Gus opened the score with a chip and chase on the line and grounded the ball.

With windy conditions Jayden's attempt at goal was waved away. Eagles hit back in the 15th minute with a converted try taking the lead to 6-4 in to half-time.

The second half started out strong from both teams not giving in, with Eagles getting he first points of the half.

10-6 The Kingies hit back with a barnstorming run by Rhys to score out wide and Kane brought the score to 10-all. 

Another quick try to the Eagles had them in front 14-10, with the job still on the boys kicked it up a gear with a Hunter and Alex both scoring tries off some great ball running and quick hands, Jayden converted 1 of the 2 tries bring the final score 20-14.

The team worked tirelessly making tackle after tackle. Joint Man of the Match going to Hunter and Gus who were both strong in defence.

Great game played by the Scott Bannan Concreting U10s today beating Burleigh Gold 9-1. Well Done to all who played.

The Haack logistics under 9s black travelled to Burleigh to play the Burleigh Bears.

Although the boys didnt come away with the win they competed very well during the whole game against a strong team.

This weeks two man of the match awards went to Blake Harris-Dean for making strong runs up the middle while being one of the smaller fowards on the field and also to Robert Charnock for his powerful runs and his 100% effort in all areas of the game.

 The Rabar U9's blue team travelled to Burleigh today for round 4.

Burleigh started the game strongly scoring in the first minute of the game.

From then the Kingies pulled together and their defensive effort as a team for the rest of the game was outstanding.

The boys should all be proud of their efforts today, their coaching staff certainly are. Man of the match awards went to Isaia Evile and Clancy Hardy for their tireless efforts in defence.

Try scorers for today were Clancy Hardy, Riley Wells crossed over twice and Ryder Tyson scored a hat trick. Thanks to Blake and Riley from under 9s black for filling in for us at short notice today.
