A big thanks also to Matt Gee and the under 7 Black team for their tunnel at the start of our game - the Blue team loved it.
Under 9s Black
Today the Haack Logistics under 9s black team hosted the Parkwood Sharks.
It was a very even match for the whole game with both sides going try for try.
Unfortunately for Beaudesert Parkwood got the last try to get the win.
The coaches’ awards today went to Tony for running on to the ball hard and getting us moving forward and to Antwan for his great hands and reliable hard defensive work.
Beaudesert Security under 11s hosted a depleted Parkwood team who only had nine players, and rather than playing short Beaudesert showed great sportsmanship and offered four players to Parkwood.
An entertaining game with Beaudesert outscoring Parkwood 10 tries to none.
Beau Fraser, Jase Browne, Lachlin Ferguson and Alex Gillespie all played for Parkwood and they all tested their teammates showing no mercy in attack and defence.
Second row Reuben Tyson, Hooker Luke Bostock and Fullback Drew Pardoe were instrumental in the victory.
Each making valuable meters with Prop Flynn Harris-Dean laying the platform with his direct play.
Halfback Aidan McGuire fed off the momentum instructing his forwards and executing some great set plays.

Under 14 Division 3
Today the Learoyd Digger under 14s hosted the top of the table Mudgeeraba side .
This week the team tinkered with their defensive setup.
But after a steady first half we trailed 10-8 with the Kingies starting to get on top.
The other side start to tire in the second half and Beaudesert took advantage with some good go forward, their speed men punching holes in the opposition defence.
A good team effort all round, on a sad note the team wishes Ethan a speedy recovery after a confirmed broken collarbone.
Get well soon captain courageous. But well done to the whole team the hard work will pay in the end.
The Rabar under 9s hosted Parkwood Blue on Saturday. After a two week break the team did not take long to get their defence back on track.
Parkwood's attack was strong all game throwing everything at Beaudesert but a committed team effort from the Kingies kept them to a single try.
Beaudesert's attack was strong in the middle which let the ball players spread the ball wide and the speed from the edge players proved too quick for Parkwood's defence.
Man of the match awards went to Isaia Evile and Ryder Tyson for their tireless efforts in defence.
Try scorers were Clancy Hardy (4), Isaia Evile and Riley Wells (3), Ryder Tyson (2) Spencer Kummerow and Shannon O'Leary one each.
The Kingy Kids put on a fun show to watch yesterday with Kye deciding to copy what he sees his older brothers do and attempt the goose step, laughing and fending off anyone running at him with a palm to the face and having three a side kept the boys happy to be touching the ball and making tries.
Big thanks to Matt and Reece for steering the boys and their help while coach Nick is away.
Head down to the bottom corner of main field next week to watch a game that will have you cheering and laughing at the cutest little footy stars.
