BEAUDESERT Kingfishers rugby league club is celebrating after its open women's and men's teams scored wins at weekend fixtures.

Club president Matt Haack said the victories showed the potential of the club's senior sides to achieve excellence on the field.

He said the wins also pointed to the teams ability for future success. "Both our senior sides had brilliant wins on the weekend," he said. "Both sides showed great promise for the season ahead."

Beaudesert Kingfishers open women's side scored a 48-0 victory against Mudgeeraba on Saturday, April 13.

Mr Haack said the team had worked hard to attract old and new players to the team, entering a side of 17 players to compete.

He said the ladies worked well to force the Mudgeeraba ladies into making mistakes. They had led the game with a great defense.

"What a game the ladies played," Mr Haack said. "The Kingy ladies worked well as a team, they showed great enthusiasm and willingness. There was good encouragement and sportsmanship shown on and off the field by all the Kingfisher ladies."

Mr Haack said he was just as impressed by the Beaudesert Kingfishers senior men's side victory of 42-10 against Capalaba.

The boys had kept up the pressure on the opposing side to force errors and earn game victory. "The game kicked of with the Beaudesert boys keen to get on the winning board," Mr Haack said.

"Still disappointed from their loss the previous week, they started off with scoring in the first ten minutes, with Micheal Fairhead scoring in the corner and Baydon Paulson converting to start of well."

Mr Haack said skipper Ted Kerwin had led the team well to victory. The side had played with a tough defense to force the opposing team to make errors and score two more tries before the break.

"Following a good half time lead, the scoring continued with two tries to Scott Avery and other single tries to members of the team," he said.

Mr Haack said the lads would play against the Mustangs on Saturday, April 27 after the Easter break.

All teams would play away games on Saturday, April 27 followed by home games for the club on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4.
