Brisbane Valley Rattlers AFC

Div 4 South: Brisbane Valley 62 (24, 31, 39, 62) – 52 (13, 34, 52, 52) Coomera

Brisbane Valley Rattlers were back on their home deck on Friday night against Coomera Magpies. The local fans braved the cold to cheer on the injury and illness depleted Rattlers on, as they kicked away in the first quarter with four unanswered goals until some poor discipline awarded the Magpies two free kicks in front of goals. The Magpies came out strong in the second quarter to lead by 3 points into half-time.

Riding their wave of momentum, Coomera kicked an early goal to start the third quarter and the Rattlers lost the premiership quarter. Down 13 points, Rattlers Assistant Coach Rex Watts gave the boys a well deserved spray.

The backline held the Magpies scoreless in the final quarter with the ever reliable Jye Cruff pushing deep to take intercept marks. Tyson West in his first year of footy displayed incredible toughness with a State of Origin like performance. Josh Spicer dazzled in dreadlocks to get the hard inside ground ball. Jake Carusso got his hands on the footy and executed great decision making under pressure. Abram Cox stepped up with his move into the midfield, but it was the speedy work of Dane Bird-Smith and Paul Darcy off the half-forward line that got the ball forward for the Rattlers to kick 23 unanswered points.


Lockyer Veterans Cricket

Over 50s June 1st:

Brisbane Red 4/196; Lockyer 8/150

Over 60s. 8th June, Lockyer v Brisbane Red at Ropehill.

Under sunny skies, but with a cool breeze, Brisbane Red won the toss and had no hesitation in batting first on an excellent looking Ropehill pitch.

An early wicket saw Brisbane Red at 1/19, and despite some good bowling and fielding from Lockyer, the Brisbane innings continued at 4 runs per over to be 1/57 at drinks after 15 overs. The Lockyer bowlers were able to contain the visitor’s batsmen in the next 15 overs to have them at 5/106 after 30 overs.

A fine performance from Nev Maroske, with 4/21 from 8 overs, saw Brisbane contained to a gettable 8/164 after 45 overs. Gary Hughes chipped in with 2/29 from 8 overs.

The Lockyer innings started rapidly with Ash Teske taking 12 runs from the second over, but his innings was unfortunately cut short soon after. David Ross was unfortunate to fall to a freak catch which had rebounded off a fielder’s foot.

The Lockyer innings continued steadily, led by Peter Webb (33 not out from 51 balls), managing to keep up with the required run rate despite losing wickets at regular intervals.

Some late hitting from Nev Maroske (27 from 47 balls) and Gary Rule (12 from 20 balls) gave Lockyer a chance to record their second win of the season, but Lockyer fell 15 runs short, finishing all out for a season high score of 149.

The next game on Saturday 22nd June sees Lockyer Over 60s travel to Kingsthorpe to take on Toowoomba.
