BROADBEACH have snapped a 8 year losing streak to Palm Beach at SUBARU Oval and have beaten the Lions by 51 points. It was neck and neck all day with the Cats leading at every break and it took until the last QTR for the Cats to break Palm Beach in front of parochial crowd. Palm Beach were held scoreless in the last quarter as Broadbeach piled on 6 goals. Lucas JELLYMAN-TURNER was judged best on ground, collecting 28 disposals which included 12 marks and provided excellent on ground leadership for the playing group setting up a lot of the play. James GLEDHILL stamped his authority on the QAFL as one of the best defenders, keeping Palm Beach spearhead Jack Anthony goalless in a dominant performance. Jordan "MAYOR" MONCRIEFF continued his excellent form collecting 20 disposals and booting 6 goals. Jordan worked extremely hard running up and down the ground all day, often playing against 2 or 3 opponents at marking contests. Jordan has now kicked 41 goals in 7 games and sits on top of the Ray Hughson QAFL Goal kicking Tally. Can he crack the magical ton this season? Tyrone ARMITAGE and Max LOWER were super in the midfield again and were enabled by in form ruck man Tom BETSON. Suns academy talent Bodhi UWLAND played an excellent role down back before moving to midfield in the last QTR and providing some extra run from centre clearances. A great win for the lads, we sit on top of the ladder 8 points clear of 2nd place.

The WOMENS senior team had a big win over Kedron with skipper Rebecca GOODWIN leading the dominant win with a best on ground performance. Keeping Kedron scoreless and claiming a 79 point win to even the win/loss ledger for the girls. The mens reserves had a tough loss to Palm Beach. The boys accuracy in front of goal again proved costly. But the team will look to bounce back this week and solidify themselves in the top 6. The colts couldn't hang on against Palm Beach but are playing really well and improving each week. No doubt over the next few weeks with more academy players returning, the team will continue to strengthen before the business end of the season. The colts have been a great development pathway for the reserves and seniors so far this season with players like Hamilton HOWARD, Brayden TAYLOR, Cody HARRINGTON, and Jake ROGERS all pushing for senior selection each week.
Another home game this weekend, taking on QAFL Newcomers Redland-Victoria Point on Saturday at SUBARU OVAL.
