Round 7 Match Review

Round 7 Match Review

Last Saturday at the Logan Metro we hosted an exciting triple header and walked away with a clean sweep on home turf. 

Mal Meninga played Mackay Cutters in a close clash on Saturday. Mou Taumaletila-Maulolo scored within the first minute giving Souths a hopeful outlook in the first half. Mackay lead 12-10 at half time but Souths managed to score twice more to walk away with a 20-16 victory in their final game. Although it isn't the result we hoped for, we are proud of their effort this season.

Our BMD side ran out against the Tigers feeling confident following two consecutive wins. Jasmine Solia kicked off the game with a try in the 8th minute. The girls lead at half time with Evania Pelite scoring her first of two tries in the 29th minute. Souths secured their third consecutive win with a 24-14 defeat over the Brisbane Tigers. 

Preceding our Hostplus Cup match we hosting an Anzac Ceremony, where we paid our respects to those affected and who continue to be effected by war conflict. We were honoured to have return Serviceman Charlie walk out the boys and read the ode. Both Australian and New Zealand national anthems were performed y Marsden State High School student Selina. 

HPC took on the formidable Mackay Cutters who lead the competition in Round 7. Kienan Power-Tempest made his debut on Saturday night, starting his HPC career with a bang scoring two tries. Souths took the lead early on in the first half but Mackay closed the gap leading into the final 10 minutes with only 8 points separating the teams, before Blake Mozer got over the line to secure Souths' 46-32 victory.

It was an excellent show for the Souths home crowd to see a clean sweep for all teams.
