THE Trend Interiors Carpet Court AFL Capricornia 2005 has turned into a three-team race.
Glenmore, BITS (Boyne Island Tannum Sands) and Brothers are the teams in premiership contention with fourthplaced Yeppoon needing a miracle to revive their season.
At Rockhampton's Victoria Park on Saturday Brothers destroyed the Yeppoon Swans 39-12-246 to 7-3-45.
Not surprisingly, all of Brothers' best players featured in their forward line, with the exception of midfielder Scott Smithwick. Clint Ennis was unstoppable up front, booting 12 goals.
Brothers player/coach Steve Smithwick said he did not say anything special to his team at quarter time, but they just came out with everyone running.
"Our defence was excellent and everyone was switched-on all day,'' Smithwick said.
"Hopefully that win will give them more confidence in their abilities.
"It was tough for Yeppoon, but to their credit they didn't give up.''
Brothers still had five regular players out. These two teams are likely to meet again in five weeks in the minor semifinal.
Points ? Glenmore 40, BITS 36, Brothers 28, Yeppoon 20, CQU Panthers 4, Gladstone 4.
Round 12 (July 16) ? Glenmore v BITS (Stenlake Park), Brothers v Gladstone (Victoria Park), Yeppoon v CQU Panthers (Swan Park).
