Hogan steers boys to victory


? ROCKHAMPTON'S Nathan Hogan displayed all the class of a Queensland touch football representative at Cyril Connell fields yesterday.

The Emmaus College star was at his attacking best on day one of the State Secondary Schools Open Touch Football Championships in Rockhampton.

Hogan helped steer the Capricornia boys team to opening round wins over Peninsula 5-4 and Sunshine Coast 3-1.

However, the home side tasted defeat at the hands of North West 5-4 in their final game yesterday.

Capricornia face Northern ? the only unbeaten team in the boys draw ? and Metropolitan North in their final pool games this morning before the finals action starts later today.

The Capricornia girls team also opened their campaign with two wins and one loss yesterday.

Leading the Capricornia charge was Emmaus College's Amie Rothery, who joined the scorers in Capricornia's 3-2 victory against Sunshine Coast and 7-1 thrashing of North West.

Capricornia lost 6-2 to Wide Bay, who are one of three undefeated girls teams, along with South Coast and Wide Bay.

Capricornia take on Darling Downs and Northern today.

The finals action continues tomorrow, with the girls trophy final at 12.10pm and boys decider at 1pm.
