Three teams feast on goals
IT WAS a case of goals, goals and more goals for three teams in the Trend Interiors Carpet Court AFL Capricornia league on Saturday.
Brothers, Glenmore and BITS ? the three teams considered the contenders for this year's premiership ? piled on 77 goals between them while it was a long day for their respective opponents.
One team desperately searching for some form with their finals campaign only two rounds away is the Yeppoon Swans, who will finish in fourth place this season.
Young Swans full forward Jacob McLuskie, 17, would love his team's fortunes to change drastically, but he's not holding his breath.
"I don't think it will get too much better this year, but hopefully they'll be more committed next year,'' McLuskie said.
"It's not great on the young guys.''
McLuskie is just making the most of the remainder of this season with hopes of moving to Brisbane next year to continue his football.
This year's finalists were pummelled by 145 points against the BITS (Boyne Island Tannum Sands) Saints at Boyne Oval on Saturday.
The Swans were forced to field the same teams in both the A and Reserve grade contests.
McLuskie was still recovering yesterday after pushing sickness aside to play, even if he could only handle playing at full forward.
"I'm not sure what the problem is ? it's happened the last couple of years,'' he said.
"There's a solid group of about 10 players who always turn up for training and games.''
Points ? Glenmore 48, BITS 40, Brothers 36, Yeppoon 20, CQU Panthers 8, Gladstone 4.
Round 14 (July 30) ? CQU Panthers v BITS (RCG), Yeppoon v Gladstone (Swan Park), Brothers v Glenmore (Victoria Park).
