Coomera White Under 8.5's took on Mudgeeraba Spartans on Sunday morning.

The Spartans were a tough opponent and our Magpies stood up to the test. The Spartans started quick and took us by surprise. We quickly adjusted and showed our strength and toughness in defence and the midfield.

Our team showed heart with a couple of players taking big knocks and soldiering on. The 2nd half our Magpies started to fly and got stuck in with hard work and determination paying off to get the ball down to our talented forwards.

A special mention to this weeks award Winners Lachlan and Brax for there strength and toughness to play on through the pain. I’m so proud of the whole team and the way we stuck together and never gave up against a very slick Spartans side.

Big thank you to all the parents for coming down early on a Sunday morning. Can’t wait to get back to training and grow and improve with the group this year.
