We travelled to Southport on Saturday morning to play Southport White, in a very competitive game of football.
Coomera for the total 4 quarters matched Southport in every facet, showing great spirit and determination towards the ball and applied pressure from the start with our tackling and attack on the ball.
The main things that came out from this game is that we have to work on picking up the opposition players and our kicking. The most pleasing things to come out of this game is how we never gave up and fought it out right to the end and scored more in the last quarter than the previous three quarters of the game.
From a coach's view point it is so pleasing to see our team never drop their heads and show a great never give in attitude well done.
Our awards this week went to Chayce and Luka who both took some great marks and plenty of hard ball gets. You both gave 100% for the whole game, well done boys your effort this week was awesome.

The team played their first game under lights against Carrara Saints at their home ground on Friday. They walked away with a very convincing display by all and controlled the game from start to the end .
From the first quarter right thru to the fourth we worked hard to deliver the ball into our forward line. With determined efforts by all the players to keep the ball moving towards our forwards, whom on nearly all occasions scored goals from the efforts of the players in the centre.
The pleasing aspects to come out of this game was the team work by all and the way the forward line players shared the ball around with a lot of great handballs and fine team work, and also good to hear a lot more voices being used as well.
Great to see a lot of players scoring their first goals for the year as well, and how all the players came from all positions to congratulate those player showing great team spirit.
Overall was that we never let up on the pressure and the team work was great. Our awards this week went to Cody, Kobe and Chayce. Well done boys, you all played some great footy this week.

Well we kick off again at home against the Ormeau Bulldogs with a fine effort by all involved. We started slow in the first quarter, but started to move the ball well in the second quarter with some great work done at the centre ball up, with the boys breaking clear from the centre to drive the ball into our forward line on numerous occasions, which resulted in goals on the board for us.
Going into half time the team was full of confidences and continued their strong play in the third quarter, what was pleasing was the tackling and way our players where bursting away from their opposition, some great foot speed.
The fourth quarter continue the same way with whole team showing that they wanted to finish the game on a strong note and worked hard and led the way over their opposition, well done everyone. We had a new player join us in Isabella, who for her first run did a great job, well done Isabella. Overall fine team effort to come from behind and win the next three quarters.
Award winners this week were Tiernan Brennan and Tysin Taylor.
