Golden end to season for Alleygator teams
PALM Beach Currumbin have stormed through to the major semi-final in all four grades after the final round of the Gold Coast and District Rugby Union competition at Bienvenue Avenue on Saturday.
The Alleygators beat Bond in all but the Colts competition to wrap up the club championship, the minor premiership in second grade and finish second in the other grades.
The club's A grade outfit beat third-placed Bond 35-12 to finish the season two points behind Nerang.
"It was okay but the boys weren't really that happy with their performance," Alleygators coach Craig Alexander said.
"I think our minds were probably more on next week's finals," he said.
The Alleygators ran in four tries through Ossie Drikibau, Ryan Kerekere, Matt Langmack and Briand McDonnell.
Palm Beach wrapped up the second grade minor premiership with a 13-5 win over Bond, who will be their opponents in next week's major semi-final.
Third grade drew with Bond 19-all, had they lost it could have put them out of the finals all together.
The Colts, who finished second, went down 22-17.
"It is great that we all made the top two. It means we can all play our finals on the same day next week," Alexander said.
Meanwhile CoolangattaTweed Barbarians ended their mixed season with a 36-19 loss to Colleges at Benowa.
It was a big turnaround for Colleges who were on the end of a 113-0 hiding from the Alleygators last week.
However, Baa Baas coach David Proctor was unconcerned with the scoreline, preferring to let his players just enjoy the game.
