Coast under-18s produce in tac

THE Gold Coast under-18s put on one of their best performances to date in the TAC Cup, overcoming Northern Knights 13.16-94 to 10.6-66 at Carrara Stadium on Saturday morning.

It was in fact the Knights who got away to the better start, banging home a whopping 7.3-45 first quarter to the Coast's 2.1-13.

However, relentless pressure form the Coast boys turned the tables in the second term, holding the visitors to 1.1-7, 2.0-12 and 0.2-2 in the remaining three stanzas, while their forwards fired.

The result moves Guy McKenna's men into sixth spot of the ladder, just one win shy of a top three berth and six points clear of missing out on finals football.

Elsewhere, the Tweed Coast Tigers were unable to extend their winning streak out to four, going down 13.13-91 to 9.7-61 to Lismore in their Summerland AFL clash at Pottsville, while further south Byron defeated Nimbin 22.10-142 to 5.8-38.
