Jets dig deep in defence
THE Bilambil Jets had to work hard to down nemesis side Ormeau 40-16 in their round 12 encounter at Bilambil yesterday.
With the clash shifted to the Bilambil Juniors ground due to the state of the senior's field, the Jets were pushed by a tenacious Ormeau side and only took control of the match in the final 20 minutes.
After suffering a surprise loss to Ormeau in the first round, Bilambil coach Troy McCarthy was looking for his players to remain focused and stick to the game plan.
“Ormeau just kept coming at us all day so we had to dig deep in defence,” McCarthy said.
“It was a solid physical game and a good one to have at this stage of the season to keep us in touch with the competition leaders.”
In the lower grades, Bilambil enjoyed a clean sweep downing Ormeau 52-8 and in under 19s running riot 60-0.
South Tweed played Runaway Bay in lower grades, going down in both with their reserves losing 42-12 and their under 19s defeated 36-24.
In other A grade games, Hinterland downed Runaway Bay 34-24, Southport overcame Parkwood 40-16, Tugun thumped Currumbin 66-32 and Burleigh defeated Beaudesert 24-16.
