Young gun stars in close AFL victory



YOUNG gun Jake Mostert was outstanding as BITS scored a classic three-point win against a gallant Glenmore in their AFL Capricornia under-17 clash at Stenlake Park on Saturday.

The 10.4.64 to 9.7.61 win keeps the Saints unbeaten record intact, but didn't come without a fight.

Glenmore came out firing and slammed the first five goals of the game to lead convincingly at quarter time.

Like all good sides, BITS responded and with Mostert and Justin Mountjoy leading the way were able to peg the Bulls back.

With just moments left in the final term, BITS snatched the lead much to the chagrin of the Bulls supporters.

Troy Bartlett and Craig Shipard kicked three goals apiece for the winners.

BITS' crushing form in the under-15 competition continued with a thumping 17.14.116 to 0.3.3.

Jordan Lofts kicked seven goals in the win, with Josh Vaughan and Ren McNeil outstanding, but BITS suffered a nine-point loss in the under-13 match.

Glenmore kept the Saints scoreless until the final term in the 4.4.28 to 3.1.19 victory.

The Gladstone under-13s were the only team from the Mudcrabs to score a win against Brothers at Victoria Park.

Sam McLean proved to be the match-winner, kicking three goals in the 4.11.35 to 1.2.8 win.

Unfortunately, the Mudcrabs' under-15 and under-17 teams returned empty-handed from Rockhampton.

Brothers proved far too good scoring a 13.11.89 to 2.1.13 in the under-15 clash.

Ben Coles, Cameron O'Grady and Matthew Walker who kicked both goals were amongst the Mudcrabs best.

Meanwhile, the under-17 clash finished in favour of the Roos 9.13.67 to 2.4.16.

Five players with senior experience ? Brendon Parnaby, Joel Hinds, Nathan Parnaby, Andrew Hinds and Liam Fordham ? were named in the battling Mudcrabs' best.

And Yeppoon scored wins against CQU Panthers in their under-13 and under-15 matches at Swan Park.
