WATCH REPLAY: TOWNSVILLE v IPSWICH (men): 3-0 WIN FOR TOWNSVILLE
A cold wind whistled across Toowoomba Hockey Association headquarters this morning, but nothing could deter the men from the north in its day 2 Pool A clash against Ipswich.
Even Townsville keeper David Rogers shed his jumper at halftime as the boys from the far North warmed to the occasion, winning 3-nil.
Mark Beamish's goal just minutes into the second half lifted Townsville to 3-nil and the north Queensland side were on its way to victory.
Beamish capitalised on excellent lead-up work by Liam McKay whose weaving run and well timed pass gave Beamish every chance to score.
Only tremendous goal keeping by Ipswich's Cade Banditt prevented Townsville extending the lead after he twice defended penalty corners in the fourth quarter.
But while Ipswich restricted Townsville to three goals, they found it hard to score themselves.
Earlier Townsville opened the scoring on day two of the championship after indirectly scoring from a penalty corner.
It was the first substantial opportunity either team had in the game, and was well taken by Bayden Buchanan who let rip from the right hand side of the goals.
Ipswich's first half chance came when Ryan Smith lobbed a pass forward for Nathan Smith, but the Townsville defence scrambled.
One goal then became two for Townsville when Ashton Spaulding delivered a short, crisp pass to Cody Rintala whose reserve handed effort beat the Ipswich keeper Cade Banditt.
But Banditt got one back on Rintala when he successfully defended Rintala's attempted conversion of his goal. Townsville led 2-nil.
Ipswich's best chance came when Michel Hayden fired a cannon high and to the left of the Townsville keeper David Rogers, but Rogers was up to the task with a reflex save.
WATCH REPLAY: TOWNSVILLE V BRISBANE (women): 4-0 WIN FOR BRISBANE
On field two, the Brisbane women's team defeated Townsville 4-nil.
Lucy Lannigan scored early and late, and around her Talicia Canty was among the gals again along with Rhyleigh Brown.
WATCH REPLAY: BRISBANE v MACKAY (men): 9-1 WIN FOR BRISBANE
Mackay gave Brisbane a scare but in the end the championship favourites prevailed 9-1 this morning.
Mackay's Reegan Green threw a catch among the pidgeon's with a goal in the 35th minute which had the Mackay bench in an uproar. The goal reduced Brisbane lead to 2-1.
Mackay dug deep, making unbeaten Brisbane work overtime for a result across the match.
A goal and subsequent conversion by Brisbane's Joel Rintala seven minutes later gave Brisbane a little breathing space by 4-1, but it was a great contest until Brisbane got away from their rivals in the final quarter.
Another goal by Rintala, and then to Hugh Pembroke and Matthew Shaw - all in the fourth quarter - made the Brisbane win seem comfortable
The desperation of Brisbane to quell Mackay's push for an upset was emphasised in the third quarter by the bravery of Brisbane defender Matthew Rutter who twice charged Mackay as they were firing off penalty corner attempts.
Once Rutter wore the ball flush, but undeterred he charged even more aggressively to harass Mackay's second penalty corner attempt.
Mackay hustled and scrambled, marked up closely and tried to take Brisbane out of their comfort zone.
It would have been a relief to the Brisbane bench to watch Cooper Cabot finally break through 24 minutes into the match, scoring and then adding a conversion to elevate Brisbane to 2-nil by halftime.
WATCH REPLAY: TOOWOOMBA 1 VS TOOWOOMBA 2 (women): 4-1 WIN FOR TOOWOOMBA 1
On field 1, the local derby between the two Toowoomba women's teams was played.
Toowoomba 2 were also on track for an upset when Tannah Hood scored the first goal in the second quarter.
But Toowoomba 1 hit back with goals by Amber Suey, Tatum Stewart and Holly Gilbar and in the end eased to a 3-1 win.
WATCH REPLAY: FRASER COAST v TOOWOOMBA 2 (men): 11-0 WIN FOR FRASER COAST
James Easton scored four goals as Fraser Coast triumphed in an 11-nil victory at the Hockey Queensland Championship.
Easton got Fraser Coast off to a golden start when a sixth minute goal, then added another in the second quarter off Chappell Carter's stick.
Easton also scored in the second and again in the third and fourth quarters as Fraser Coast rose to an unbeatable position.
With a name like Chappell, Carter Chappell should probably have been playing cricket, but nevertheless his hand-eye coordination was spot on when he slammed home a goal after Blake Kroning had fired him a pass.
Carter then converted his goal to make it 3-nil, beating the keeper in a one-on-one.
Fraser Coast had rebounded up the field after successfully defending a penalty corner.
WATCH REPLAY: TWEED BORDER V GOLD COAST (women): 5-1 WIN FOR GOLD COAST
On Field No. 2, Tweed Border's women scored first in it's local derby clash with cross border rivals Gold Coast - but then lost 5-1.
Gillian Morris nailed her goal just nine minutes for Tweed, but a second quarter field goal from Ailish Mahony and subsequent conversion - rebounded Gold Coast to a 2-1 advantage.
Gold Coast then extended their lead to 3-1 when Leigh Thomas scored (22nd minute), but there was still work to be done.
Natasha Patricks (third quarter) and Tinesha Carey (fourth quarter) then polished things off for the coast.
WATCH REPLAY: TOOWOOMBA 1 V SUNSHINE COAST: 11-0 WIN FOR TOOWOOMBA 1
Toowoomba 1 men's outfit flexed its muscles with an 11-nil win over Sunshine Coast.
Toowoomba steadily built is victory which gathered momentum in the second when
Carter Mogg scored his fourth goal, which included a successful conversion.
Elijah Mathewson basically handed Mogg the opening goal of the game with a deft touch angled across the goal.
Such was the touch of Mathewson, the ball seemed to hang out in front of Mogg, allowing him to extend his stick and knock it into the back of the net.
Sunshine Coast goalie Adam Owers had earlier made a fantastic save when Toowoomba 1 seemed certain to score.
He had plenty of helpers in defence as well, with his teammates swarming back in the final minute of the first half as Toowoomba mounted a threatening attack.
However, just after halftime no amount of defenders or effort from Owers could prevent Josh McPaul converting a penalty corner into his team's second goal.
Owers was at it again on the cusp of halftime with a spectacular save, but not Owers or his four defenders could deny Toowoomba's after the break.
Three successive penalty corners finally yielded a result for Toowoomba when Mogg cleverly reversed his hands on the stick, helping open a narrow pathway to the goals from the left hand side of the pitch. Toowoomba led 3-nil.
WATCH REPLAY: GLADSTONE V IPSWICH: 7-0 WIN FOR IPSWICH
On field No. 2, Ipswich women scored two goals in the opening nine minutes to gain a foothold toward victory against Gladstone.
Gabrielle Nicholls' opening goal was followed by Sarah Donnolley goal as Ipswich jumped their rivals.
Georgia Stenzel then turned 2-nil into 3-nil and the Ipswich girls were up and running in pursuit of victory.
Stenzel and Nicholls then added their second goals while Abby Eleison scored her first of the match in the third quarter.
WATCH REPLAY: GOLD COAST V IPSWICH (MEN'S): 4-1 WIN FOR GC
Two goals in three minutes cracked a 1-all deadlock and put Gold Coast into the winners circle against Ipswich.
The Coast won 4-1, with a late goal by Bailey Charlesworth ensuring his side victory.
But the big moments came five minutes before the three-quarter time break when initially Coast's Daniel Pittendriegh scored from a penalty corner.
Callum Fitzpatrick had taken the initial stroke, but from the ricochet Pittendriegh got enough stick on the ball to ease into the goals.
Then Troy Cooper hit the sweet spot with a crisp strike that gave goalie Matthew West no chance - and all of a sudden it was 2-1.
Just a few minutes before the double break through by Gold Coast, the coast keeper Bailey Frost stood tall under the pressure of a penalty corner, deflecting the ball away as it came shoulder height to his left.
Had that goal gone in, it may have shifted momentum which followed away from the Gold Coast.
Earlier, as rain swept across Clyde Park, Trent Goldenstein opened the scoring for Ipswich in the 11th minute.
Despite the bleak conditions, both teams were up for the clash, exerting enthusiasm and high energy.
Gold Coast had a chance when they won a penalty corner, but Callum Fitzpatrick's placement toward the goals was blocked by a sea of defence.
There was an even better chance soon for Gold Coast after when Sam Young broke clear, but his shot went across the face of goal, with Young ending up on the flat of his stomach, such was the effort he put in.
Ben Peters defence for Ipswich must have been frustrating Gold Coast whose players probed countless times without luck.
Both with a territorial advantage came a penalty corner for Gold Coast and on this occasion the tall Fitzpatrick made no mistake on the eve of halftime, making it 1-all.
There was a enough time in the half for Fitzpatrick to have a second penalty corner attempt second before the break, but this time the post was Ipswich's friend, with the ball cannoning into the wood work and rebounding away.
WATCH REPLAY: BRISBANE V SUNSHINE COAST (WOMEN): 1-0 WIN FOR BRISBANE
On Field No.2, the Brisbane and Gold Coast women went blow for blow across the first, secnod and third quarters without a goal being scored.

A proud organisation such as Toowoomba was never going to roll over and Rocky will have to make do with a 5-1 win.

The game was off to a rollicking start, with both team's trading goals in the first quarter.

It was end to end stuff, with entertainment aplenty for the spectatots and those watching the livestream.

Townsville got one up on Mackay, beating them 5-nil in a Hockey Queensland Championship round robin match.

WATCH REPLAY: SUNSHINE COAST V TOOWOOMBA 2 (WOMEN)
Two converted goals from Annelyse Tevant and Madeline Kenny laid the platform for the Sunshine Coast women to beat Toowoomba 2.
Tevant's goal came just seven minutes into the first quarter, while Kenny got on the score sheet midway through the second quarter.
It was a strong response from the Sunshine Coast who would have been mentally and physically drained after a narrow loss to Brisbane earlier in the afternoon.
That game was effectively the Sunny Coast's grand final.
Majella Barnes' goal and a second goal to Kenny then iced the win ahead of finals day tomorrow.
WATCH REPLAY: GOLD COAST V BRISBANE (MEN): 7-3 WIN FOR BRISBANE

WATCH REPLAY: ROCKHAMPTON V TOOWOOMBA 1 (MEN): 6-1 WIN FOR TOOWOOMBA
Could Toowoomba have started any better in a grand final qualifier than they did tonight? It is unlikely.
In the first six minutes Toowoomba went bang-bang, on both occasions Elijah Mathewson finding the back of the net to give his team a 2-nil advantage after just seven minutes.
While those two goals did not win it for Toowoomba, they laid the brickwork for the 6-1 win and as a result Toowoomba will play in tomorrow's grand final against Brisbane.
The local crowd were roaring their support when Mathewson scored his first goal after about 60 seconds in a match where everything was on the line.
After Toowoomba's shock start, Rockhampton worked their way back into the match.
But a 28th minute goal to Toowoomba's Joshua Bidgood extended the home team's lead by a goal, making it 3-nil.
Rockhampton simply had to be the first team to score in the second half but it was Toowoomba's Wilson Love whose shot cannoned into the back of the goals to put his team on the road to victory leading 4-nil.
Bradley Hobay then made it five and Toowoomba could see the finish line - and a date in Monday's decider.
Rockhampton got one back in the 52 second courtesy of Simon Hope, but Toowoomba were not going to be run down.
