TWO of Morningside’s favourite adopted sons will return home for a huge QAFL Velocity Sports Cup clash on Saturday night.
Twins Josh and Sam Brown (pictured ) were recruited by the Panthers from Cairns Centrals five years ago and fly north for the round 10 promotional match against the Northern Territory Thunder at Cazalys Stadium.
The Panthers sit on top of the premiership but are only one game clear of fourth-placed Thunder, who have won their last four games.
Sam has been close to Morningside’s best-performed player at finals time over the last three years and was in good touch last weekend.
Playing against the bottom-placed Western Magpies, Brown produced several electrifying runs, including one where he ran, bouncing the ball from the wing to the forward pocket, and saw his shot at goal from 25m hit the post.
He finished with 2.2 for the game and had a hand in numerous others, while his brother ran amok in the last quarter.
Josh booted three goals for the quarter and was a real livewire in his second game for the season.
The fleet-footed duo are the perfect combination to pit against a Northern Territory outfit that is full of speed.
The Thunder demolished Broadbeach in Darwin by 82 points, although it paled against the 148-point hiding Morningside dished out to the Magpies.
The 27.21-183 to 5.5-35 victory was the perfect way for Jarrod Price and Hayden Wilson to celebrate the milestone of 100 games for the club.
Panthers development manager Jack Barry said: “Jarrod is a very relaxed person to be around and he has played a prominent role with the likes of David Lillico, Jacob Gough, Glenn Conroy, Nick Clark, Hayden Wilson and Kent Abey in the success of this football club.
Wilson reached the 100-game milestone last week in the match against Southport.
It topped off a great day for the Panthers who continue to do good things in the community by staging their succsessful "Pink Panthers Ladies Day". The crowd was bolsterd by the large number of women turning up to the event.
