Footy Returns from Holiday Slumber
Early days yet - and we will update scores etc... as we can - but early reports are that our Under 8's bounced back from their 3 weeks off without looking rusty at all!
Our Under 10's also looked hungry for the ball after mastering in Ipad studies for 21 days and our Under 6's played a ripper at Maroochydore to continue the wonderful development of this super team
Our Under 11's headed to Palmwood to play Nambour/Glasshouse and aquitted themselves really well on the big deck.
From Coach Andrew:
A cold windy day 10 goal win to the Coolum Breakers u11s - after a 3 week break and a solid training session saw the boys come together as a strong united team against the combined Nambour - Glasshouse side at Palmwoods.
Captain Will displayed great speed & courage with the ball and together with Sam & Zander got the side a quick first goal against the wind in a close hard fought first quarter. Q2 saw us kicking with the wind and Jack starred kicking 3 goals in a row. Zander chimed in with a great goal to put us in front by 5 goals at half time.
The third quarter was close with Zac, Brody & Elijah playing smart footy in defence. Beau & Zen were awarded for getting the ball & tackling hard. Mick was great taking some strong marks and playing attacking footy. Baxter playing at full forward kicked a sensational goal against the wind.
In the last quarter Hudson played in the centre and assisted with Sam & Connery in driving long to our forwards. Max starred kicking a bag of 4 goals including one on his left foot. The last play of the day went to the speedy skills of Noah & Mick.
The boys sang the team song loud & proud much to the enjoyment of family & friends. It was a great game of footy with lots of improvement from both sides.
Goals: Max 4, Jack 3, Sam, Zander, Baxter, Mick
Best: Zander, Zac, Max, Jack, Sam, Mick, Connery
A big GET WELL to Lachie who we missed today nd we hope blood tests show that its just a super bad case of Man Flu.

13's were at home against the Caloundra Predators and did what they had to in their quest for a finals spot - a strong 50 to 14 win to Coolum - well done
They were a bit depleted with heaps of boys out sick so only played 15 on 15 which showed their depth and grit
Joel Sidney – who played an absolute blinder!

In the Under 15's our Breakers were missing their State duo, and whilst outscoring top side Caloundra in the second half, they still fell short by 25 points
