Great win and show of character by the U15's versus Pomona/Gympie today.
The U15's travelled to Gympie to play. They had great weather for footy and some great efforts from the boys kept the team in the hunt at quarter time with Coolum-Jets having more entries into the forward 50 but being down by 10 points in a fierce contest.
Second quarter kicked off with Coolum-Jets getting in the hunt and on top in the contested ball with Joel, Rory, Declan, Jackson, Eamon, Aris, Jayden, Dash, Byron and Louis running continually and applying pressure, run and skill from the packs. Our forwards started to get into the groove with Xavier leading strongly, forcing Pomona to put two or three players on him whenever he contested the ball with forwards Andrew, Nathan, Declan and Ben contesting the ball on the ground closing the gap to a few points at half time and getting on top in the game.
With the game to be won, after half time break, the forwards led by Xavier, started to benefit from his contests and the backline dominance and run, with Xavier, Aris, Jack and Andrew kicking goals and putting pressure on the scoreboard.

Big Declan, after some great half time advise from Gary started to collect clean ball and repeatedly motored forward with numerous entries into our fifty.
