Lions give Buderim a real hosing
FOOTBALL: THE local fire chief may be walking down Langura St to the Lions' Den to look for recruits when he hears of their ladder- climbing exploits.
Nearly half way through the season and Noosa has climbed to the top of the ladder in reserve, third and fourth grade men's competitions and the first-grade side is sitting just one rung below.
Consolidating their second spot Noosa's premier men gave Buderim the biggest hosing down in the history of clashes between the two clubs.
"It's a hard task to bring three points home from Buderim,” Noosa coach Kevin Aherne-Evans said.
"But the boys lit up the field and put in an awesome demonstration of attacking football”.
"Coming away with a 9-0 score line is something special against our traditional rivals, a victory the club will dine on for years to come.”
A philosophical Buderim goal keeper and Cooroy local, Jacob Brown, after the match was keen to point out that "last week we were only the second team this season to beat ladder front-runners Maroochydore. This week we just didn't turn up.”
Matt Thompson notched up his second hattrick of the season but there were quality performances across the field.
With six wins, one draw and only one narrow 1-0 defeat, the club also enjoyed a successful day at home in the under 12-U17 junior competitive games.
The Sunshine Coast Football Association put on an innovative North versus South representative carnival. Noosa players featured in many of the northern sides with impressive displays in both the boys' and girls' matches.
