Glasshouse District Rugby League champions!
This year, the Rugby League Development Cup for Years 6 and 7 was played at Beerwah Bulldogs RLFC, where four teams (GCCC, Elimbah SS, Glasshouse SS, Maleny SS) gathered to play in a series of 20-minute games.
GCCC were undefeated throughout the three games. Each game consisted of a tight score line and was a tough contest. Going into the final game, GCCC was up against an undefeated Glasshouse SS. Whoever was to win this game would win the district competition. The scores were 0-0 with 4 minutes to play, when a play that you could only believe would happen in the NRL, stunned the onlookers at Beerwah.
Damian Tomokino, swooped down and picked up a boot lace ball on the run from a charge down and linked up with Travis Kuijpers-Weeks who drew three opposing defenders and passed inside to Alex Smith who sprinted 40 meters to score the match winning try! Absolutely breathtaking!
Each player played with great strength and agility, with special mention to Nick Dwan, Damian Tomokino and Patrick McKenzie who were wonderful in defence and attack. GCCC’s best defensive player was Beau Howard who captained the side, and our best attacking player was Mark Kennedy who scored three tries on the day.
GCCC will now play St Peter’s Catholic School in the next tier of the competition on Tuesday. Good luck boys!
