U10 Eumindi Dragons 27 d Noosa 24
A well organised and committed Dragons side deservedly won this game having had the majority of possession and territory throughout, especially in the second half which saw them fight back from a 17-10 deficit to score three straight tries and then hold on to take victory. Although the Fins fought hard to get back into contention, their time ran out. A hat-trick of long distance solo tries by Lockie Dudgeon was the highlight. Try scorers: Lockie Dudgeon 3, Jarrah Charlesworth.
Player of the match was Lockie Dudgeon.

Try scorers were Jackson with four, Andrew, Kye and Fynn with two each, Hunter, Bailey and Tane with one.
Player the match was Bailey.
