Taringa Summer final sees Next-Gen Untouchables, Ball Fondlers triumph

Next-Gen Untouchables, Ball Fondlers Taringa Summer Season
Next-Gen Untouchables have survived a frantic 9-minute extra time period to defeat Kickaholics Anonymous in the division one final at Taringa on Tuesday.

Aided by the return of Gerard Martin and Matt McIver, the duo combined to score the winning points and secure their side’s second consecutive title.

After dropping back to three players, it took a fortuitous cross kick by Martin to find space on the far sideline for McIver to tip-toe the dead ball line to touch down.

The final marked the third time these two teams have met and the sixth time since May last year with one point separating them on each occasion.

The quality of footy was tipped to be high and it showed early on with some end-to-end rucking to gain vital field position.

While the opportunities were scarce, the work-rate of the middles was crucial.

Player of the match Kirk Barber was relentless in defence as he showcased his non-stop attitude, while Untouchables’ Antony Martin echoed the same mentality.

Kickaholics were the first to slip up with an error in the the sixth minute of the match.

The flood gates opened with three errors in the space of one minute, despite Untouchables having the best field position of the game.

The game started to open up in the middle with Kickaholics driving the ball almost 60 metres on their rebound set.

While the challengers had a chance to jam the Untouchables’ attackers, it took just three straight rucks before a power play from 40m out.

Matt McIver started the movement, spotting numbers on the right edge to give to Gerard Martin, who kicked for himself to score from beyond 20.

Two possessions later and with a weight of possession, the team in green crossed for their second through a dump split from Luke Dudgell to captain Tammy Haydock.

Kickaholics fought back on their next possession with Eliza Mooney looked most dangerous with the ball, attacking the line with options either side.

Cam Hayes finished off the set by pouncing on a Trent Gossner grubber to get their side on the board.

With the game well and truely opening up, Lincoln Redgen capitalised on a grubber of his own two sets later to extend Untouchables lead to 4-1.

Back to back repeat sets gifted Kickaholics with ample opportunity on their opponents goal line with Isaac Toohey kicking for himself to score.

Hayes capitalised on the stroke of half time scooping up an Untouchables knock on to close the gap to 4-3.

Anticipation enveloped as both teams took the field for the second half, both eager to start on the right foot.

As the first half started, so did the second half with a strong work-rate of the middles and some conservative end-of-set plays.

A mass of possession on the goal line tested Untouchables’ defence on multiple occasions, only to hold strong.

With Gerard Martin at fullback, the short kicking game of Kickaholics was quashed, nullifying a number of players’ strengths.

Next-Gen struggled to find field possession as their opponent in blue started to turn the screws.

Their best territory came in the final five minute of the half with repeat sets gifting them time inside their opponent’s half.

A loose pass from Untouchables saw speedster Trent Gossner boot the ball down field to receive a room-service bounce and tie the match at 4-4.

As the final seconds ticked down, both teams were out on their feet.

Well done to both teams on a fantastic Taringa Summer division 1 grand final

Ball Fondlers, Taringa Tuesday Summer Season.

Ball Fondlers have won their second division two grand final in four seasons with a hard-fought 4-2 victory over Best Friends.

The experienced Kick It side was hungry from the outset scoring two tries in the opening five minutes.

A dump split from Drew MacDonald to Ross Newton got Fondlers on the board early before a grubber from captain Lachlan Cuffe helped their side skip out to an early 2-0 lead.

Despite missing the mark on their first four possessions, Best Friends hit back through Riley Wagner.

The sheer weight of possession was telling as Ball Fondlers routinely set up camp on Best Friends’ goal line.

The newcomers finally cracked, and it took a perfect wrap play from Cuffe to Jack Blyth to push the lead out to 3-1.

As the players walked out to start the second half, Best Friends knew they were close enough, if good enough.

Key possessions from Lachlan Brennan and Josh Small aided in Best Friends wrestling back momentum as they looked to attack up the middle.

However, errors in crucial situations were their achilles heel.

Ball Fondlers were able to take their opportunity with Nick Buckley combining with Robbie Mazlin to extend their lead to 4-1.

With the pressure off, a late try to Harry Clem provided a spark but it was all in vain.

Well done to both teams on a great Taringa Summer Division 2 final.

Carseldine Opens, Taringa vs Stafford Exhibition Match

Carseldine Community Day, Stafford vs Taringa
Yesterday, we celebrated the opening of the brand new sporting complex as part of the Carseldine Village Community Day.

We were the first to step out onto the fields boasting a handful of representative players from 2019 to feature in the Taringa verse Stafford exhibition match.

With plenty of the public and a number of users groups in attendance, some of Kick It’s best put on a show.

The $6.5million sport and recreation facility, features two full-sized football fields, a junior grassed field, cricket nets, tennis/basket courts, change rooms, toilets and a state of the arc playground, surrounded by over 200 car parks.

Primary users Aspley Rugby League, Bridgman Baptist Football Club and Sandgate Cricket Club all hosted their own events in a remarkable display of community unity.

Smaller groups such as the Brisbane Heat, Back Yourself Fitness, Ridgettes Netball and Matchpoint Tennis also added to the tremendous event feel.

A special thanks to GYG Chermside who have jumped on board with our Carseldine and Stafford venues for the remainder of 2020. Each Kick It player who took the field on Saturday received a GYG voucher.


Taringa vs Stafford

Carseldine Community Day, Stafford.

Not since the early 2010s have we put the best of each venue against each other in an exhibition match.

Branded the Super Grand Final in 2010, we hosted a match between the mixed champions of both Taringa and North Brisbane.

This match had a similar same feel.

With many players participating at both venues, there was some added motivation for individuals to perform.

Some faced-paced end to end footy opened the game with plenty of rucking as each team looked to grab the ascendancy early.

Stafford put points up first with a trademark show and go by Jai Lockrey who sent David Cumming over with a pin-point long ball above two defenders.

The same man would feature shortly after as a goal-line movement found numbers out wide with Dan Ebert throwing the last pass to a driving Lockery.

Lockrey crossed for his second try two sets later with a short grubber catching out a few middle defenders.

A series of poor kicks from Taringa gifted their opponent ideal field position inside their own half.

Ballerz’ combo Jess Sleep and Ben Hayes combined next with a perfect dump and split on the goal line to cross in the corner.

Matthew Allen extended his side’s lead to 6-0 after backing up Caleb Holland who busted through some sluggish  defence.

Taringa’s own John Kerr got his side on the board slicing through some retreating goal line defence moments before half time.

Carseldine Community Day - Taringa.

Kerr would double his tally early into the second half with a grubber from the wing to score.

Stafford responded minutes later through a David Cumming line break who passed off to Chloe Storm for a two point girl try.

With the momentum and field possession firmly in Stafford’s favour, it took a special play from John Kerr who intercepted Clint Wicks and raced away for his third try of the match.

Stafford would march back up the field on their next set and extend their lead to 9-3 off the boot of Ben Hayes.

A miss-kick from Ben Walker landed in the hands of Matthew Allen to streak away for his second try.

Taringa pairing Jake Harding and Antony Tatkovic linked up with a deft short kick. ‘Kicking in danger’ by the defender at the point of the grounding resulted in a rare penalty try.

Repeat sets on the goal-line enabled Stafford to extend their lead to 11-4 with a crisp ruck and split from Matthew Allen to David Cumming.

A perfect cross kick from John Kerr beat some shooting outside defence for Antony Tatkovic to stroll over for his second try.

The points kept coming as Jess Sleep put in a neat grubber for Jai Lockrey to pounce on and notch up his hat-trick.

A Thurston-esque show and go by Dan Ebert helped David Cumming to his third try of the match and sealed the famous 13-5 victory.

A big think you to all the players who came out for the exhibition match.
