The United Park Eagles travelled to Maryborough on Saturday to play Granville in a round two catch-up game and came home with the points, winning 4-1.

A win was needed to keep the Eagles in the top four.

Across the Waves also continued their winning ways with a 2-1 over Bingera, with Waves coach Peter Bock pleased they got the win.

“It was a good team performance, but we did not take all of our chances,” Bock said.

They will travel to Rockhampton for the second time this season to play Frenchville in the first round of the FQPL Champions League.

“It will be a close game against Frenchville; they are a classy team. I am glad we travel first, and they come back to us in the return match,” Bock said.

In the other catch-up match, the KSS Jets defeated Sunbury 8-0.

The Premier League will break this week before returning on July 9, but there are two catch-up games to go ahead this weekend when the KSS Jets play Granville in Hervey Bay while the United Park Eagles host the Fraser Flames at Martens Oval. These games are round one fixtures that were abandoned due to the wet weather.

When the full competition returns, Across the Waves, will play Doon Villa while the United Park Eagles play Bingera. On the Fraser Coast, Granville will host Sunbury while the KSS Jets play S.C. Corinthians.

The women’s competition was an 8-2 win for the KSS Jets over Sunbury, while the Fraser Flames thrashed Tinana 13-0. Across the Waves defeated Bingera 7-1.

The women’s competition also breaks this weekend; however, a catch-up game from round one is scheduled at Martens Oval between Diggers and Tinana.

When they all return the following week, the United Park Eagles play Bingera while Across the Waves play Tinana. Both matches are at Martens Oval.

On the Fraser Coast, the KSS Jets will play Diggers, and the United Warriors will face off against Sunbury. Both matches are to be played in Hervey Bay.
