President's Cup lower grade results

Bluebags stage memorable return

SECOND DIVISION: Newtown's comeback game at Clive Berghofer has proven fruitful, with the Lions taking a big 50-12 win over Goondinwindi in the President's Cup final.

Newtown led from the outset and were never under any threat from the Boars, as their heavily experienced lineup came to the fore.

Three tries inside 12 minutes gave the Lions a handy 18-0 advantage, as they went into the sheds up 24-6.

Four more quick tries to start the second half gave Newtown a resounding lead that proved too much for Goondiwindi to reel in.

NEWTOWN 50 (Daniel Blades 2, Timothy Roberts, Cameron Moodie, Tristian Law, Luke Hellyer, Robbie Witt, Joshua Duncan tries; Moodie 8, Duncan goals) defeated GOONDIWINDI 12 (Gregory Binge, William Leo tries; Joshua Sullivan 2 goals)

Key stretch sees Diehards land upset

UNDER 18S: A dominant 12-minute period in the first half has guided Dalby to a 46-34 win over Southern Suburbs in the U18s decider.

With the game evenly poised following the opening part of the match, four tries in quick succession pushed the Diehards out to a 28-4 advantage, and an 18-point gap at the break.

The game looked all but over as Dalby stretched the lead to 40-16 with less than 20 minutes remaining, before three quick tries got the Tigers to within a converted try.

Brian-Adam Babbington's four-pointer with three minutes remaining sealed the win.

DALBY 46 (Max Brady 3, Josh Chappell, Mark Brown, Tim Sheehan, Kristian Bond, Brian-Adam Babbington tries; Chappell 7 goals) defeated SOUTHERN SUBURBS 34 (Ben Howard, Cooper Tate-Roche, Callum Ward, Jack Pike, Reece Liston, Jasper Smith tries; Jordan Lipp 4 goals)

Valleys draws first blood over Wattles

RESERVE GRADE: Valleys has taken the first round of their battle with Wattles, securing the reserve grade mid-season title with a 26-12 win.

Liam Ross has the Warriors tails up early in the contest after crossing inside four minutes.

Both teams then locked into a battle for momentum, as Valleys added back-to-back tries after 25 minutes of play through Curtley Hammond and Alex Hinch Jr to lead 12-6 at half-time.

The struggle for points continued throughout the opening stages of the second half, before the boot of Joshua Hancock edged the Roosters out by eight.

Moments later, Hinch Jr's second of the afternoon gave Valleys one hand on the trophy, which was sealed just moments later with Harrison Burns' 67th minute try.
