PLAYING in memory of much loved clubman and friend, Wayne Hart, who passed away suddenly earlier in the week; and powered by a Lachlan Scarborough double, Brothers-Aston Villa claimed a season-defining 4-2 victory over fellow contenders United Park Eagles in their Football Wide Bay Premier League fourth round clash at Martens Oval on Saturday night.
Villa however remain one point behind joint leaders Across The Waves and Bingera who each maintained their unbeaten records with wins over Bargara 6-1 and KSS Jets 4-1 respectively.
In AFL Seniors, Across The Waves Eagles were brought crashing back to earth, suffering their first loss of the season, being blown away by their hosts and reigning premiers Bay Power 9.12 (66) to 2.6 (18).
However, in hockey, the Waves Cities’ men’s juggernaut rolled on with a 4-0 victory over Arrows/Athletics.
The Bundaberg Junior Rugby League season kicked off on the weekend and in under-18, last year’s beaten grand finalists Waves Tigers were edged out by Wallaroos 18-16 in Maryborough, while Wests Panthers looked good with a 46-6 demolition of defending champions Hervey Bay Seagulls at Salter Oval on Sunday afternoon.
Here are all the local scores from the weekend:
