Halfback Ryan Bugeja amassed a massive 26 points with two tries and six goals as Wests Panthers plucked Easts Magpies 60-6 in their Bundaberg Junior Rugby League Under-15 clash at Salter Oval on Sunday.
The Panthers also powered on in Under-18, outgunning Wallaroos 40-16 with co-captains centre Jensen Deamer and hooker Joel Baldwin each bagging doubles and Deamer also kicking five goals for an 18-point haul.
In the Football Wide Bay Premier League, co-leaders Across The Waves and Bingera each maintained their unbeaten records with victories over KSS Jets and United Park Eagles respectively, while it was a red-letter day for Bargara, keeping their hopes alive with a Riccardo Gastaldello double firing them to a gutsy 4-2 win at the expense of Sunbury.
Waves Cities preserved their perfect record in the Hockey Bundaberg Men’s division with rising superstar Ryley Stevens hammering in four goals in a 7-1 blitz of All Blacks.
In the AFL Wide Bay Seniors, Waves Eagles bounced back from their loss to premiers Bay Power to outclass cross-town rivals Brothers Bulldogs 9.14 (68) to 2.6 (18) but the Power retained their position at the top of the table, scrapping a come-from-behind three-point win over Hervey Bay Bombers in a low scoring affair.
