SENIOR FOOTBALL RESULTS
SENIOR MEN'S: - Wilston Grange It was a tough game for the senior men as they lead in all but one QTR, falling agonisingly short in that final QTR against Wilston Grange. Although there was plenty of heart they could not stop the home team from clawing back the lead in that final QTR. A special mention to Keegan Downie who scored 5 goals and to Jackson Hille with 3. The boys look to move forward and start preparing for their game against Mt Gravatt this weekend. RESERVES: Once again the side started extremely well both in attack and defence. We kicked the first goal and held the opposition goalless until around the 20 minute mark of the first quarter. The second quarter was an arm wrestle where we just could not manage to bring scoreboard pressure to bear finishing the quarter 3 goals in arrears. We let Grange off the leash in the third but we were still only the 3 goals down thanks to their wayward kicking. Grange kicked on in the last and we couldn't go with them kicking only the 1 goal to their 5. There is no doubt the effort and work rate is there and there has been improvement each week. The last few weeks it has only been 1 quarter that has let us down. Consistency is what we seek. COLTS: Another slow start this week again allowing the opposition to get the jump on us. This is something we will need to address as this is the second week in a row. Although we regained some of our own Panther spirit to get ourselves back in it after kicking 4 goals of our own in the second term to be only trailing by 14 points at the main break. The second half saw us draw level with 5 minutes remaining in the 3rd term only to again allow the opposition to kick away in the dying minutes. With our numbers reduced again through some injuries we just couldn’t gain any momentum to get us within striking range. Again, going down by what we gave away in the first term. There are encouraging signs, so it’s important for us to remain positive as we aren’t far away from sealing our 5th victory of the season. Hopefully at the expense of Mt Gravatt this coming weekend.
SENIORS: Final Score: WGFC 17.15 117 MAFC 14.15 99 RESERVES: Final Score: WGFC 11.15 81 MAFC 5.3 33 COLTS Final Score: WGFC 11.6 72 MAFC 7.4 46
QFAW DIV 1 - Rd 13 vs ROBINA Although the conditions weren’t ideal on Saturday with the Robina fields extremely wet and muddy, the Women's teams got the job done with a couple of good wins. A decent scoring first quarter set up the seniors for the rest of the game, with Emily Triggs particularly influential in the first half claiming best on ground honours. Our reserves were up next with a very tight first quarter, however the team built up the momentum over the game and were able to take their chances in front of goal. The fitness of the group allowed them to run the game out well, put some good scores on the board coming home with a strong win, Teresa Dixon was our Place Bulimba best on ground. The win puts the reserves team on top of the ladder with 3 important round games left before finals.
SENIOR WOMEN'S: Final Score: ROB 2.5 17 MAFC 5.7 37
RESERVES WOMEN'S: Final Score: ROB 1.3 9 MAFC 5.9 39

Remembering Brenden Longland
To the President of the Morningside Junior Football Club,
I just wanted to inform the Morningside Junior Football Club about the passing of Brenden Longland a “Sider for Life”. Whilst he had many strings to his bow he was a proud Panther and was most proud of his contribution to the Morningside Junior Footy Club as a coach and committee member.
As a Morningside player
In 1961 he and a good mate Darryl Chambers, after trying a bit of league and rugby went along to Aussie Rules as a bit of a joke. They fell in love with the game and stayed. He stuck with it and turned himself into a fairly handy ruck rover. He played in the Reserve Grade in 1965 in Morningside’s first ever Grand Final.
Backing that up again with another premiership in 1967. He left Morningside after this Premiership marrying Kathryn Whitehead the next year and settling down to start a family.
Still attending Senior games on a regular basis he returned to the club when his two sons were ready to play in 1978. As a Morningside Junior Coach
When his boys were old enough to play in 1978. He coached a different team each year from 1978 through to 1988 from Under 8s through to Under 15s. He was not a fan of coaching either of his son’s teams, believing they needed different voices. But he eventually relented one year to coaching Roberts’ team because they needed a hand.
Along with Alf Weston and Charlie King (Morningside Men), Brenden advocated for the successful introduction of modified football in Queensland. Identifying the benefits to the players’ development and the attraction to introducing parents to the game. Proud that Morningside were very influential in bringing modified rules into the league.
His coaching style was simple and focus was about skills and basics. Teaching kids to kick both feet and handball both hands was his primary focus for each year and the football would take care of itself.
His mantra for coaches was “Senior Coaches expect perfection, Junior coaches teach perfection”. He was later recognized for his contribution to Junior football with a life membership to the Queensland Junior, Australian Football League, in 1992.
When the boys moved to seniors he eventually hung up the coaching boots and took on managing senior teams. Amongst other teams, managing the A grade team in Morningside’s drought breaking 1991 Premiership.
The thing he would be most proud of is seeing boys he coached bring their own boys back to play to continue the cycle of Siders for Life.
Please ensure players are not tracking their boots through the Club House after training sessions. Thank You.
