Toads ended Maroochydore’s chances of making the 2014 Sunshine Coast Rugby Union finals in Cotton Tree, Australia this afternoon. They defeated the reigning premiers 43 points to 12.

A Maroochydore try at 32 minutes suggested a fight back from three tries down but Toads would pile on four tries to one from there. Maroochydore’s finals chances ended at eleven minutes to five local time (0649 UTC) with their final try.

To qualify for the finals, Maroochydore needed to win both of its games and have other results go its way. They play the second-placed University next week in their final game of the season. Toads play Noosa next week and, in a minor semi final preview, Caloundra the week after.

In the weekends other A-grade game, Caloundra defeated Noosa 22–14.

Sunshine Beach, Queensland — Maroochydore denied Caboolture a shot at back-to-back Sunshine Coast Rugby Union A-grade premierships today defeating them 24 points to 7 at Dolphin Oval, Sunshine Beach, Australia. Caboolture qualified for this match by beating Caloundra in the Minor Semi Final; Maroochydore lost the Major Semi Final against Noosa.

Maroochydore is now set to play Noosa in the A-grade grand final while, in the lower grades, Maleny had both of its teams move through to grand final day. Their reserve grade side defeated Maroochydore 53–24 and their under 19s beating Caboolture 29–20.

In the A-grade game, Maroochydore proved to dominate for Caboolture going 19–nil up at half time. They would have been a further two points up if not for a missed conversion.

The second half was more of an arm wrestle with both teams scoring tries. Maroochydore would cap off the win right on full time with an unsuccessful penalty. Unlike a week earlier, those in attendance were reasonably well behaved.

The Grand Final is scheduled to be held at Sunshine Coast Stadium in Bokarina, Queensland.

Preliminary Final day is to see Caboolture play Maleny in the Under 19s (Colts), Maleny play Maroochydore in Reserve grade, and Maroochydore play Caboolture in A-grade.

Their opponents — Caboolture, Maleny, and Maroochydore respectively — now play the winner of the minor semi final at Sunshine Beach next Saturday, while Noosa go straight to the August 31 Grand Final.

In the Under 19s, top-place Noosa defeated second placed Caboolture 28 points to 7 after leading 21–0 at half time. In Reserve grade Noosa defeated Maleny 29 points to 3 after leading 17–3 at half time.

In the A-grade game, Noosa proved to dominate for Maroochydore going 13–nil up after 28 minutes. Maroochydore would get three points back with eight minutes left in the half but gave Noosa an intercept try a minute later.

With Noosa leading on the score board — 18 points to 3 — Maroochydore centre Ian Parkes sin binned fifteen minutes into the second half. Noosa went further ahead with the resulting penalty.

The match was stopped for a couple of minutes with about 24 minutes to play while a spectator was dealt with for directing abuse at the referee. The offending party seems only to have been cautioned at this point.

Two tries in the final moments were not enough to see Maroochydore through to the Grand Final. As they were celebrating the second of these a streaker entered the playing area, running the length of the field before absconding down a nearby road.
