Joint premiers crowned in U15 Junior Rugby League Division 2

The Stanley River Wolves and Beachmere Pelicans were forced to share premiership honours in the U15 Boys Division 2 after drawing 22-all on junior rugby league grand final day in Caboolture.


Wolves skipper Preston Capp and Beachmere captain Hazem Au share the spoils.

This extraordinary game began at 2.20pm and concluded at 5.13pm, and involved a first-half stoppage of more than an hour as a Beachmere player sustained a worrying spinal injury which required ambulance attention. 

Beachmere also had a player sent off during the first half, with Stanley River eventually gaining a 16-10 half-time lead and later moving ahead 22-12.

But despite having the benefit of one more player on the field than their opponents, the Wolves were unable to close the game out.

The score was deadlocked at full-time, and remained unchanged after 10 minutes of extra time, with a field goal attempt from Beachmere hitting the crossbar in the final 25 seconds.
