Cougars host semi-finals

THE Western Cougars Gridiron Club is today hosting four semi-final games at Grindle Rd, Wacol.

The main game features the second-placed Cougars seniors playing the Gold Coast Stingrays.

The Cougars are looking to avenge a three-point loss in last year's semi-final to the Stingrays, who went on to win the competition.

The two clubs have a rich rivalry dating back to the late 1990s when their senior teams played in six championship games from 1999-2004, with the Cougars winning five. The Cougars have been knocked out at the semi-final stage by the Stingrays in their last two playoff seasons in 2009 and 2011. Both teams have had time to recover from injuries as they both had byes last weekend.

The Cougars are keen to keep their offence firing, having scored 342 points during their current eight-game winning streak, and continue their staunch defensive effort that has given up only 50 points over those eight games.

All games will be shown on delayed telecast on Bris 31.

With the successful conclusion last week of the inaugural Female Gridiron League of Queensland (FGLQ), the Western Cougars Gridiron Club is asking for expressions of interest from female players aged 18 and over to enter a team in the 2013 competition.

The FGLQ is a Gridiron Queensland-sanctioned competition and the participants wear the same full protective equipment as the males and play under the same rules as the males.

The FGLQ plays their games at Logan Metro Sports Centre and the inaugural season saw three teams pad up with the Jets taking out the championship decider 38-20 over the Panthers. The 2012 season started in August and the 2013 season is expected to be the same.

Any interested players for the 2013 season can contact the Western Cougars via the club email at cougars@gridironqld.asn.au or visit the club's website at cougarsgridiron.com.au.
