Junior teams bounce into action
THE biggest show since the NBL Blitz arrived in town hit Sportz Central on the weekend when 40 teams went into battle to decide supremacy in the Interstate Challenge between New South Wales and Queensland.
And the strong local contingent was in the thick of the action with Coffs Harbour teams progressing to grand finals in six of the nine divisions contested at the carnival.
Play was still in progress late yesterday but Coffs Harbour Suns Red squad was engaged in winning bragging rights in the Under-12 boys after the Suns Black went down 45-19 to Logan Thunder in the 3rd vs 4th playoff.
The Under-16 boys missed the decider but won their 3rd vs 4th playoff against Caboolture Suns, 42-32.

In Under-14 girls, the Suns Red girls were facing Logan Thunder in the 3rd vs 4th playoff with Suns Black in the grand final against Northside Wizards.
