Queanbeyan got on top in the midfield in the 2nd quarter and kicked 6 goals to 2 to have an 11 point lead at half time.

Midway through the term Queanbeyan found some run down back and through the centre to open up the play and kick some quick goals to finish off the quarter. Queanbeyan led by 34 points at three quarter time. Coach Chris Rourke moved some players around and to Ainslie's credit they fought back hard in the last quarter to narrow the margin to 10 points late in the quarter.
