Devils on a winning streak

A WIN by Gympie Devils on Sunday pushed them another place up the ladder after they defeated home-team Noosa 20-12.

The victory was made even sweeter with the Devils claiming the Royal Mail Shield for 2012.

Noosa and Gympie played for the shield every year and it was a combination of developed teamwork and stand-out performances from Nick Swan and Ben Santowski that made the difference.

Coach Kris Kahler said that he expected a good game from the team and that's what they provided.

Conditions on the grounds were muddy after the Sunshine Coast received heavy rain over the weekend.

"The conditions were pretty ordinary," Kahler said.

He said the win had put the team on a roll that they needed to be on to win against Beerwah at Beerwah tomorrow night.

Kahler said the Devils needed to win well against Beerwah so they could start to close the gap between themselves and top teams Kawana and Caboolture.

The Devils sit at fourth position with 15 points, behind Maroochydore on 16, Caboolture on 21 and Kawana on 22. They play tomorrow at 7pm.
