Devils respond to Sharks attack
THE Devils upped the ante on Sunday, hitting up the Caloundra Sharks for a 32-12 win at Shark Park in the second last game before the launch of the finals campaign.
Gympie has been upping its game all year and the convincing win against a strong Caloundra side was the best work that captain/coach Kris Kahler had seen from the Devils so far.
"Caloundra played really well. We just played better," he said.
"There was a period where I asked them to aim higher and they responded.
"You get to sense when games are going to swing so I asked them to aim up and that's what they did - it's what I've been looking for from them all year."
Kahler said while the team started out a little slow, the Devils held up the fight and reaped the rewards.
"We started out a bit ordinary but we picked up and there's proof of that in the result," he said.
Ben Santowski brought the Devils back from an early 6-0 deficit and points were scored from there. The Devils play Noosa on Saturday.
