Noosa scored two further tries to half time while Caloundra could only score penalty goals. The half time score was 26–19 in Noosa's favour. Caloundra opened the scoring in the second half kicking a penalty goal but would not score again for the rest of the match.

The score remained steady until the final fifteen minutes. Through a combination of poor defense at times from Caloundra and expansive running rugby, Noosa was able to run in five tries, of which four were converted. Final score — Noosa 62, Caloundra 22.

In other results, Caboolture defeated University 34–10 and Fraser Coast forfeited to Nambour.
