A HAT-TRICK in front of Ben Aho’s home crowd clinched the Pres­i­dents Cup for the Brumbies.

The Mun­dub­bera player scored three sec­ond half tries in an ab­sorb­ing en­counter to help the Un­der 16 Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies win 30-28 over Cher­bourg.

Five early tries to Cher­bourg had the vis­i­tors lead­ing 22-4 at half time.

But the Brumbies found con­sis­tency in the sec­ond half to close the gap.

Aho charged over on the full-time buzzer to score the win­ning points.

Brumbies lock for­ward Aaron Gra­ham was player of the match.

Un­de­feated Mur­gon con­tin­ued their fine form in the U14’s Pres­i­dents Cup, de­feat­ing the Brumbies 48-10.

Brumbies had good form in short bursts.

But, with sev­eral Wide Bay rep­re­sen­ta­tive play­ers in the Mur­gon team, they proved too strong for the Cen­tral Bur­nett boys.

Kin­garoy de­feated Cher­bourg 12-4 in the Un­der 12s.
