STAT ATTACK: Bombers the big performers in huge week

STAT Attack continues its first season in the QFA Wide Bay Sunshine Coast.

The weekly column looks at the numbers that make up the QFA Wide Bay Sunshine Coast after each week: attacking and defensive milestones, goalkicking rate, and other random stats.

Hervey Bay Bombers were the biggest performers in the competition's eighth-round.

The Torquay club experienced its biggest win of the season as it thumped Bay Power by 77 points.

Their 125 points - the most by any club in one game so far - set the season's record for goals in one game at 19.

The previous best was Brothers Bulldogs' 16 in round three (a 105-66 win over Bombers), but both the Bombers and Maroochydore Roos (17) passed the mark.

Hervey Bay's domination of their cross-town rivals saw it become the first club to kick 500 points this season (528, 75.4 per game), courtesy of a competition-high 66 goals.

For Bay Power it was their least-productive attack of the year to date, and their worst defensive effort.

The Power's disappointing trend of allowing increasingly large opposition totals continued for the sixth-straight game.

Maroochydore was the other big performer as they hammered a season-high 113 points against Gympie.

The Roos embarrassed the Cats under Six Mile Oval's lights for their most-productive attack, and best defensive effort, of the season.

Almost 54% of Maroochydore's points this season have come in the last fortnight.

Meanwhile Gympie slumped to its worst result of the year.

Their 15 points is the lowest by any club in the competition, and remain the only club to average less than 50 points per game.

The undefeated ladder-leaders Brothers recorded 10 or more goals in five consecutive games.
