WARWICK'S Under 13 boys hockey team may not have won all their games at the State Titles this week, but their coach is proud of their never-say-die attitude.

Warwick under 13s coach Phil Rolfe said this year's team was a fairly young one.

"We have players aged from seven through to 13," he said. "The older boys have really stepped up and the younger fellows are following suit."

He said the competition had brought out the best in all of them, but there had been a few standouts.

"Josh Jensen, Simon Rolfe and Matty Eastwell have had an exceptional carnival," he said.

"Bailey Rutledge has played really well and our goal keeper Lawrence Ellis.

"I am impressed with how they've gone and of all the games they have lost it has only been by one goal."

In order for Warwick to continue to the next round they had to defeat Bundaberg in their clash last night, which was still going as the Daily News went to print due to delays caused by this week's rain.

Yesterday, because of waterlogged grass fields, all games had to played out on the turf, which meant shortening and rescheduling game times.

Tournament director Joseph Rudolph said despite the rain the State Championships had run smoothly.

"The players have been excellent in co-operating with time changes," he said.

The division one final will be played at 1pm today at Queen's Park.
