DOM Benz scored two goals as the Warwick Wolves beat USQ 3-2 to record the team's second win of the Football Toowoomba season.

It was the first double for Benz since he was part of a unique goal-scoring burst at Gatton almost a decade ago when Dom, his brother Sam and their father Andrew all scored a treble in the same game.

"It helped to have a full side of fresh players," Benz said.

In the reserves game yesterday, USQ won 1-0.

Benz said the improvement was obvious.

"We lost 7-0 in premiers and 7-1 in reserves in the last games between the two clubs," Benz said.

In premiers, Warwick led 1-0 after Benz put the ball into an unattended net after the USQ goalie advanced to challenge Warwick player Morgan Gilchrist for the ball.

The goalie didn't clear the ball properly and Benz goaled.

USQ scored in the 35th minute of play to level the scores.

In the second half, USQ scored early before Benz equalised with a shot from 25m.

Simon Lever scored the game clincher after the goalie dropped the ball and Lever put his shot over the heads of four players to secure a Warwick victory.

In the reserves game, USQ had three-quarters of the play but the Warwick defence held well only conceding a goal in the 30th minute of the first half.

Mitch Darton and Robbie Davey had strong games in the premier grade with Jim Osborn outstanding in goal in reserves.
