Wolves struggle against Highfields
KAYLA Miller, Alana Edmunds and Sharni Rielly were the three best as the Warwick Wolves ladies team went down 2-1 to Highfields in yesterday’s Football Toowoomba game at Queens Park.
The loss puts Warwick out of the top four by one point with one round to go.
Rockville leads Gatton, Highfields and Willowburn.
Highfields scored a scrappy goal off a Warwick mistake to lead 1-0 after 10 minutes of the game.
Ange Furness levelled for Warwick five minutes later before leaving the field with a shoulder injury and only returning in the final 15 minutes.
In the second half, Highfields scored to lead 2-1. Miller nearly scored an equaliser but her shot went just over the crossbar.
Coach Mark Canton was delighted with the effort by a depleted team.
“We had players out with injuries and illness and were back to nine when Ange was off,” Canton said.
“We can make the finals all right but need to have a fully fit squad available for the rest of the season.”
The ladies train each Wednesday between 6pm and 7.30pm and Canton is hoping for a full turnout at this week’s training in preparation for a Saturday night game against Willowburn
“This is our grand final as a loss would put us four points out of the four,” Canton said.
