Emphatic win for Warwick ladies
THE Warwick ladies’football side is sitting fourth on the ladder and will take on USQ at 1.30pm tomorrow at Queens Park.
The ladies managed a 16-nil win last week with a well under-strength side of only nine players, however, their opponents were also under strength with only seven players.
Due to the low numbers, the referee invoked a mercy rule early in the second half.
Coach Jon Pearson was pleased with the result, stating that their for-and-against looked a lot better coming to the end of the first round of fixtures.
The Warwick premier men’s side, which is placed sixth on the ladder, will take on USQ after the ladies’ game at 3pm.
The side has placed a heavy reliance on fitness training during the past fortnight and is hoping to see the results of that come through in the game this weekend.
“USQ has always been a very fit side and we really need to be on our toes for a full 90 minutes in order to keep them under control,” team member Dominic Benz said.
“We lost 2-nil to USQ in the first game of the season and would really love to come out on top this weekend.”
The Warwick colts played top-of-the-table Gatton in the colts’ game last night at West Wanderers in Toowoomba.
The Warwick team is currently placed equal sixth on the ladder with Garden City Colts.
