Exciting games of weekend football

THE ladies side kicked off a big day of football at Queens Park yesterday morning, going down 2-1 to a full-strength Rockville side.

Coach Mark Canton said the score was not a true reflection of the effort the girls put in.

“Alice Morrissey had an outstanding game in goal for the side, with captain Kayla Morris leading by example and moving the ball around the park,” he said.

The women will lose newcomer Jen Radley for the next three to four weeks after she broke her ankle during the match.

After the women's match, the Wolves second division team returned to their winning ways with a 5-3 win over Gatton.

The ever-improving backline of Stan Bain, Dom Benz, Codey Hayward and Tony Chandler kept up a solid defence.

Warwick got off to a quick lead when Andy O'Donnell netted a great chip shot after chasing down a long ball from Matt Elford after only 30 seconds of play.

The sides went goal for goal during the first half, and were locked at 3-3. After half-time Warwick was able to string a couple of clever plays and net a goal.

In the premier match, Warwick again got off to an early lead after Johnny Enosa got his head to a well placed cross from the right boot of Chris Leach.

Gatton managed to break through the usually strong defensive line and beat goalkeeper Shannon Cameron, bringing it to 1-1.

This remained for the next 50 minutes, until Cameron was red carded in the 75 minute.

Gatton took home a 2-1 win after they won a controversial penalty shootout.
