Festival vibe to weekend football matches
NINE teams from Brisbane headed to Warwick yesterday for the Peace Festival football.
One of the new teams this year was Stanthorpe United which backed up after club football on Saturday.
The United team was boosted by some players from Warwick.
Somali Stars beat Best United in a penalty shootout in the final yesterday afternoon.
Warwick Wolves coach Peter Osborn was impressed with the standard of the final.
"It was compatible in standard to the Toowoomba premier competition," Osborn said.
"The Stanthorpe and Warwick players found it difficult backing up after a game the day before," he said.
Osborn said the festival football was played with great spirit.
"The visiting teams really enjoyed themselves," he said.
"They all came up to the organisers afterwards thanking us for the day at the Peace Festival."
Benz brothers star
THE Benz brothers Robbie and Cameron scored three goals between them in 10 minutes to set up a Warwick Wolves 5-2 victory against Stanthorpe United in the premier grade at Stanthorpe on Saturday afternoon.
Midway through the first half, Robbie scored two and Cameron one to put their side up 3-0 before United responded with one goal before half-time.
