Football up and kicking

WARWICK senior football co-ordinator Dominic Benz was happy with his Warwick premier league football teams’ first-up performance this season despite a 2-0 loss to USQ at USQ.

Benz said the side created plenty of opportunities but was not able to turn opportunities into goals.

“We have worked on our attack in training this week before our game against Wanderers at Wanderers at 3pm Sunday,” Benz said.

Last weekend, Warwick conceded two goals in the first half before keeping USQ scoreless in the second half.

Benz said the best players for Warwick in the premier division were right defender Josh Robinson and right winger Ricky Sinkins.

In the ladies’ division, Warwick was one woman short but still won 2-1 against USQ under new coach Jon Pearson.

Benz said considering Warwick fielded an under strength side and still managed to get away with a win, it was an indication that great things would come from the ladies’ side this season.

In the colts division, Warwick won 2-1 against Garden City White on Sunday.

Warwick only has three senior teams this season as the colts and third-division men’s competitions have been amalgamated.

Benz said Warwick was planning to field a team in third division.
