Top effort by Warwick girls

WARWICK won its first four games in the under-13 girls Southern Cross Hockey Carnival at the Gold Coast on Sunday to secure second spot.

Team manager Michelle Eastwell said the weekend performance by Warwick was the best by a girls’ U13 team for at least five years.

“We would have been happy to get a win so it was a great result at an away carnival,” Michelle said.

The victories were 1-0 against Tweed Border 2, 2-0 against Ipswich 2, 1-0 against Toowoomba 2 and 2-1 against Sunshine Coast 2.

Warwick lost 1-0 to Brisbane 3 and 4-0 to Brisbane 2 in its last game of the carnival.

Lauren Eastwell scored the most goals for Warwick, two against Ipswich and one against Toowoomba.

Hayley Millard scored a double against the Sunshine Coast and Linsy Armbruster scored the winning goal against Tweed Border.

The representative team includes five students from Scots PGC College who play in the TAS competition.

State titles

TEAM numbers are growing as the Warwick Hockey Association prepares for the Queensland Ladies Veterans Hockey Championships at Queens Park on the Queens Birthday long weekend.

Association president Peter Pickering said 44 teams had nominated so far and would play games on six fields.

“We will mark three temporary fields on the football oval which was historically used for hockey in the winter,” Pickering said.

More volunteers are needed to help run the carnival and can contact Pickering on 4661 3817.
