Win in extra time at Shell Cup final
CAMERON Shepherd won the best player award as Warwick beat Wandoan 16-15 in the Shell Cup final at Morgan Park yesterday.
The Shell Cup final followed a weekend of club and interstate polocrosse which heralded the start of the 2013 season in Queensland.
Tansey has been the most successful team in A-grade men's polocrosse in recent seasons but Warwick beat them 19-16 in the Shell Cup semi-final on Saturday afternoon.
Wandoan won the other semi-final 21-13 against Bauhinia. Warwick had earlier beaten Guyra 20-8 in its first game.
Shepherd said it was goal for goal throughout the final.
"We held the Shell Cup and fielded a new-look team. Mark O'Leary played in the number-one team for the first time in many years and we fielded a woman, Katie Barr, in the men's team," Shepherd said.
"Katie played very well."
The score was 15-all at fulltime and O'Leary scored the winning goal from the first line-up in extra time.
The second winner from the Eastern Darling Downs was Clifton in D-grade. Georgia McMaster won best horse and rider.
