Wolves net a 9–1 victory
IT was a gala day of football at Queens Park at the weekend.
The Warwick Wolves and Colts both played their first home games in Stanthorpe association fixtures for more than two decades and 370 juniors played their first games of the season.
Two Warwick teams are playing in the Stanthorpe competition after making the move from the Toowoomba competition this year.
This year is also the first time junior and senior football games have been played on the same day in Warwick at Queens Park.
A hat-trick of goals by Robbie Davey led the Wolves to a strong 9-1 win over the visiting International team in the senior game.
The first half was a low-scoring affair with the half-time score at 1-0.
The second half started with a goal for Warwick then a reply goal by International.
This gave Warwick the motivation to move up a gear and as the International team tired Warwick added seven more goals.
Robbie Davey put in a man of the match performance.
Brett Sinkins scored two while Dom Benz, Morgan Gilchrist, Cameron Davey and Casey Baguley each found the net. A feature for Warwick was the strong defence of Derek Kane and Jim Osborn supported by new players Daniel Bowles and Corey Jones.
Warwick has conceded just one goal in its two games.
In Colts, Warwick beat International 6-0.
