Wolves reserves in hunt for semis
THE Warwick Wolves stayed in the race for the Football Toowoomba men’s reserves semi-final with an 8-2 victory against USQ on Sunday.
The Wolves took on USQ at Toara Park, needing the two points for a win to move to equal fourth with USQ.
Some strong performances from the front line created a lot of opportunities early in the match.
Chris Leech, Lachlan Gilchrist and Brett Sinkins had ample shots on goal for Warwick to lead 2-0 at the half-time break.
Some vital efforts in defence from Stan Bain and Josh Parker ultimately gave Warwick a 4-2 win, leaving them well in contention of securing that spot in the top four.
The Wolves ladies faced off against Rockville, the joint leaders in the championship alongside Gatton.
Alice Morrissey performed well upon returning from her football-playing holiday to Germany, as did the remainder of the depleted side which lost 4-0.
Coach Mark Canton has to deal with a lot of injuries at the moment.
The side will be playing at home this weekend against Gatton and needs a win and will be hoping for a loss from Willowburn to keep its final hopes alive.
The news wasn’t so good for our premier men’s side who have been suffering a severe performance slump in the final few weeks of the season, there was little good news to draw from the match as the Wolves went down 8-2 to USQ.
Coaches remain optimistic that the side can recover and end the season on a good note.
With finals out of the picture at this point, the club would just like to finish up by showing its competitors what Warwick has to offer, and look forward to a better 2012.
The club has started looking to next season already and would encourage any perspective coaches, assistants, club/committee members and players to come forward with expressions of interest.
The club relies heavily on the people from within the club to survive and would appreciate any help it can get.
Nominations are now open for the upcoming futsal season. The association will be running men’s and mixed competitions, kick off in early October, all that is needed is a team of at least five players.
