Wolves winning streak comes to end
AFTER five rounds of the Football Toowoomba season, the Warwick colt's team is the best performed footy team from the Southern Downs.
The colts started the season scoring 20 goals and conceding none to win four successive games.
The winning streak ended on Friday night when the Wolves went down 3-1 to West Wanderers.
Warwick started well in colt's football with a number of opportunities to score.
In one of the best sequences of the game, Chris Leach set up Matthew Carey for an excellent goal. Wanderers replied with a goal that came from a loose ball in the box after a corner. They then scored a great goal from outside the box to be up 2-1 at half time.
Warwick came back well in the second half with most of the play but could not score. Wanderers scored another goal on the rebound.
Luke Dargan had a great game and Chris Leach showed some excellent skills.
Coach Peter Osborn said with 11 teams in the competition, he expected some more tough games in the next two months.
“The weekend game gave us a better idea of what to expect,” he said.
Warwick has a bye this weekend in colts and there is no football on the Easter weekend.
In ladies football, Sharni Reilly scored a double, Emily Hoffman and Natasha Nolan one each in a 4-1 victory against Willowburn.
Warwick has two wins from three games this season.
Coach Mark Canton said he was happy with the performance of his young side.
“They are working well together,” Canton said.
Warwick drew 5-all in premier men's with Ricky Sinkins scoring a double.
Nick Lockley scored from a free kick on halfway, John Enosa and Rob Davey also scored. Lockley and Enosa were the best for Warwick.
In reserves, Andy O'Donnell scored two goals and Nathan Chandler one from 30 metres in a 4-3 loss to Rockville. Stan Bain and Chandler starred for Warwick.
Warwick has three home games from 11am Sunday at Queen's Park. The ladies play the first game against Rockville while the men play Gatton, reserves at 1pm and premier at 3pm.
