Tough weekend for United Warriors in Wide Bay League

SUNBURY was the only Fraser Coast club to celebrate victory in a tough weekend for our Wide Bay League teams.

Both men's and women's teams faced Doon Villa at Maryborough's Federation Park Field in the only local derby of the round, and both left with three competition points each in what was one of their most successful days in senior football.

All four senior teams (first and second division men's and women's teams) won.

For Sunbury's men the 2-1 win was the first of their season, and allowed the Blues to move to seventh.

The 3-0 win was the women's second win which kept them in touch with the top four, and left Doon Villa on the bottom.

Doon Villa coach Brendan Barsby said this season was one of rebuilding for the club.

"It's our first time back in division one and the girls are finding their feet," he said.

"Our game Friday night was the best, we've got our combinations, but we are still missing one or two strike players. Brothers (Aston Villa) gave us a touch-up last week but the girls were much happier after this game."

Barsby said his side had vastly improved since the 12-1 loss to Aston Villa the previous week.

Both of United Warriors' first division teams suffered through tough road trips to Brothers Aston Villa.

The women lost 2-1 in a close encounter while the men were decimated 10-3.

KSS Jets had the bye in Wide Bay League but will play their FFA Cup fixture against UPE next Monday.
