Villa leave it to the last minute

FOOTBALL: In the end it was going to take something special to break the deadlock between The Waves and Brothers Aston Villa in the Wide Bay League.

Even after 80 minutes it looked likely both teams would play out a draw.

That was until Villa captain Josh McInnes got involved and turned the game in three minutes.

McInnes scoring a screamer from outside the box in the 84th minute before doubling the advantage two minutes later with a deflected goal to give Villa a 2-0 win.

"I couldn't believe it had happened,” he said.

"(It) was just the perfect pass, well weighted and I just put my foot through it.”

McInnes was quick to draw the attention away from himself.

"I'm proud of the boys, we all never gave up,” he said.

"It could have went either way, was one of those scrappy games.”

Despite that Villa had their chances including a golden chance in the first half where the ball ricocheted between players but didn't go over the goalline.

"I think we deserved to win,” McInnes said.

"But they could have scored goals at well.”

For The Waves not scoring was the only disappointment of the night.

"All credit to them (but) we missed two of our chances which in the end cost us the game,” The Waves coach Jason De Papi said.

"They are two goals you won't see again this year.”

De Papi said the side played well throughout.

"Our determination and effort from the boys was 100%, they should be proud of themselves,” he said.

"Tom Adam and Patrick Fennessy were the best two for us.

"Bailey (Bainbridge our goalkeeper) also had a good game.”

The side will now focus on shooting this week in training before taking on Bargara on Saturday.

Brothers Aston Villa will take on Caloundra in the FFA Cup at home.

In other results Bingera defeated Bargara 5-1, Doon Villa beat the United Warriors 2-1 with the United Park Eagles losing 4-2 to the KSS Jets.
