Mixed results for Warwick Wolves in Football Toowoomba

FOOTBALL: Warwick came back from a 3-1 deficit at halftime to draw 3-all with Rockville in the Football Toowoomba premier game at St Alban's grounds on Sunday.

Rob Davey scored the first half goal for Warwick from a free kick.

Jayden Webb scored a field goal in the second half to reduce the margin to one before Matthew Carey equalised midway through the second half.

Coach Mick Willmot said his side had a number of chances in both halves to score more goals.

"We were all over Rockville Rovers and were one nil up before conceding three goals as we didn't mark up tight enough late in the half," he said.

"With the possession we had in the first 30 minutes of the game, we could have been four goals up.

"The one point for a draw helps us keep us in touch with the top four. Our second-half performances in the past two weeks have been perfect, we just have to play the same in the first half."

Willmot rated Webb and Saxon Charles as his best.

Warwick play leaders USQ at Toara Park on Saturday night. USQ is the only team to win both its games scoring 13 goals and only conceding two.

"Emily Hoffman and Chloe Ruhle led the defence well, we were strong across the back.

"Goalie Clancy Topp had a strong game before leaving the field with injury with five minutes to go."
