Warbutson double seals win



IT was literally back to grassroots in the JH Willams Premier Leauge competition with two of the men's matches played at the weekend on grass fields in the Tweed.

At Kingscliff, Adam Warbutson was the hero with a goal-scoring double in the home team's 2-1 win over United Vipers.

After a scoreless first half, Warbutson converted a penalty stroke mid- way through the second stanza to give his side the lead.

The goal served to spark the Vipers attack and forward Michael Robinson found the equaliser before Warbutson converted another penalty to seal the win.

At Burringbar, Waratah Bobcats defeated Redbacks 4-1 in a game marred by an ugly brawl. A number of cards were distributed to players on both sides with Bobcats forward Dwayne Newell sent off.

Bobcats had 17 shots on goal in the first half with only Tim Willis' backhand tomahawk and penalty stroke getting through. Mick and Dwayne Newell scored one each in the second half with Glenn Campbell scoring for Redbacks.

In the other game, Murwillumbah Alstonville overcame Allstars 4-3.

In the women's games Kingscliff beat Griffith 9-1 and United Vipers defeated Redbacks 3-1.
