Nanango is out-gunned on home turf
Football: A handful of early goals scored by the Kingaroy Gunners set the team up for a win against the Nanango Panthers in Division Two.
It was the first win for Gunners Division Two side in the past couple of weeks, coach Debbie Ovens said.
"It was a very closely contested game and could have goner either way,” she said.
Ovens said Nanango were traditionally a tough team to beat on their home pitch.
With a strong backing of supporters at the ground, Ovens said the pitch itself was also difficult.
There were a few absentees on both sides, which may have helped Gunners along.
"It's about the only game we've been successful in this year, Nanango's been really hard to beat in Division Two and we've done really well against them,” Ovens said.
"But that all depends on who you've got to play.”
In Division One the Gunners were not so lucky.
"We lost 1-0 but we played extremely well, we got a couple of guys away in Germany at the moment and I had to reshuffle my squad,” Ovens said.
"It was always going to be a tough ask to beat Nanango.”
With William Ambrose and Lachlan Hurt overseas there was room for some of the other players to shine.
Kade Buckle had a good game, he's been playing really well,” Ovens said.
The region's soccer teams move to Super Saturday round in Wondai, with all teams playing on town over two fields.
Ovens is confident the Gunners will get up against Wests on the day.
"We've had a couple of draws and a couple of wins, but it all depends with Wests as to who they have show up on the day as to the quality they put on the field,” she said.
