SOCCER: South Burnett United continue to prove their strength in the Toowoomba championship competition as they remain undefeated.

South Burnett hosted the Chinchilla Bears at Tom Alford Oval of Saturday with United winning four goals to nil.

This is the second time the teams have met this year having played a trial match before the season started in Nanango when South Burnett were also victorious.

Coach of the South Burnett side, Lauren Mangan said she was proud of the teams effort.

"Considering the defence we were up against I think we played well," she said.

 

Going into the game Chinchilla knew South Burnett are a strong attacking team so put more players into defence to prevent the home team from scoring.

"They were very aware that we are an attacking side and they were short of personnel so they opted to play tight defence," Mangan said.

"It was really difficult to penetrate the defence because they had so many bodies in defence."

The team stepped up and defeated Warwick's first division FFA team six goals to two.

South Burnett adjusted to their opponents style of play and will look to continue their winning form when they travel to take on the Gatton Redbacks next week.
