Gatton football rundown

HERE are the Gatton football notes from the past week.

Premier men: Things were not looking good for Gatton as, due to injury and unavailability, they started the game with five fresh legs and the rest of the team backing up from the Reserve Grade game.

The true Queensland spirit showed through as they dug deep and managed to come away with a 3-2 victory.

John Ross Alexander again played his heart out but received an injury late in the second half.

Thanks again to the Colts players.

Ben scored two goals, Curtis and Jack had a great game in goal and thanks to the many supporters who braved an extremely cold night in Toowoomba to cheer the men on.

Reserve men: The team finally got to sing the team song when they bagged a well-earned 2-1 win against Highfields.

Gatton dominated for the majority of the game with Greg Leathart scoring the goals for Gatton and receiving the man of the match.

Thanks again to the Colts players who stepped up to help out on a cold afternoon in Toowoomba.

Premier women: Played Rockville on Sunday in a top-of-the-table clash.

Gatton played well with their backs getting plenty of work.

Rockville scored first which Gatton were unable to shut down.

Gatton soon found its rhythm and started to take control.

A free kick to Gatton near the 18-yard line gave Gatton a chance in which Hoodie took and scored a good goal.

Gatton scored another goal from great team work and Sarah Robbo had a great shot and scored.

The second half saw an even tussle with both teams trying hard.

Rockville scored an equaliser from an unlucky handling error.

Gatton was getting a lot of pressure from Rockville and good work from the backs and good saves from Kesley held them out.

Gatton was unlucky not to score late in the game when they had Rockville struggling, but to their credit they scrambled well.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Player's player was Hoodie with Nina and Sarah Robbo just behind.

Division one women: Gatton played a home game against Laidley with a win of 3-1.

Both teams played with the same determination to win.

Laidley fought hard to keep their winning streak happening, but with Gatton's determination to win they fell short this time round.

Janita Taylor scored the first goal in the first half of the match.

Kaylah Dyball was able to find the back of the net in the second half scoring two goals.

Lydia Stewart and Dawn Jackwitz both had a fantastic game and showed great strength on the field.
