Clinton clinch CQPL local derby

SOCCER: Clinton FC played out a 2-0 win over Central FC in the local derby clash last Saturday night

With the Central Queensland Premier League semi- finals kicking off next weekend, both sides did not want to give anything away.

Clinton assistant coach Dan Horton said the game was a scrappy one with a bit of a niggle in it.

"We created a lot of chances and scored in each half but at times we lacked a bit of hunger and were just going through the motions," Horton said.

Central coach Joel Maudsley was disappointed with the loss but was focused on next weekend's upcoming semi- final.

"We rested some of our players and tried a few different things but we want to be ready to travel to Yeppoon and play Capricorn Coast," Maudsley said.
