Sluggish Grubs beat Frenchville at home

CLINTON FC Grubs had a sluggish start to their match against Frenchville, arguably the best football team in central Queensland, on Saturday night at Clinton Oval.

The Grubs wanted to get the upper hand over their rivals this season after they lost to them in the grand final last year, and the year before.

But the match didn't start how they would have wanted with Frenchville scoring an easy goal within the first two minutes.

Assistant coach Dan Horton said the goal was a catalyst for his team to lift its intensity. "It was a funny game, both teams were tentative and didn't want to make a mistake," he said.

Grubs came back to equalise 20 minutes later through Mitch Innocend who has been playing through the pain of a knee injury.

He took a shot from the 18 yard box but it was blocked.

The ball came back to him, he went again and scored.

The two teams went to half time level on 1-1.

Grubs were the next team to score with only 20 minutes left in the game.

Innocend ran down the sideline and crossed it in front of the goals where Ryan Bellert headed it in.

Grubs held off Frenchville for the rest of match to win 2-1.
