FOOTBALL: The Chinchilla Honeybears embark on the Toowoomba Football League final series this Sunday as they take on Highfields in their knockout semi-final.

The two teams have met three times this season, with the Honeybears coming out victorious on two occasions.

The first was a friendly game in Toowoomba which the Honeybears won 3-0. The second was a 4-2 win to Highfields in Chinchilla and the final meeting was 3-1 to the Honeybears, so it all points to Sunday's game being a tense and tight affair.

The Honeybears warmed up for their semi-final with a pair of friendly games against a young and enthusiastic U16 South West representative side. The first meeting was last weekend in Toowoomba with the Honeybears winning the match 2-1, thanks to a brace from Honeybears striker Sally Carroll. The second game was a much different affair with the South West side claiming a 3-0 victory.

Coach Tim Taylor said his side have a few key players back from injury and is looking forward to what the team can produce in the finals series.

"We now have everyone back from injury and the squad is looking extremely good at training. The mood is good and now we just need to turn up and get the job done on Sunday.”
