GAME TIME: Honeys face off against Highfields

THE Chinchilla Honeybears will travel to Toowoomba today to take on the Highfields Women's FC team in a highly anticipated match.

After last week's lack of confidence lead to a narrow loss against the West Wanderers, the Honeybears are eager for a win this afternoon.

Coach Tim Taylor said the team fought hard in the Wanderers match but when they needed to control possession the Honeybears were a bit too forward thinking.

"This definitely played into (the Wanderers) hands a bit. They are a good passing side and if you give them too much possession eventually they will create chances,” he said.

"The stand out of the match for me was Gabby Hicks. She made some amazing saves to keep us in the game today even after she hurt her wrist she got it strapped and wanted to go back on the field which just shows the sort of character she has,

"Claire Valler and Jess Bolewski also communicated well and really kept us in the game at times,”

The Honeybears will need everything they've got today to get Highfields on the back foot and keep them there.

Today's game starts at 1pm and is being played on a new football field at 220 Barracks Road, Highfields.
