Forfeit and draw starts off CQHL
HOCKEY: In what was a weekend of round one forfeits, the Meteors men's side were automatic winners.
Sparks forfeited the first game of the season and the unfortunate scenario left Meteors player Jordyn Wilson not happy.
"It was pretty frustrating for us where our men were champing at the bit to play and were prepared and ready to go," he said.
Meteors meet Rockhampton Wanderers this Saturday at 4.30pm.
It was a thrilling 1-1 draw between Gladstone Souths and Meteors in what was a high quality CQHL women's game.
Meteors drew first blood when Joanna Homann scored midway into the first half.
It could have been more had it not been for Souths' defence and Wilson said the Meteors women enjoyed playing together.
"We dominated field position and had numerous goal scoring chances though just couldn't convert," Wilson said.
Standouts for Meteors were Brooke Hansen, Kellie Pagel, Zoe Calis, and Homann. Meteors meet Sparks on Saturday at 5.50pm.
