Football: Queens Park claim win despite having player sent off

A HIT to the head from behind sparked a melee in Queens Park’s last outing in the Metro Football League.

The Queens Park player was sent off and later suspended for 12 weeks (six weeks suspended) for the strike on the Warwick Greenwood player.

He will serve the suspended six weeks on top of any other penalty if found guilty of an offence over the next five years.

The top-of-the-table Queens Park won the clash 9.11 (65) to 6.6 (42).

The Bulldogs return to the field this Sunday in an away game against Alkimos after a bye last weekend.

Alkimos is coming off a defeat to Baldivis, 16.16 (112) to 13.8 (86).

Warwick Greenwood, coming off a 13.8 (86) to 10.13 (73) win over Koongamia, is away to Baldivis.

In division 2, Innaloo 19.10 (124) defeated Midland 8.8 (56).

Warwick Greenwood B 17.12 (114) beat Bayswater 8.6 (54).

This Sunday, Midland is away to Dwellingup. Warwick Greenwood has the bye.
