Teams? four-week wait

By RACHAEL BORICH ? SOUTHSIDE United and CQU Berserker will have had a four-week waiting period before they can get a shot at scoring maximum points in the Capricornia Soccer League.

It was an early night for the Southside and CQU Berserker first division players on Saturday night when Jardine Park lost power with five minutes remaining in the first half.

The black out also signalled early 50th birthday celebrations for Southside coach Will Burns.

It was another weekend passed with no points resulting for the clubs after the previous round's games were washedout in Rockhampton.

They now have a two-week break with Anzac Day and May Day long weekends.

Berserker coach Brad Smith said there had been no official word on when the game with Southside would be replayed.

Before darkness fell over Jardine Park an enthralling match was being played out with Southside hitting the bar off a free kick.

It was a game which could have gone either way.

"I think we're a chance this season and we still have twothirds of a season left still to improve,'' Burns said.

Despite only 40 minutes of football being played it was still enough time for Southside's Michael Bettridge to be red carded and now spend some time on the sideline.

At Ryan Park, Frenchville's Dane Howard laid the perfect platform for his appearance for the Queensland Roar in Rockhampton this weekend.

Howard drilled four goals in Frenchville's 5-0 win over Bluebirds United.

The defending premiers held a 3-0 lead at half-time before going on to taste victory and take themselves to the top of the table.
