Villa rues its missed chances
FOOTBALL: Brothers Aston Villa still can't believe it lost on Saturday to the United Warriors.
Despite the most entries inside its rival's penalty box all season, Villa failed to convert when it counted to be kept scoreless for the first time this season.
To make matters worse, a goal right on half-time gave the United Warriors a 1-0 win to secure a home grand final in Hervey Bay in two weeks' time.
Talking after the match, Villa coach Glen Sparozvich said it was a frustrating night for all involved.
"Our execution let us down in the end,” he said.
"We hit the crossbar and the post but just couldn't find the net.”
With Villa now set to battle The Waves for the final grand final spot, Sparozvich said he would be looking at the positives from the contest to get the team over what happened against the Warriors.
"We weren't outplayed and I can't fault the effort of the team,” he said.
"We just didn't take our opportunities, which we will need to do against the Waves this week.”
Villa will take on The Waves this Saturday at Martens Oval.
