Bingera break Cup drought

THERE is plenty of sporting talent in the McCracken family.

As Bundy's Rheed McCracken prepares for a tilt at the Paralympics in Rio, his sister Madelyn stole the show on Saturday in the division one women's football cup final.

Playing for Bingera she scored a hat-trick in a man of the match display as they smashed Brothers Aston Villa 6-1.

The cup win broke an eight-year drought at the club for women's football.

Talking after the triumph the leading scorer in the Wide Bay women's league said the start was the difference.

"We talked about starting strong and we started off really well," she said.

"We got three goals up (before half time) and just kept our consistency."

McCracken said it was also a team effort with Debbie Caldwell and Katrina White playing well.

The team is also looking forward to the rest of the season.

"It's our first title for this group so we'll gain plenty of confidence," she said.

"The plan now is to win four titles including the Wide Bay League, Cup, and the minor premiership."
