BINGERA gave Sunbury a massive case of the blues when it shook off the unwanted tag of runners-up in the women's football thanks to a stunning 5-0 win in the Three Cities League grand final at the weekend.

From the opening moments is was clear Bingera was a class above its opponents and the Maryborough-based team had no chance of repeating the heroics it performed in beating Moore Park to make it to the grand final.

The Sunbury box was a scene of despair as Bingera dominated the game, and the theatrics performed by the coaches did little to sway the referee when one of their players was beaten in the contest.

There wasn't an aspect of the game Bingera was beaten in and the Madelyn McCracken-led team would have beaten almost any opponent, the way it played.

McCracken had been part of the team which finished runner-up for "too many years" and she said it was great to have a trophy presented to them instead of watching it being handed to another captain.

"I'm feeling very ecstatic, it's been a long time since Bingera ladies won a competition," McCracken said.

"It's a very good feeling especially after all these years where we've either been runner-up or we just missed out."

Summing up the game, McCracken said Kara Fines and Alex Farrell were the best players and the win gave her team a boost of confidence for the rest of the Bundaberg Division 1 season.

This year was the first Three Cities League between Division 1 women's teams from Bundaberg, Maryborough and Hervey Bay and McCracken said she hoped the competition was contested again in 2015.

"I really did enjoy playing in the Three Cities this year because it just adds a bit of variety.

It's a good change instead of playing the same teams every other week and it's been a really good competition and hopefully it continues," she said.
